Lobuche Peak Climbing
Although a challenging climb, Lobuche Peak Climbing is favored as a favorite climbing venture by most climbers. Beginning the trip with endearing treks through Sherpa villages and Sagarmatha National Park, the journey culminates at the summit of the Lobuche Peak (6119m). The summit has a panoramic view of Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,414 m), Ama Dablam (6,856 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Cholatse (6,335 m), and Pumo Ri (7,165 m). The trek prior to the climb also takes you along the classic Everest Base Camp Trek revealing a number of cultural attractions as well.
This 20-day climbing journey begins at Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, you will visit some UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and prepare for the trek. You will take a flight to Tenzing-Hilary Airstrip in Lukla and begin trekking. The trek passes through popular Sherpa villages namely Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep en route to Everest Base Camp.

Afterward, you’ll descend back to Lobuche village and take a detour east of the village to arrive at Lobuche High Camp (5,400m) located at the southwest ridge of the peak.
