As you are ready for the Lobuche East Peak Climbing journey with the instructions, maps, and other resources, we set off on a trek from Lobuche to Lobuche High Camp on the second day. This trek requires around 6 hours of walking and takes you to an altitude of 5400 meters.

The trek from Lobuche to Lobuche High Camp is a journey full of pain and pleasure. You will certainly feel some difficulty because of the uneven rugged terrain, often scorching sunlight, and many other common high-altitude issues. However, all you require is a strong mindset and a thought of what is waiting at the end of the journey.

It is certain that as you ascend higher and higher, the air thins out and you can experience some difficulty in walking. However, if you think about the other side of the coin, you will be surrounded by amazing vistas of the nearby mountains, walking along the snow, playing, singing, concentrating, and above all the successful completion of your first peak climb experience.

After around three hours of straight-up inclines and a few more hours of walking, we finally reached the Lobuche High Camp (5400 meters). Now, this is a place where you can get another new experience i.e., camping in the snow. Yes, we spend the night in a tent, and lunch and dinner will be packed that needs to be warmed up before eating.

  • Lunch, and Dinner
  • 6 Hours

After having a packed breakfast early in the morning, we will start the major part of this peak, which is the Lobuche Peak Climb. The journey gets even more challenging than Day 2 because of the ascend in the route. Before heading to the peak climbing journey, our representatives recheck all the equipment and gear of the trekkers.

We start the ascend to Lobuche Peak without crampons on but the crampons get on our legs as soon as we reach the snowline. Remember that, the climb to Lobuche Peak is impossible without proper gear including crampons because of the slippery and wet trails. After walking for about 4-5 hours on the snow-covered path across the rugged trail. we finally reach the Lobuche East Peak at an altitude of 6119 meters.

Upon reaching Lobuche Peak, you can enjoy for some time, click photos, and videos, watch the eye-soothing panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, play with the snow, and take a clean and clear breath of success. Then we initiate our descending journey. We will walk from the Lobuche peak to reach Thukla (4620 meters) on the same day. As we ascend and descend on the same day, today you will have to walk for around 9-10 hours in total.

Once you reach Labuche, you can either set off on the Everest Base Camp Trekking or return to Dingboche and lower to end the EBC trek. Remember that the 3-day Lobuche Peak Climbing cost only covers a walk from Lobuche to Labuche, so, for this trip, Labuche will be our ending point.

    Such a confident-raising journey it was!

    The Lobuche Peak Climbing with Green Valley Trekking was certainly a confidence booster for me. Seriously, if I can be at 6119 meters above sea level that easily, I can conquer the world. That's what I thought when I looked around with my proud breathing from the Lobuche Peak. At first, I thought I would get tired and could not do the EBC trek. However, once we returned to Thukla, I was full of confidence. Thank you Arjun and Raj for suggesting this trek and thanks to the guide for making it a success for me.

    Tiresome but awesome journey!

    I just can't believe that I climbed a peak over 6000 meters, that too, within 3 days. I don't even have words to describe how beautiful the route was. Well, we certainly had to cover a long distance in a single day but still, it was all fun and games with such amazing guides. 3 on 3 days, they checked our equipment before starting the trail and always tried to make us maintain a slow and steady pace which helped us a lot to keep balance between the altitude and respiration. It certainly was a tiring experience but not something I should have missed while in the Khumbu region.
