Lobuche East and Island Peak climbing is certainly one of the most intensive 6,000 m peak tours which Nepal has to offer.
The adventure begins with an impressive panoramic flight to Lukla. From there the trail leads through river valleys and wooded mountains, up to the glacier-covered heights of the ice giants. Your companions are the imposing peaks of Ama Dablam (6,860 m), Thamserku (6,623 m), Cholatse (6,440 m), Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,485 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Nuptse (7,861 m) and of course the highest of them all, Mount Everest (8,848 m).
After the hike to Gokyo Ri (5,357 m) you tackle the summit of Lobuche East (6.119 m). The mountain panorama from Lobuche East is breathtaking and ranks among the finest in Nepal. From the summit you can admire four of the 8,000 m peaks: Cho Oyu, Mt. Everest, Lothse and Makalu, as well as numerous other mountain giants including Ama Dablam (the Matterhorn of the Himalayas).
For the grand finale you climb Island Peak (6.189 m) and let yourself be enchanted by the massive ice formations. You then make your way back to Lukla, happy and full of many beautiful impressions.
This breathtaking tour is entirely suitable for novice mountaineers, but it requires sound mountain hiking and climbing experience, as well as surefootedness and freedom from vertigo.
