Lobuche Peak is close to the world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest. It is has two summits- East and west. As it is located in the Everest region which is also known as Khumbu region attracts the climbers and trekkers all around the world by its natural beauty.
Lobuche Peak is an attractive summit with obtainable routes and new opportunities. And so our planned itinerary shall take you on a merging path of glorious Everest region with exciting peak climbing experiences. Our 19 days Lobuche Peak Climb trek shall starts with a scenic flight to Lukla which is also known as the gateway of Everest region from Kathmandu. Upon reaching Lukla you shall experience the pristine environment of the Khumbhu region with fresh air flowing through the valley. Now we begin trekking upward with marvelous trail through glacial rivers, stunning forests and monasteries with never-ending splendid views of the Khumbu Mountains to reach a village called Phakding. From here onward we shall traverse through the prosperously thriving valleys rich rhododendron forests, suspension bridges with prayer flags & prayer wheels to reach our next point of our trek, the Sherpa capital Namche Bazaar. One extra day shall be spent there in Namche Bazaar in order for us to be appropriately acclimatized for our journey ahead. Commencing forward from Namche Bazaar we shall start mounting up towards the cultural villages 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. From this instant the paths up the valley from Lobuche becomes increasingly more vertical and rocky till we reach the Lobuche Base Camp at an elevated height of 4,950m. With an ample 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, Tengboche and Monjo to reach Lukla before returning back to Kathmandu.
