Lobuche East Climbing provides an excellent introduction to the world of Himalayan mountaineering. Lobuche’s twin summits tower high above the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier near Everest Base Camp. The West Peak (20,160 feet) is considered a difficult, technical climbing objective. Our route ascends the more straightforward East Peak (20,075’), which is considered a trekking peak. Even so, the route to the summit includes stretches of moderately steep and exposed terrain and is a superb challenge for both new and experienced climbers. From the summit, we enjoy a dramatic 360° view of the Himalayas, with five of the planet’s fourteen 8,000-meter peaks visible in the distance. This adventure combines an ascent of Lobuche Peak with the classic trek to Everest Base Camp. For most trekkers, simply seeing Mount Everest from Kala Pattar or from the base of the Khumbu Icefall is a dream come true. Lobuche Peak enriches the experience, offering an ideal objective for new climbers and for veteran mountaineers seeking to expand their high-altitude experience or summit their first Himalayan peak. During the spring climbing season, this expedition includes one night in Everest Base Camp. The itinerary allows ample time for acclimatization to ensure a safe and successful journey.
Island Peak Climbing is a favorite choice among novice climbers who wish to start their climbing adventures with technical peaks and progress to challenging climbs of higher altitudes. Island Peak is also popularly called Imja Tse by the locals and mountaineering community around the world. It was named ‘Island Peak’ primarily due to its striking location. It lies in the heart of the Chukhung valley – like an island on a sea of ice. Island Peak has a remarkable, highly glaciated west face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier, which is a bit tough to do, yet the brilliant views from the summit are surely a fitting reward for your efforts. Island peak is a demanding climb to its summit above 20,000 feet and needs to be approached with dedication and respect. Island Peak is an excellent introduction to high altitude mountaineering and can be looked at as a stepping stone to higher peaks.
