"Lobuche Peak Climbing - Arduous but Mesmerizing Climbing Peak of Khumbu"

Lobuche Peak Climbing is a technical climbing adventure. It is challenging in comparison to other trekking peaks of Nepal. The most fascinating aspect of climbing Lobuche is the view. In each and every direction the sight to behold is surprisingly stunning. Climbers will feel as if they are surrounded by the mountains. Apart from the mountain vistas, the Khumbu landscape seen from the top is incomparable. 

The itinerary of Lobuche Peak Climbing follows the standard EBC Trek route. The trail has a plethora of scenery to behold and capture in their memory. Climbers get the bonus trip during the climbing expedition in the form of Everest Base Camp. The best time for this peak climbing is after or before the monsoon season in Nepal. 

The height of Lobuche is 6119 but don't get fooled by its mere altitude. It is one of the most challenging trekking peaks. However, with correct guidance, it is doable for novice climbers too. Climbers need to understand the Himalayan weather and culture though. Physical conditions, high altitude knowledge, and perseverance are the few traits a climber must have in order to climb the mountains of Nepal including Lobuche. 

Peak is the pride of Khumbu and offers the mountaineering experience to the climbers.
