The Background Is Impressive Here While The Views Of Everest Is Hidden At The Back of 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 make a series on the southern end of the valley.

After the sunrise, we come up to the small point at the back of the village above Pheriche Valley. At the top, Tawoche and Cholatse (6440m) strike us with their 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 are 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 at 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.
During the ascent to Kala Patthar, we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints to click pictures. After several hours of rising, we reach Kalapatthar. From here, we scuttle to climb the rocky outcrop near the summit marked by Cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kalapatthar rocks, and our eyes take in the unbelievable Himalayan views, wandering from one mighty massif to another.
We take as many pictures as we possibly can with our camera so they can last a lifetime. After this we make our way back to Lobuche with a slow descent; for a good night’s rest, which we truly deserve. Overnight at a local lodge after a great day.
From Lobuche, we will trek to Lobuche high camp. After walking on a 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 hight Camp.
On this day, we wake up early at around 2 -3 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 to 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
This is an additional day set aside to manage any unpremeditated hindrances like flight delays or bad weather for climbing. Setting aside an extra day will safeguard that even if we were to face a day’s set back, the expedition will continue therefore guaranteeing a successful ascent of Lobuche peak .
After having our morning breakfast, we walk downhill from Lobuche High Camp and join the Everest Base Camp track at Lobuche again. We stop for our lunch at Lobuche then we again retrace our trail to Pheriche. On the way to Pheriche, we get to enjoy splendid views of Mt. Ama Dablam in the distance.
After having our breakfast, we start our hike to Namche Bazzar, We will stop our Lunch at Tengboche & will see the famous Gomba (Tengboche Monastery). After visiting there, we will start to walk to Namche Bazaar located at an elevation of 3440m. Enjoy a hot shower in clean and comfortable rooms.
Today, we begin to get warmed up by the light cool breeze. Although we are traveling the same route down, we enjoy entirely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron, and pine forests, and in the distance snow-covered peaks.
We take time and walk at our own pace today as this is the last day of our trek. We experience the Sherpa villages' profound faith in Buddhism and the culture of prayer stones and prayer flags while we walk through the villages.
Upon arrival in Lukla, we have plenty of time to relax, stretch those aching legs, and recall the experiences of the last couple of days. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek and climbing experience on a happy note with everyone back safe and sound with smiling faces! Upon arrival in Lukla, we stroll around while our leader will re-confirm our flight ticket. In the evening, we enjoy the last dinner with our sherpa crew and make it a party night, which calls for a celebration.
Today, after a hale and hearty breakfast, we fly back to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. The early morning flight drops us at Kathmandu. We can rest and relax throughout the day at our hotel.If interested, we could buy some gifts to take home from Nepal for loved ones and friends, and relatives; we can visit some nearby shops or venture out to Thamel for typical Nepalese goods.
Mountain Sherpa’s guides either can assist this short excursion, or we can do it ourselves too. If you want to explore any other areas in Kathmandu, you have to manage time for this today as well!
In the evening time, we will attend an exciting celebration dinner together for completing Lobuche east Peak expeditions hosted by Mountain Sherpa Trekking and Expeditions! Overnight in Kathmandu
It is more or less a contingency day we keep in hand in the event of a delay in flights from Lukla to Kathmandu, which sometimes happens; so, if this doesn’t happen which is good and fortunate, and then it’s just great.

Our whole guides & staff are 100% Local Sherpa people from the Everest region. As you know “Sherpa’s are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local area. They were immeasurably valuable to early explorers of the Himalayan region, serving as guides at the extreme altitudes of the peaks and passes in the region, particularly for expeditions to climb Mount Everest”
We have extremely professional, reliable, and experienced climbing Sherpa’s working with us. We have four expert Sherpa guides for each group of ten trekkers on the trail in order to make sure all of our teams have the best chance at safe success in their goals.

We work directly with the local communities to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. We seek to help and to be helped to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods.
We continue to help the local community and have helped our Sherpa guides, porters, and staff. As things get worse for tourism workers amid covid-19 pandemic, Mountain Sherpa Trekking director Mr. Pasang Sherpa distributed relief packages to more than 450 Sherpa trekking guides, porters, and climbing guides on 25 May 2020, Similarly, He supported to Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) that has established a food bank for the tourism workers in Nepal during the COVID 19 pandemic.

