March-May & Sept.-Nov.
The Everest region is one of the most celebrated regions by travel enthusiasts. Blessed with the raw splendor of mother nature, this region has some unspoiled locations full of huge mountains and peaks.
On this Everest three Peak climbing package - Himalayan Trekkers offers you the opportunity to climb 3 different peaks Lobuche, Phokalde and Island Peak.
To make this trip a memorable one, a program has been created where you start with Pokalde peak climbing, continue to the glory of the Imja Tse or Island Peak and finally climb over the challenging Lobuche Peak.
These are certainly three of the most striking peaks in the region and promise to take you on a fairy-tale-like joyride.
Although Everest itself is everything you can ask for, the surrounding smaller peaks such as Lobuche, Phokalde and Island Peak also have their own glory and climbing history.
Pokalde Peak is the smallest of the three at 5806 m and makes it an easier climb and therefore the first peak to climb.
The island peak stands high at 6189 m, offers a challenging climb for the travelers, but offers amazing views that look like an island surrounded by an enormous sea of ice. Being right in the middle of the Chhukung Valley - the heart of the Everest region - one can expect to be blown away by the beauty of these beautiful mountains.
Finally, the pure elegance of Lobuche reaches 6119 m and the toughest climb between three of them.

Our journey starts along the famous Everest path, through Namche, Tengboche and Dingboche. This is the same path that one follows for the Everest Base Camp trek, but our route differs and breaks from Dingboche.
From Dingboche the base camp of Pokalde Peak is the first stop, followed by the crossing of Kongma La Pass (5535m), to finally reach the Pokalde Peak High Camp. The route is rough and leads you to Pokalde Peak, from where you can bask in the great view of Khumbu Region, Makalu Peak, Ama Dablam and Pumori.
Our next target is Chhukung Valley, the second peak on the list, the Island Peak. Although the path is challenging, the view of Nuptse, Baruntse, Makalu and Ama Dablam from the island peak will fill your heart with completeness.
The final peak is Lobuche East Peak for which we descend to Dingboche, begin ascending to Everest Base Camp followed by Kala Patthar, and finally conquer the summit of Lobuche East. It is known as one of the most difficult "Trekker's Peak" and once you overcome it, a sense of achievement and valor will fill your hearts.
Lastly, to enhance your ‘Nepal Experience’ and to explore more of the region we also offer an additional trekking option after the ascents via crossing the Cho La Pass and explore the impressive Gokyo Valley. It takes additionally 4 days.
