If you thought Himalaya Caravan Adventure were short of amazing peak climbing experiences in Nepal then think again. In our dedication towards helping you experience a wide diversity of experiences whilst in Nepal we offer you the Lobuche peak (6119m) experience. Lobuche East and Lobuche West were both first conquered on April 25th
, 1984by both Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Serpa. Lobuche peak offers an attractive pull through its existing routes and the rare occurrence of having potential for new routes. Climbing Lobuche peak is one of the more challenging trekking adventures in the Everest region.
The normal Peak climbing trekking route is from the South ridge, however, the east peak climb consists of several smaller summits that prepare you for the truly awesome summit. The peak climb requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes which is truly exhilarating. The Everest base camp route is initially followed through Pheriche and then to Dughla until Mount Everest base camp is reached, this is a good place for acclimatization and the same route is taken on the way back down to Lobuche and Lobuche base camp. As you may already imagine, this is a spectacular climb with a spectacular view of the Khumba valley and glacier. But why leave it all to your imagination? There is awe and wonder to be experienced here like never before and perhaps this region is calling you to grow through the experience to be had.
