Everest Base Camp – Lobuche East Peak Climbing
2100

Overview

Nepal: home of the world’s highest mountain, serene lakes, and pleasant land. Every bit of it, from magical landscapes to gently rolling hills and deep gorges, every bit of it is terrific and more than to anyone’s imagination. It’s a safe haven for hikers with unlimited trek destinations, which overflows with sheer natural beauty.

One of such hiking spots and the most popular one is Everest Base Camp Trek with Lobuche East Peak Climbing. Its intrinsic appeal with a quieter atmosphere and significant landmarks has made the trek a real deal.

The charm and magnificence of the base camp with Lobuche are unfathomable and enough to draw trekkers from worldwide. Its unrivaled natural beauty with diverse landscapes and geographical features can put any visitor in awe.

But, that’s not just the landforms; even the culture and history of people living in the Himalayas has trekkers amazed. The centuries-old monasteries and Tibetan chortens have persuaded them to know about the religion and heritage of different ethnic groups but mostly Sherpa.

Trekkers of Everest Base Camp with Lobuche East Peak Climbing start their trip with a direct flight from Kathmandu. However, the real journey begins only after arriving at Lukla, the gateway to Everest.

The hike from Lukla to Everest Base Camp is just 62 km long, but even in this short distance, trekkers will be passing through several villages, crossing rivers, and walking steep hills and valleys. They’ll be making their way through many remote settlements, including Namche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep.

The trail then has us climbing the stone stairs and trekking above the river valley, which is stressful. Fortunately, it also offers some spectacular views of snow-capped mountains, gushing waterfalls, and vibrant valleys, which provide great relief.

The base camp doesn’t keep itself too far from this, providing the heart-warming view of glacial lakes, Khumbu Glacier, and rocky moraines. Sitting right under the foot of Khumbu Icefall, Everest Base camp also gives a close look at Mt. Everest and its surrounding mountains, including Nuptse and Cho Oyu.

From base camp, the trail moves to Lobuche Base Camp and to the summit at 6,119 meters. It walks over the snowy ridge and through the glaciers to arrive at the summit, which offers stunning glimpses of Mt. Everest and Khumbu Valley.

After the sighting, the trail descends back to the base camp and slowly moves to Lukla in another 3-4 days. The course ending at Lukla is mostly downward and makes its way from the valley and through the old villages.

Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive to Kathmandu (1400m approx.)
As decided, we’ll pick you straight from the airport on this day. Our staff will show up at the terminal shortly before the flight arrives. After a brief introduction with a meet-and-greet, they’ll transfer you back to your hotel. Since you must be jet-lagged, have some rest, and we’ll meet in the evening for a pre-trek briefing.

If there’s any equipment or gear you think is missing, this is the time to get it. There are many shops in Thamel which help mountain trekkers find the item at a super affordable price.
Day 2
Kathamndu sightseeing tour prepare the permit.
Since you have an entire day left before the trek, we’ll take you on a day trip to Kathmandu City. We’ll go for the big prize and visit Kathmandu Durbar Square in the late morning. Since it’s one of the most renowned historical sites in Nepal, you can expect to see a lot of impressive Newari architecture, wooden crafts, stone idols, and statues.

Visitors can discover a series of ancient temples and religious shrines, both Hindus and Buddhists. The greatly structured Kathmandu Durbar Square also boasts former royal palaces, courtyards, and ponds.

After the exploration is done, we’ll drive to Sawaymbhunath Stupa, which is located in the west of the city. Away from the crowd, it sits at a hilltop overlooking the beautiful Kathmandu Valley. Visitors will have to take plenty of stone stairs to reach the summit and visit the shrine.

Local devotees often visit the gompa, spin prayer wheels, and utter chants. They also enjoy the breathtaking view and quiet atmosphere that Swayambhu stupa has to offer. So, after taking a short tour of the religious shrine we’ll move to our next destination, Boudhanath Stupa.

It’s a beautiful but slightly crowded Buddhist pilgrimage with many small chortens, prayer wheels, and colorful flags. There’s a central dome with surrounding monasteries in the stupa, where thousands of pilgrims visit each day. Visitors can hear the hymn from Tibetan monks and scent the incense sticks.

