Lobuche East is an attractive peak that comprises of several small summits.

You don't have to be a climbing expert to do the climb, however, as our experiences sherpas will help even beginners without any climbing experience, with reaching the true summit as well!
Climbing Lobuche Peak starts with a scenic flight to Lukla - the gateway to the Everest and Khumbu Region. Following the impressive trail, we walk through dense rhododendron forest towards Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Everest region. After a few days trekking we will reach Lobuche East Base Camp, the starting point of our our climb.
Once we have checked our physical and mental fitness we prep ourselves and our climbing gear for the summit attempt. When reaching the summit, we will be able to enjoy magnificent views of Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. Makalu 8463m, Mt. Nuptse 7861m, Mt. Pumori 7161m, and the majestic Mt. Ama Dablam 6812m, including other peaks. We stay only a short while on the summit, after which we back down again towards Base Camp.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.
On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants.