Our guides will provide you with enough meals on their trek as part of the trip price. A lot of times people are only given the same food each day for every meal, and we don’t do this. You are allowed to pick what you eat for each meal in all the lodges we stay in.
Our guides will make sure that you get good quality lodge accommodation & enough hygienic food during your treks and climbs in the Himalayas which is most important for a successful trip.
Your safety and enjoyable trip are always our priority. Our guide will make sure all of your party is properly acclimatized in the expeditions before going higher. As your know given sufficient time, your body will adapt to the decrease in oxygen at a specific height. This process is known as acclimatization. It normally takes one to two days at any given altitude. This is why having the right itinerary is so essential high altitude trips like Island Peak Climb. Our EBC trek with Island Peak Climbing itinerary includes two nights in Namche Bazaar at 3,500m/ 11,500 feet. Trek to Everest and Kala Patthar at 5,645m/ 18,520 feet earlier to get to Lobuche East Peak hight Camp. We sleep one night at Lobuche High Camp (5,400m/17,720ft) before the summit.

For many of us, the perfect choice may be to go for mineral water. After all, it’s sealed and safe to drink, plus it provides an income for the local traders – right? Regrettably, things are never quite that simple. Mineral water produces a vast number of knock-on problems for mountain societies.
While it does provide an income to local people it also generates an extraordinary, heart-breaking amount of waste and spoiling. Most places simply do not have the resources to do anything with the empty plastic bottles – and they burn them, releasing toxic gases into the air, or leave them in piles just out of sight of travelers, where they take more than 450 years to decompose.
Take, for example, Mera Peak Trek. The recommended amount of water intake on a high-altitude trek like this is 3-4 litters a day. The trek is 13 days long. That’s more than 40 litter and 40 plastic bottles, which won’t decompose until the year 2466 – per person.
For a full MST group of 12 people, just one trip will result in more than 480 mineral water bottles. And the salt in the wound is that plastic doesn’t decompose at high altitudes, so those 480 or more bottles will be up there forever. But what can you do? You have to drink, so how can you get around the problem?
The Alternatives: The great news is that there are really various options that will help you out of the bottled water trap. Here are just four of the best. All you have to do is pick which one is right for you.
Striped- Steripen is the most trusted model on the market. This technique uses exactly the same process as most mineral water undergoes before it is bottled. It’s UV filtering, exactly the same treatment as the majority of bottled water undergoes to be purified, but on the go. The technology has been around for much longer than you think, but it’s only recently been competitively priced enough to be on the market. SteriPen is an American company; other UV filters are also available.
Boiled water– This isn’t always an option if you’re out and about, but boiled water is an excellent option for safe drinking water on the trek. Boiling the water kills any nastiness lurking there. It is the safest and most convenient option. Most lodges serve it, and it is great to ward off the cold. Prices range anywhere between NPR 50 and 120 per liter. This means the cost of drinking water will be around $40-$60 for an 11-day EBC trek.
Purification tablets– Water refining tablets or chemicals like chlorine dioxide are frequently used. They are easy to carry and cheap to buy. However, they are not as effective as UV filters or boiled water and need a few hours to act. Besides these, LifeStraw and iodine-based treatments are also available but have their drawbacks.
Twin Otter aircraft is the usual mode of transport to and from Lukla. This service is fairly dependable, however in case the flights are canceled due to mountain weather conditions, Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions will charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight connections. The helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m, while the Twin Otter can fly if the visibility is 5000m as per the Civil Aviation Rules. The cost of the helicopter is payable directly to our Kathmandu office in the event that this service is utilized. US cash, traveler’s cheque, or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard & American Express only) are accepted. You will be given a receipt upon payment so that you may claim the amount from your travel insurance.
The minimum cost will be US$350 and the maximum US$650 depending on the number of group members. The maximum allowance for checked luggage on these flights is 15kg per person and 5kg for hand luggage. These limits are strictly adhered to so please pack carefully. Please note that approx. 5.5kgs of this weight will be taken up by the sleeping bag (2.5kg), down jacket (1.5kg), kit bag (1kg), and sleeping bag liner (0.5kg) that you are provided.
Our Lobuche East Peak Climbing package is all-inclusive but we advise that you budget between $300 and $400 for additional expenses on your trek including tips. We also suggest you plan on having extra money available in cash or on a credit card in case you require to book a helicopter in the event your flight is canceled.
Unforeseen costs due to flight cancellation, weather conditions, etc. You are responsible for extra hotel nights and meals in Kathmandu or Lukla that are a result of flight delays.
Nepal entry visa ($40 USD).
All the meals are included on the trek however we only include breakfast while you are in the city. you can budget $10-15 per day for lunch and dinner in Kathmandu.
