Lobuche East is one of the most popular “trekking peaks” in Nepal. Located conveniently next to the path to Everest Base Camp, Lobuche east is attempted by trekking groups who come to see the spectacular view of Mt. Everest and the Khumbu valley from its summit, as well as by serious 8000m mountaineers who use the peak for its acclimatization and practice benefits. The climb is relatively straight forward with few technical hurdles. Base Camp and high Camp both have ample space and reliable sources of water, allowing the climber to enjoy the mountain without worrying too much about the logistics.
Good To Know
Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 41 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
