Lobuche Nepal East Peak Climbing with EBC

If you are looking for a trek in Nepal, you might already be dreaming of climbing Mount Everest someday. While climbing Everest might sound fantastic, it’s also a deadly experience with no guarantee of you returning alive and hella expensive. But do you know what’s as thrilling as climbing Everest, but the risk of dying or going broke isn’t so high? It’s a smaller yet stunning Lobuche Nepal peak that lies right next to the giant Everest (13.5 km) to the right.

Lobuche Nepal Peak is among the most popular trekking routes with no climbing permit or risk, yet it is as exciting as climbing an 8,000-meter mountain peak. Lobuche Peak has two faces: Lobuche East at 6,119 meters above sea level and Lobuche West at 6,145 meters above sea level. Khumbu region. Among these two faces, Lobuche East is rather easy and achievable in comparison to Lobuche West.

Highlights of Lobuche East Peak Climbing

  • A very thrilling experience for newbie mountain climbers at 6,119m
  • The best 6,000-meter climbing peak in Nepal
  • Splendid panorama of 8000+ mountain peaks such as Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and other small peaks
  • Follow the trail of ancient Everest Base Camp Trek
  • Experience ancient Sherpa culture in Lobuche village and Namche Bazaar
  • Meet a large number of wild animals and fellow trekkers on the way

A Short History of Lobuche Peaks

Today, called “Lobuche East” or “Lobuche Far East”, this is considered quite an easy peak. However, back in 1955, when it was first climbed from the west face by the south shoulder, it wasn’t so easy. The eastern face, which is used for the trek now, was first traced in 1984 by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen. The peak has always been open for foreigners and local climbers, especially as a practice and acclimatization peak before they head to conquer the bigger beast. It is now owned by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) and needs a special permit to climb.

A Lobuche East Climb Overview

Once you book your Lobuche climbing with Himalayan Masters, you can fly to Nepal, and we will pick you up right from the airport. The second day in Kathmandu will be all about trek prep before we fly to Lukla. Now, following the classic Everest Base Camp trail, we reach Namche on the 4th day and stop here for acclimatization. After two more days, we get to Dingboche and stop for a second acclimatization before finally heading to Lobuche and then to Everest Base Camp. After a wonderful morning in Kalapatthar, we trekked to Lobuche Base Camp. From there, we stopped for a day at Lobuche High Camp and succeeded in climbing Lobuche Peak on the 14th day. Then we head back to Lukla, flying to Kathmandu on the 18th day, thus completing a cycle.


Day 01: Arrival and transfer to the hotel

Nothing much about this day. A representative from Himalayan Masters greets you at the TIA in Kathmandu. A short, interactive ride to Thamel and then you will be all alone to rest and explore. In the evening, we might meet for interaction and a welcome party.

Meal : Dinner

Accomodation : Hotel

Walking / Driving : 30 mins drive

Day 02: Trek Preparation Day in Kathmandu

You shall have the first hour by yourself, so you can plan some fun activities like swimming and cycling. At around noon, you will drive to our office, and a guide will brief you on the entire Lobuche Climbing package. Oh, let’s not forget about the permits and cards we need to make. Also, the guide will help you buy or rent any trekking gear, clothes, food, or whatever else. Back at the hotel, we packed all our bags and get ready for the Lobuche Nepal.

Meal : Breakfast

Accomodation : Hotel

Walking / Driving : None

Day 03 : Flight to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2700 MT)

Here here. This is an exciting day coming up on our Louche East Peak climbing. What could be a better kickstart than a thrilling flight to Lukla airport? Just 45 minutes from the Kathmandu airport, you will be transferred to a different alpine landscape and be surrounded by mountains in no time. Here, we will meet our porter and complete some remaining paperwork.

From Lukla, you officially commence your trek. The trail is windy, bumpy, and very scenic. Wandering via the bank of Dudh Koshi, you wouldn’t even notice when four hours pass by. A few ups and downs along the forest take us to Phakding, our destination for the night.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 30 mins flight/ 4 hours walk

Day 04: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3400 MT)

The trail keeps on moving further north as we cross multiple suspension bridges before us. After Phakding, we shall encounter a big settlement of Sherpa people called Monjo. Monjo is also the entry point of Sagarmatha National Park, a protected region for Himalayan wildlife. So, keep your eyes open and ears alert; some snow leopard might be in your way.

From Monjo, it’s a few hours of the climb to Namche Bazaar, the centre of tourists in Khumbu. This beautiful town is definitely the place we should explore.

