Lobuche East Peak and Island Peak Climbing - 24 Nights/ 25 Days

Full Board Trip Cost:  USD 2780 per person       Group Size: From 2 - 6 Persons

The Lobuche or Lobuje Mountain consists of two different summits, viz. East and West with heights of 6,119 m and 6,145 m respectively. A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The East Peak is recognized as a trekking peak, whereas the West is known as an Expedition Peak. Lobuche being an attractive mountain offers various existing routes and also a potential for new ones. The dark triangle of its rocky East face rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. Descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top reach the peak of Lobuche East. On most occasions, the mountain is climbed on the summit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, south–east of the true peak and before the notch. This peak is identified as the false peak. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuche East on 25 April 1984 although there are possibilities that others have reached the summit before. But no records are available.

Lobuche East Peak and Island Peak ClimbingThe Island Peak (Imje Tse 6,189m/20,300ft) is located at the heart of Khumbu region which is recognized as a moderate Climbing peak of this area. Island peak climbing can be very useful to the climbers who are planning to go for higher altitude peaks afterwards. Island peak climbing can fulfill the dream of the climbers who are seeking the thrill of adventure and wish to widen their experience towards the peak climbing& expedition. This professionally designed Island peak climbing itinerary takes you to the acclimatization hike to the most popular trekking destination of Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar first for the close up views of Mt. Everest before scaling the pick. Island Peak was the name given to the mountain in 1952 by Eric Shipton’s who thought it to be reminiscent of an island in a sea of ice. It is also known as "Imja Tse" in Nepali Name.The Mountain is an extension of Lhotse Shar, and is located between the Lhotse and Imja glaciers, standing at 6,189m/20,305ft. After a trans Himalayan flight, We start our trekking from Lukla slowly up towards the Dudh Kosi valley, We across a Hilary Suspension bridge and start climbing up gradually towards a big hill to get Namche. We continue trek to Tengboche Pheriche and accommodate at high altitude in Gorekshep. After enjoying with magnificent views of Mt Everest and surrounding peaks, we continue descend to Chhukung to prepare for the ascent of Island Peak. After a day of walking from Chhukung we reach the Island Peak Base Camp to prepare for to attempt the peak. It may take an additional day or two to scale the peak depending on weather conditions. You will endeavor the summit (6,189m/20,305ft) after one night at the High Camp perched on the South West Ridge where magnificent vistas of the Khumbu can be seen from the top. For some people reaching to the summit from the base camp is a day activity. However, most of the climbers prefer alpine style camping at high camp which adds the joy of climbing and also helps a safe ascent. After a successful climbing, our trip comes back to Lukla and end after flying out from Lukla to Kathmandu in morning.

Mountain Sherpa is the best travel company i’ve travelled with...

Dear pasang thank so Much for your wonderful service
“Dear Pasang,
it is easy to characterize your services: You and your team did an excellent job! Booking via internet is - especially for trekking in Nepal -a big challenge. So many agencies, so many itineraries, so many mountains, so much choice. I found your agency by chance, and my first experiences were brilliant: Very fast response time for answering all my emails, including detailed answers for all my questions. Even when I made a proposal for a change of the itinerary (I added Lobuche peak) you did all your best to realize my plans. During the trek days went by and it seemed that you even made a deal with the Nepalese weather god - perfect conditions for three weeks in a row, so it was easy to reach all my goals together with your excellent sherpa Tendi: the summits of two 6000 meter peaks: Island Peak and Lobuche Peak. ”
