Lobuche Peak Climbing in the Khumbu region is not solely an exhausting journey to the summit but also involves brief affairs with the Sherpa villages and their culture. The Louche Peak (6,119m) is located south to the Everest Base Camp and the trail to the top also explores the esteemed Sagarmatha National Park. First summited by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on April 25, 1984, the peak climbing requires modest challenges as well.

The 19-day trip begins upon your arrival in Kathmandu. After an initial trek/climb preparation, you’ll embark on a sightseeing tour of the historical Kathmandu city where you’ll get to witness the majestic and age-old UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Afterward, the trip moves to the east of Nepal. You’ll embark on a short flight to Lukla and begin trekking through the traditional and culturally rich Sherpa villages located inside the Sagarmatha National Park. You’ll cross numerous popular Sherpa settlements en route namely Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pheriche, and Lobuche before arriving at Gorakshep. From here, a short uphill hike will bring you to Everest Base Camp (5,364m). You’ll hike up to Kalapatthar (5,545m) before returning to Lobuche village where you’ll reassess your gears and equipment. Your guide will provide you with a brief instruction on climbing before you move to the High Camp (5,398m). You’ll begin the summit early morning and make a gradual steep ascent through the mighty boulders, slippery rocks, and ice-slabs. Once at the summit, you’ll be rewarded with the majestic panorama of the surrounding Mount Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8516m), Nuptse (7861m), Ama Dablam (6,856m), and Pumo RI (7,165m). After successfully summiting the peak, you’ll make your way back to Pangboche before heading back to Lukla via Namche Bazaar. The trip concedes upon your return to Kathmandu. You can undertake Lobuche Peak climbing during two different seasons, spring (Mar-Jun) and autumn (Sep-Nov). These two seasons guarantee best weather and accessibility.
