This is a perfect climbing adventure for those who have the desire to climb mountains but hasn’t had the opportunity to try it before. We encourage such people with no climbing experience or for those who wants to refresh their climbing skills and experience. We begin with a spectacular flight to Lukla (2850 m) and begin our adventure in the Khumbu, the home of Everest!

Lobuche Peak climbing consists of two famous routes, the Lobuche East Trek and Lobuche Far East. Among these two, Lobuche East is perfect for you who are interested in trekking while the far east, also called West Lobuche sometimes, is suitable for the expedition.

Trekking through high alpine valleys following the milky white rivers we trek through the beautiful Thame valley towards Tibet. We ascend to the astonishing Pass, Renjo La (5370 m) from where you can have breathtaking views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and the surrounding mountains along with the turquoise Gokyo Lakes. After a couple of nights in Gokyo, we continue to Cho La pass where we will have a high altitude climbing course. There is a beautiful ice wall in the nearby glacier and we will spend a couple of nights here where our instructors will give us a basic climbing course and safety/ rescue instructions.

After a day’s hike from here, we reach Lobuche Peak Base Camp. We spend a couple of days at Base Camp and High Camp for rest and acclimatization and to gain back the strength to tackle the final and real challenge.

Lobuche East (6119 m) is one of the most challenging ‘trekking peaks’ in the Everest region. We plan to ascend the South Ridge to a high snow ramp from where we continue to the summit.

Lobuche East is one of the most popular trekking destinations as it has a giant altitude of 6119 meters and promises the view of the highest peaks in the world.  The trek region consists of many small summits and resting just above the moraines of Khumbu Glacier lies Lobuche East touching the blue skylines that form the south ridge. The trekking routes in the Lobuche East meets the Everest trek that lies to the southern east part of these peaks. Lobuche is also taken as a good warm up for climbers seeking to climb the top of the world, the Everest. From the top of the peak a magnificent panorama of the majestic snow clad Lhotse, Nuptse, Amdablam, Pumori Himalayas gives you the feel of paradise on earth.

The climb can be arduous and challenging and may require some technical skills with the rope and expertise in climbing; it’s hard for the first time climbers as there are steep and icy slopes on the way, which makes the trek challenging and exciting at the same time. So, it is the best for those who are looking for an everlasting trek experience.

You have to take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla in Eastern Nepal to reach the heart of the Khumbu region, Namche bazaar, and after spending a night at Namche Bazaar the trek starts and continues to the fascinating locations Tengboche, Dingboche, and we finally arrive at Everest Base Camp. If we are interested, we can try Cho La Pass trek in the same region.

It is one of the most wonderful and must reach places in Nepal as the exotic beauty of the magnificent peaks rejuvenate your soul and mind and is worth a second-time visit.

Grading

Our grading system for trekking:

There are many different factors that contribute to the difficulty of a particular trip
Our grading are based on various factors such as length of trek and walking day, trail conditions, maximum altitude and average altitude, elevation gain/loss per day, prevailing weather conditions, temperature range, remoteness and general level of comfort.
Although we have tried to make our grading system as clear as possible, it cannot take into account your personal interests, abilities or experience. If you have any questions about the nature of a particular trip or its suitability for you, please contact us at info@hionlifeadventures.com

Grade A: Leisure

These adventure tours are our least demanding trips suitable for people with a basic level of fitness and good health. These trips may involve long drives usually on private transport. Sightseeing trips are conducted on foot. The itinerary may also take you to remote places with basic lodging facilities and may also involve a day or two of hiking. We expect you to carry a small back pack weighing about 4 to 5 kgs.
Recommended preparation: Walking on undulating terrain for an hour, for at least 2-3 months prior to departure.

Grade B: Easy to moderate

These adventures involve trekking between 7 to 10 days in remote areas where facilities are often basic. These trips involve some camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 3 to 6 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined and relatively easy, but it doesn’t mean it will be a walk in the park. In the Himalayas, flat trail are extremely rare sights, so there will be plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 3800m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 400m with perhaps an odd day ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to 0C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade C: Moderate

These treks are slightly more difficult. Our moderate treks are between 11 to 15 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 4 to 7 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined but with plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 4500m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with occasional harder days ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to -5C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade D: Challenging

These adventures are more challenging and remote and with altitudes up to 5600m. Our challenging treks are between 13 to 24 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 5 to 7 hours of walking each day with some days involving crossing a pass with up to 10 hours walking. Generally the trails are well defined, but there will be days which involve climbing steep rocky terrains at high altitudes and crossing icy and rocky glaciers in harsh weather conditions.
The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with a few harder days ascending/ descending about 1000m. The itineraries often include rest days after such big ascents.
Temperatures can get below Zero in the daytime at high altitudes and can fall down to -10C at night.

Recommended preparation: Stamina is essential, as walking days are long. We recommend previous trekking experience, preferably at altitude. Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure. Cycling is recommended. Long day hikes on weekends with a daypack in variable weather conditions is also recommended.
