Lobuche / EBC Trek Expedition

Exploring Himalayan Heights

5 Reviews

Trip Overview

Embark on an extraordinary adventure with Taktok Brothers as we explore the breathtaking Lobuche Peak, boasting two distinct summits, East and West, standing at 6,119 m and 6,145 m respectively. Connected by a continuous ridge, these peaks present a unique challenge, characterized by a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. While the East Peak is renowned as a trekking summit, the West is recognized as an Expedition Peak. Lobuche’s allure lies not only in its attractive features but also in the myriad of existing routes and the potential for new, thrilling paths. The dark triangle of its rocky East face majestically ascends over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier, creating a striking south ridge.

Our journey extends to the iconic Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek, a life-changing experience that transcends the ordinary trek. More than a mere walk, it is a voyage above the clouds, immersing you in the heart of the Khumbu Valley. This valley is a sought-after destination, attracting global adventurers. The Everest Base Camp serves as the captivating culmination for those yearning to witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak standing tall at 8,848m.

Join Taktok Brothers for an expedition that promises not only the thrill of conquering Lobuche Peak but also the awe-inspiring journey to the legendary Everest Base Camp.
