Trip Overview

The Lobuche East Trekking Peak is a thrilling adventure in Nepal that attracts climbers from around the world. Standing at 6,119 meters, Lobuche East Treking Peak offers a challenging ascent and multiple routes, primarily drawing adventurers to its southern ridge. This trek combines the demanding nature of high-altitude climbing with the breathtaking vistas of the Himalayas, making it an unforgettable experience for seasoned climbers and enthusiasts alike.

Compared to Island Peak, Lobuche presents a greater level of difficulty, making it an appealing choice for those seeking a more demanding mountain experience. The exhilarating 20-day Lobuche Peak and Everest Base Camp trek begins with a short flight to Lukla. The journey unfolds along the banks of the Dhudhkosi River, featuring a steep climb to Namche, highlighted by crossing the region’s highest suspension bridge over the Dudh Kosi.

Before reaching Namche, a visit to the Top Dada provides the first glimpse of the Everest region, acting as a prelude to the breathtaking views ahead. Exploring Namche includes visits to the Sherpa museum and the Syanboche airstrip, recognized as the world’s highest airport. Enjoying a cup of coffee while marveling at the wild vista of the Khumbu Himalaya, with Mount Everest as its centerpiece, becomes a memorable highlight of the trek.

Continuing the journey involves visiting the Tengboche Monastery, traversing Sherpa villages and valleys, and crossing the memorial pass, which serves as a therapeutic balm for the challenges faced along the way.

To acclimatize to the high altitude, a visit to Kalapathar (5,555m) and Everest Base Camp (5,360m) precedes the Lobuche base camp. The first night in Lobuche is spent at a tented camp elevated at 4,950m above sea level. The panoramic views of Himalayan peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Cholatse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kantega, and Mt. Baruntse, create a visual symphony, making the Lobuche East Peak summit a truly gratifying experience.

The journey to Lobuche East Trek Peak seamlessly blends the challenges of high-altitude trekking with the reward of witnessing some of the world’s most majestic mountain vistas, making it an unforgettable adventure for seasoned climbers and enthusiasts alike.

Itinerary Informations

Lukla Flights:

All we know is that the Lukla flight is sensitive in the case of weather. Instantly it may be delayed and canceled as well. A tiny Himalayan airport has difficulty facing heavy traffic which is why sometimes the flight may be delayed. So, we suggest, if you are trekking in Everest, please make sure at least you have two days additional in the program.

In the case of a weather cancellation, the best alternative to get Lukla is to charter a helicopter because the copter can fly in a lower visibility of 1,500 meters. However, Twin Otter and Dornier aircraft need minimum visibility of 5,000 meters.
What about the Helicopter cost? Is it getting instant or need to be in the queue?
A helicopter charges US $ 2500 per flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. And the US $ 500 per person on a sharing basis. Except for the emergency, during the high season and extreme weather of Lukla, you may not get a helicopter instantly or need to be in the queue. Also, if you have requested the Helicopter for less than 24 hours, you may need to wait because of the limited number of helicopters, and they’re using various activities in the mountains.
