Lobuche East Peak Expedition

Trip Description:

The Lobuche or Lobuje Mountain consists of two different summits, viz. East and West with heights of 6,119 m and 6,145 m respectively. A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The East Peak is recognized as a trekking peak, whereas the West is known as an Expedition Peak.

Mt. Lobuche climb is certainly a bit more challenging than another popular climb to Island Peak. However, the magnificently panoramic views from the Lobuche summit prove the attempt worth undertaking. Not only the gorgeous Mt. Everest, you will also be able to see many mountains of the Rongbuk side of the Tibet, even those which are not visible from Island Peak. Besides, the mountains we also visit villages and monasteries to marvel at how human resolve can surpass even the harshest of environment. At first we trek to Everest Base Camp which not only gives you a chance to spend some time of your life among the high mountains, but also prepares our bodies to acclimatize, so that our bodies will easily adapt to the atmosphere while climbing Lobuche. The bliss you will experience after scaling the Lobuche Peak will certainly remain with you forever.  And don't forget the speed shoot - taking photos by, among others, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Lobuche and with your friends!

The journey begins with a mountain flight to the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla of the National Geographic fame. The trek starts from Lukla up through the Sagarmatha National Park all the way through the colorful landscapes. As we take steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, the capital of Sherpas, we are greeted by spectacular mountain vistas.  We continue to follow the trail to a famous vantage point, Kala Patthar, where a marvelous 360-degree panorama awaits. Mt. Kala Patthar, as the name suggests, is a "black rock" among the eternal whiteness around in the embrace Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and many more. From Everest Base Camp, we trek down to Lobuche and head toward the Lobuche Base Camp. After summiting the Lobuche East we retrace our steps to Lukla again for a return flight to Kathmandu.
