Lobuche Peak Climbing
Close to roaring Khumbu Glacier and situated just above to wonderful Lobuche village; Lobuche Peak is one of the famous climbing peaks in Nepal. Just a few miles away from Mount Everest; it has two peaks- Lobuche East Peak (6,119m.) and Lobuche West Peak (6,145m.) where both peaks offer equally mesmerising views of snowcapped mountains of Khumbu Region and we offer climbing of Lobuche East Peak (6,119m.). Levelled as technical climbing peak; it was Laurence Neilson and Gyalzen Sherpa who successfully ascended Lobuche Peak first in 1984. Shaped like the pyramid it is a relatively difficult climbing peak in compare to Island Peak, Mera peak and other climbing peaks of Nepal. Ideally, suited for climbers having previous mountaineering experience and with sound body and health.
Starts with exploring the Sherpa Capital and visiting the Sherpa and Hilary Museum at Namche Bazar. It also advances to explore the traditional cultures and the years old living style of Sherpa people of Everest Region. Walking through Buddhist Monasteries in Tengboche; the superb mountains views it offers from there is something which adds more fun and excitement to the climbing trip. Exploring the local cultures, a sweet hello from them and their warm hospitality makes a trip even better. Exploration of various flora and faunas of Sagarmatha National Park; astonishing mountain views from Kalapathar (5,545m.)- best sunrise view point in the world which advances to view sun waking up with Mount Everest and neighbouring mountains are other ticks of the adventure.
