Lobuche Peak Climbing

The Lobuche East peak is a fantastic climb for experienced and new climbers to enjoy, it offers the opportunity to explore new as well as known peaks in Nepal’s vast Himalayan landscape. Throughout the trip we will see some of the most stunning snow-capped mountain peaks, once we reach Everest Base Camp and do an acclimatization trek to Kalapatthar we will see views of Ama Dablam, Tawache, and other well-known Himalayan peaks. Lobuche east peak is an amalgamation of several small summits where we climb below the main glaciers from the Lobuche base camp as we get access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche from where we get to see the Khumbu glacier which is simply stunning. The summiting of Lobuche can be a challenge as we climb to the top through steep snowy slopes, the reward is an accomplishment and view that will stay for a lifetime.

The adventure begins by trekking the world-famous Everest Base Camp route, then onto Kalapatthar, giving us the opportunity to acclimatize gradually to the altitude, whilst taking on some beautiful hikes. The landscapes that we are exposed to will remain etched in our memories for a lifetime. Here you will be able to capture some of the best pictures on the planet and keep the treasured moments. During our adventure it is not just the stunning peaks that we climb and witness that make the trip so special, we will also visit lively villages full of tradition and serene monasteries built on some of the toughest terrains.
