Climb Loboche Peak with Berg Adventures Fall 2011

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Stand atop the glaciated peak of Loboche at 20,076ft/6119m for a uniquely rewarding 360 degree view of the Himalayas. From the stunning base camp site to the snowy summit ridge, Loboche will keep you both physically challenged and visually delighted. Offering spectacular views from the summit of famed peaks such as Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, Pumori and, of course, Everest, the Loboche climb is perfect for adventure travelers looking to gain climbing experience in the Himalayas.

The view of Everest from the top

Your adventure begins with a trek to Everest Base Camp and climb of Kala Patar with our regularly scheduled Everest Base Camp Trek. You will arrive in the bustling city of Kathmandu where you will have a few days to pick up souvenirs, tour the city’s many religious and historic sites and browse the outdoor stores for any last minute climbing gear needs. From there you fly to the village of Lukla – the gateway to Everest’s Khumbu Valley. The quiet and slow-paced life of the Khumbu will feel like a different world, especially in comparison to the hectic city life of Kathmandu. There are no road and no cars in the Khumbu – just trails, yaks and your own two feet.

After a visit to Everest Base Camp and a climb of Kala Patar, you will continue on to Loboche Base Camp where your climb begins. Basic mountaineering skills are recommended, but not required for this climb.