PS: If you are looking for a cheaper and shorter trek to Everest, Everest View Trek upto Namche Bazaar is the best possible option.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 5 to 6 hours

Day 06: Acclamation day in Namche

After two hard days of walking for Lobuche Trek with EBC, we all deserve a break in Namche. In the morning, we get to hike up to Everest View Hotel for the stunning panorama and sunrise in between that panorama of mountains. Well, if you are feeling lazy, some of those mountains are also visible from your hotel room. Furthermore, there are plenty of places as local museums, schools, and gumbos, to visit in Namche. But nothing beats the fun of watching people while sipping a fresh cup of expresso with bread. Beyond this, you wouldn’t find any fresh bakery. Also, there are some great restaurants and bars for some fun.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 2 to 3 hours

Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3900 Mt)

The morning begins softly as we walk down to Ohuki and Phunki Tenga for a short time. After a short time here, we walk upside down with the stunning view of Everest and Ama Dablam towards Tengboche Monastery. While you might enter the monastery here, or we can come back later for evening prayer. Some minutes through, the colourful player flags take us to the core of Tengboche. We found a beautiful tea house to spend our night and crashed there.

Everest, Lobuche, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and many other peaks are glanceable in one sight from here. Not only that, but you can also celebrate a time being at one of the largest Sherpa settlements, Lobuche Nepal East Peak climbing.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 5 to 6 hours

Day 07: Trek to Dingboche ( 4400 Mt)

If you haven’t joined the prayer at Tengboche monastery in the evening, now is the right time to do so. After breakfast, the path follows a quick forest and leads us down to the river bed of Imja Khola. There’s only a limited stop en route here to stop for lunch.
After a quick stop at Imja Khola, it’s a rather uphill stop to Pangboche. While the views from this Sherpa settlement are fabulous, getting there isn’t so easy. Even here, you will find a Gomba, which is very important to the locals of Khumbu.
Now, after a quick stop here at Pangboche, our plan for today is to head towards Dingboche. Following the route marked by Imja Valley it takes us about two hours to reach Dingboche.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Walking / Driving : 4 to 5 hours

Day 08: Acclimatization day in Dingboche

Now, let that body rest before the real adventure begins. As we are gaining altitude quickly, it’s ideal to take a rest day here at Dingboche and see the nearby areas. If you wish, you can hike unto Nagarjun Hill at 5100 mt in the morning. Or you can sleep until 10 am. LOL.

While you stop, you can also explore the Chhukung and Imja valleys. Get some music and enjoy the mountains that appear stunning down here. Everest seems magical while many other mountains will keep you entrained.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 2 to 3 hours

Day 09: Trek to Lobuche (4900 Mt.)

After a rest day, everyone’s boosted up for another great day of walking. As the morning breakfast, we follow the classic route to Everest base camp. Between Lobuche and Dingboche, Dughla is the only place where we can stop for some refreshments. After our launch here, we continue to pass through the Alpine meadow. Around three hours of a walk along the riverside is going to be quite interesting as the mountain appears even closer.

Reaching Lobuche village, you will find the weather to be extremely cold. The heated dining room and warm soup is the only thing that can get you through the night.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 6 to 7 hours

Day 10: Trek to Gorakshep andC (5464 Mt)

Be ready for a very rewarding and memorable day of your entire trek. Leaving Lobuche quite early in the morning, we head on a rocky path to Everest base camp. We quickly rushed to Gorakshep and enjoyed a quick lunch made for us. Then we will be provided with room in our tea house where we can unpack our bags and soon head to Everest Base camp. The short work of about two hours from Gorakhshep to Everest base camp is going to tiresome but definitely pleasing.

Upon reaching Everest base camp, you will be mesmerized by the view of the world’s tallest mountain. Along with the majestic Everest before you, there are other Himalayas peaks surrounding you in all directions. Remember to take a lot of photos and pictures while also doing some meditation at this place. Every minute you spend here is going to be a memory you shall cherish for a lifetime, so make sure to enjoy your time. Before evening, we head back to our hotel guest house. Make sure that you go to bed soon because we have an early morning tomorrow for an even more exciting day of Lobuche Peak climbing.

PS: You can skip all these walks with Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour and head to Lobuche from EBC.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Walking / Driving : 7 to 8 hours

Day 11: Visit Kalapatther and Trek to Lobuche Base Camp

It’s going to be hard but a very interesting day. We wake up at around 4 o’clock in the morning and pack our breakfast. With the help of a flashlight, we start to climb a big rocky peak that lies before us. This black rock named Kalapatthar is the major attraction of Everest base camp where you can see the entire panorama of many 8000+ meter plus mountains and dozens of other Himalayan vistas. The hike to Kalapathar is about two hours long and we reach there before sunrise. This is going to be the most beautiful sunrise you ever witnessed in your entire life. After about an hour here, we climb down to Gorakhshep.

Back to Gorakshep, we have some lunch and then trace our route towards Lobuche. Our destination for the night is Lobuche base camp. It’s important that we reach the base camp early so that we have time to set up our camps and prepare dinner for the night. This going to be your first camping experience in the Himalayas.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Camping

Walking / Driving : 7 to 8 hours

Day 12: Trek to Lobuche High Camp (5600 mt.)

