The heavenly views from Mt. Lobuche make it one of the most prominent Himalayan Peak, in spite of it being more testing than that of adjacent Island Peak. From the summit, you’ll have the capacity to look out at powerful Everest, and in addition a few crests on the Tibetan side of the Rongbuk. It’s an ordeal you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
We prepare for the Lobuche summit push with a stop at the Everest Base Camp. Here, you’ll learn about mountain life and a lesson on climbing. Our bodies will likewise acclimatize for the thin air on Lobuche! Altitude sickness is something we endeavor to dodge, and our deliberately made schedule is intended for ideal modification.
We will be using 3-4 star hotel in Kathmandu on twin sharing basis and guest house during the trek as well tented camps for the climbing of Lobuche East Peak.
