Lobuche Peak Climbing- 20 Days is a moderate peak that lies in the proximity to Khumbu Glacier and Lobuche village (4940m). First climbed by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen in 1984, Lopuche  East Peak (6119m) is slightly more complex in comparison to  Island Peak and Mera Peak. The cost for Lobuche Peak differs agency to agency. The local and international companies have a common margin falling between USD$3000 and USD$2560 However, Himalayan Wild Treks has limited it to  USD$2500 since quality service for customer satisfaction at reasonable cost has been its deep seated corporate ethics.

Lobuche Peak that offers the splendid view of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Pumori and other peaks is highly recommendable peak for those who aspire to climb more challenging mountains from Annapurna to Everest as it helps with acclimatization and skills. Prior climbing experience is not mandatory, however, basic knowledge regarding peak climbing proves to be contributory. There are two prominent peaks: Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East, out of which Lobuche East Peak is higher and the peak appointed for climbing. As the trekking traverses through plethora of alpine flora and fauna, Sagarmathan National Park, trekkers can see leopard, pheasants, tigers, musk deer, Himalayan Thar, blue sheep, yaks in the forested areas where fir, oak, pine, and juniper trees beautify the region. The phenomenal Sherpa hospitality in Khumbu region, especially at Namche, the Gateway to Everest makes the trekkers feel at home.

Technically stating, Lobuche Peak Climbing starts with a brief sightseeing of the major UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu followed by a flight to Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla (2860m) that opens a door to Namche (3440m)– Tenboche (3860m)– Dingboche (4350m) Chhukung Valley (4710m)– Lobuche (4930m)– Everest Base Camp(5365m)– Gorak Sep (5180m)– Kala Patthar (5555m)– Lobuche (4930m)– Lobuche Base Camp (4950m), from where we summit to Lobuche East Peak (6119m) and descend to Pangboche (4000m)– Namche (3440m) en route to Lukla (2860m), where the trekking comes to the peak climbing comes to an end.