Next, we’ll pay a visit to Pashupatinath Temple, which is just 15 minutes away from Boudhanath. It’s one of the sacred Hindu temples with countless small and big temples within. The main temple is built in pagoda style and has Shivalinga inside it. You can see a lot of colorful artwork and architecture in the temple. With that, we’ll call it off a day and drive back to the hotel.
Day 3
Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding.(2,620m).
Phakding Altitude: 2,880 meters

Walking Hours: 3-4 hrs

Overnight at: a lodge

Since the morning weather is great, we’ll fly to Lukla on the first sunrise of the day. We’ll hop on the flight at Tribhuvan International Airport, which takes about half an hour to reach Lukla town. The journey comes with a stunning view of snow-capped mountains, rolling hills, and rural villages. Soon after landing in the town, we’ll have our breakfast in the nearby teahouse.

After loosening up, we’ll trek to Phakding, which is 6.2 km away. The journey starts from Chaurikharka village with a descent to Dudh Koshi Ghat. The trail takes a gentle climb up the hill alongside Dudh Koshi River, leading us to Phakding. We’ll spend the night in a lodge.
Day 4
Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,445m).
Namche Bazaar Altitude: 3,440 meters

Walking Hours: 5-6 hours

Overnight at: a tea house

After breakfast, we’ll continue our hike following the Dudh Koshi River. Next, we’ll use a suspension bridge to cross the river and pass through several villages like Manjo, which brings us to Sagarmatha National Park.

After getting the permits checked, we moved to Namche Bazaar. On the way, we’ll use suspension bridges as often as not. On the far side of Dudh Koshi River, the trail descends to Jorsale, where visitors stock goods.

The last couple of hours before getting to Namche is quite difficult with a steep and rough course. After walking uphill continuously for about an hour or so, we’ll reach Namche Bazaar. The village is the most common stop for trekkers on the main EBC trail. It has many lodges and tea houses to accommodate the guests and provide them with lodging for the night.
Day 5
Namche Bazaar acclimatization day.
Since the weather and temperature above Namche are inconsistent, we’ll spend a day in the town to prevent altitude sickness. The idea behind acclimatization is to help the body adjust to the temperature at a higher altitude.

To make the most of time, we’ll walk up to Hotel Everest View, which is a popular sightseeing spot. It takes about an hour or two before we can finally get the perfect Mt. Everest snap. The view of surrounding mountains such as Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Nuptse are equally breathtaking.

After the sightseeing, we’ll have breakfast at the hotel then climb down the trail back to the village. Some trekkers even visit Khumjung Village along Syangboche but we'll return from there. Overnight stay in the same tea house.
Day 6
Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3,870m).
Tengboche Altitude: 3,860 meters

Walking Hours: 5-6 hrs

Overnight at: a tea house

A few minutes walk out of Namche and we’re back on the trail, heading towards Tengboche. It’s a 9.2 km walk to the village with several ups and downs but mostly over. After walking the ground level for around 20 minutes, the trek gets easy until crossing the river.

From there, we’ll have to climb uphill for almost two hours, which can be exhausting. Along the way, there is a small tea house where we’ll stop and have lunch before making the final push for Tengboche.

Due to the altitude gain, the last section of the course gets pretty tough. As a result, we’ll go slow and steady on the trail. Finally, after a 5-6 hours of trek, we’ll arrive at Tengboche at 12,660 ft. The village provides a splendid view of beautiful gorges, verdant hills, and the Imja River. Tonight, we’ll stay in a tea house.
Day 7
Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360m).
Dingboche Altitude: 4,260 meters

Walking Hours: 6-7 hrs

Overnight at: a tea house

Early in the morning, we’ll visit Tengboche Monastery to offer our prayers and take a quick tour of the stupa. After that, we’ll set off on the journey to Dingboche, walking through the valley of Imja and Chhukhung. The trail gently slopes downward and crosses the river before walking from the edge of the river valley.

We spend most of the day climbing uphill, which comes with a stunning view of surrounding mountains and dense forests. After a final walk on the meadow, we’ll reach the charming village of Dingboche. It is our last stop of the day and a dwelling for the night.
Day 8
Day Trip to Nagarjun (5000m) and back to Dingboche.
After some serious hike to Dingboche, a day of rest is well-deserved. So instead of hiking the trail, we’ll stay back at the village and relax. To make the day productive and acclimatize, we’ll go on a trip to Nagarjun.

The whole idea of acclimatization is to walk higher and sleep lower. So after having breakfast, we’ll leave for the trek to Nagarjuna Peak. To start, we’ll ascend steep hills with rocks and boulders which makes the trek a bit difficult.

After hiking for a good 2-3 hours, we’ll finally get to Nagarjun, one of the major tourist attractions in the Sherpa Valley. It comes with a magnificent view of lofty mountains, steep-sided valleys, and rocky hills. Down the peak is a small settlement, mostly lodges and guest houses to accommodate hikers.

After the sightseeing, we’ll get back to the trail and walk the way down to the village. On the way back, we can see lots of ancient Tibetan monasteries and Chortens, which look stunning. Overnight stay in the tea house.
Day 9
Trek to Lobuche (4,950m)
Lobuche Altitude: 4,930 meters

Walking Hours: 5-6 hours

Overnight at: a tea house

After a lovely day at Dingboche, it’s time for us to leave the village and head towards Lobuche. The day starts with a steep climb up the hill, which provides a stunning view of Chukhung Valley and Island Peak. With the flat terrains to walk, the trek gets a little easier from here.

Most of today’s walk is level ground. There are only a few settlements on the way to Lobuche, where trekkers can stop and have food. After a few more hours of trekking, we’ll finally get to the beautiful village of Lobuche. It’s the last overnight stop for us before climbing the base camp.
Day 10
Trek to Gorakshep (5160m) and Hike to EBC (5,545m)
Gorakshep Altitude: 5,164 meters

Everest Base Camp Altitude: 5,364 meters

Walking Hours: 6-8 hrs

Overnight at: a tea house

The hike to Gorakshep from Lobuche is a little over 4.5 km, which doesn’t seem much. But, due to the high altitude and rough terrains, it’ll take us nearly 3-4 hours to get there. There isn’t a well-marked path on this section, so we’ll have to walk over the loose rocks to get to the settlement.

After reaching the hamlet, we’ll take a short lunch break and gather some strength. After a few times, we’ll embark on the journey from rocky dunes and glacial moraines. Climbing up the steep hills and jagged trails with debris for another three hours, we’ll finally reach the base of Everest Base Camp.

Upon arrival, you’ll get an impressive snap of Mt. Everest along with Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Cho Oyu. The unique landscapes and geographical features with giant rock hills will also be flickering in front of your eyes.

During the time at the base camp, you can witness the beautiful Khumbu Glacier and serene lakes, which look fabulous. After spending a wonderful time at the Everest Base Camp, we’ll retrace the step back to Gorakshep, following the same path. Overnight stay is in a tea house.
Day 11
Climb Kalapathar (5400m) and Trek Down to Lobuche east base camp.
Kala Patthar Altitude: 5,644 meters

Lobuche East Base Camp Altitude: 4,950 meters

Walking Hours: 6-7 hrs

Overnight at: a tent

At the crack of dawn, we’ll leave for a trek to Kala Patthar, which takes about 2-3 hours. It’s a straight uphill climb to the rocky mountain filled with large rocks and boulders. After reaching the summit, we’ll get to sight Mt. Everest, Changtse, and Nuptse.

While in the acme, we also get a peek at the northern flank of Lhotse. The sunrise view from Kala Patthar is no less surprising and looks magical. After enjoying the view, we’ll get down the hill and return to Gorakshep.

After having breakfast, we’ll be heading downwards to the Lobuche Base Camp at 16,000 ft. Since the trek is a bit difficult, we start early by following the jagged trail, inclining upward and crossing the Lobuche Glacier.

As the trail rises upward, glimpses of Thamserku and Cholatse start to turn up, which looks fabulous. After trekking the mountainous terrains for somewhere between 5-6 hours, we’ll reach the base camp. After we arrive at the camp, our crew member will put up the tent for us to spend the night.
Day 12
Base camp to Lobuche high camp.
Lobuche High Camp Altitude: 5,400 meters

Walking Hours: 3-4 hours

Overnight at: a tent

Since the trail to Lobuche high camp is rough with ups and downs, we’ll start trekking early today. From the base camp, we gently ascend the trail up to Lobuche High Camp. The trail is steep and continuously upward, which makes it rather difficult to hike.

We have to navigate the rugged path and navigate a narrow lane covered with snow to reach the high camp. Since the trails heading upward are snowy, we’ll use crampons to get a better grip.

After ascending the ice cliff with the help of an ice axe and traveling the jagged trail, we’ll get to the Lobuche High Camp at 5,400 meters. To save energy for the next day, we’ll wrap up the trek here and spend the night at the camp.
Day 13
High camp to Summit and back to base camp then continue to Pheriche.
Lobuche Altitude: 6,119 meters

Walking Hours: 8-9 hrs

Overnight at: a tea house

Trek to the summit is incredibly tough and challenging with lots of technical difficulties. It’s long and full of difficulties, so we’ll have to begin climbing the mountain before dawn. We’ll begin it by ascending the snowy trail and glacier using an ice axe and rope.

