Lobuche Peak Climbing

Lobuche Peak Climbing  is one of the adventurous adventure in Nepal. It lies at 6,119 meter height which is located in the Everest region. Nepal’s most popular trekking route, the Lobuche peak has mainly two-ridges. The East Ridge is known as Lobuche east peak with 6,119 meter height. In addition another is the west ridge as Lobuche west peak with 6,114 meter height. It offers an opportunity to have summit from both the sides. However, we have arranged program for the Lobuche east peak summit. It is a dark, rocky and sloppy pinnacle and is situated above Khumbu glacier. The peak consists of several small summits and the true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes to the top from the summit ridge. We follow Everest base camp trek route up to Pheriche and then trek to Dughla.

Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Kathmandu: Arrival day

Day 1: Kathmandu: Arrival day

Welcome to Nepal! You've landed in Kathmandu, the historic capital city. We'll be waiting for you at the airport, and will transfer you to your hotel. Take rest and Bharal Adventure representative will brief you about the further journey.

Day 2: Kathmandu to Lukla, Lukla to Phakding

We’ll be taking the short flight to Lukla, the departure point for our trek. The adventure officially begins as we take off on foot for the four-hour walk to Phakding. The trekking is easy and the ground smooth as we follow the Dudh Koshi River. We'll overnight in Phakding, a major stopping point for Himalayan trekkers going in all directions.

Day 3: Phakding to Namchebazar

Khumbu villages splashed with brightly-colored prayer flags dot the way to Namche Bazaar, the largest habitat of the Sherpa villages. It's a six hour hike today, still trailing the Dudh Koshi, and crossing it periodically over precipitous suspension bridges.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar: Accumulation day

Today's a day is for rest. We believe in gradual acclimatization to prevent altitude sickness, and so today we stop over in Namche Bazaar. The intrepid can opt for a two-hour hike to the famous Everest View, which will help you acclimate and show off some majestic mountain views! By itself, Namche is full of interest. Check out the museum dedicated to Sherpa history and the people's role in helping trekkers - there is a whole exhibit dedicated to Hilary. Do some shopping, and meet the locals.

Day 05: Namche Bazaar to Dole

A steep climb up to Kyangjuma Village is accompanied by the views of Thamserku, Katenga and Ama Dablam peaks. From here begins the most strenuous ascend of the day to Mong La, an extremely charming place perched on the vicinity of Mt. Khumbila accommodating an ancient historical Chorten at the center of its settlement area. A relaxing lunch in the area and the trek ahead is pleasing with the scenery of abundant plants and vegetation including wildflowers and rhododendrons accompanied by wildlife throughout the journey to Dole.

 

Day 06: Dole to  Machherma

The trail starts up with scenic ridge above Dole and proceeds through amiable summer settlements and fascinating hamlet of Luza (4360m) along the Dudh Koshi Valley towards Maccherma, the last major settlement on the way to Gokyo. This is also the place where the Khumbu people first sighted Yeti in 1974. A visit to Himalayan Rescue Hospital is scheduled where the team attends a lecture regarding the altitude sickness, its precaution and primary treatment.

 

Day 07: Machherma to Gokyo

Climbing through a ridge Chorten, the team moves through Pangka (4480m) to terminal of Ngozamba Glacier towards Lake Longpongo on the bank of which is consigned the Lama footprints on a stone, passing through Lake Taboche Tsho towards the third lake by which Gokyo Village is settled. A relaxing lunch will be further rewarded with an amusing walk along Dudh Pokhari, the third lake.

 

Day 8: Gokyo Valley: Acclimatization Day

For acclimatization, a trek to Gokyo Ri will be arranged on this day with the exciting prospect of visiting the other three mesmerizing lakes of the Gokyo Valley. Thonak Tsho and Ngozuma Tsho are the fourth and fifth lakes beyond which the base camp of Mt. Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang being only a stone’s throw away. The further exploration to the sixth lake shall depend upon the interest and time available.

Day 9: Hike to Gokyo Ri  to Thaknak

Gokyo Ri will be scaled today if it hadn’t been done the previous day. The three to four hour climb is arduous, however, totally worth it! The views of the glaciers, lakes and peaks are awe-inspiring and mystifying. More mesmerizing is the sight of sunrays kissing the Everest. After descending the Gokyo Ri, lunch will be served just before we proceed on our trek to Thaknak.

