When to go (Best Season to Travel)
Autumn (October-Mid December) and spring (March-May) are the best season for the Lobuche Peak Climbing. The weather during the season is sunny and warm during the day that offers you to enjoy the magnificent view of the Himalayan range whereas the nights are chilling and cold and can fall to freezing in the higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan and Feb) is also ideal for Lobuche Peak Climbing but cold is something that bothers you. Trekking and peak climbing during summer will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon of a keen botanist. The trekking routes are always busy with trekkers during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed and crowded and you can have a great journey enjoying the scenic views.

Travel Insurance:
Travel insurance is highly recommended for trekkers who plan their trekking in the Himalayas. Travel insurance is mandatory while going for trekking, hiking etc in Nepal. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, helicopter rescue, loss of luggage, etc. We strongly recommend that your policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.

If you are travelling in a group, you will share a room with one of the group member with same sex. If you wish to stay single in a room then you have to let us know in advance and some surcharges are applicable in such case. Please be noted that there are several guest houses that do not allow a single accommodation during the peak season so sharing the room with somebody becomes a compulsion. We will arrange your dinner and early breakfast in the guest house itself but the lunches will be arranged in some restaurants en route. Your stay at a local guest house helps you to be more familiar with local culture and traditions.

Breakfree Adventures is highly concerned about the standard of food and make sure that sufficient food is provided to our guest.

Acclimatization:
Breakfree Adventures’s 18-days Lobuche Peak Climbing is planned with high degree of awareness about Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Trekking in the higher altitude too fast might cause a medical condition serious enough to cause death. The level of oxygen fluctuates as the height increases. For example on the high camp & at summit, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Our body requires many days to adapt the less-oxygen environment so the itinerary should be planned accordingly. Our itinerary is planned in such a way that it provides sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible trek plan is therefore very crucial to minimize the risk of AMS. Breakfree Adventures highly advises specially the guests with known heart, blood or respiratory diseases to consult their medical professional before travelling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Our leaders are well trained to administer the AMS. Breakfree Adventures’s itineraries are designed to avert the risk of AMS as much as possible.