Following our guide, we’ll march upward and make the way through the ridge. After inclining steep trails for around 4 hours, we’ll finally reach the summit. Upon reaching the crest, we’ll get the sight of amazing Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Thamserku, and Kantega.

We’ll also be sighting the beautiful landscapes and glaciers from the top. After the quick sightseeing, we’ll climb down the mountain back to base camp and then Pheriche. The trail is long but downhill, so it gets easier. We’ll be treated to the magnificent view of glistening snow peaks and towering hills on our way down to the village. Tonight we’ll stay in a tea house.
Day 14
Pheriche to Namche Bazar.
After breakfast, we’ll descend the trail from the hillside surrounded by rhododendron forests. Several times, we’ll cross the Dudh Koshi River and walk through the woods. While climbing down the hill, we’ll keep a watchful eye for the wildlife such as Thar, snow leopard, and musk deer.

After a steady downhill walk for an hour or more, we’ll arrive at the beautiful Namche Bazaar. Wrapping another day of Everest Base Camp Trek with Lobuche East Peak Climbing, we’ll head towards our lodge.
Day 15
Trek down to Lukla
From Namche, we descend the trail back to where it all started, Lukla. However, this time we’ll have a slightly better time, especially with the leisurely walk and gorgeous view. Following the trail, we climb down the Dudh Koshi River Valley, which rises above Lukla from the Kusume stream.

The path becomes steeper as we move towards the west, which leads us to the main trail. From Toktok, we keep trekking further on an unpaved trail that ends at Lukla. We’ll spend the night in a lodge in the Sherpa town.
Day 16
Lukla to Kathmandu.
Bidding farewell to Lukla and its mind-blowing scenic view, we take the flight back to Kathmandu. The trip will last about half an hour and comes with a marvelous view of rolling hills, flowing waterfalls, streams, and a charming little town. As soon as the flight lands at Tribhuvan Airport, our officials will drive you to the hotel where you can rest.
Day 17
Final Departure to home.
On this day, our representative will transfer you to the airport right on time, so that you do not miss the flight.

Best time for Everest Base Camp and Lobuche East Peak Trek

Himalayan weather is unpredictable, varying from crisp and warm right through to stormy and cold. Winter days are frosty in the base camp, while summers experience bright and sunny days. The weather in spring and autumn is balmy and warm. It has a pleasant atmosphere with beautiful surroundings, which is delightful to watch. The longer days of Spring allow trekkers to travel at their own pace and explore far too many places.

Spring Season

Spring in the base camp isn’t quiet, but it sure is refreshing with a warm and temperate climate. Visitors can expect sunny days with wintry nights in the season. The early months of Spring even witness light snowfall with freezing temperature, which is a bit too much for trekkers to handle.

The weather starts to get better from the end of March. Temperatures are also rising around this time, with an average temperature between 10-15 Degree Celsius. With a mild temperature, the season makes it an ideal time for taking long walks.

Its cool and fresh wind helps hikers a lot on the trail. Besides, it provides trekkers with a view of gleaming snow-capped mountains, rolling hills, and landscapes. Adding more to the beauty of the Spring season is flower-filled forests with green terrace farms and full-bloomed rhododendron.

Autumn Season

Somehow, Autumn has similar weather as that of Spring. It has a temperate climate, which is influenced by elevation and setting. Warm days and cold nights characterize the weather of Autumn. The climate is cool, sunny, and bright down in the valley, but it’s harsh and unfriendly in the mountains.

Weather in high altitudes is generally cold and shivering. The days are still fine, but the nights are unbearably cold and severe, with the temperature dropping gradually. The average temperature in Autumn ranges from 5 to 7 Degree Celsius at night, whereas the daytime temperature rises to an average high between 18 and 24 Degree Celsius.

Autumn is at its peak in October with mild weather, clear sky, and spectacular views. It gets comfortable to walk the trail around this time as they are moist and shady. There might be little rain at the beginning of the season, but by the end of March, the weather becomes warm.

The season is perfect for outdoor activities as the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. Forest along the trails in Khumbu brims with fall colors and patches of green in October. Crystal-clear days after the monsoon helps to catch the stunning view of Mt. Everest, Thamserku, and Lobuche.

Off-Season

Trekkers Everest Base Camp with Lobuche East Peak isn’t a great idea in the off-season. It’s probably why most trekkers avoid climbing the mountain in Monsoon and Winter. They have adverse weather conditions which don’t favor outdoor recreation.

