As per Nepal Mountaineering Association(NMA), Lobuche East is a trekking peak, and Lobuche West peak is an expedition peak. The Lobuche West is complex and more technical than Lobuche East.

The peak is one of the most challenging trekking peaks in the country. Compared to other similar climbs, Lobuche East is tricky. There are some technical testing sections. So it's the first choice for those wanting to climb a difficult trekking peak.

After Namche Bazaar, we’ll move ahead in our trek towards Tengboche, a place known for the Tengboche Monastery. We’ll call it a day in Tengboche after a lovely trekking day full of mountain views.

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty Level

This journey to the foothill of Mt Everest and the top of Lobuche East is neither easy nor hard. It mainly depends on what sort of experience and preparation you have for this trip. If you are prepared well, this journey is not a hard one.

Firstly, you will trek through the Everest Region for 8-9 days to reach Everest Base Camp. During this trek, you have challenges such as longer trekking hours, steep uphills, rough routes, high elevations, etc. Every day will bring 5-6 hours of a trek on an uphill cum downhill trail. As you reach higher heights, you’ll trek on a rough road. You’ll deal with these sorts of difficulties throughout the trip.

The real hardship starts when you climb Lobuche East from Lobuche Base Camp. You’ll have a steep, rocky, and rugged landscape to climb. Therefore, it will need a robust physical endurance level. Alongside, you’ll be staying at the campsites during the climbing days. 

Comparatively, the climb from base camp to high camp is just an uphill climb. All you have to do is take your body through the rough path. The real examination is on the summit day. You have to trek on a slippery and steep iced pathway. All of the climbing things and your skill will come into use here. 

Right before the summit, you will climb a 45-degree snow wall. Next, you will use fixed lines to climb the step wall. Once you mount this part, you’re on the top of Lobuche East. That’s the most technical section of the entire climb. Except for this, the Lobuche East is a comfortable climb for the well-prepared climbers.

In sum, the significant challenges of this expedition are altitude, steep & rough trails, and the technical section of the climb. Do not worry. We are here to guide you to the top. If you are prepared well and get the assistance of our experienced Sherpas, it will be a fun climb. Do not forget that Lobuche East is just a trekking peak.            

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek Preparation

Lobuche East is a trekking peak, so it doesn't require prior climbing experience. However, it would help if you were physically and mentally ready for this expedition. 

First of all, you should have sound health. If you have any serious medical condition, this journey is not for you. It is a challenging trip, and it may turn worse for you if you are not healthy. Therefore, make sure you are fit to climb a mountain.

Likewise, you should have a robust physical stamina level. Cardio training such as day hiking, jogging, swimming, running, and cycling are good starting options. Doing these sorts of exercises regularly will help you build a firm physique. And they will prepare you for the expedition's rugged and steep climbs. Do not forget that you must trek for 5-6 hours every day on the trip. So get your physique ready for that. 

A muscular physique is not enough when you are doing a challenging expedition. It is equally important to have a mentality that does not give up. A strong and positive mentality can overcome any challenge. Thus, get yourself mentally ready too. 

Also, basic mountaineering knowledge is a must for Lobuche East Climbing. The climb of Lobuche east has some technical sections for which you need to have some mountaineering skills. You have to use ropes, axes, and crampons on the expedition. Hence, attend a mountaineering course before the trip if you are a newbie.

So these are some ways to prepare for the Lobuche Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek.      

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek Best Time

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is possible all year round. We have seen people around the globe doing climbs in all seasons.

However, mountaineering is safe when the weather is sound and static. On the other hand, if the weather is not ideal, the mountains' adventure can become a disaster. Hence, it is essential to know about the right time.

Autumn and Spring are two good seasons for Lobuche East and the EBC Trek expedition. Autumn(September-November) is a good time for mountain expeditions. During this season, the weather is stable and calm, the temperature is all right, and the skies are clear. The chances of weather disturbance are also meager. Plus, Autumn brings the biggest festivals of the locals, Dashain, Tihar, and Chaat. The season gets even better with the celebration. Thus, Autumn is the time. 

Spring(March-May) is another perfect time for climbing and trekking in Nepal. This season delivers greenery and colorful flowers everywhere around Nepal. The weather is also quite typical. Clear mountain visibility, warm temperature, and cloudless skies are routine this season. Due to all these good factors, many climbers book expeditions during Spring. Like in Autumn, you can see many people around the trails to the mountains in Nepal during this season.

On the other hand, the expedition is also possible during Winter(December-February) and Monsoon(June-August). But the conditions in these two seasons are not as excellent as in the other two. Winter is a cold season and a time of heavy snowfall in the Himalayas. Likewise, Monsoon is about rainfall, dark clouds, and leeches. Therefore, you have to do extra challenges during these two seasons. Thus, only risk lovers pick Winter and Monsoon.

To sum this up, you can do the outing all year round. If you are looking for stable weather, Autumn and Spring are great. Monsoon and Winter are also good if you are looking for some adventures.      

Food in Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek will have three meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. While you are trekking, you will eat meals at various teahouses. The lodges serve typical meals such as pizza, noodles, dumplings, sandwiches, Dal Bhat, Porridges, bakery items, coffee, tea, etc. The drinking water is also readily available during the trekking days. 

 

However, you will have limited meal options during the climb. This is because the kitchen staff for the expedition will cook food throughout the climbing days. So this is how food will be arranged during the journey. 

Accommodation

Lobuche East Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is a teahouse cum camped tent trek. You will get reasonable accommodation during the trekking days. There are plenty of basic to good lodges throughout the trekking route. The rooms are double sharing with two beds. You will get enough blankets for the bed. In contrast, the attached bathrooms are not guaranteed everywhere. 

However, as you leave the trekking route and start Lobuche East climbing, you will be accommodated in a tented camp. The sleeping bag will be a gem during the climbing days. So this is what sort of accommodation will be organized during this voyage.
