Standing at 6,119m above sea level, high above the glaciers of the Khumbu region of Nepal, Lobuche East is a significant peak, but also one of the most popular, and the easiest to climb. Classified as a “trekking peak” it requires physical fitness and mountain awareness, but doesn’t demand much in the way of technical climbing ability. For this reason we often recommend it to climbers looking to tackle their first Himalayan peak.


What the adventure involves :

If you’re looking to take your first steps as a Himalayan mountaineer, Lobuche East is the perfect peak to start on. As with all Royal Nepal Group’s treks and trips, our expedition plan on this peak has been set out by our leaders. Taking 20 days from arrival in Kathmandu to departure at the other end, we give you plenty of time to acclimatize and take in the sights and sounds of the incredible Khumbu region. The trek will take you through Namche Bazaar, the monastery town of Tengboche, and Dingboche. We’ll also take a trip to Everest Base Camp. 

The bulk of our team at Royal Nepal Group hail from the Himalayas, meaning that our collective knowledge of these mountains is second to none. This unparalleled experience makes us uniquely placed to introduce you to this range, and this climb is one of the perfect ways to do it.

Summiting Lobuche Peak requires a high level of cardiovascular fitness, but you don’t necessarily need advanced mountaineering skills. As long as you’re comfortable operating in high alpine environments, can use crampons, and handle an ice axe, the climb shouldn’t present too many difficulties. For this reason, we often recommend Lobuche East as the first step for people who are looking to build up to more serious mountaineering objectives in the future.

Our team’s Nepalese heritage and ability to bridge the gap between Western and Himalayan climbing cultures allows us to run every aspect of our operation smoothly, without fear of misunderstandings. We pride ourselves on our ability to control every aspect of expedition planning - from ferrying-in food, to fixing ropes - so we’re never dependent on third parties.

As well as being hugely experienced mountaineers, our guides are trained in the latest mountain rescue techniques, and their operational rescue and recovery experience is second to none. Our intimate knowledge of these mountains, and extraction routes, enables us to move faster than anyone should something unexpected happen. We have evacuation plans in place, and helicopters on standby in case of emergencies. If you’re planning on climbing in the Himalayas, you couldn’t be in more experienced or safer hands.
