EBC and Lobuche Peak Climbing, a moderately challenging endeavor, yet rewarding with amazing views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse and Pumori. The peak is ideal for climbers who want to improve their skills as the path consist of steep slopes of snow and ice which requires effective techniques. Everest Base Camp Trek is a highly recommended route which takes on high viewpoints and passes that acclimatizes for the peak climbing.

The trek starts at Lukla after a short flight of about 40 minutes. We slowly gain elevation passing through Phakding on to Namche Bazaar, a highly facilitated area in the Everest region. After stopping a day here for acclimatization, we move on to Tengboche and to another sherpa village of Dingboche where we stop again for acclimatization. We climb higher to Lobuche and move through Gorak Shep to the Everest Base Camp. After spending a night back in Gorak Shep, we get back through the same route to Kalapathar which bestows breathtaking views of Everest, the best in the journey. Climbing to Kalapathar(5545m) also acclimatizes us for peak climbing. We move back to Lobuche and then head to the Lobuche Base Camp and then to the High camp from where we summit the Lobuche. The climb is strenuous and technical but equally rewarding with magnificent views from the top.
