Highlights

 
     

    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.

    What People are Saying about Jyamchang Bhote

     

    After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam\'s steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn\'s commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.

    Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s\'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu\'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l\'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l\'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.

    As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium
