Cleaved into two halves, Lobuche Peak located at 6135 m. height in Khumbu Region separates itself into Lobuche East and Lobuche West, both of which are linked together by the continuing ridge.  

Considered one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal, its southern edge becomes the most tried route for peak climbing.

Trekking Experts from ‘Nepal Environmental Treks’ have formulated 19 days fascinating Lobuche Peak Climbing package which gets triggered with 35minute spectacular flight across mountains to Tenzing- Hillary Airport at Lukla whence the enthralling trekking initiates. Moving forth Phakding to Namche Bazaar clustered with lodges and hotels, we will advance through exotic dispersed settlements of Tengboche and Pheriche to make it to Lobuche. Fluttering the flags at the Lobuche summit, we will be back to Lukla whence a memorial flight back to Kathmandu concludes the hypnotic voyage.

Entering the serene premises of Sagarmatha National Park, crossing the Dudhkoshi River, passing through cedar, oak and pine woods supporting wild lives and apt for bird watching, walking past highland villages and enjoying the scenic views of Nuptse, Pumori, Khumbutse, Annapurna, Ama Dablam, Mount Everest and Lobuche Peaks are the major attractions of the Lobuche Peak Climbing adventure trip.
