Trip Overview

Embark on an exhilarating adventure with Taktok Brothers Expeditions to conquer the majestic Lobuche East Peak. This renowned 6000m peak, first summited by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on April 25, 1984, stands as an ideal challenge for aspiring mountaineers.

Key Highlights: Lobuche East Peak offers a perfect blend of acclimatization and skill development for climbers eyeing higher altitudes. Its diverse terrain of ice, snow, and rocks provides ample opportunities for practicing with gears and equipment. Adventure seekers are drawn to this peak, making it a fulfilling choice for those dreaming of mountaineering excellence.

Difficulty Level: Distinguished by a long, deeply notched ridge, Lobuche East Peak presents moderate difficulty, making it an introductory peak to Himalayan Climbing. It is a suitable choice for individuals with good physical fitness and prior experience in high-altitude trekking. Unlike Lobuche West Peak, Lobuche East is more popular and frequently climbed.

Best Season to Climb: The optimal time to conquer Lobuche East Peak is from March to May. During these months, the winds are calm, days are sunny, and temperatures are mild. The trail becomes a picturesque journey with lush green forests, roaring rivers, and uninterrupted views of grand massifs. The lakes sparkle with crystal clear water, and glacial lakes exhibit a mesmerizing turquoise hue. Plan your expedition during Spring, Autumn, or Summer for an enhanced travel experience.

Embark on this unforgettable journey with Taktok Brothers Expeditions and witness the Himalayas in all their glory.

Trip Notes

Trekking and mountain expeditions in the Everest Region are highly dependent on weather conditions. We attempt to schedule our trips at the most favorable time, but in case of extreme scenarios, domestic flights to Lukla may be delayed or canceled. In such cases, please note that expenses for additional days beyond the total itinerary duration will be borne by the client. Taktok Brothers will, however, make necessary arrangements for the accommodation of porters and guides. If you prefer alternative arrangements, such as a helicopter flight to avoid delays, we can organize it at a nominal extra charge.

Additionally, Taktok Brothers will not be liable for any compensation for losses due to missed international flights. However, we will assist in making necessary arrangements to minimize your loss. To avoid missing flights, we recommend maintaining flexible time frames before trip departure and after trip departure.

Please be informed that, as we will be traveling in remote areas with extreme climatic conditions and challenging geography where trails may be distorted, we might need to adjust our itineraries as required. Rest assu

Cost of Expedition

Expedition costs vary based on factors such as group size, royalty and permit costs in different seasons, hotel accommodation category, numbers of Sherpas allocated, equipment, type of arrangement, and package customization. Therefore, we would like to discuss with our clients before providing the cost. Please feel free to contact Taktok Brothers for any information about your selected package.
