“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”
One of the most exigent and intricate ‘trekking peaks’ in the Everest region, a climb to Lobuche Peak is a stimulating way to a more adventurous journey to the eastern Himalayas of Nepal. Lobuche Peak is not quite as high as Mera Peak (6,476m) or Island peak (6,189m) but is officially more demanding. Lobuche is a favorite peak for climbing because of the incomparable panorama view seen from the summit of Lobuche Peak (6,119m) including Everest (8,848m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Cho Oyu (8,201m) and the grandiose vistas of the whole Everest region.
Our 19 days Lobuche Peak Climbing takes you to one of the most exciting peak climbing experiences and is usually ascended from the south-east ridge. The Lobuche Peak Climb starts with your arrival at Kathmandu for your cultural sightseeing tour of the world famous UNESCO World Heritage sites around the valley. We shall explore the cultural and historical heritages in Kathmandu valley that takes us back to the medieval time period. The real experience of our trek starts with the scenic flight to Lukla the gateway of Everest region from Kathmandu, to start our following trek to the village of Phakding which in itself is a splendid trail through beautiful forests, glaciers and rivers, Sherpa villages and monasteries with endless great views of the Khumbu Mountains. We shall traverse through the naturally scenic lush valleys full of prayer flags & prayer wheels and rich rhododendron forests to reach our next point of our destination, the Sherpa hub of Namche Bazaar. Upon reaching Namche Bazaar we shall stay one more day there so that you can properly acclimatize for our journey ahead. From here onward we shall start ascending up towards the cultural hotspots of Tyangboche and Dingboche to reach Lobuche for a hike up to Gorakshep, the Mount Everest or Everest Base Camp before our ascent of the Lobuche peak. This shall follow ascend to our destination of the Lobuche summit. Now onwards the paths up the valley from Lobuche becomes progressively more vertical and stony as we near the Lobuche Base Camp, 4950m. With an adequate amount of days spent at this kind of substantial altitude, the climbers must have no problem acclimatizing to the altitude here. After our successful climb we shall then trail back down through Pheriche, Tyangboche and Monjo to reach Lukla before returning back to Kathmandu.
Lobuche Peak is considered as a challenging peak climb which requires superior amount of dedication, good physical fitness and reasonable technical climbing knowledge of peak climbing. March to May and September to November are considered as the finest time for climbing this peak.
