Trip Overview

What is Nepal popular for? The most probable answer will be tall mountains, peaks, and hills, which is the right answer. Yes, Nepal is known for the land of Mount Everest and seven other eight-thousanders. Not only that, but there are also numerous other peaks that are high enough to touch skies. In very simple words “Nepal is a blessed country with the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains”. Having that said, this is so fair to say “ The ultimate destination for every mountain adventurer in the world is Nepal”.


From highest Mt Everest(8,848m) to smallest Gokyo Ri(5,357m), Nepal’s list of mountains is long which includes many technical peaks, easy trekking peaks, and high hiking peaks. Thousands of beginners, semi-professionals, and professional climbers come to Nepal every 12 months to climb one more mountain. The beginners reach here to learn basic mountaineering skills by climbing the trekking peaks. There are several trekking peaks and amongst that the Lobuche Peak is one of the most popular. And, this article will rotate around and around Lobuche Peak Climbing. Let’s jump in.


Lobuche Peak is a well-known trekking peak of Nepal located in the Khumbu region. Consisting of two faces; Lobuche East(6,119m) and Lobuche West(6,145m), the Lobuche peak lies just above the Lobuche village and Khumbu Glacier. Peaks like Mount Everest and Lhotse lie just 13.5 Km east from the Lobuche Peak. Of two faces, the Lobuche East is an easily climbable peak and thus regarded as the trekking peak. On the other side, Lobuche West is less frequently climbable and more technical and hence listed as the expedition peak. So, Lobuche East(6,119m) is the summit point of Lobuche Peak Climbing, not the Lobuche West.


Lobuche East Peak climbing is the best plan for beginners to tick the very first peak climb of their life. This not too difficult trekking peak offers the beautiful but learnable climbing experience. Climbers summiting Lobuche East can finally move up towards another mountain. Reaching the Lobuche top is not an end of the expedition but the start of many more climbs.


Furthermore, Lobuche Peak Climbing arranges the awestruck mountain views along the way and from the top. Being very near to the Mahalangur section, this expedition gets you the vision of Everest along with Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and several others.


Lobuche Peak Climbing Route


The journey starts with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu and then trek through villages like Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, and finally Lobuche. From Lobuche, the routes get separated where the EBC route heads towards Gorakshep, and Lobuche Peak’s path moves to Lobuche Base Camp. Everest Base Camp is just 8.5km southwest from the Lobuche village, that is why Everest Base Camp Trek is added too often in most of the Lobuche Peak itineraries.


Thereafter, Lobuche Peak climbing trail approaches the Lobuche Base Camp which resides at an altitude of 4,950m. After the Base Camp, the route heads upward just over the Khumbu Glacier to reach Lobuche High Camp(5,400m). The nights after Lobuche village have to be spent in the tented camps.


Lobuche Peak summit is only one hard stretch away from the high camp. The path turns steeper and steeper after the high camp where the summit track finds its way through a sharp snow ridge. Then, the route turns towards the north-west of the peak where some snow bumps and notches lie. After that is the final summit climb over a steep part towards the summit point.


How difficult is Lobuche Peak Climbing?


Lobuche Peak is one of those trekking peaks of Nepal which is slightly more difficult than other similar peaks. This expedition involves steep and high altitude trekking and hard climb. Before you start Lobuche Peak climbing, you have to trek all the way from Lukla to Lobuche Base Camp. For that part of trekking, you will require an average of 5 to 6 hours of trekking per day. The hiking trails are not plain but steep and tiring. Beginners who have not trekked before can face some problems while trekking days. The trek is around the higher parts of the Khumbu region so a foreigner can struggle with altitude sickness.

Once you cross Lobuche village, the trail starts to get rough, steady, and rocky. Some nights until return to the village are meant to be spent in the camp tent and have to eat food cooked by the helper there. This can be a little difficult situation for those who have not climbed a mountain before. The rough trails get steeper and steeper as you head towards Lobuche’s Base Camp. Sometimes while ascending, you need to use mountaineering gears like rope, ice axe to move ahead. Then comes the summit day on which you have to climb the Lobuche East and head back to the base camp. A total of around 8 to 10 hours will be required to do so on the summit day.

Summit climb is also not easy as said. There is a steep and snowy section just a few climbs below the summit which is sloped in around 45°. This particular part is as lengthy as 50m and it can be more difficult than other sections. Beginners face more problems at this part of Lobuche Peak climbing and they have to give a real test of their skills. Other than these facts written above, the Lobuche Peak is a doable trekking peak. But, embarkers have to have prior mountaineering training, practice, and knowledge.