The weather is relatively consistent in December, but it gets intense from January, with the temperature falling up to -6 Degrees Celsius. It’s even colder at Lobuche, with an average low temperature of -18 Degree Celsius.

The region typically sees heavy snowfall and blizzards in Winter. Trails are covered in snow, which is fascinating to watch but difficult to navigate. They are slippery, wet, and cause frostbite, which is a serious matter of concern. On the bright side, it provides a breathtaking view of frozen lakes, sheer glaciers and snow-covered mountains.

Monsoon weather doesn’t help the trekkers either. The continuous downpour and wind storm make the journey even more challenging and demanding. Temperature between June and September ranges from -5 to 22 Degree Celsius.

The drizzling rain isn’t always bad as it clears the sky and improves visibility. Trekkers will be able to catch the lovely view of surrounding mountains, towering hills, diverse landscapes, and valleys.

Difficulties of Everest Base Camp Trek with Lobuche East Peak Climbing

Everest Base Camp may seem like an easy walk with a moderate hiking trail. But with the Lobuche East Peak Climbing together, the trek is a real challenge. It gives the hikers a tough time by making them traverse steep terrains and over the glacier.

The trail to Everest Base Camp with Lobuche East Peak Climbing has them running along the crest and through the glacial moraine, which is extremely hard. Other than the course, it’s the rising altitude and its adverse effect that trouble hikers. The harsh weather condition of the mountain also adds to the difficulty level of Everest Base Camp Trek.

Altitude Sickness

There is often a risk of developing altitude sickness while trekking at high altitude locations. The low air pressure and lack of oxygen in the air, make it difficult for the hikers to breathe. When ignored, it causes severe problems like nausea, exhaustion, dizziness, and insomnia.

Therefore, trekkers have to acclimatize well before climbing high like Everest Base Camp and Lobuche. They have to adjust their body to the weather and temperature at the higher region to avoid the severe impact.

It can also improve by descending the trail quickly after a high elevation gain. Starting the trek from the lower region like Lukla helps a lot to minimize the risk of altitude sickness. But, trekkers will have to be extremely careful while climbing Lobuche as it rises up to 20,000 ft. They’ll have to prepare well and acclimatize properly to complete the trek without any stress or extreme difficulties.

Weather

The weather at Everest Base Camp varies with season. It has moderate weather in spring and autumn and an extremely harsh climate in Winter. Trekking in the season is incredibly tough, with severe snowstorms, high winds, and whiteouts.

The trails are covered in snow most of the time, making them slippery and wet. With a temperature of minus Degree Celsius, trekkers will be shivering from the cold during the season. They’ll also be struggling with visibility due to the looming fog and thick mist.

Monsoon doesn’t bring relief to the trek either. In fact, the continuous shower and lightning storm only makes the trek difficult and sometimes even leave them straddling on the trail. Therefore, hikers doing Everest Base Camp Trek with Lobuche East Peak Climbing will have to stay updated with the weather forecast to avoid unwanted situations.

If they’re climbing the mountain during these seasons, they better prepare well. Ensure that you carry all the essential equipment like hiking poles, crampons, and so on, which helps in walking the snowy trail and ice slopes.

Long Distance

Trek to Everest Base Camp with Lobuche East Peak Climbing is a multi-day hike. It has a long, never-ending trail that starts and ends in Lukla. On the journey to the town, trekkers will have to walk the rugged trail every day for almost two weeks.

Hikers will have to walk an average of 5-6 hours each day on the main EBC trail. They’ll have to navigate the trek from Lukla, which is approximately 38.5 miles one-way. In addition to that, they’ll also have to ascend Lobuche East Peak, which adds more to the total hiking distance.

Hence, trekkers will have to prepare well before starting the hike. Whether it’s working on their physical fitness or taking a short and long-distance walk, they’ll have to do it all to improve their physical stamina and endurance power. Since they’ll have to navigate the mixed terrains, trekkers will have to maintain stability on the trail.

Frostbite and Foot Pain

It’s quite likely for trekkers to suffer from frostbite and foot pain when hiking on mountainous terrains with glaciers and ice sheets. Walking on such trails can cause severe injuries to the foot. Freezing of skin, discoloration, and numbness are the after-effects of frostbite. Therefore, to stay protected, trekkers will have to wear insulated climbing boots with spikes to stay warm and get traction on the snow. Wearing breathable gaiters under the boot will offer protection against rocks, grit, and rain.
