About the trip
The goal with this trip is to stand on top of the mountain Lobuche peak and look out over a fantastic sunrise over the world’s highest mountains. In front of us we then have a fantastic view of Everest, Cho Oyu and Ama Dablam. The tour can also be combined with a hike to Mount Everest base camp and a the top of Kala Pathar, 5545m. By doing this before, you are well acclimatized and prepared for your climb to the summit of Lobuche. The mountain has two peaks, Lobuche East 6119m and Lobuche West 6135m. On our regular departures, we aim to reach Lobuche East. Before the climb, we rehearse climbing techniques in base camp so that you feel fully prepared and confident before climbing. It is a non-technical mountain, but it is a slightly bigger challenge to climb Lobuche Peak than the other ”trekking” mountains. The climb along the summit ridge up to the main peak includes fun alpine climbing with great views.
The trip starts in Nepal’s capital Kathmandu where we do some sightseeing before flying in a small twinotter airplane to the famous airstrip in Lukla. From there our trek begins that take us through countless Sherpa villages, monasteries and amazing hiking trails up to the foot of the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest and to the top of Lobuche. A memory for life.
Definitely an adventure out of the ordinary. Well organized and world class guides. A memory for life.
Climbing a mountain in the Himalayas is something few are blessed with. To also do it opposite Mount Everest with a view of some of the world’s highest mountains is unique. A rare experience.
The climbing on Lobuche is very nice. If you´ll do the east summit I promise you that I will help you reach the summit.
Date and price
The best time to climb Lobuche is during the spring and autumn when at other times there is a monsoon period with large amounts of rainfall and poor visibility. If you wish, it is possible to combine this tour with a hike to Mount Everest Base Camp and the top of Kala Pathar. If you wish to travel without a Swedish guide, we can arrange a private departure for you.