After crossing the bridge, adorned with prayer flags, over the Dudh Koshi River the trail then traverses the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests. The path eventually reaches Sansa which is the major trail junction in the region. We can then appreciate the ravening splendor of Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Nuptse with every footstep. After a break for lunch, the trail hugs the mountainside before reaching Namche Bazaar and Kyangjuma, winding our way around several bends. We should keep a watchful eye for wild-life, such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants and other animals while passing through the forest. Once we pass a Chorten (Buddhist shrine), we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar. From here we can look back and absorb the beauty of Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche. After reaching our lodge we can take a nice hot shower and enjoy a relaxing night’s rest at Namche Bazaar.


Best Time for Lobuche Peak Climbing


Everything has its own time and time is the most important part of life. The same is here in Lobuche Peak Climbing, this peak expedition has its own best times. You cannot get ready for the climb anytime you like. There are two favorable times in a year for climbing the Lobuche East; March to May(Spring) and September to November(Autumn). These suggested seasons provide the perfect conditions to do a trek and climb. Both of the seasons are completely rain-free and possess stable weather and warm temperatures. During Autumn and Spring, there are lower chances of the climb postponing.


You get to enjoy the whole of the expedition thoroughly if it is done in either Spring or Autumn. Skies are mostly clear and on the bright days, you can watch every step cautiously. There is one another perk; you will enjoy the broad panorama of Everest region mountains. You can encapture several high peaks in one glance as there will be no clouds hindering the view. Lobuche Peak climb is mostly a hassle-free experience if it is done in the Autumn and Spring.

Day 05 Acclimatization Day at Namche Bazaar: (3,440m )

This is the scheduled ‘acclimatization’ day for this trek. Health experts always recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day and suggest we remain active and avoid being idle. We can choose to spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or relaxing and exploring Namche Bazaar itself. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides will take you to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region. We also take an interesting side trip up to Khumjung. We climb up to the famous airstrip at Syangboche. Just above the airstrip is the Everest View Hotel, a Japanese scheme to build a deluxe hotel with great views of the highest mountains on Earth. The Khumjung valley is surrounded by the snowy peaks of Kongde and Thamserku and the sacred peak Khumbila, hosts a well-known monastery that houses a yeti scalp. We also visit Hillary School which is at the same site. After having lunch and spending some time in Khumjung, we walk back down to Namche Bazaar.

Day 06 Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3,870m) Duration: 5-6 hours.

After breakfast in Namche, we commence our trek to Tengboche with dazzling views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and a close-up view of Thamserku. Our trek to Tengboche has a few ups and downs with spectacular views of Himalaya. On the trek, we may be lucky to spot some native wildlife, such as pheasant, musk deer, and maybe a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail gradually descends to Kayangjuma before reaching Sansa, which is a major junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. The track then follows through pine forests and passes prayer flags festooned on the bridge over the Dudh Koshi River. We then reach Phunki Thenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post in the midst of alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Thenga we then have a little tough steep climb through pine forests before arriving at Tengboche. Tengboche where there are some glorious in-your-face of Ama-Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest. Tengboche boasts of having the biggest Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region. A visit to the monastery at around 3 p.m to see a ceremony performed by the monks.

Day 07 Trek from Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360 m) Duration 5-6 hours

A clear morning is the best time to see the exquisite monastery in Tengboche. This is a perfect time to unleash the camera! We then continue our trek taking the upper trail taking advantage of the views to witness the view of this ancient monastery before passing through several Chortens and Mani walls and several small villages. While enjoying our lunch break we can take in the fantastic close-up views of Ama-Dablam. The afternoon takes us north to Pheriche, or alternatively, we can take the trail heading east beneath the towering north face of Ama Dablam. From this point, the trek is fairly easy-going before we enter the Imja Valley. The valley gradually opens up as we approach the confluence of the Lobuche River. We then descend into the river and begin the last and steepest climb of the day up to Dingboche On arrival in Dingboche, we see a spectacular array of fields enclosed by stone walls to protect the barley, buckwheat, and potatoes from the cold winds and grazing animals.

Day 08 Acclimatization day at Dingboche and hike to Chukkung Valley (4730m) Duration: 4-5 hours

It is sensible to spend another day acclimatizing before heading to higher altitudes. One way of doing this is to hike up to Chukkung Valley (4730m) and on to Island Peak (Imja Tes). Above Dingboche is Nagkartshang Gompa (a strenuous trek takes around 2 to 3 hours), or alternatively head to Pheriche for an afternoon lecture on altitude sickness. The trail to Chhukung leaves Dingboche heading to Bibr (4570m) and is surrounded by fabulous mountain Peaks: Taboche, Nuptse, Lhotse, the enormous flute-shaped pass of Amphu Laptsa Pass, Ama Dablam. Chukkung has several lodges and is the most popular spot for those climbing Island Peak. If trekkers feel better acclimatized they can head up a grassy slope towards the peak of Chukkung Ri (5550m) for a magnificent view of Makalu. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 09 Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche (4930) Duration: 5-6 hours

Any easy trek after breakfast takes us to Dugla before traversing the steep moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. After crossing the glazier we then pass through the boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend Chupki Lhara passing an array of stones with prayer flags used as memorials to Scott Fischer (American mountaineer) and 10-time Everest summiteer Babu Chiri Sherpa (Nepalese mountain guide) who perished on a mission to climb Everest. The trail then continues to the Khumbu Glacier moraine where before us are some of the great Himalayan peaks – Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur Himal.

