So, all the dirt will flow away by monsoon rain, and the surroundings look fresh. The training trail to Lobuche Peak climbing has rhododendrons and blooming flowers.

The skies also remain clear during this time of year. The minimum temperature falls to -2 degrees Celsius. During this season, you can see different new species of animals, birds, and plants. The skies and the view of the mountains are apparent, with fewer chances of precipitation.

Suppose you are a loner and want to avoid the crowd with the best view of the mountain. Then, you can trek during the spring season. You will find greenery everywhere. You can observe mountains in their beautiful form.

Lobuche peak climbing best for first time climbers

I had never climbed before and wanted accessible peak climbing in Nepal. Above the Himalayas, trekking introduces me to Lobuche peak climbing.

I did a one-day training at base camp, learned basic things with my climbing guide, and started climbing. The first part was quite hard, but finally, I reached the top. It was a lifetime experience, and I will come back for higher peaks.
