The Lobuche East (6119m) and the Lobuche West (6,145m) are two distinct summits of the Lobuche peak. Although the two summits are connected by a ridge there is a considerable gap between them. The rocky East face of Lobuche rises high above the moraines of the Khumbu glacier and can be best seen from Pheriche.
Our trek starts from Lukla as we follow the Dudh Koshi river and make our way to the villages of Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche and Lobuche. From Lobuche we trek to Gorak Shep. Gorak Shep, is the Base Camp of the historical 1953’ Everest Expedition and the site where Peace Nepal Treks had successfully organised the 2009’ Everest Cricket Match. Our ascension of the Kala Pathar (5,400m) in between our trek makes our journey even more fascinating and thrilling at the same time. A day’s stay at Gorak Shep around the base camp gives us ample photographic opportunities to capture the mesmerizing beauty of Mount Everest, the Khumbu Ice Fall and the Lhotse, Nuptse and Pumori peaks.
We make our return journey through Pheriche and Tengboche where the grand Tengboche monastery basks in the solitude of the beautifully scenic valley. Our trek leads us back to Lukla on the nineteenth day, where our flight to Kathmandu marks the end of the trek.