Day 10 Trek from Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5170 m) and hike to Everest Base Camp (5364 m) Duration: 6-7 hours

The trail to Gorak Shep passes through the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier passing the pyramid signpost. Soon after we get views of the crest of the north ridge of Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse &Nuptse. A short climb takes us to Thangma Riju from where we have a jaw-dropping 360-degree vista of snow-covered mountains. A steep climb leads us to the top crossing the Changri Glacier and our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green mound beneath Mt. Pumori. As we reach Gorak Shep, we are once again surrounded by snow-capped mountains in every direction including the highest mountain in the world – Mount Everest. After a brief lunch break and time to relax we head along the trail to Everest Base Camp through the Gorak Shep Lake. After reaching Everest Base Camp we will appreciate those Everest climbers whose accent follows the hazardous route through the Khumbu Icefall. From Base Camp, we can see the magnificent peaks of Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori. Everest is not within view from Base Camp. We then head back to Gorak Shep for a well-deserved night’s rest. Most trekkers agree that the sunset view from Kala Patthar is better than the view at sunrise. The setting sun strikes the snow-capped mountains with mesmerizing beauty. Some trekkers may choose to continue with our guides and Sherpas and arrange a hike to Kala Patthar to witness the awesome sunset view rather than waiting until tomorrow.

Day 11 Hike up to Kala Patthar (5545 m) and trek to Lobuche (4940 m) Duration: 6-7 hours

Today is special and is the highlight of our journey. An early morning start allows us to catch the dramatic views from Kala Patthar seeing the new day and the light shining on Mount Everest. We need to be prepared for the dark and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C) before departing on our trek. It is not uncommon to experience some very chilling winds. In the east are many peaks, such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse with Everest gradually exposing itself reveal itself between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kala Patthar, we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints to snap pictures. After several hours of climbing, we reach Kala Patthar before scrambling over a rocky outcrop close to the summit and its cairns and prayer flags. After reaching the summit we can sit on the Kala Patthar rocks absorbing the spectacular views of the Himalayas. From one rock massif to another we are rewarded with numerous opportunities to use our cameras and photo opportunities that will remind you of these enormous mountains. We then head back to Gorak Shep where we have breakfast before a gradual descent to Lobuche for a well deserved night’s rest.

Day 12 Trek from Lobuche to Lobuche High Camp (5400m) Duration:3-4 hours

Today, we begin our trek from Lobuche toward the Lobuche Base Camp. After walking some distance on a relatively flatter plane, the path to the Lobuche Base Camp gets steeper and rocky. Since we will be trekking toward a somewhat lower altitude today, you may it find it easier for your body. Move forward along the Lobuche Glacier, while enjoying the great views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pokalde, Thamserku, Kantega, etc. After reaching the Lobuche Base Camp, take rest for some time and make necessary preparation for the summit. After lunch, our guides will provide training on peak climbing techniques and using climbing gear such as ice axes, climbing boot, harness, zoomer, and how to go up and down using ropes. There will be training on how to fix the ropes, climbing technique, and about the knot and gears. Some training experience would certainly boost up your confidence and climbing skills thus increasing the chances of scaling the summit as well as fully enjoy the experience.

After breakfast, we make our way from Lobuche Base Camp to Lobuche High Camp. The climb takes about 4 hours. The High camp is located at an altitude of 5,600m/18,368 ft. From Base Camp, we follow a path across a rocky moraine before reaching High Camp. Once we reach High Camp we prepare our camp for the overnight stay, have lunch and relax. If you walk around, rather than sit around, this will help you to acclimatize to this high altitude..

Day 13 Summit Lobuche Peak (6119m) & back to Thukla Duration: 7-10 hours.

Today is the day we have been anxiously awaiting. We start our day in the early hours from Lobuche high camp  in order to reach the summit. Lobuche . Arriving at Lobuche summit you can take in spectacular, panoramic and exhilarating views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pumori, and other nearby peaks. Our time at the summit is spent taking photos and taking a short rest before descending back to Thukla.

