Lobuche West Peak Climbing, 20 Days

Days: 20 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)

Lobuche West Peak (6,135 m) is a renowned peak climbing destination situated close to the Khumbu glacier in the Everest region. Filled with wonderful Himalayan sceneries, beautiful Sherpa culture, and diverse wildlife, the climbing journey fulfills every promise of a scintillating trip. During Lobuche Peak Climbing in Nepal, you pass through the beautiful rhododendron forests, cross high suspension bridges and climb through steep and icy slopes to aptly satisfy you with the mystical domain.

Lobuche West Peak Climbing begins with a 35 min scenic flight to Lukla. You walk through the Sagarmatha National Park and make your way to Namche Bazaar which is the gateway to Everest. Namche is the trading hub of the region and carries years of mountaineering history. After a day for acclimatization at Namche, you continue the trek through the dense forests and traditional villages to arrive at the beautiful village of Gokyo. You also climb up the Gokyo Ri (5560 m) which offers great views of Ngozumpa glacier and the surrounding Himalayas. From Lobuche High Camp, the trail is steep and snowy and is often challenging due to the strong winds and high altitude. You spend some quality time at the summit and then head towards Gorakshep. The hike to Kala Patthar is one of the highlights of this trek as you can get breathtaking views of the majestic mountains in the Everest region. Throughout this journey, you will be accompanied by the enchanting views of the snowcapped mountains like Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Nuptse (7,861 m) among many others. Along with these stunning views, you also get to observe the incredible biodiversity of the region and witness the heartwarming hospitality of the Sherpa community. Although classified as a moderate trek, the climb to the summit still requires the assistance of experts and excellent physical fitness. The best times for this peak climbing are during September - November, and March– May.
