Nepal is a trekker’s heaven, with hundreds of thousands of high mountains. It has numerous beautiful hiking snow peaks that draw mountaineers in. Lobuche East peak climbing, on the other hand, is something else, with its unbelievable appeal and natural splendor.

It adds to the splendor of the Khumbu, which keen mountaineers climb across. It’s breathtaking, with dazzling glaciers, different landscapes, and snow peaks like Ama Dablam and Pokalde around it.

Lobuche East Peak is a natural wonder located in northeast Nepal, near to the Khumbu Glacier. It’s as magnificent as it gets, with majestic scenery, wonderful villages, and lovely valleys.

While the village lies at 4,930 meters altitude, the peak mounts all the way up, sitting at 20,075 ft high. It climbs the icy terrain, walks a deep notch ridge, and ascends steep glaciers to arrive at the summit.

The pastoral pathways that follow Lobuche Peak are quite spectacular. Trekkers may explore magnificent communities, mountain ridges, and glaciers. Visitors will be able to see the glittering snow peaks of Thamserku, Cholatse, and Kantega from the acme.

Peak Louche East After a flight to Lukla, the climbing begins. The route ends in Phakding after a straight uphill trek with a few ins and outs. Following the craggy landscape and passing suspension bridges, we’ll arrive at Namche, 30 kilometers from the Lobuche settlement.

Passing through the village of Tengboche across the canyon and leaving behind Dingboche, we’ll get to Lobuche. From there, the trail heads to Everest Base Camp that takes about 8 hours of trekking. A quick stop at  and a retreat to the Lobuche village before we start climbing the snow peak.

Following the instructions of Sherpas, we’ll initially climb the base camp of Lobuche. Its long trails are rugged and filled with boulders, taking us somewhere between 5-6 hours. On the next day, we’ll ascend the steep glacier and snowy ridge to high camp and finally make it to the summit.

From atop the mountain, we’ll get the magnificent view of glistening snow peaks and glaciers. We’ll also catch the sight of beautiful glaciers along with the spectacles of mountains like Pokalde and Cholatse.


Day 1
Arrival at Kathmandu

As planned, our representatives will meet you today at the airport. They will be waiting for you at the entrance. They will transport you to your hotel and assist in giving you the keys to your room after a cordial greeting and introduction.
You’ll be on your own after that until we get together to briefly go over the route. You can take a nap or take a stroll through Thamel’s streets till then. But make sure you get back to the hotel on schedule.

Day 2
Sightseeing Kathmandu

We will rest and explore Kathmandu City on the second day of our Lobuche East Peak Climbing vacation in Nepal. We’ll visit the Pashupatinath Temple and pray there first thing in the morning. From there, we’ll take a car 2.1 kilometers (km) to Boudhanath Stupa.
We’ll get at the pilgrimage, where you can see the white-washed monastery, in about 7 minutes. There are prayer wheels and flags all throughout the holy sanctuary. The stupa’s musical instruments and chanting are also audible.
Shortly after the monastery tour, we’ll head to Kathmandu Durbar Square, which helps you learn about the history of Nepal. While exploring durbar square, you can see the courtyard, wooden temples, stone statues, and artefacts. After the sighting is over, we’ll get back to the hotel where you can have our dinner and take a rest.

We’ll take off for Tribhuvan Airport at the crack of dawn to board a flight to Lukla. We’ll readily see rolling hills and lush meadows along the route given the clear sky after morning. Before landing in Lukla, a gateway to Mount Everest, the flight will take place for around 30 minutes.

We’ll make a quick stop in the town to have breakfast. From there, we will begin the walk to Phakding by ascending the hillside route that runs along the Dudh Koshi River’s left bank. We’ll reach Phakding after a couple incline and decline strolls. At the settlement, spend the night in a lodge.

On the way to the town, we’ll pass several villages, including Manjo. After entering the Sagarmatha National Park, the trek is arduous, especially with the decreasing atmospheric pressure.

Most of the trekkers get altitude sickness at this section; therefore, you’ll have to be cautious while climbing the trail. Some two hours walk of the steep hill with several highs and lows before getting to the famous Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar.

After reaching Namche, we’ll get an astonishing view of steep-sided valleys and lush green farms. The colorful local shops and villages add to the beauty of this town. To get some rest, we’ll stay in a local tea house tonight.

Day 5
Acclimatization at Namche Bazaar

It’s wonderful to spend some time off and tour the town after the drawn-out and tiring journey to Namche. We will thus take a short stroll to the Everest View Hotel rather than trudging for kilometers to reach Dingboche. This tour will both aid in our acclimatization and provide us with a breathtaking vista.

