Our Lobuche Peak Climb provides an excellent introduction to the world of Himalayan mountaineering. Lobuche’s twin summits tower high above the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier near Everest Base Camp. The West Peak (20,160 feet) is considered a difficult, technical climbing objective. Our route ascends the more straightforward East Peak (20,075’), which is considered a trekking peak. Even so, the route to the summit includes stretches of moderately steep and exposed terrain and is a superb challenge for both new and experienced climbers. From the summit, we enjoy a dramatic 360° view of the Himalayas, with five of the planet’s fourteen 8,000-meter peaks visible in the distance.
Lobuche 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.
This adventure combines an ascent of Lobuche Peak with the classic trek to Everest Base Camp. For most trekkers, simply seeing Mount Everest from Kala Pattar or from the base of the Khumbu Icefall is a dream come true. Lobuche Peak enriches the experience, offering an ideal objective for new climbers and for veteran mountaineers seeking to expand their high-altitude experience or summit their first Himalayan peak. During the spring climbing season, this expedition includes one night in Everest Base Camp. The itinerary allows ample time for acclimatization to ensure a safe and successful journey.
Day 01: Arrival and transfer to Hotel in KathmanduUpon arrival in Kathmandu Airport, our airport representative will welcome you and give you short info about Kathmandu and directly drive to the Hotel. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 02: Sightseeing for a full day in Kathmandu Valley.World heritage sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhu Nath, Boudha Nath, Pasupati Nath, etc. Preparation for the trekking.
Day 03: Kathmandu fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2,620 m)Today we fly to Lukla, the village where our trek to Everest Base Camp begins. The airport in Lukla is the Tenzing Norgay Airport, and landing on the STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) runway is an experience in itself. It is usually very busy in Lukla as different expeditions are getting everything organized for the trek. From here on out, there are no more vehicles or roads, just a network of villages connected by footpaths. After we meet our Sherpa team we start trekking along the Dudh Kosi River as we travel to Phakding. We spend the night at a small teahouse on the bank of the milky-blue Dudh Kosi.
Day 04: Phakding trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m)Hike to historic Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the high Himalayas and the Sherpa community's central meeting place. Namche is where lowland porters bearing supplies meet the highland Sherpa and Tibetan people who have journeyed over high passes from many miles away to trade food and supplies for their home or village. Namche's busy shops, delicious bakeries, and jovial feel are a welcome sight after making the long climb up from the valley floor below.
Day 05: Rest day in Namche for acclimatizationWe build upon our acclimatization by going for a short hike to the surrounding villages of Khunde and Khumjung to visit the historic Hillary School and Hillary Hospital. Our hike takes us along the more remote paths between the villages, offering glimpses of the peaks higher up the valley, before returning us to Namche for the evening.
Day 06: Namche Trek to Deboche (3,757 m)We leave Namche and climb up the valley to Tengboche, the largest Sherpa monastery in the Khumbu area. From the monastery's front steps we have excellent views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam. We descend from the ridge where the monastery is located into the quiet forest of fir and rhododendron below that surround our teahouse at Deboche.
Day 07: Deboche Trek to Dingboche (4,400 m)Downhill to Diboché then up a gentle prolonged incline, from end to end of patches of forests along the way and crossing a suspension bridge, we arrive in Pangboche. After a decent lunch, it’s three hours to Dingboche in the presence of the majestic Mt AmaDablum. Dingboche, with around forty households, is home to approximately two hundred locals
Day 08: Acclimatize day in DingbocheLike in Namche, this acclimatization day built into this programme also requires all to go up a sharp ascent towards NangkarTshang (5,616). Atop this vantage point, the wonder can only be rightfully explained by those who have made it there.
Day 09: Dingboche trek to Lobuche (4,900 m)Before that demanding ascent to Dugla, we pass a chorten and some memorials on the way. After a steep uphill to ChukpoLari, the trail arrives in Lobuche with the walk for the last twenty minutes or so gentle on the legs. Lobuche, where we stop for the night, is a very small settlement with only two or three constructions.
Day 10: Lobuche-Gorakshep (5,100 m). 3hrs (Optional hike to Everest Base Camp)Leaving Lobuche we walk parallel to the lower reaches of the Khumbu Glacier until we cross over the rocky moraine of the Khangri Glacier into Gorak Shep, the final outpost before Everest Base Camp. In the afternoon we climb to the summit Kala Patar, a small peak across on the valley from Everest on the lower slopes of Pumori, that gives way to stunning views of Everest.
Day 11: Hike to Everest Base Camp 5,357m and trek back to Lobuche (4,930m)Early morning start your trip to Everest Base Camp for amazing sunrise at the closest proximity of Lhotse and Mt. Everest and on the button, you will view the biggest Khumbu glacier. After breakfast trek to lobuche for your comfort overnight.
Day 12: Trek to Lobuche base camp (4,910m)The trekking trail is straightforward, starting out flat and getting progressively steeper and rockier. At Lobuche Base Camp, we are rewarded with beautiful views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pokalde, Thamserku, Kantega, and other Himalayan peaks. Our guides will provide you with training on peak climbing techniques after lunch. They teach you how to use climbing gears such as ice axe, climbing boot and crampons, harness, ascender etc. and on how to go up and down using ropes.
Day 13: Summit to Lobuche Peak (6119m) then back to Pheriche (4210m)We start to climb Lobuche peak early in the morning but it depends on the weather condition. It takes about ten hours to reach the summit. We can see the panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Cholatse, Pumori, Changri and more from the peak. After a safe climb to the peak, we slowly make our way down to Pheriche.
Day 14: Pheriche Trek back to NamcheWalking through the wide valley offers you the great views of Himalaya and takes your time to visit the giant Sherpa village and monastery along the way to Namche Bazar. You might see the Trans Himalayan Market in Namche Bazaar.

We strongly recommend the purchase of travel cancellation insurance to protect you from the unexpected. You aren’t likely to think of it now, but people do get ill, break a bone, have a family emergency or get assigned to a last minute business trip. If you are in remote areas, please note that emergency rescue & evacuation can be very expensive.
We also strongly urge you to consider rescue and evacuation insurance if your own policy does not provide the coverage needed. Services available may include, but are not limited to, helicopter evacuation, medical care, etc.
If you choose not to purchase insurance, you assume full responsibility.
