Everest Base Camp with Lobuche Peak Climbing

Everest Base Camp with Lobuche Peak Climbing

Overview

Lobuche is a small settlement near the Mount Everest of khumbu region. It has two main peaks each above 6000m respectively. One of the peaks is recognized as trekking where as the other is identified as expedition. Lobuche east peak was first scaled by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalijen on 25th April 1984. Lobuche East Climb is a bit more challenging than Island Peak Climb. But it serves you with the best rewards. It offers you with new and exciting routes. From the summit of the peak we will get amazing views of mighty mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori. Lobuche Peak Climbing is technically difficult than Island Peak Climbing. One must have special experience and capacity to tolerate the harsh climate and weather along with thinness in air. Some special skill to climb on a steep vertical and snowy trial will be an asset to the journey. A traveler having prior experience is a must for the successful completion of the trek. Though the trek is difficult it will reward you with the most splendid views of mountains including Mt.Pumori, Mt. Everest and many more.
