About Lobuche Peak Climbing

"Lobuche Peak is a fantastic 6,000 meters above the mountain to kick start your mountaineering journey in the Himalayas.

Known as a famous trekking peak in the Himalayas, Lobuche Peak has become one of the first choices for climbers who are looking for a straightforward climbing venture. It has two faces, Lobuche East (6,119 m) and Lobuche West (6,145 m). During our Lobuche Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp for 19 Days, we conquer the east face. 

Lobuche east peak is regarded as a trekking peak and is smoothly climbable. Whereas, Lobuche west peak is considered an expedition peak because of its technical side. Located above Lobuche village, Lobuche peak climbing is a remarkable once-in-a-lifetime trip. The combination of trekking and climbing in one package allows travelers to have an immersive experience.

Lobuche Peak Climbing in Nepal is all about pushing your limits, getting uncomfortable, unwinding, and relearning about the forgotten simple yet fulfilling lifestyle. The first of the journey takes you amidst the local community through lush rhododendron forests and lovely villages. You'll be trekking following the famous EBC trek route. 

The trail covers all the famous villages like Namche Bazaar (3,440 m), Tengboche (3,860 m), and Pheriche ( m). From Pheriche, you'll ascend to Dughla by walking on a glacier path. Further, the trail ascends along the lateral moraine of Khumbu Glacier and leads you to Lobuche village. The following day, you hike to Kala Patthar via Gorakshep. 

This ascend will help you acclimatize. After the ascent to Kala Patthar (5,545 m), you'll move towards the Lobuche base camp (4,900 m). Then comes the high camp (5,300 m) and you make it too to the summit of Lobuche peak (6,119 m).

                                      Lobuche Peak is a trekking peak. We’ll specifically climb Lobuche East. It is a beginner-friendly less technical peak to climb. The initial part of the itinerary ascends and descends through lush forests and villages. You reach the Lobuche base camp and get ready to ascend to its east summit.

                                      It takes around 6-8 hours to reach the east summit of Lobuche peak. You'll be following the footsteps of your Sherpa guide. After reaching the summit, the team follows the same route down to base camp. 

                                      The cost to climb Lobuche peak may vary as per your itinerary and the company you are climbing with. In general, the package cost starts at USD 2000. 

                                      Yes, you can see the sensational view of Mt. Everest from the Lobuche East summit. Along with that, you also get to see views of Nuptse, Pumori, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Gyachung Kang, Cho Oyu, Makalu, etc.

                                      We carry oxygen cylinders with us during the summit push. Whether you'll need to use it or not depends upon your strength and endurance. Most of the climbers reach the summit of Lobuche peak without using supplemental oxygen.

                                      During Lobuche peak climbing, you'll be accompanied by our experienced Sherpa guides and porters. They will give you basic climbing lessons and make the way for you to reach the top of the mountain and return safely. Our Sherpa guides have climbed Lobuche peak many times before and know the route well, so you'll have a smooth climbing experience.

                                      Even though Lobuche peak climbing is a less technical peak and is recommended to beginner climbers, the overall journey is still challenging. You'll need to prepare your body and mind for peak climbing. The preparation should involve training your body to walk 6 hours a day with a 5 kg backpack weight. Increase your strength and stamina. Work on your endurance. Meet your doctor and get all the climbing gear.

                                      If you have previous trekking experiences and know all the challenges the Himalayas may throw on you during the venture, you are ready to embark on your first peak climbing journey. Lobuche Peak is a good introduction to peak climbing.

                                      No, you do not hike to Everest base camp during Lobuche peak climbing. But our itinerary does take you to Kala Patthar, which will help you in acclimatization.

                                      Useful Information

                                      Altitude Sickness

                                      Altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness is a common illness trekkers/climbers face during high-altitude ventures if their body does not acclimatize. We have made sure you get ample rest days in between the trek. Likewise, you also get enough time to rest at the base camp of Lobuche peak and at the high camp before the final push. 

