Lobuche Peak Climbing

Everest Base Camp trek with Lobuche East Peak climbing promises you some of the best views of some of the highest mountains in the world such as; Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,029ft), Mt. Nuptse (7,855m/25,771ft), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft), and their neighboring peaks and mountains High Route Adventure, takes you deep into the Everest region locally known as Nepal’s Khumbu region.

Home to the legendary Sherpas and Mt. Sagarmatha is popularly known as Mt. Everest, The Everest region in Nepal offers some exciting trekking trails. The lower elevations up to around 3,000m/9,843ft are forest and jungle trails where the occasional and typical Nepalese cable hang bridges need to be crossed. Higher elevations turn into tundra and barren rock valleys where those iconic snowcapped Himalayan mountains stand.

Your adventure starts with a trek to EBC, the short version of Everest Base Camp. During this trek to base camp, you’ll quickly get used to the terrain and trails. Because the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness, or AMS is real High Route Adventure has planned two acclimatization days during the Everest Base Camp trek with Lobuche East Peak climbing. Once in Namche Bazaar also known as the biggest Sherpa settlement of the Khumbu region and once at Dingboche.

During both acclimatization days, a hiking trip is planned to get used to the higher altitudes. Once you reach Everest Base Camp, you can see the world’s highest glacier called the Khumbu Glacier stretching for twelve kilometers! The next morning a sunrise view trip is organized early in the morning up to Kala Pathar. The views from here are absolutely breathtaking!

Route to the EBC Trek

It’s also on this day that the Everest Base Camp trek with Lobuche East Peak climbing takes a different path than the normal EBC trek or Everest Base Camp trek. High Route Adventure takes you to Lobuche Base Camp, then to High Camp, and ultimately to the summit of Lobuche’s East Peak at 6,119m/20,076ft! As a final highlight of the Everest Base Camp trek with Lobuche East Peak climbing, the views are incredible and unforgettable.

Is this trip the right fit for you?

● Requires a high level of cardio fitness – be able to trek 5-6 hours daily at high altitude before the summit attempt
● Prepare legs through endurance training beforehand to handle steep ascents
● Summit climb traverses glaciers and 45-degree snow slopes, use of ropes, ice axe, and crampons is mandatory
● Mountaineering skills like the use of an ice axe and climbing on snow/ice are needed – previous experience is an advantage
● Mentally prepare for very basic camping conditions at freezing temperatures
● Carry proper cold weather clothing and gear as weather can be unstable with snow storms
● April-May and October-November are the best climbing months; the rest have harsh weather
● As the trip involves staying for days above 5000m, prior high-altitude trekking experience is essential

● Technically straightforward climb, less technical in comparison to Lobuche West

● Trekking through remote mountain areas like the Khumbu Valley on the way to Lobuche offers beautiful high mountain scenery and a peaceful experience away from crowded trails.
● Learning mountaineering techniques like rope work, crampon use, and ice axe skills will expand technical knowledge, benefiting future climbs to even higher summits.
● Much of the trek follows the popular Everest Base Camp trail until diverting to Lobuche.