 

Day 10: Thaknak to Cho-La Pass

One of the toughest days of the journey, trek to Cho-la Pass and Dzongla starts early at around 4-6 am. The steep trek includes a glacier traverse on the eastern side. Passing through frozen lake, steep and rocky trails and some crevasses, the convoy descends to Dzongla after the tough ascend to Cho-La Pass.

 

Day 11: Dzongla to Lobuche, Lobuche: Acclimatization Day

A short walk with more time for observation and relaxation fills this day with the transfixing views of Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Thamserku, Thaboche until the team arrives at Lobuche.

 

Day 12 : Lobuche Base Camp to Dingboche 

We finally begin the long road back home as we descend from the LBC towards Dingboche. The trail meets up with the path back from the EBC, making for excellent company!

Day 13: Dingboche to Namche Bazaar

The path is becoming easier as we trek downhill towards Namche Bazaar, and it's much less work this time around to literally stop and smell the flowers – thick forests of rhododendron and juniper in glorious red and pink bloom.

 

Day 14 : Namche Bazaar to Lukla

This day is our last day of trekking, we cross the spellbindingly gorgeous Khumbu region of the Himalayan foothills en route to Lukla. It's a seven hour trek today, but the grade is gentle and our walking is easy. Savor these final, seemingly endless moments of fresh, cool air, scenic countryside, and the stone steps beneath your feet - all too soon, it will be over! We'll lodge in Lukla tonight, and you'll have the perfect opportunity to do a bit of farewell partying with your trekking group.

Day 15 : Lukla to Kathmandu

We're back in the air, only this time going in the opposite direction! We'll hop the 35 minute flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu, leaving ample time to settle in and rest after two solid weeks of trekking.

 

Day 16 : Kathmandu: Departure Day

Our journey has comes to an end, but we hope your memories of Nepal and the staff of Bharal adventure will last a lifetime! It’s our pleasure to transfer you to the airport in time for your flight home, or to simply bid a fond farewell as you move on to other activities.

Amazing trek in Kanchenjunga region!

Last November I traveled to Nepal to visit the remote area of Kanchenjunga. I'm from Spain and did the Kanchenjunga circuit (North and South base camps) with my Indian friend. After many mails sent to several trekking companies based in Kathmandu we only received overpriced offers, until we finally met Arjun, the manager of Bharal Adventures, and our expectations changed immediately. He provided us with reliable information, answered all our mails quickly and carefully and made an itinerary to suit us at a very reasonable cost, exactly what we were looking for since a long time. Once in Kathmandu, his partner Bijay came to the hotel to introduce himself and give me some instructions before the trek and all the assistance I needed. The day before the departure, Arjun and Bijay invited us to have dinner at their home to offer us a warm welcome, they were really friendly. As per the trek itself, our guide had good experience in the Kanchenjunga region and managed all the situations in a solvent way. Besides, we were very lucky with the weather and could enjoy the trek with its stunning views. It was really a fantastic experience. Once the trek finished, Bijay and Arjun came to my hotel to be sure we received a good service during the trek and say goodbye. I can only recommend this trekking company to all the people traveling to Nepal. You will not be disappointed.

Unforgettable once in a lifetime experience To EBC led by Arjun & 3 amazing porters

Our journey started in 3 different cities in Malaysia, 6 travellers in all - Myself and my good friend Ray started out from Johor Bahru, Suk(the only female in our group) & Ricgen's journey started from Mallaca, the 4 of us met with See and Su in their home town of Kuala Lumpur, (KL) Malaysia. 

6 of us met in KL and departed from KL international airport for Kathmandu Nepal. where Arjun Dhakal met us at the airport and we transferred to our hotel and finalised all details for the EBC trek.
The next day we flew out to Lukla and this is where the real adventure began.
The actual trip is a story for another time all I will say is that this adventure was absolutely amazing in fact so amazing that I'm contemplating doing ABC with Arjun next year sometime.
Arjun and his team were very professional, his personable character allows for a very relaxed but very organised approach to everything during our trip.
The EBC adventure was one of the most amazing adventures I have ever experienced I would add that this trip rates equal to The Kokoda trek I completed in Papua Nuigini.
I want to express my gratitude to Arjun Dhakal and his team at Bharal adventures you were amazing and I would recommend this team to anyone interested in doing EBC


Kind Regards
& friends for life

The incredible Kanchenjunga circuit with Bharal Adventure !