Lobuche High Camp is only about three hours of work from the base camp. This means we are going to have a relaxing day on a mountain without a rush to climb up. In the morning, we take our time to prepare the breakfast and then we head towards the high camp. Most probably, you wouldn’t need any ropes and crampons. However, if you do need some trekking equipment, our guys will definitely assist you.

Our plan is to reach Lobuche High Camp during mid-day so that their team members can fix the rope to the summit. Before going to fix the ropes, it’s important to set up the camp and prepare some food for today and the following day to come.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Camping

Walking / Driving : 4 to 6 hours

Day 13: Climb Lobuche summit (6119) and back to High camp.

The day keeps on getting more challenging and interesting. This is the hardest and yet the most important day of our Lobuche expedition. The journey starts at around three in the morning and we follow the ropes set by our guys. The guide and porter will assist you in using crampons and axes value move along the rope line. Make sure that you listen to everything the instructor is saying and follow the rules. Our plan is to get ready to submit before noon so that the wind will not be very harsh. The view from the Lobuche summit is unbelievable. The Panorama of the mountain vistas below your feet is obviously going to make a lifetime of memory. We spend about half an hour at the summit before we follow the way back to the high camp. We will walk down with the assistance of Rope and crampons. Back at the hike camp, we prepare our mail to celebrate the victory.

Day 14: Labuche High Camp to Pangboche

After successfully assent to the Lobuche East summit climb, it’s time to go back and join the classic Everest base camp route.

After three nights of camping in the mountains, now you get to enjoy a warm shower and comfortable sleep on a mattress.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea house

Walking / Driving : 5 to 6 hours

Day 16 : Trek to Lukla

The path from Namche Bazzar to Lukla is quite long, but since we’re mostly walking downwards, it’s not going to be very difficult.

Meal : Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accomodation : Tea House

Day 17: Fly to Kathmandu

After an early morning breakfast with the beautiful Himalayan vistas, we wave a final goodbye to the Khumbu region.

Upon arrival in Kathmandu, we spent our time to rest and relax after more than two weeks of climb. This is a great time to book some spa sessions or parlour time for the ladies.

Now, you can either go back to your home country or extend your day trips to Nepal.

The best season and weather to climb Labuche

As you will be trekking above 4000 m up to 6100 m, the weather at Lobuche Peak is definitely going to be harsh. Most of the year, the entire area is covered with snow and the cold, breezy wind keeps hitting your skin. Only a few months of summer from June to August are hot, and even then the rainfall makes it hard to walk. The winter temperature in higher mountains can drop to -20°C while the summer temperature is around -5°C. So, no matter when you decide to travel, you must be prepared for the cold weather. 

Climbing exports from Nepal suggest that the month of August, from September to November, is the best time for climbing Lobuche East. At this time, the layer of snow is thin, and the chances of rainfall are also close to zero. Furthermore, spring, which means April, March, and May, are also good months for climbing. During spring, you can see the colourful blooms of wildflowers and the weather is also predictable. Even though some trekking agencies claim that Lobuche Peak climbing in winter is possible, we highly discourage winter climbing. Summer climbing might be possible but the slippery path during the monsoon and mosquitoes in tea houses aren’t going to make your trip any better. Summer treks in Nepal are good for semi-arid reasons, such as in the Upper Mustang only. 

How will you meet the Himalayan Masters Team?

Our coordination begins even before you land in Nepal. You just need to send us an email and our team will assist you in planning the Lobuce Climb itinerary and overall trek. We help you with all physical and mental preparation for the trek. Most importantly, we help you plan your budget and shop in your home country.

When you land in Nepal, we will be right there to pick you up at the airport. All transportation and accommodations in Nepal will be our responsibility; you have nothing to worry about. From the airport, you will get to Thamel, where we will meet with the rest of the crew. The guide will arrange the remaining trekking gear, such as jackets, sleeping bags, boots, and more. We will also help you pack your bags and move for the Lobuche Trek.

Risks and remedies for Lobuche Peak Climb

  1. Altitude sickness above 3000 meters is the most common risk for Lobuche East climbers. Remedy: You already have 2 acclamation days in your itinerary. If you need more rest days at higher altitudes, that can be easily arranged. Also, drinking lots of water and low-carb food helps you with altitude sickness. The guide will also do some meditation for you.
  2. Drinking water can be quite expensive and take up a large proportion of your budget. Remedy: Get a water bottle and a purifying tablet for the entire trek. Any other kind of solar filter bottle is also okay.
  3. Unpredictable weather might delay or stop your climb at any time. Remedy: If the snowfall is heavy or it’s very windy, we wait for a day or two in the lower altitudes and wait for things to calm down. If the harsh weather continues, we might have to change the route or shorten the trip. Your guide will help you make such a decision. 


What will happen to me if I am sick or cannot complete the trek?

There is a high chance that you might have to be evacuated from the mountain. This is why every traveler must get travel insurance from their home country before they book the trip. You must ensure that it covers all kinds of rescue and evacuations at higher altitudes.
