Description

Combine the climbing of the Lobuche peak with the trekking to the Everest base camp as I lead you on this 18-day Nepalese adventure.

The Lobuche consists of two summits, the east (6,119 meters) and west (6,145 meters). The east is a recognized trekking path, with the west an expedition peak.

The dark rocky triangular Lobuche rises over the Khumbu glacier to stunning skylines.

The region that we climb in is rich in Buddhist culture and offers magnificent views and panoramas.

Continuing forward we descend and climb the steep snowy slopes to reach the peak of Lobuche East. Recognized as a group B peak, it is considered a challenging climb, and the most difficult of the trekking peaks. However, it is attainable, and ideal for trainee mountaineers.

Highlights include the spectacular views of the Khumbu and Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho Oyu Pumori and lots more.

This exciting trip combines the Kalapathar trek with the Everest base camp.

Due to the level of difficulty involved during this trip, participants are required to have great fitness and previous climbing experience.

Reserve your place now amidst the majestic mountains of Nepal. Trek to the Everest base camp and climb the Lobuche peak with rewards of stunning skylines.

Accommodation

1 night accommodation in a tent on camp, accommodation during the trek (14 nights) and a hotel in Kathmandu (4 nights), based on 2 people sharing.
