Discover some of the most outstanding places in the Himalayas on this amazing 20-day program that combines a classic EBC Trek with an unforgettable Lobuche Peak climb.
Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
This 20-day expedition to Lobuche peak and Everest Base Camp is probably one of the most complete hiking programs in Nepal. It combines Tibetan culture with a spectacular Himalayan landscape.
Regarding the itinerary, our meeting point will be in Kathmandu. From there we'll fly to Lukla where we'll have a nice hiking tour to Phakding and Namche Bazar.
We will use the first days for acclimatization as we approach the Everest Base Camp (5365 meters). On the way, we will stop from time to time to meet local people. Once we arrive at the base camp, you won't believe the huge and imposing views of the Everest North Face. Once we reach this classic trekking goal, we will continue on to the climbing segment of the trip as we approach the summit of Lobuche Peak (6119 m), which lies just northwest of the Base Camp.
Please find all the details of the day-by-day program at the bottom of this page. The best months to have a nice mountain trek in this region is from March to May and from September till December. During these seasons I also lead many other programs like this Pisang Peak 17-day climb.
Finally, keep in mind that you'll need an excellent fitness level. Although it's not a technical trek, being well trained physically is mandatory.

Hi! I'm Tshering, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.
I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet. I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