                                      Weather and Temperature

                                      Autumn (October to November) is the best time of the year to climb Lobuche Peak. Likewise, spring (March to April) is another great time of the year to embark on this adventurous trip in the Himalayas. Both of these seasons have stable weather and a moderate climate perfect for climbing 6,000 meters above the peak. 

                                      The region welcomes colorful flowers and vegetation in spring, which makes the trekking route in the lower elevation very tempting. Likewise, the most vibrant festivals Nepalese celebrates fall under these two seasons, which makes the journey divine. The views are fantastic and the days are mostly bright and sunny. 

                                      You will get a perfect window to push towards the summit. If the weather changes, we do have a contingency day in the itinerary that will keep us on track. 

                                      Physical Fitness

                                      Climbing a peak is not easy, even though it's not technically demanding. You have to live in an isolated area where all you can see is snow and stones. The exposure to high altitude, sun, cold, and wind with high risks of avalanches year-round make the Lobuche peak climbing part very strenuous.  

                                      You have to be physically and mentally fit to push towards the summit of Lobuche peak. Endurance, stamina, and strong core strength are needed. To prepare for the peak climbing, we recommend you go on hiking and trekking. Exercise to build your core strength and stamina. 

                                      Accommodation on the Lobuche peak climbing 

                                      We divide the accommodation into two parts. The first part is lodge accommodation while trekking. Up to Lobuche village, you'll spend nights in one of the best lodges available in the villages along the way. It'll be a comfortable stay. You get a twin-shared room with a common washroom. The facilities are basic.

                                      The second part is camping accommodation during climbing. All the tents are offered by the company, so you do not have to spend a penny to get a tent. We use sleeping tents, dining tents, and washroom tents. The tents are set by the porters. Likewise, we carry all the necessary essentials for our stay at Lobuche base camp and high camp.


                                      Similarly, the meals you will get during the venture depend on the menu of the lodge. There will be quite a variety of dishes on the menu. Nepali, Tibetan, Indian, and Continental cuisine are mostly available. For breakfast, usually toast, eggs, soup, roti Tarkari, oats, sandwiches, porridge, tea, coffee, etc are available. Likewise, for heavy meals, there are Dal Bhat, Tibetan bread, Thenduk, Thukpa, pasta, noodles, momo, etc available. 

                                      During camping, the crew cooks meals for the climbing party. A well-trained cook goes with you to the high camp. We carry the raw ingredients and divide all the meals to last till the summit push. The meals are delicious and nutritious.

                                      Travel Insurance

                                      Travel insurance is mandatory during peak climbing in Nepal. You cannot join Lobuche Peak Climbing without travel insurance, so get one that covers emergency evacuation up to 6,000 meters and medical bills. We need travel insurance if any medical emergency occurs at the time of trekking or climbing. 

                                      As the Khumbu region is a remote area, there are no proper health facilities. Our last resort is to air evacuate the traveler to the nearby hospital in Kathmandu if any medical emergencies arise. 

                                      Group/Private Joining

                                      You can join Lobuche Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek with your friends in a group. Or do solo climbing with our professional Sherpa guides. Either, you'll have the best climbing experience with our friendly team. To join the Lobuche Peak Climbing with Kala Patthar Trek, you have to send us your basic information, travel insurance documents, advance payment, and previous trekking/climbing information. Once evaluated by our travel consultant we begin the booking process and provide you with a preparation list. 

                                      Tipping to crew members

                                      Our Lobuche Peak Climbing with Kala Patthar trek package cost does not cover tips. So, we request you to tip our guides and porters as per your wish at the end of the trip. Tipping in the group is recommended. Each member can tip USD 100 to the trek guide, USD 5 to the tour guide, and USD 2 to the driver. 

                                      Tipping is well-practiced in the travel industry in Nepal. If you are new to it, then do not feel shy. It is the best way to show your appreciation for the hard work of the on-field team members. 

                                      Personal expenses 

                                      There are things like international flights, extra meals, shopping, travel insurance, tips, etc not covered in the package cost. So, make a separate budget for these expenses. You can check the cost include and cost exclude section on our package page.
