20 Days Everest Region Strenuous Climbing

Lobuche Peak Climb
Lobuche Peak Climb is one of the most recommended 6000 meters peaks that are easily accessible. This program is for climbing the east summit, it’s less technical and easy to climb. This meticulously crafted Lobuche Peak Climb 20 days Expedition Itinerary offers a gradual acclimatization process, guiding you through the Khumbu Valley, ascending towards Everest Base Camp, and steadily advancing toward the summit of Lobuche East Peak. Notably, this peak serves as a crucial training ground for Everest summit teams, aiding in their preparation before embarking on the ultimate ascent.
On the approach to climb Lobuche peak, we will take the traditional Everest Gokyo lake Trail, leaving from Lukla and heading up the impressive Khumbu Valley. Along the trail we will spend 2 nights acclimatizing in Namche Bazar, the Sherpa capital of the Region. We will also visit impressive monasteries and view remarkable scenery as we pass numerous seven and eight thousand meter peaks on the trail. We really only run private group climbs to Lobuche peak.
Lobuche East Peak stands out as one of Nepal's most renowned climbing peaks exceeding 6,000 meters. The peak has two summits: East and West summits. Most climbers attempting to climb Everest in spring climb Lobuche Peak as an alternative to acclimatization to Camp-I to minimize the risk of the Khumbu Icefall.
