Lobuche Peak Climbing

Lobuche Peak is a beautiful trekking peak offering 360 degree views of the high Himalaya. 

From the stunning base camp site to the snowy summit ridge, Lobuche will keep you both physically challenged and visually delighted. The Summit offers spectacular views of the most popular mountains, such as Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, Pumori, Cho Oyu, Cholatse, Tabuche, Lhotse and, of course Everest. The Lobuche climb is perfect for adventure travelers looking to gain climbing experience in the Himalayas. 

Our Lobuche climbing trip begins from Lukla after a short flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla we follow either the Everest Base Camp trek route or the Gokyo valley and Cho-la pass route, the latter providing a better opportunity for acclimatization than the former. Gokyo valley is arguably the most beautiful valley in the Khumbu region, and the Gokyo peak provides panoramic views of the greatest mountain scenery in the world - including four 8000m giants and a myriad of other peaks of the Khumbu Himal.

We always spend a day or two at base camp prior to the ascent. This time is spent resting and being trained in the use of climbing equipment.

The usual route for climbing Lobuche peak is along the southern ridge. The climb takes two days, with high camp established at about 5200m.

After we have summited and descended, we trek back to Lukla along the Everest Base Camp route, passing through the renowned remote Tengboche Monastery, and the town of Namche Bazaar.