Day 14 Trek from Thukla to Tengboche Duration: 5-6 hours

Our day begins right after breakfast and then we head downhill from Lobuche Base Camp and again join the Everest Base Camp route at Lobuche. We have lunch at Lobuche before retracing our footsteps back to Pheriche. During our trek to Pheriche, we can again take in the magnificent distant views of Mt. Amadablam. Passing through Pheriche, we continue to Pangboche. Some of the other peaks that you will appreciate our Pokalde, Thamserku, Kantega, and others. We descend and trek down a hillside with layers of rhododendron and juniper trees. If this trek is in spring, the hills will be bright with pink and red rhododendron flowers. After reaching Pangboche you will have an opportunity to visit the famous Pangoche Monastery.

Day 15 Trek from Tengboche to Namche Bazzar (3,440 m) Duration: 5-6 hours.

After crossing the bridge, adorned with prayer flags, over the Dudh Koshi River the trail then traverses the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests. The path eventually reaches Sansa which is the major trail junction in the region. We can then appreciate the ravening splendor of Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Nuptse with every footstep. After a break for lunch, the trail hugs the mountainside before reaching Namche Bazaar and Kyangjuma, winding our way around several bends. We should keep a watchful eye for wild-life, such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants and other animals while passing through the forest. Once we pass a Chorten (Buddhist shrine), we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar. From here we can look back and absorb the beauty of Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche. After reaching our lodge we can take a nice hot shower and enjoy a relaxing night’s rest at Namche Bazaar.

Day 16 Trek from Namche to Lukla (2840m) Duration: 7-8 hours

The trail begins with a steep descent requiring we are careful with each step over this rocky landscape. We cross several suspension bridges over the rapid flowing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries. The trail then levels off and gets easier. The fresh mountain air fills your lungs and prepares you for what lies ahead.. Despite following the same route down we see things from another perspective. We pass through open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance glimpse snow-covered peaks. As we walk through Sherpa villages we witness their devotion to their Buddhist faith and culture, prayer stones and prayer flags while we stroll through the villages. On arrival in Lukla, we stretch our aching legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. As we conclude our trek, filled with unforgettable memories, beaming with joy, with everyone back safe and sound and smiles on their face.

Lobuche Peak is a trekking peak that lies in the Khumbu(Everest) region of Nepal.

It is only 13.5 km away from Mt Everest and very near the Lobuche village and Khumbu glacier.

The summit of Lobuche Peak sits at a height of 6,119m(20,075ft). Actually, there are two faces of Lobuche Peak; Lobuche East(6,119m) and Lobuche West(6,145m). But, Lobuche East is known as the true summit of Lobuche peak due to its accessibility and easiness.

The summit day involves 8 to 10 hours of ascent plus descent to reach the summit and to return back to the Lobuche Base Camp. As for the overall duration, Lobuche Peak Climbing’s itinerary can last from a minimum of 14 days to 20 days. The addition of Everest Base Camp Trek on the Lobuche Peak expedition makes the expedition go long.

Lobuche peak is ideal to climb during the March to May i.e Spring and September to November i.e Autumn. Both of the times are perfectly best due to their stable weather, warm temperature, and clear visibility.

And there are times when you should not do the Lobuche peak or any other climbing. The two times are Winter(December to February) and Monsoon(June to August) which are also termed as the off-seasons for Himalayan adventure. You won’t get stable weather, warm temperature, and clear vision in off-seasons.

Lobuche peak is one of the difficult trekking peaks in Nepal. There is one technical section while ascending the summit where a climber has to ascend 45 degrees steeped snowy trail. That technical section is easily doable with prior mountaineering training and practice with climbing ropes. Other than that, the climb is as easy as other trekking peaks. A simple high altitude trekking experience and climbing training are enough for this expedition.

You can buy climbing gear if you want to have them for the future as well. But, we(Exciting Nepal) can provide climbing essentials on rent until tour completion. However, you should bring other basic trekking essentials by yourself. If you don’t want to do that too, you can hire those basic trekking gear like a down jacket, sleeping bags from Kathmandu.

The chances are good as you will be ascending the high peak of 6,119m. Altitude sickness is prone to everyone who is wandering above 4000m of altitude. If no or fewer precautions are taken then the chances of getting caught by the mountain sickness are real and dangerous too.

Yes, the guides for your service are very much experienced in the field of climbing and trekking. Their succession rate and quality guidance are the things that have kept their position in our team. When traveling with our guides, there is no question about experience and quality.

We have the most economic and covering cost in Nepal for the Lobuche east expedition. It will take USD 2160 per person to do a Lobuche climb with our experienced team.

Yes, You will get a certificate from Nepal Mountaineering Association addressing your successful climb of Lobuche Peak. We do not issue any other certificates from our or any other company.

You have to get a peak climbing permit which is issued by the Nepal Mountaineering Association. The permit fee is variable to various seasons, you can check the permit fee in each of the seasons here, Nepal peak permit fees.

Yes, but until the Lobuche village only. From Lobuche, there are no teahouses further and you have to spend overnights in tented camps. Until Lobuche village, there are plenty of tea houses that provide both charging and wifi facilities in extra charges.
