Lobuche East is a very challenging, but yet gratifying, peak to climb. To reach our destination, we will first trek along scenic trails experiencing the beauty of nature and centuries old traditions of the people of this region. We will continue the journey from Everest Base Camp from where we will have a splendid view of glaciers and surrounding mountains.
The best time for ascending the peak is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). The peak can also be climbed during winter but the weather will be harsher.
Throughout the trek, the guides and porters were incredible. They made sure we were all well fed and had everything we needed for a great trip. I had the unfortunate situation of becoming sick early on in the trek. I had terrible gastric issues followed by symptoms of acute mountain sickness and, in the end, needed to be heli-rescued from the Everest region (Note: this is rare- so don't let that deter you!). The guides Ramesh and Nik monitored me the whole time and put my wellness as their priority. I was taken to a hospital in Kathmandu where Ramesh and Chhatra checked in with me regularly and made sure I was okay. After I recovered in hospital, I now had a few days free, so Chhatra helped me arrange a side trip with Ramesh to Pokhara and Austalian Camp to view the Annapurna Mountain Range at sunrise. All to say, the care and consideration from Chattra and his team were there the entire time I was in Nepal, and they made sure my trip would be a memorable one despite having to cut the trek short.
If you're looking for prompt and attentive correspondence; very experienced and personable guides; and a team with a high level of service who makes your health and safety their main priority, then I definitely recommend booking with Nepal Eco Adventure. You will not be disappointed.”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
