As soon as we reach the high camp, our Sherpa crew will set up the camp and make necessary preparations for the successful summit climb. Leaving the high camp, we start early with a vision to reach the summit before noon. The strong winds after midday can create obstacles in reaching the Lobuche Peak Summit. But, with the help and guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we will cross several deep crevasses.

Not only we would also overcome many technical sections to reach the Gokyo Ri Trek with Lobuche Treks & Expedition summit. Once at the top, we are also rewarded with incredible views of Everest, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Lhotse.
