EBC and Lobuche peak climbing-18 days

Everest Base Camp trek is one of the most famous treks in the world. It takes you into the heart of the Nepalese Himalaya, with incredible awe-inspiring views of many of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains. Everest Base Camp is recommended as a “must-see before dying destination” by Lonely Planet. On our Everest Base Camp Trek, we follow the footsteps of legend Sir Edmund Hillary as we ascend from verdant Lukla Airport to the vast glaciers and razor-sharp ridgelines of the Everest Himalayas, home of the world’s highest peaks. Along the way, we will encounter the most hospitable and friendly Sherpa people and get to know their lifestyle, colorful festivals & Buddhist monasteries surrounded by unique flora and fauna. Also, the trail passes with the carved Mani stone, Prayer flags, Prayer wheels, and singing prayers for everyone’s well-being. Perhaps even a glimpse of the mysterious Yeti (just Kidding). The story of this mountain inhabitant remains a mystery to the rest of the world. This trek offers a Special view of Mt. Everest from the closet point Kalapathar (5545 m). Many expedition teams can be observed from this trekking trail.

After early breakfast, we depart from Kathmandu via airplane for Lukla (2840 m). The flight takes about 35 minutes to reach Lukla airport from Kathmandu. The Lukla flight is one of the most dramatic short distance flights in the world. The Lukla Airport is located on a hill and consists of a single runway that drops off towards its end to the deep gaping valley below. Surrounded by tall mountains and jaded hills, the airstrip at Lukla is quite fascinating and the flight is a thrilling adventure in itself. Upon arrival at Lukla, the changes are immediately felt. The mountainous landscape becomes quite prominent and the air carries a crisp freshness to it, which only Himalayan atmosphere carries. From Lukla, the trekking trail slowly moves towards the Cheplung Village. View of the sacred Mount Khumbila from the village at Cheplung is gorgeous. From there, a gradual walk downwards leads to the village of Phakding. The terrain is amazing and tall hills surround the trail like giant mounds of emeralds. From Phakding, the sight of the Kusum Kangraru Mountain can be seen. The village of Phakding lies in the Dudh Koshi River valley north of Lukla and contains many guesthouses and lodges for the service of tourists and trekkers.
Overnight at Guesthouse.Note: The weather in Lukla is very unpredictable. Sometimes due to bad weather the flight may be delayed or cancelled. If the flight is cancelled, you will have to return back to the hotel in Kathmandu. The transportation back to the hotel and accommodation on this night is not included. If the weather is clear next day, you will get either 3rd or 4th flight to Lukla. If still the weather is not clear, there will be an option for helicopter flight also. The cost for helicopter flight is not fixed. It will be quoted by the airlines on the same day. You will have to pay additional approx. 150 USD for the helicopter flight from KTM to Lukla. Although this problem is rare, it is our duty to let you know in advance
After breakfast at Phakding, the trail further opens out to reach the celebrated mountain town of Namche Bazaar. On route to Namche, several smaller villages are crossed, like Jorsale and Monjo. Monjo lies north of Phakding and is the entry point of the Sagarmatha National Park. The trail ventures through the national park and finally arrives at Namche. Walking along the trekking route through the Sagarmatha National Park presents many virtues, like its alpine woods, small rivers and brooks and deciduous forests. Thick acreages of Pine and Cedar cover the lands and provide a pleasant atmosphere to trek through. Namche Bazaar, because of its strategic location, is the commercial hub of the Khumbu region. It is located on a mountain side and views of the Thamserku Peak and the Kongdi RI Himal from here are amazing.

We will start our trek to Lobuche Peak Base Camp from Lobuche early in the morning after having breakfast. The trails pass through rocky and rugged terrains and these harsh and challenging trails will test you completely.

We then cross the famous Lobuche glacier from where we can observe the breathtaking views of Mt. Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Thamserku, Kantega, and other mountains. After trekking for around 5 to 6 hours, we will arrive at Lobuche Base Camp. We will spend the night at a tented camp in the Lobuche Base Camp

After having an early morning breakfast, we will leave the base camp and follow a narrow, snow-covered and icy trail. We then use ropes and crampons during our trek today. As the trail can get quite taxing, you should rest well and restore energy.

We will arrive at a good campsite at 5400 meters, and our Sherpa crew will set up the camp. They will also check your climbing gears and health conditions before climbing the summit of Lobuche Peak. We will spend the night at a tented camp in High Camp.

The day of climbing the summit of Lobuche East peak is upon us. We start the climb at around 2 am so that we arrive at the peak by noon. There are strong winds that make the climb challenging in the afternoon. The path is rocky initially for about 5600m. We cross the ice-covered surface using ropes and crampons.

Moreover, the panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Cholatse, and others from the summit will enchant you. After spending some quality time and taking incredible pictures, we descend back to base camp. We will spend the night at a tented camp in the base camp.

We will start our trek back from our destination from Lobuche Base Camp. We pass through the trail that coincides with the Everest Base Camp. After having lunch at Lobuche, we pass through the settlement of Pheriche that finally leads us to Pangboche.

We then pass through the subalpine forests of rhododendron and juniper trees in the region to arrive at Pangboche. We spend the night at a teahouse in Pangboche.

From Pheriche we descend along the glacier river and follow the village of Orso. Then we follow the west bank from Imja Khola to Somare. The following path leads to Pangboche and down to Imja Khola before we ascend to Debuche, from where we make a short climb to the summit of Tengboche through dense rhododendron forest. On the way from Tengboche it goes downhill to Phunki Thenga (3,250 m) and over a ridge to Sanasa, from where the path for today’s accommodation with a hot shower leads somewhat easier to Namche. Namche is the perfect place to celebrate the triumph and achievement of the hike.
