Lobuche East Expedition with Everest Base Camp Trip Overview:

Lobuche East Expedition with Everest Base Camp is a trip of a lifetime that gives you a beautiful experience of both trekking and climbing. Beginning from Lukla, the journey takes you through lush valleys and charming Sherpa villages, allowing you to enjoy the culture of the high Himalayas. As you trek deeper along the Dudh Kosi river valley into the Khumbu region towards Mount Everest, the landscape becomes increasingly spectacular. The days are filled with mesmerizing views of snow-capped giants like Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kangtega, and Kusum Kangguru.

Ultimately, you arrive at Everest Base Camp and the breathtaking Khumbu icefall. Standing at the foot of the world’s highest peak is a profoundly moving experience. Enclosed by the Himalayas and filled with spectacular scenery, Everest certainly proves as an incredible experience not found elsewhere.

Lobuche East Expedition is after the completion of the adventurous trek to Everest base camp (5,360 m/17,585 feet) and Kalapathar (5,545 m/18,192 feet). We head back to the village of Lobuche for lunch and enter into a different but exquisite valley towards Lobuche base camp which is at the height of 4,950 m/16,240 feet. Here the cook is accountable for all the diverse meals and is proficient in hygiene, meal variety, and presentation. They are masters at preparing selections of food under less-than-ideal conditions.

Our accomplished climbing Sherpa will conduct a clinical course on required climbing skills and safety measures. Lobuche Peak (6,119 m/20,0,70 feet) has always served as a preparation arena for mountaineers before scaling any high peaks. Lobuche East Expedition offers anyone with exhilarating climbing experience with its challenges and breathtaking views from the summit. Our itinerary for the Lobuche East Expedition With Everest Base Camp is so designed that we craft enough time for acclimatization. This healthier adaptation to the thin-air environment that exists in the Everest region could eventually guarantee everyone a safe passage to where we are going.

About Lobuche Peak (6,119 m/20,0,70 ft)

Lobuche Peak is a mountain located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, in the Himalayas. It is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal and is often climbed as part of the Everest Base Camp trek or the Gokyo Lakes trek.

Lobuche Peak has two main summits: Lobuche East (6,119 meters/20,075 feet) and Lobuche West (6,145 meters/20,161 feet). Lobuche East is the more frequently climbed summit and is considered a moderate technical climb, requiring basic mountaineering skills such as using crampons, ice axes, and ropes.

The climb to the summit of Lobuche Peak typically takes around 20 days from Kathmandu, including acclimatization days and trekking to and from the mountain. The climb itself takes around 3 to 4 days, depending on the route and weather conditions.

Lobuche Peak offers stunning views of the surrounding peaks, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and Pumori. It is a popular destination for climbers looking to experience the thrill of Himalayan mountaineering without committing to a more challenging expedition like climbing Mount Everest.

Climbing Lobuche Peak: 

Climbing Lobuche Peak is an exciting and challenging adventure. Standing at an elevation of 6,119 meters (20,075 feet) Lobuche Peak offers stunning panoramic views of the surrounding royal peaks.

Here are some important points to consider when planning to climb Lobuche Peak:

  • Physical Fitness: Climbing Lobuche Peak requires a good level of physical fitness and stamina. It is recommended to engage in regular cardio and strength training exercises to prepare your body for the demanding climb.
  • Acclimatization: Acclimatization is crucial when climbing at high altitudes. Spending a few days in the Everest region, gradually ascending and allowing your body to adjust to the decreasing oxygen levels, is essential. Many climbers follow the classic Everest Base Camp trek route to acclimatize before attempting Lobuche Peak.
  • Technical Skills: Lobuche Peak is a technically demanding climb, and prior mountaineering experience is highly recommended. It involves using crampons, ropes, and ice axes to navigate through snow and ice. Familiarity with glacier travel, rope management, and crevasse rescue techniques is vital.
  • Guided Expedition: It is advisable to join a guided expedition with experienced mountaineering guides. Nepal Pyramids always organized a guided expedition to Lobuche Peak. We as well provide all the necessary equipment, local knowledge, and assistance throughout the climb. 
  • Permits: Climbing Lobuche Peak requires climbing permits from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Nepal Pyramids arranges everything prior to your arrival in Kathmandu.
  • Weather Conditions: The weather in the Everest region can be unpredictable, with rapidly changing conditions. The climbing season for Lobuche Peak is typically in the spring (April-May) and autumn (September-October) when the weather is more stable. It is crucial to monitor weather forecasts and be prepared for adverse conditions.
  • Safety Precautions: Safety is our top priority during the climb. We always follow safety instructions and request all our clients to follow their leaders. Furthermore, the use of proper mountaineering equipment, and being aware of potential hazards such as avalanches, crevasses, and altitude sickness is crucial.

