Overview:

Lobuche Peak climbing is one of the most famous trekking peak climbing activities. Climbing of Lobuche is combined along with the Everest Base Camp Trek. Just like Island Peak Climbing, this climbing activity also has the itinerary of EBC trek. It is to prepare fully for your ascent of mountain. Remember that Lobuche peak is technically difficult peak than Island Peak climbing. Follow our Island peak Climbing package also. 

The Lobuche Peak has two pinnacles. West is at height of 6145 m and East is at 6119 m. Trekking peak is the East Lobuche. We will follow the similar itinerary of Everest Base Camp Trek on this climbing as well until we head to Lobuche Base Camp.

Trip begins from Kathmandu with the scenic mountain flight to Lukla. We will trek past various villages and towns like Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorakshep. After the visit of Everest Base Camp, we will head towards Lobuche Base Camp. We will prepare ourselves with some light rope and gears training. Sherpa climbing guide will brief climbers on this day. It is to ensure the successful ascent of the mountain. 

There are various routes to climb Lobuche Peak (6119m). The most famous route to climb is the souther ridge line. It is normal and easier than other route. There are many summits on this mountain as well. You can see these summits from the high camp. The true Lobuche summit requires you to climb steep on ice slope. Everest Buddha Treks team will set up the camp for you at the south western side on the trail of Chola Pass Trek. It is to make you feel comfortable and acclimatize fully before climbing. 

Once you are at the summit the scenery of mountains enthrall you. The scenery of mountains like Everest, pumori, Cholatse, Tabuche, Amadablam etc. looks outstanding.
