Lobuche West Peak Climbing, 22 Days

Days: 22 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)

Lobuche West Peak Climbing is challenging trekking peaks in Everest region. Lobuche east peak is an attractive summit and offers various routes for climbing. The normal route for climbing is through South Ridge. Lobuche West peak consists of several small summits and the true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes to the top from the summit ridge. The Lobuche West was recently opened by the NMA for the trekkers as well. The sharp ridged & snow areas of the mountain require the climbers to be roped and use crampons and ice axe. The team of experienced high altitude Sherpas assists and guides the group with the climb and a team of porters and low altitude Sherpas work for the organization of equipment, tents and food. The approach follows the "Gokyo Lake" itinerary, one of Nepal's most famous treks, through the Khumbu Mountains - Sherpa country. After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen. Through small yak-grazing settlements we reach the Gokyo Lakes where we climb the Gokyo Ri (5480 m) and enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo. After the Cho La pass, we reach Dzongla and further up the base camp. The climb includes some technical difficulties on quite steep (45 - 50 degree) snow/ice slopes and requires the use of fixed ropes. The views of Ama Dablam and Taweche are spectacular. After the Lobuche Peak ascent, we continue towards Gorak Shep and climb to Kala Pattar (5545 m) from where we enjoy an impressive up-close view of Everest. Our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery, where we rest and savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856m), Kantega (6809m), Kwangde (6194m), Nuptse (7879m), and Lhotse (8511m), to name but a few.
