Lobuche Peak which has two major summits: Lobuche East (6,119m) and Lobuche West (6,145m) is close to the Khumbu Glacier within Everest region. Both of the summits are regarded as the most captivating and difficult peaks in the Everest region. In comparison to Lobuche East, Lobuche West Peak is regarded as one of the hardest and most technically difficult trekking peaks. The Khumbu glacier and Lobuche Peak are close together, and they both share the route to Everest base camp. This peak gives you the stunning views of the Himalayan mountain ranges including Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and others.
Lobuche peak climbing is the best reward to those interested in climbing the himalayas. At Lobuche base camp you will be trained by the local Sherpas about the climb and the use of climbing gears. This peak climbing will train your mind and body for Everest climbing, Manaslu (the killer mountain), K2, Kanchenjunga, Makalu and many others. Remember, the Lobuche Base Camp and Lobuche Village share the same territory. You can understand the culture and lifestyle of the people in the mountains (Sherpa People).
Climbing the Lobuche summit requires a high level of physical fitness. It's because the trek is significantly more difficult and this is a grade 5 peak. The first thing you must know is you should be in good physical condition and free from any kind of disabilities and injuries. The climber must be knowledgeable on how to use the tools and equipment and should have high coordination with the team members and Sherpas. Remember you must maintain constant pace and good confidence to tackle the mountain environment.
If there are any severe altitude issues/altitude sickness, we advise you to go back to a lower altitude and relax. If the situation is more serious, our team will set up a helicopter rescue as far as possible. The Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA), in Khumbu region in particular, will help you with medical care. This is a voluntary non-profitable organization established in 1973 with the goal of lowering fatalities in the Nepal Himalayas.
The trek on this day starts from Thukla/Dugla (a lunch stop/village) to Lobuche base camp. The trek to the base camp is fun traveling as we view numerous mountains. Crevasses, rocks, tricky cliff trails can make the trip difficult. After breakfast in the morning we'll start the trek and after our reach to the base camp we will start our preparation for the next day's climb. (Full Board overnight Tented Camp)
On day 2nd we get up around 2.30/early in the morning. This day is a summit day and the group will put on their climbing gear having their breakfast. The group's overall activities will be decided by the trip leader. The summit of Mt. Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other peaks. After the successful attempt of the summit the team will head towards Pheriche for the complete rest. (Full Board overnight Tented Camp)
Day three is the final day of Lobuche Peak Climbing. On this day the team will return to Pheriche village from the Lobuche Base Camp after the morning base camp breakfast. The team will bid the last farewell to the peak and trip back to Pheriche village where you will have their morning meal. (Overnight Tented Camp)
