Ombigaichen Peak Climbing

Trip Code: EPO

31 Days

Everest Region Trekking Peak

Ombigaichan (6340m) is a rarely climbing peak in Mahalangur Himalayan range of the Everest region. It is approximately 2.4 km away from  Mount Ama Dablam. It is the well-hidden peak and the approach is not easy, although it is located along the famous Everest base camp trekking route. The climbing permit was first issued in 2002. The normal route to Ombigaichan Base Camp begins at Lukla and follows Namche Bazaar up to Ama Dablam base camp. From this base camp, we reach the base camp of Mt. Ombigaichen for climb and summit. Those trekkers who have a passion for climbing and in good physical condition can easily set their foot onto the top with the support of our Sherpa climber. The natural treasure of the Everest region is extremely rewarding.

The rhododendron forests that bloom in Spring, traditional villages of Sherpa community, lush meadows, roaring river, glacial lakes, and Buddhist monasteries add extra charm to this region and make one of the best destinations to explore. From the summit of Ombigaichan, one can enjoy the panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range that includes Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and many other peaks. The best season for Ombigaichen peak climbing is from March to May in spring and September to December in autumn. For more information, please contact us.
