It introduces you to some of the most popular Everest-area sports. This astonishing climbing expedition is suitable for climbers of all skill levels, including novices and seasoned climbers.

The east peak of Lobuche is one of Nepal’s most popular trekking destinations. It is situated in the Everest Khumbu Himalayan range at the height of 6,119 meters above sea level. This summit is picturesque and offers a variety of climbing routes. On April 25, 1984, Sherpa Ang Gyalzen and Laurence Nielson achieved the first climb of Lobuche East.

The trek traverses through the adventurous Everest Base Camp trail. Exploring the wilderness with the region’s lush flora and animals, as well as stunning Sherpas communities along the way, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The local people’s distinct customs, traditions, and lives, as well as their delectable cuisine, will enchant you.                     

To get to Lobuche Base Camp, the route passes through Everest Base Camp. In addition, the trail provides views of Everest, Nuptse, Pumori, Khumbutse, and Lhotse, as well as other Himalayan giants.

A brief 30 minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla begins the Lobuche peak climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek. Trekkers will pass through green hilly landscapes, mountainous terrains, and the foothills of snow-capped mountains on their way to the summit. The trail takes you through Namche Bazaar, leading towards Tengboche. 

You begin your quest by hiking through numerous communities for a few days before arriving at Everest Base Camp. The expedition then continues to the summit of Lobuche East Peak. The tour comes to a conclusion after leaving the Everest region and returning to Kathmandu following a successful attempt.
