Best Time For the Lobuche Peak Climbing
As exciting as the Lobuche Peak Climb sounds, you might be confused about when to embark on this incredible journey. To clear that confusion, we are here with the best times for the climb.
The best times for the Climb are Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November). With the clear blue skies and lush green landscapes, the weather during this time is favorable, making the climb more worthwhile. You can walk along the Rhododendron forest during spring, whereas the months of Autumn will give you a different vibe with its cool breeziness.
The weather will be far less predictable and harsher during the winter and monsoon. Hence, we do not recommend climbing during these times. The slippery trails and heavy snowfall could even raise safety concerns.