We were two persons intending to trek in the remote and restricted Kanchenjunga region. I am an Indian and was with a Spanish friend. After not getting positive responses from various organizations or getting quoted very high prices, we landed on Bharal Adventure. And it was a great experience right from the beginning. The extremely polite Arjun answered all of our queries patiently, tailored the itinerary according to our requirements and finally helped us with a knowledgeable guide for this 22 day trek. And when everything was done at a reasonable cost, we couldn't ask for more. The superb weather and views during the trek added to everything and the overall experience was fantastic. Highly recommended for all your adventures in Nepal !

Everest Base Camp Hike 26/11 – 6/12

Going to the Everest Base Camp was once an impossible dream to achieve. 
With Bharal Edventure, the impossible dream comes to a reality. Mr Suraj, our guides, Ganesh and friends who made it possible for me to reach the EBC. I would not be able to go through the tough journey with extreme environments without their help and encouragement. 

Thank you very much for the hospitality given by Bharal Adventure especially Mr Suraj and Mr Arjun. Thank you so much for making this once impossible dream become possible. This is truly the most valuable experience I ever have.

Everest Base Camp Trek Dec- 24 – Jan 05 2019

Da jeg rejste alene, var det vigtigt for mig, at få afklaret alle spørgsmål. Arjun var meget behlælpelig og tålmodig med at besvare alle mine spørgsmål inden trekket. Selve turen var en super oplevelse. Deepak var vores guide. Han er en meget sympatisk, sjov og hjælpsom ung mand, der hele turen havde god føling med, hvordan det gik undervejs. Vi havde mange gode snakke om hvordan livet er i Nepal, for tidligere generationer op til i dag.
Det var en fantastisk oplevelse.
Tak for det :-)

Atemberaubend und immer wieder schn

Everest view Trek mit schnen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich crate immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Hhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein fr thus ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer fr sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman act ich auf einen wunderschnen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen box, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, in view of that dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefhlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem suit ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank fr die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

Solo travelers welcome!

I went to Nepal on a 9-day trek in the Langtang region a couple years ago. I was traveling on my own so I really appreciated to be with a trustworthy and friendly guide Sujan. I would definitely recommend his agency and would like to go back myself!

Annapurna base camp

We did our trekking to Annapurna base camp & Muktinath with Arjun from Bharal Adventures. Quite a well-organized trip and both Arjun and porter Hari presented themselves with professionalism and we enjoyed the trip. It was awesome to watch Annapurna and Machhapuchare

Recommander l’Agence Bharal Adventure

Je tiens à recommander l'Agence Bharal Adventure que nous avons eu l'occasion d'utiliser dans le cadre de notre Trek au Népal.

En effet, nous n'avons eu qu'à louer le professionnalisme, l'accueil, le sérieux et la capacité d'écoute des différents interlocuteurs rencontrés au sein de l'Agence. Notre binôme Guide Sujan e a été omniprésent et rigoureux pour nous permettre d'atteindre nos objectifs personnels et de découvrir les charmes et secrets du Népal. La capacité d'adaptation, l'écoute, la sécurité, la gentillesse et la connaissance de leur métier sont les principales caractéristiques de ceux-ci. Notre satisfaction n'en ai que plus grande.

Au de-là d'un rêve qui a pu devenir réalité, ce trek qui partait de Shivalaya après Jiri jusqu' au Kala Patthar en passant par GokyoRi et le col du Cho La, est finalement une des meilleures approches de la découverte de ce pays et des paysages de haute montagne. 
C'est sur la recommandation de Base Camp que nous avons pu l'aborder, l'envisager et finalement le reussir. De fait, je retiens que si je devais avoir de nouveaux objectifs montagneux dans l'avenir au Népal, je n'aurai aucune hésitation à les contacter pour envisager avec eux ce projet
