This peak climbing adventure will firstly take you the famous Everest Base Camp and onwards the the summit of Lobuche Eaast Peak. Lobuche peak lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and has two main peaks, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East. The massive Louche East peak stands at  6119m and is somewhat secluded allowing for more privacy. You will have close views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cholatse and Pumori. Lobuche East peak is more challenging than the other two famous trekking peaks Island Peak and Mera Peak. This climb is moderately challenging, but does not require any specialized training or experience. The standard route is up the South East Ridge.

After your arrival we will have a gear check with you, and make all the necessary preparations for the permits. The adventure begins with the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. First you will follow the famous trail to Everest base camp. A visit at base camp will inspire you, but is also a good chance to acclimatize to the high altitude. After Gorakshep you will turn over a moraine path towards the Lobuche high camp. The tented high camp is near a lake in a rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated southwest face. Early in the morning you will leave the high camp for your ascend to the summit. Using the south ridge to the summit is the easiest and also the most popular route to the summit. From the summit of Lobuche East peak you will get amazing views of the famous Everest, alongside Lhotse, Nuptse and the Pumori. After the summit you descend within a couple of days to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