Camping at Lobuche Base Camp (4,950 m/16,240 ft)

Camping at Lobuche Base Camp can be a memorable experience during your climb. Lobuche Base Camp is situated in a picturesque location in the Everest region of Nepal, surrounded by stunning mountain vistas. It offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Himalayas.

  • Facilities: Unlike some larger and more established base camps, Lobuche Base Camp is relatively basic. However, we offer comfy camping facilities such as a two-member tent, dining tent, kitchen, and toilet facilities. However, keep in mind that these facilities might be limited and shared among multiple climbing teams.
  • Acclimatization: Spending a few days at Lobuche Base Camp allows for crucial acclimatization before attempting the summit of Lobuche Peak. It gives your body time to adjust to the high altitude, reducing the risk of altitude sickness. Follow the guidance of your guides regarding the acclimatization schedule.
  • Environmental Considerations: It is important to practice Leave No Trace principles while camping at Lobuche Base Camp. Respect the natural environment and minimize your impact by properly disposing of waste, avoiding excessive noise, and leaving the area as you found it.
  • Camping food: At Lobuche Peak base camp our cooks are professional in preparing a variety of food under less-than-ideal conditions. They are the master chef who out of limited resources, pre-packed food and frozen vegetables can come up with astonishing delightful food items.

Who First Climbed Lobuche Peak?

The first recorded successful summit of Lobuche West (6,119 meters) was achieved in 1955 by an expedition team ascending via the South Shoulder route, however, the exact identities of the climbers and their nationalities is unknown. Lobuche Peak itself, standing at 6,145 meters, has even less documented information regarding the initial ascent and first summiters.

In contrast, the mountaineering details surrounding Lobuche East (6,119 meters) have been clearly preserved. On April 25th, 1984, American climber Laurence Nielson and Nepalese Sherpa Ang Gyalzen made the first confirmed climb to reach the top of Lobuche East. This ascent of Lobuche East has been recognized as the inaugural recorded summit of the peak.

The Lobuche subsidiary peaks, including Lobuche West, Lobuche Peak, and Lobuche East, form part of the towering ridge that defines the Khumbu Glacier valley that leads climbers toward Mount Everest. While expeditions have explored these imposing Himalayan highlands for decades, the records required to track first ascents remain incomplete across many of the smaller, yet still extreme mountains. The 1984 Lobuche East climb with documented proof marks the first recorded ascent of Lobuche Peak.

    The unpredictability of Flights flying to and from Lukla Airport, the gateway to Mount Everest, and the world’s most electrifying airport is pretty evident from its history of delays and cancellations. Diverse factors lead to the situation of cancellation including the weather, technical issues, poor visibility, etc. In such conditions, Nepal Pyramids will charter a helicopter to make certain that you don’t miss your trip or your international flight. But again under these circumstances, the possibility of flying a helicopter depends on the Nepal Civil Aviation flying rules.

    Travelers are to pay the cost of the chartered helicopter which is payable through cash, traveler’s cheques, or credit cards (Visa and Master Cards only). Travelers will be provided with a receipt upon payment so that they may claim the amount from their travel insurance. The cost per person depends on the number of people taking this facility.


    We have a contingency day on Day 16 so that it would cushion your summit day just in case you missed it over bad weather or any other circumstances. However, if everything goes as planned you can always utilize your contingency day somewhere on your trip on the way back or you can have a leisure day in Kathmandu, the living heritage city, which certainly gives anyone more of a chance to explore Kathmandu, the capital, ‘The Shining Pearl of Asia’ with its beautiful temples, monuments, and time-honored legends and history.

Besides, our airport has one single airstrip for both international and domestic flights the probability of delays is pretty high. Nevertheless, anyone flying to Lukla must be prepared to take these circumstances with patience. Though it’s not a regular status quo yet it’s always very wise to have a contingency day in Kathmandu to cushion any cancellation situation.

It is time-consuming as well unless you have enough time and are all geared up to explore the paradise-like Jiri. However, the walk from Jiri to Everest is another breathtaking adventure. The next alternative will be taking a Helicopter to Lukla which will certainly add up the additional cost to your package.
