So it requires enough alpine mountaineering experience and proper climbing skills.

If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we wisely have to postpone the program. Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too.

This is our 3rd trip in Nepal with his agency. We contacted Ammar, the owner of Gokyo Treks & Expedition, and inquiries before we proceed to book Lobuche east peak climbing. He answered all of our questions.

Our Sherpa climbing Guide named Nawang was just amazing. He was a local Sherpa from the Solukhumbu area and has great knowledge especially about technically difficult mountain climbing. We enjoyed our trekking and climbing journey in Everest and we are happy to recommend this company to everyone.
