Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. Makalu 8463m, Mt. Nuptse 7861m, Mt. Pumori 7161m, and the majestic Mt. Ama Dablam 6812m, including other peaks. Lobuche East Peak Climbing offers an attractive summit with magnificent views of Ama Dablam, Pumori, Makalu, Nuptse, Everest, and Baruntse. Lobuche Peak with Everest base camp trek will keep you both physically challenged and visually delighted. Between these peaks are a sharp gap and a considerable distance. The Summit of the peak is exposed and often covered with moldy ice. We stay only a short while on the summit, after which we back down again towards Base Camp. Getting back to Base Camp also marks the turnaround point of this tour. We will now retrace our steps back, passing through Namche Bazaar and back to Lukla, where we take a return flight back to Kathmandu.
Our representative will meet you at Tribhuvan International Airport on your arrival schedule. You will be greeted and then transferred to the hotel in the heart of Kathmandu city. Our staff will help you until the check-in procedure ends at Hotel. You can either have a rest at the Hotel or visit our office for collecting additional information about the trip.
Today you will be transferred to the domestic airport for an early morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and the entire Everest region. After landing at the airstrip of Lukla, we start our trek by following a trail that gradually ascends as we trek along the left bank of the Dudh Koshi river. Our trek passes through pine forest and beautifully painted Mani walls to arrive at Ghat. From there a mixture of both uphill and downhill trekking will lead us to Phakding.
We continue our trekking along the trail with several ups and downs. We will make a stop at the National Park Service where the park entrance fee is collected. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, we emerge at a ridge top rest area that offers excellent views of Everest 8848m and Lhotse 8516m. The climb eases somewhat as the path goes along the dense rhododendron and pine forest to arrive at Namche Bazaar The Sherpa Capital.
In order to avoid any kind of altitude sickness and to ensure successful summit climb of Lobuche Peak, we will take a day rest at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and exploration. Namche Bazaar is an extensive market town where there is always something to see and places to explore. For acclimatization, we can hike up to Khunde Hospital which was set up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or make an hour's walk up to Syangboche at 3800 meters for enjoying magnificent views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kanguru.
After spending a good day rest at Namche Bazaar, we will follow the trail that descends passing through the village of Tashinga. From there, we will make a long climb to reach Tyangboche. The first part of the climb is very steep, however, the climb eases as we trek through a densely forested area until we arrive at the stone gate built by lamas which mark our entry into Tyangboche.
From Tyangboche we will gradually climb up the mountain path, enjoying the best views of Ama Dablam and Kantega as they appear on the opposite bank. We continue our uphill trekking that passes through several chortens, the upper path passes Pangboche, and the lower path to Pangboche Olin with its stone wall enclosed with potato fields. Our trail climbs slowly towards a big Mani Stupa. From there, our trail is a fairly moderate trek all the way to Dingboche.
Leaving Dingboche, our trail is a downhill trekking towards Pheriche village. After about two hours of trekking from Pheriche, we will arrive at Dugla at 4,595 meters with a small wooden bridge over the river of the Khumbu glacier. We will stop at Dugla for lunch before continuing our uphill trekking for about an hour. During our trek, we will have magnificent views of Mt. Pumori and other high peaks west of Everest. We continue our trek until we arrive at Lobuche. [if you seek the more challenging route you can trek from Dingboche to Lobuche through Kongma La Pass(5535m). Kongma La Pass is one of high altitude passes in the Everest Region.]
From Lobuche, our trek continues following the rocky moraine path with good views of glacial ponds and icebergs down below the Khumbu Glacier. After ascending the last of the rocky moraine dunes, we will trek a short downhill to arrive at Gorakshep. Gorakshep is a flat field below Kala Patthar 5545m and is the last stop with comfy teahouses. From Gorakshep, we will follow the trail that winds through a rocky path and the Khumbu glacier towards Everest Base Camp. We will spend a short time at the Everest Base Camp and then retrace our steps back to Gorakshep for our overnight stay.
Today we will accomplish an early morning hike to Kala Patthar at 5,545 meters for enjoying the magnificent and up-close sunrise view over Mt Everest 8848 meters, Mt Lhotse 8516 meters, Mt Makalu 8481 meters, Mt Cho Oyu 8201 meters and other surrounding peaks. After spending quality time at Kala Patthar we will retrace our steps back to Gorakshep. After having lunch at Gorakshep, we will retrace our steps and follow the same trail that heads back to Lobuche.
Today is a rather short and easy day of trekking. We will spend some time in Lobuche before following an easy trail that leads to Lobuche Peak Base Camp. Once we arrive at the base camp our Sherpa crew will set up the camp and make necessary preparations for setting up additional camps at higher altitudes. Since it is a short day of trekking we will have enough time to rest, much needed for further climb to higher altitudes and for the main summit climb of Lobuche Peak.
Leaving the base camp we will follow a narrow trail that is often snow covered and icy. We may have to make use of ropes and crampons during our climbing trek today. Our ascend journey can be very tiring, so resting every now and then helps in restoring energy. We will reach a good campsite at 5400 meters, our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camp and make final checks on our climbing gears and our health conditions before the main summit climb of Lobuche Peak, the following day.
Today is the day we all have been desperately waiting for. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears, we start early with the aim to reach the summit before noon as the strong winds after midday can create obstacles in reaching the summit. Following the footsteps and instructions of our experienced climbing experts, we will climb up the south ridge overcoming several technical sections and head towards the summit. Our tiring climb to the summit is rewarded with magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Nuptse, Pumori, Ama Dablam, and other surrounding high peaks. We will spend short quality time at the summit before descending down following the same route and head back to reach the base camp.
After successfully achieving the Lobuche Peak summit, we will follow the trail that passes through cairns and memorials that have been erected in the memory of climbers who lost their lives when climbing Mount Everest. Our trail is a gradually descent journey passing through Pheriche and then continuing trekking until we arrive at Pangboche for our overnight stay.
From Pangboche, our trail is mostly downhill trekking towards Deboche. From there we will gradually climb to reach Tyangboche. We trek on a leveled path for a while before descending down to Phungi Thanga. We will climb for a while passing through Kyangjuma and from there it is a pleasant walk all the way back to the Sherpa Capital Namche Bazaar.
The last day of our Lobuche Peak with Everest Base Camp Trek leads from Namche Bazaar via Monjo to Lukla. We will descend passing through densely forested areas filled with rhododendron, oak, and pine trees. Our trek is a pleasant walk, except for a few short uphill climbs and then down to the Bhote Koshi River crossing it three times. We will make a final uphill climb of approximately about forty-five minutes will bring us back to Lukla.
After breakfast, we will take an early morning flight from Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. You would surely like to see as much of Kathmandu as possible.
Our Airport Representative will drop you at the International Airport as per your flight schedule.
