Trip Overview

Residing as one of the Khumbu Glacier giants in Lobuche’s settlement, the peak has an elevation of 6119 m in the east and 6145 m. in the west. (Approximately). Belonging to the Everest massif, the Lobuche peak is one of Nepal’s most stunning climbing peaks. On this journey, we travel to the east side of the mountain. Sitting comfortably beside the route next to the Everest Base Camp (EBC), the Lobuche east raises the curiosity of many travelers. The best time to explore this famous climbing peak is September-November and March-May. The favorable months provide fantastic views of the monasteries and the scenic view of the Everest region. The delights of the good seasons are that it bestows us with the lush green hills in the lower part of the mountains and crystal clear Himalayas.

It is one of the more demanding journeys in the area. It is exciting and introduces you to high-altitude mountaineering in the Everest region. We travel through the regular Everest route and leave Lukla as we summit to the Lobuche peak via the Khumbu valley. The Himalayan summit is a challenging but doable expedition for people in good health. It is an attainable peak with two great journeys; The EBC trek and Lobuche peak.

Lobuche Peak Climbing Difficulty

The Lobuche Peak Climbing is not an easy one. However, it is still a doable peak. It is quite a challenging peak and requires the participants to hike up to the Everest Base Camp and climb the mountain. However, the climbers need basic training with every ascends and descend, and prior knowledge of ropes, crampons, and ice axes are preferred. As you constantly travel at a higher altitude, we suggest you have good resistance to keep up with the harsh climate and weather. The trails are rugged, steep, and rocky; hence, proper knowledge of using the technical gears will come in handy in this challenging trek.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
