HIGHLIGHTS
  • One of the most popular trek in the Khumbu region.
  • Technical 6000 meters ascent.
  • 360 degree views of Everest and Makalu Himalaya ranges.
Lobuche Peak actually includes two different summits, East (6119m.) and West (6145m.). An uninterrupted edge links them but there is a significant distance between the two. The east is identified as a trekking peak while the west is regarded as an expedition peak (meaning that it is only for experienced climbers). This climbing trip is for Lobuche East Peak - a climbing peak, and hence a relatively easy climbing peak (which can be done also if you do not have any previous climbing experience), firstly climbed by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyaljen Sherpa in 1984.

Lobuche East Peak, an eye-catching trekking peak, is a great little challenge. Its South Face goes down to the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier. Lobuche East is ascended by moving up a marked notch hiking up steep snowy slopes. Most of the times, the peak is ascended on a ridge leading up to the summit.

Lobuche East peak will reward you stunning views of mighty Mt. Everest as well as many peaks in the Rongbuk region of Tibet. The ecstatic period you will get after scaling one of the famous Peaks in the Everest region will be a memorable experience, rewarded among others by stunning views. Other great mountains that you will witness are Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, and Mt. Makalu. On this trip you will also get several changes to sip tea with local sherpas and hear about their mountain adventures.

This peak is recommended to be done during Mar-June and Sep-Mid-Nov. We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic climbing experience, even of you are not experienced within mountaineering.

“We enjoyed our trek very much. Our guide Raju and our porters Ramos and Dawa were friendly and helpful. A tip: If you decide to do this trek in winter, please bring some snow irons for under your shoes. Our guide told us they weren't necessary but I rented them and walked so much easier in the snow and ice! Would recommend this company, if you want to change anything in your itinerary, they are very accommedating and make it happen. Also they are very relax and calm. Everything is possible in Nepal!”

“We did the 12 day trek in October 2019. Our guide Nuri was an absolute star - great fun and very knowledgeable. The trek itself was tough in places but overall very manageable for a healthy adult. Absolutely beautiful scenery throughout the trek.

Some tips:
The teahouses were mostly comfortable (though very cold at night as you get higher up!) and the food options were varied and usually tasty. Dal baht highly recommended for all! Hot showers are available at all the teahouses for a price. In the bigger villages charging can be done at the bakeries and bars in exchange for a purchase. For anyone wondering, as we were, whether they should take Diamox prior to the trip, we were recommended not to and were overall fine, apart from the odd headache.

A big thanks to Nuri Sherpa for an amazing time. Enjoy!!”

“The trek proper was fantastic - I was paired with a great female guide and porter who made me feel safe at every step. It was an incredible itinerary as well, being able to see Poon Hill, Ghandruk and the Jhinu Hot Springs. I highly recommend this company and won't be travelling with anyone else when I return.”

GOOD TO KNOW
CANCELLATION

Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.

Other Practical InformationNOTE: 1. Urgent Notice for Domestic Flights (To/From Lukla) The Government of Nepal has announced the halt of all flight operations from Kathmandu to Lukla, tentatively. Flights to Lukla have now been re-directed to Manthali airport in the district of Ramechhap which is 132 Km east of Kathmandu until further notice, to avoid the heavy traffic congestion at Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap physically sits in the Tamakoshi River Valley and is located 132 km from Kathmandu (an approximately 3-4 hours drive). However, the early morning flight which departs at 6 am in the morning from Kathmandu will be available throughout this period, subject to early bookings at least 6 months to 1 year in advance prior to all Everest trips, which can be tedious in the peak season periods of spring and autumn. This too, is not guaranteed due to inclement weather patterns in these climatic changing times. All other flights after 6 am to Lukla will only be available from the airport in Ramechhap. Other than this, optionally, helicopter arrangements can be made for 5 people on a sharing basis with an addition of USD 500 for a one way flight per person with an exclusive choice [only yours] to change your airplane flights to the helicopter. We will try to coordinate ways to form groups at the airport for this arrangement, but again, this too cannot be guaranteed, especially in peak season periods. The drive to Ramechhap and flight to Lukla is almost always guaranteed unless the flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions. Travelers are requested to advise us on your preferred alternatives for flights to/from Lukla if/when possible delays or disruptions occur. We would truly appreciate your patience to bear with us in the mentioned circumstances above. Climate change and our, should we say, blessed geographical conditions; which can be a monster when least expected, has become the relevant cause for this, making us victims of unseen circumstances beyond our control. Thank you so much for your kind understanding. Recommended gear: Waterproof jackets Warm fleece jackets, jerseys, pullovers Good boots, either light-weight trekking boots or light leather boots Sleeping bags (preferably those rated -20 degree Celsius. You can rent them in Kathmandu) A comfortable day pack, preferably with a waistband Fleece wind-stopper jackets (optional) Waterproof (preferably breathable fabric) shell jackets Down vests and/or jackets (optional) Lightweight gloves Heavyweight gloves or mittens with a waterproof shell outer Sun hats/scarfs Light balaclavas/warm fleece hats Sunglasses with UV protection T-shirts Underwear Hiking shorts Lightweight cotton long pants Light, expedition-weight thermal bottoms Fleece or woollen pants Waterproof (preferably breathable fabric) shell pants Thin, lightweight inner socks Thick, warm wool hiking socks Hiking boots with spare laces Camp shoes (sneakers and/or sandals) Other necessary equipment: Headlamps (e.g. Petzl Zoom) with spare bulbs and batteries Small pad or combination lock-to-lock trek bag Basic first aid kits (We also provide a comprehensive first aid medical kit and oxymeter to the head guide) Large plastic bags to keep items dry inside your trekking bag Day packs (approximately 2500 to 3000 cubic inches) Water bottles (2 bottles recommended) Toiletries Small wash towels
