At 6,119 m Lobuche East Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal and – as a training summit – is often climbed in preparation for the ascent of Everest. From the summit you have one of the finest mountain panoramas which the Nepal Himalayas have to offer, covering Mt. Everest (8,848 m), Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Lothse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,485 m) and numerous other mountain giants, including Ama Dablam (the Matterhorn of the Himalayas).
After an impressive flight the trek starts at the airport in Lukla (2,800 m). First we go to Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Sherpas, and from there towards the stunning lakes of Gokyo. On Gokyo Ri (5,357 m) you receive a foretaste of the mountain panoramas of the Khumbu region. After crossing Cho La (5,431 m) you continue – well acclimatised – to the high camp of Lobuche East. After the successful ascent of Lobuche East you make your way back to Lukla, but not before trekking to Everest Base Camp.
Lobuche East contains a 45-degree ice and snow slope, and the difficulty level can therefore be compared with Island Peak.
Our Lobuche East Peak tour is carefully planned. We offer extra breaks and acclimatization days so that you will stay fit and healthy. However, for this tour you should have very good mountain hiking experience, good climbing experience, surefootedness, and a head for heights.
