Tour Details

Lobuche lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and has two main peaks: Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East. At 6,145 meters, Lobuche East is 26 meters higher. Although the Lobuche East climb is a bit more challenging than the Island Peak climb, it is equally rewarding.

Day 4Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m)

After breakfast, you walk through beautiful pine forests and then along the Dudh Koshi River, ending your nature-filled journey at Namche Bazaar. After walking for almost over an hour, you come across the glistening Mt. Thamserku (6,608m) on your right and also experience the serenity of pine, fir, and juniper forests throughout your journey. If the weather is clear, you may even catch a glimpse of Mt. Everest peering over the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge.

Continue walking until you reach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park, Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Mt. Everest, and the main trading center of this region. On that day, you cross five suspension bridges, the last one, also known as the Hillary Bridge, being the highest. It is an uphill walk from Hillary Bridge to Namche Bazaar.

Accommodation: an overnight stay in an available local lodge.

Exploring Phakding

Day 5Acclimatization day

The fifth day of the Lobuche Peak-Everest Base Camp trek is the day set aside for acclimatization. Health experts recommend that you stay active and move around even during the rest of the day instead of being idle. There are a few options set aside for this day. You can either stroll around Namche or rest. Namche Bazaar is also known as the Sherpa Capital.

You can use your time to relax and explore the surrounding places. Trekkers prefer to view the magnificent views of Mount Everest, Thamserku, Amadablam, and other glorious peaks from the Sagarmatha National Park. One can get a chance to observe the shadow of the mountains being projected onto the clouds above and truly appreciate their magnitude. As an energy supplier, one should try salt-butter tea and champa, a kind of barley often consumed by the Sherpas in the region.

Accommodation: an overnight stay in an available local lodge.

Namche Bazaar altitude sickness

Day 6Namche Bazaar to Tengboche Monastery (3860m)

After having breakfast, we will start trekking toward Tengboche. Walking will start with the old but still-used Everest Expedition Trail. The trail is a winding, smooth path that offers a fantastic view of Mount Everest (8,848 m), Thamserku (6,618 m), and Amadablam peak. It stands at 6,856 m, located exactly on the east side of Mt. Everest, and leads you upwards through a thick forest of rhododendron.

There is a high probability that you coincide with the Himalayan flora and fauna. Tengboche is famous for the Buddhist Monastery (where you can attend daily puja) and the viewpoint. After reaching Tengboche, have a good rest at a local lodge.
