Overview

Our Lobuche East Peak Climbing package will take your breath away every single day while you are on the trail. From the moment that you leave Kathmandu, the adventure begins. One thing that makes the Lobuche Peak Climbing so special is that not only ascend Lobuche Peak (6119 meters/20,075 feet), but you also spend time at Everest Base Camp and climb Kala Patthar.

Although Lobuche East Peak Climbing is considered to be a bit more difficult than Island Peak Climbing and Mera Peak Climbing, it is still accessible by adventurers of all skill levels. What better place to begin your climbing career than in the heart of the famous Everest region. 

At the summit, your jaw will drop to the ground at the sea of Himalayan peaks that lie ahead, behind, and all around you. From 6,119 meters, you can see Mount Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Ama Dablam (6812m), Nuptse (7861m), Pumori (7161m) and a whole number of others.  Before that, though, we’ve got to visit other treasures of the Everest region.

Before the climb, we land in Lukla (the most dangerous airport in the world!) after a quick, scenic flight from Kathmandu. From there, we move slowly to Namche Bazaar, the bustling trade hub of the region, and a popular hangout spot for trekkers to swap stories after their treks. Continue ascending on the normal Everest Base Camp Trek until we reach the base camp (5364m). The feeling you get when you arrive is beyond compare. There is so much history to this place. You can see the city of tents, with mountaineers preparing for their Everest summit. Beyond that is the infamous Khumbu Icefall.

Kala Patthar (5643m) is our next major destination.  Visit Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar are necessary to acclimatizing as efficiently as possible. Kala Patthar gives stupendous views of Mount Everest and countless other colossal peaks. Now, we’re ready to prepare for our final ascent.

High Camp, at 5200 meters, lies near a ridgeline with an awesome perspective of Khumbu Glacier. We spend that day preparing for the climb and making sure we are familiar with the gear and the gear is familiar with us. If the timing is right and the weather is suitable, we wake up early the next morning for the summit. As mentioned before, your mind will be blown when you see Mount Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and countless others, in all their glory. Being at the top of Lobuche Peak is an absolute treat – a memory of a lifetime. We’d love to experience this with you!

From here, we make a swift ascent back to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu for a celebration. Just add a couple of day to your Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary to complete this package. Don’t catch yourself leaving the Everest region without this adrenaline-pumping Lobuche East Peak Climb!

Our Lobuche Peak East Climbing itinerary has been designed by veteran climbers and is managed with utmost consideration to safety. We ensure that this package adheres to protecting your comfort and well-being.  We do this by ascending slowly, and not spending too long at too high of altitudes. 

In addition, Lobuche East Peak Climbing can be experienced by adventurers of all levels. Do not let the idea of climbing a peak scare you away. It is technically difficult, but you will be adequately trained and guided before and during the summit. 

Climbing is most possible during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November).  During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. Lobuche Peak Climbing requires fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the climb with complete management.
