The Lobuche East Peak Climbing with EBC is an adventure that takes the climbers through the many Sherpa villages and settlements of the region. Winding through the beautiful landscape of the Khumbu, climbers then reach the peak of the Lobuche East from where the surrounding panorama and the sight of other neighboring peaks of Everest are just phenomenal. The trip is a great way to experience the rich and legendary Sherpa culture of the Himalayan people along with enjoying the trans-Himalayan landscape of the region.

Entering the Sagarmatha National Park- a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, visitors of the region are presented with some of the most beautiful and dainty Himalayan terrains in the world, with glacial peaks towering over deep river valleys and white rivers cutting across the jaded landscape like silver ribbons. All along the journey, the sights and views of the Everest peaks, like the Ama Dablam (6856m), Nuptse (7861m), Lhotse (8414m), Thamserku (6608m) and of course- Mount Everest (8848m) accompany climbers in spectacular fashion.
