Lobuche East Climbing is one of the most popular peak climbing experiences which introduces to the world of Himalayan mountaineering. Lobuche has twin summit towers that sit high above the moraine of Khumbu Glacier near Everest Base Camp.
Most of the beginners try Lobuche East (6119m) which is a trekking peak and is more straightforward. The West Peak (20,160 feet) is considered a difficult, technical climbing objective. Even so, the journey to the summit comprises stretches of abstemiously vertical and exposed terrain and is an outstanding challenge for both new and veteran climbers.
From the summit, travelers enjoy a dramatic 360° view of the Himalayas, with five of the fourteen 8,000-meter peaks in the earth. These escapade cartels an ascent of Lobuche Peak with the classic trek to Everest Base Camp. For most trekkers, simply seeing Mount Everest from the base of the Khumbu Icefall is a dream come true. Throughout the spring climbing season, this trip includes one night in Everest Base Camp.
Island Peak Climbing, is another perfect choice among novice climbers who wish to start their climbing adventures with technical peaks and progress to challenging climbs of higher elevations. Popularly known as Imja Tse, the Island was named due to its striking location. It lies in the heart of the Chukhung Valley - like an island on a sea of ice. Island Peak has an extraordinary, highly glaciated west face that increases from the Lhotse Glacier, which is a bit threatening to do, yet the bright views from the summit are surely the right recompense for your efforts.
Island Peak is a challenging climb to its summit above 20,000 feet and needs to be loomed with devotion and respect. Island Reak is an excellent introduction to high-altitude mountaineering and can be looked at as a stepping stone to higher peaks. Island Peak is for those who want to explore the Everest Region, and also want more of a challenge and experience actual mountaineering.
