Trip Introduction;
Lobuche Peak with Everest Base Camp Trek is an excellent opportunity to explore and experience world’s classic ‘Everest Base Camp Trek’ route, combined with amazing peak climbing adventure trip. Lobuche Peak is located north west from Everest Base Camp. The first successful summit of Lobuche East Peak 6,119m was made by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa in 25 April 1984. From the summit, we will be rewarded with beautiful views of world’s popular and highest mountain ranges including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Amadablam, Cholatse, Pumori and many other snow-covered peaks.

Lobuche Peak with Everest Base Camp Trek starts with a scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and Everest region of Nepal. After landing at the airstrip of Lukla we begin our trekking journey that is a gradual uphill trek through dense rhododendron filled forests towards Namche Bazaar – A Sherpa Kingdom. At Namche we will take a rest day for safe acclimatization and for exploring around Namche Bazaar. From Namche, we continue our trek on a main EBC trail that heads towards Tyangboche Monastery. From this point we can have great views of Mt. Amadablam 6812m. Passing through Tyangboche, we gradually head towards Pangboche, Dingboche, Lobuche then to Gorakshep.

From Gorakshep we continue to trek until we reach Everest Base Camp. We will spend some time at the base camp and return back to Gorakshep. Following day, we will accomplish an early morning hike to Kalapatthar for enjoying the magnificent sunrise view over Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. Makalu 8481m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m and other surrounding peaks. From Kalapatthar we descend down towards Gorakshep and trek towards Lobuche Base Camp. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears we will follow the instructions of experienced Sherpa experts and head towards the summit. After successful completion of Lobuche Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek, we return back to Lukla for flying back to Kathmandu.

LOBUCHE PEAK with EBC - Awesome trip !!!! Thanks NGTs !!!!!!

The whole idea of reaching Everest Base Camp and summiting Lobuche Peak is what attracted us. We booked the trip right away with a total of 4 person in our group. Trekking along the high mountain valleys with views of world’s towering mountains was a great feeling.

Our climbing expert guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa, a wise and caring person with good technical climbing experience. Following his footsteps we reached Lobuche Peak summit. The tiring climb was worth. We had great views of world’s towering mountains including Everest.

Many thanks to NGT team for a memorable trip !!!

Best of Luck for future !!!

Great Experience ' Lobuche Peak' and EBC

We are a group of 6 people from France. We booked this trip with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition through internet. At first we were not sure how it was going to be. But now, after we have completed the trip we can say that – Nepal Guide Treks is a serious company with all the team members working together for successful trips. Honestly we enjoyed every moment of the trip. Our guide was Ang-Dendi Sherpa, very energetic person. We would like to do more climbing under his guidance in future. We recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for any kind of adventured related activities in Nepal !!!

Cheers !!

Memorable Peak Summit with Nepal Guide 

Firstly, we scared to choose Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition from online but the situation turned into 360 degree. I cannot imagine, what a wonderful peak climbing experience. One of the crucial parts of this company is, they have experience on peak climbing in Nepal, and they can give us more than other can do. They always provide always experienced mountain leader since our trip totally based on Climbing Guide. Definitely return back to Nepal soon…….. miss you all Nepalese people.

Everest tour & Lobuche Summit 

Just returned back to home with lots of wonderful memories from Nepal. We got good service from Nepalese trekking agency more than our expectation. First we contact with outbound tour operator agency in our country then they told us the fact that they have good B2B relation with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We found them cost reliable according with service.

If I go Nepal again, I will certainly use Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for better experience.

Lobuche Peak Climb & EBC Trek

After complete 6 times trekking experience, this year we did Lobuche East Peak Climbing in Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. I know, Nepal Guide Treks is experienced trekking and peak climbing based company and I am kinda fan of them. It’s our fortunate to complete and return back here before the earthquake. We complete our Nepal tour one day prior the devastating earthquake….. Very sad….. Ruined lots of things, feeling very sorry.
I am sure I will go back soon Nepal to help Nepalese people; I am requesting Prakash Devkota to arrange volunteering opportunity over there.