The journey takes over two hours and involves climbing a steep hill and paving a path across uneven terrain. We’ll enjoy a 360-degree panorama of gleaming snow-capped mountains, broad valleys, and lush hills soon after reaching the peak at 3,880 meters.
We’ll take our time here and eat breakfast before making our way back to the town. Some hikers may choose to meander around Khumjung village and/or the Sherpa museum to acclimate.

Day 6
Trek to Tengboche

The highest point is 3,867 meters.

9.2 kilometers of trekking

Trek time: 6-7 hours

After leaving the community, we’ll continue our hike along a rough, upward-inclining route. Our route softly lowers the hill and travels through the ridge after passing through the ancient Mani wall. We travel a zigzagged trail with several ups and downs starting at Phunki Tenga. The last two hours will be a little hectic after a long uphill hike.

Tengboche, perched at a height of 12,677 feet, gives an amazing view of Ama Dablam as a backdrop. From the hilltop over Imja Khola, you can also take pictures of the stunning green hills and constricting gorges. We’ll visit the monastery in the afternoon and perhaps pay our respects while staying the night at a tea house.

Day 7
Trek to Dingboche

Maximum Altitude: 4,260 meters

Trek Distance: 10.8 km

Day 9
Trek to Everest Base Camp, Return to Gorak Shep

Maximum Altitude: 5,364 meters

Trek Distance: 8 km

Trek Duration: 7-8 hrs

The trip to Gorak Shep appears to be short, with only a 2.8-mile track. However, due to the high altitude and the gravel trail, the climb may take 3-4 hours. We’ll arrive at Gorak Shep after a tough struggle against the loose rocks and rugged slopes.

After lunch, we resume our ascent of the steep route that runs beside stony dunes and glacial moraine. This section of the journey is a little tough, with rising height and debris, so we’ll have to be cautious. We’ll see Mt. Everest, as well as the surrounding Cho Oyu and Nuptse, when we get at the base of the Khumbu Icefall.

The expedition also offers a view of Khumbu Glacier before leaving base camp. On the way down, the trek gets easy and finishes in a bit of time. We’ll stay the night in a tea house at Gorak Shep.

Day 10
Trek to Kala Patthar, Return to Lobuche

Maximum Altitude: 5,545 meters

Trek Distance: 6 km

Trek Duration: 6-7 hrs

Early the next day, we’ll ascend Kala Patthar from Gorak Shep. Since the trail is steep here and filled with rocks, it’ll take us between 2-3 hours to get up at the ridge. From the hilltop, we catch a glimpse of towering mountains, glacial lakes, and landscapes.

Just after the sightseeing is over, we’ll descend the trail to Gorak Shep. We’ll grab some lunch at the village and head back to Lobuche. Although walking the path is easy with continuous descent, the trek still requires 2-3 hours. Overnight stay at a tea house.

Our Sherpa staff will set up the tent where we will spend the night at base camp.

Day 12
Trek to High Camp

Maximum Altitude: 5,400 meters

Trek Duration: 3-4 hrs

After having breakfast and doing some leg stretching, we’ll leave for the trail that slopes upward. Following a narrow lane and a snow-covered ridge, our path paves the way to the High Camp.

Since the trail to high camp is slippery and covered in snow, we’ll wear crampons. Also, to climb the icy cliff, we’ll use an ice axe. Following the instruction of a trekking guide, we’ll reach the campsite at 5,400 meters.

As the trek to high camp is demanding and exhausting, we’ll take a rest and re-energize ourselves for the big day. Before heading up to the summit, medical specialists will check our health conditions for safety. We’ll also receive some training from the trek guide.

Day 13
Lobuche Peak Expedition, Return to Base Camp

Maximum Altitude: 6,119 meters

Trek Duration: 8-9 hrs

We’ll start climbing the mountain in pitch dark so that the trek is done by noon. Apart from that, there’s high wind in the morning, making it difficult to ascend the trail. There are many technical difficulties on the way to the peak; therefore, you’ll have to be more careful.
We’ll ascend the glacier using an ice axe and a fixed rope. We’ll follow the trek guide’s directions and stick together with the crew the entire time. They’ll lead the way via the icy ridge and sharp dips.
The hike from Lobuche Base Camp to the top takes around 4 hours. However, once at the summit, the peak provides amazing views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Thamserku, and Kantega.
We’ll retrace our ways back to camp after a quick stop at the peak. With the route going downward, the trekking will be simpler this time. We’ll spend the night in a tent at the campsite.

We’ll then travel through an alpine woodland of rhododendron and juniper trees. After around 5-6 hours of hiking, we’ll arrive at the remote village of Pangboche. On the route, we may observe tributes to climbers who died on the peak. We’ll stay at a tea house in Pangboche.

Day 16
Trek to Lukla

Maximum Altitude: 2,860 meters
