Lobuche East Peak Climbing (6,119m/20,062ft) - 20 days

Lobuche East Peak is an exceptional pick for your first Himalayan climb.It is an aesthetic peak with stunning views from its summit. Lobuche peak lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and has two main peaks, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East. The massive Louche East peak stands at  6119m (20,062ft) and is located at latitude of  27°58'08''N and 86°47'05'' E.The cost of a permit is very reasonable and the peak is somewhat secluded allowing for more privacy. You will have a great views of Lhotse Face, Everest, Ama Dablam and many other 6000m peaks in the Khumbu Valley. The standard route is up the South East Ridge, it gained popularity after Mr.  Laurice Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa successfully reached the summit from this route on 25 April 1984 around 13:00 PM. The South and Southeast Ridges form a distinctive rock triangle which extends from the summit to the Khumbu Glacier. Lateral moraineswith stone memorialsmake the ridges easily identifiable from the trek in. This is one of our classic tea house trekswith camping arrangements at base camp and high camps. The best time to climb the rocky peak of Louche is in the spring (April, May) and autumn (September, October, November). Satori Adventures offers Lobuche East 6,119m (20,062ft) peak climbing as a guided climbing trip for groups looking to train for future ascents or groups with minimal experience. Lobuche East peak is more challenging than Island or Mera peak in. So prepare accordingly if you are a previous summiteer of Island or Mera. Lobuche east peak climbing is not only suitable for beginners, some prior experience is required.

Your adventure begins right after you depart Kathmandu, after a 35 minute flight through the spectacular Himalayan range you will land in the historic village of Lukla. The trek to Lobuche peak begins from this village. You will pass through several historic villages including Namche Bazaar, the famous ancient trading post between Nepal and Tibet, Tengboche which is home to a significant Buddhist monastery, Pengboche the highest Sherpa village in the region and Dengboche. During your trek you will have several options for small acclimatization excursions, these excursions will also make for great photo opportunities. A trek up to Gorak Shep village at 5125m is great for acclimatization, or a trek to the satellite peak of Kalapattar at 5540m is another great option and has classic views of Mt. Everest. With these acclimatization qualifications, you will walk back to Lobuche village and trek to the Lobuche East Base Camp which is situated at 5200m. We will allow one dayfor acclimatization here again before we begin the short climbing period.

The climbing route from base camp traverse several different types of terrain. Right out of base camp you will encounter a 2 hour slog along a well outlined trail, this will take you to the first place to put a high camp, right alongside a hidden lake at approximately 5030m is a beautiful area that makes for a great high camp. From the high camp the route continues up a series of slabs that increases in steepness until finally giving way to the South East Ridge proper. These slabs are usually ice/snow covered so care is needed, at this point is when our professional climbing Sherpa guides will fix the ropes. About 60m from the main ridge the slabs end and you are now faced with a 50 degree snow wall to ascend onto the ridge. The start of the ridge is at approximately 5700m and for the more adventurous this is also a possible site for a second high camp to make the summit day a little easier, only 5% of the climbers require this camp and it is not suggested for stronger climbers. Follow the summit ridge around seracs andvarious “lumps and bumps” toward the summit. There are no real difficulties although there is a feeling of some exposure along the way. Between the false and the true summit there is a considerable descent (arund 200ft) which you may need to rappel down.

Satori Adventures is an international organization which can facilitate appropriate adventures for your colleges, friends and families. We advise clients to contact us with nay questions or comments before committing to buying your flight tickets. Satori Adventures always wants our clients to have a clear idea of what their trip will entail and where their money os going.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time.  We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip. You are always advised to visit our website and related package for further information.
