- The breath-taking view of the Lobuche Mountain
- All the highlights of the Everest Region
- The trekking trail that the great mountaineers have walked
Climbing Kongma Tse Peak is reaching the summit, from where you will see a 360-degree view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and so on. To reach the top of this peak, you will follow the climbing route on the southern side of the Kongma Tse Peak, and to get to the base of this peak, you will walk on the Khumbu Glacier at the end. During the climbing, there are glaciers on the way. From the bottom of the Kongma Tse Peak, you will see the Nuptse Glacier and Lobuche, and as you climb from this base camp, you will find the Kongma Tse Peak non-technical. The summit of the Kongma Tse Peak is diamond shaped with a hanging glacier.
Apart from seeing and walking on glaciers, the trekking trail of the Kongma Tse Peak takes you to the villages of the Sherpa people, who are the locals of the Everest Region and creates you an opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful monasteries of Nepal in the Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The itinerary of the Kongma Tse Peak Climbing matches the itinerary of the Kongma Tse Peak Trekking, and there is hardly any difference between the two. However, there is a difference between the itinerary of the Everest Base Camp Trek and the Kongma Tse Peak Climbing itinerary, so you get 2 in one. You can customise the itinerary of the Kongma Tse Peak Climbing to include Everest’s base camp.

Ama Dablam, which you see, is the world’s most beautiful mountain.
Day 09 From Dingboche to Lobuche (4 meals provided, standard accommodation)
You are heading to the higher altitudes, and you will notice changes in the geographical features as you come across the snowy region and shrub plants.

Day 10 From Lobuche to the Kongma La Pass Base Camp (4 meals provided, tented camp)

Day 12 From Chukkung to Tengboche (4 meals provided, standard accommodation)
You walk uphill and downhill, and you are in a high altitude of a rocky area. On the way, there are small villages and suspension bridges. You will also reach a town called Dingboche. Here the locals grow buckwheat and potatoes. Later, you will come across the forest.
Day 13 From Tengboche to Namche (4 meals provided, standard accommodation)
