Lobuche East lying at an elevation of 6119 m, though counted among the most demanding trekkers’ peaks in the Everest region it is worthy to go for. It requires more dedication and climbing skill to use different climbing equipments. There are two different summits to Lobuche Peak- Lobuche East (6119m) and Lobuche West (6145m). Even though a constant ridge ties them there is a gap and a significant distance amid them.

Lobuche is an eye-catching summit, presenting a variety of offered trails and a wide range for novel lines. If you would wish to make a trip to Everest Base Camp, yet stay for longer time and set off higher then, Lobuche east Peak climbing is the worthy choice. All you need to have is strength to climb higher and get the skills to use crampons, ice axe, ropes and more. Then, our guides and Sherpas will leave you one day back downward the vale to ascend this stunning peak, with finest views of Mt. Everest from the summit of Lobuche. From the stunning Everest Base Camp the route further climbs to a High Camp at an elevation of 5552 m. From the High Camp we will trek further from there messing up to the glacier taking us to the summit of Lobuche at 6090 m. The vertical climb to the edge, on the summit day, is usually fixed with approximately 500 meters long rope.

This 21-days Lobuche East peak Climbing/ Expedition designed by Mountain Sherpa Trekking is a wonderful option to walk into gigantic Himalayan and move higher from the Everest Base Camp. Lobuche Peak is typically technical which requires some basic mountaineering skills necessary to reach to the summit.

About 3 hours ascend through the breathtaking pine forest, as a final point we will reach a well-off trading and administrative settlement Namche Bazaar. Overnight at lodge in Namche Bazaar.

Today, in Namche Bazaar, we will acclimatize to get used to with the altitude of (3,440m). An acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) as well as health expert gives an opinion to grasp at least one additional night. We will have a day tour here and visit Sagarmatha (Everest) National park where we can explore Sherpa culture and learn about the variety of plants and animals of the Everest region. After that, we can plan a side trip to large long-established Sherpa village Khumjung with the beautiful sights of Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Khaantaiga, Mt, Everest and many more.  Back to Namche Bazaar for overnight

Today after finishing our breakfast we set up our trek. The fairly flat route will let us view astounding panorama of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and witness the close up views of Thamserku, and Khangtaiga. The lane continues and we can view wild lives like musk deer, colorful pheasant and more.

Everest and numerous more peaks. Also, we will see the famous Gomba (Tengboche Monastery) becoming visible.

We bit by bit go up higher than the Imja Khola and get to the tea houses found at Orsho before going across the old glacial moraines on the way to our hotel, we will see the community of Dingboche. The background is impressive here while the views of Everest is hidden at the back the Lhotse-Nuptse edge; and we will also see the massive peaks that goes up above the eastern end valley. 

Dingboche is a striking jumble of small fields bounded by stone walls caring the crops of barley as well as potatoes from the frosty winds. At the back of our lodge in Dingboche, the huge rock looks of Tawoche seem as if we are living in something called heaven. Walking to Chhukung is an additional option on this day. The things to see here are amazing in this valley; the towering south look of Lhotse lying to the north, Island Peak in the central part of the valley and the nameless peaks is ,makes a series on the southern end of the valley. Overnight at lodge in Dingboche.

After the sunrise, we come up the small point at the back the village above Pheriche Valley. At the top, Tawoche and Cholatse (6440m) strikes us with its image which seems to tilt frontward from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of Cho La is prominent. The walking is now by and large flat on wide-open fields, but make sure that you are well hydrated. Then, we cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of Khumbu Glacier. The fantastic view of Pumori (7145m) and, across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m), are seen at the top of the valley at the same time Everest disappears behind the gigantic walls of Nuptse and Lhotse.

Today we visit Everest Base Camp 17,500ft/5334m. This is the day we get a small taste of what an Everest climber's life is like living at Base Camp and above for many weeks. You will feel the challenge as you hike up the glacial moraine towards Base Camp. It will not feel much like the movies when you get there. The challenges of living at altitude will be very tangible. Everest Base Camp is a famous but temporary habitat among the glacial boulders and ice of the upper Khumbu Glacier. The full mass of the Khumbu Icefall will not be viewed until you walk into Base Camp, but the creaks and groans of the glacier and the roar of avalanches from the slopes around will be heard during the entire day's hike. We return to our lodge at Gorak Shep with memories that will last a lifetime

We will trek to Kala Patar (5545m) in the morning to observe wonderful sunrise views from this amazing vantage point. Kala Patar is the rock-strewn peak under Pumori. It is a hard-hitting stroll due to the elevation, yet the top view is away from our imagination. We get going for Lobuche, where we will halt for lunch.

From Lobuche, we will trek to Lobuche base camp. After walking on flat plane, the trail to the Lobuche Base Camp at an elevation of 4,950m gets steeper and rock-strewn path. We move further next to the Lobuche Glacier which bestows vistas of Ama Dablam, Pokalde, Cholatse, Thamserku, Kantega and several other Himalayas. Overnight in Lobuche East Base Camp.

On this day, we wake up early at around 2 am and have our breakfast before beginning our climb. It is important we reach the summit before noon because in the afternoon the strong winds in the high lands might become a barrier for a successful summit. We will see the views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and several more. And then return back further to the high camp again. We spend some time at the summit celebrating and taking pictures, then we get back to the High Camp again for an overnight stay.  All Meals included

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.
