Our trek towards Lobuche:

Lobuche Peak is one of the popular peaks resting at 6,119 meters from sea level. To climb Lobuche we have to go on Everest and Everest base camp trek  trials. The amazing routes give you the breathtaking views.

1) Our first stop on our trek is Zamfute, a 3-5 hour downhill walk through ancient forests to the lovely Sonam Guesthouse at 2610 m / 8560 ft. During your trek, yaks and porters will carry your luggage, so you don’t have to carry a heavy rucksack. The inn keepers are so friendly and their lovely lodge lies on the banks of the mighty Dudh Khosi River.

2) Next day, we walk along the river through picturesque tiny villages, entering the Everest National Park Gate, and after crossing some fantastic swinging steel cable suspension bridges, we climb the glorious Namche Hill through pine forests, reaching the village of Namche Bazaar at 3440 m / 11,250 ft, the exotic trading capital of the Sherpa people. We will be staying at the lovely Hilltop Lodge with incredible views of all Namche and Mts Numbur and Kwangde.

3)  Today we acclimate in Namche. Lets take a walk to Everest View Hotel for a cup of tea and fine sights of Ama Dablam, and Everest itself. After which, we will head down to Namche town center to sample the many delicious bakeries, cafes, pizza shops, and pubs.

4) Today is a big day, as we walk along the ridges high above the Dudh Khosi, drop into the thickly forested valley of Phungki Thangka, and then climb the big hill up to Tengboche Monastery, a beautiful and sacred working Buddhist Monastery. Finally, we work our way up the Deboche valley to Pangboche Village at 3985 m / 13,050 ft. This was a long day  of walking, so we are very glad to be relaxing at the beautiful Sonam Lodge, with comfortable rooms and the most stunning views of Ama Dablam and Everest.

5) Now our days become shorter as we gain in elevation. Today we only walk for 3-4 hours to the village of Dingboche at 4410 m / 14,450 ft. Dingboche is special as it is a big broad flat village with good agriculture and a perfect location on the Island Peak River. Not surprisingly, Dingboche has many nice bakeries, coffee shops, and lodges.

6) Today is an acclimatization day, so we can have a nice walk up to 5000 metres / 16,400 ft on a pretty grassy ridge that rises above town. Stunning views here of Ama Dablam, Tawoche and many fine peaks.

7) We are getting close now. Today we make a long sweeping trek, stopping for lunch at Dugla Teahouse at 4620m / 15,160 ft over lovely grassy ridges and past amazing alpine lakes into the Cho Valley to set up our Lobuche Peak base camp at 4800 m / 15,740 ft in a gorgeous grassy meadow.

We highly recommend you for the trips to explore the Everest region and experience mountaineering experience.
