Mt. Ombigaichen, situated proudly at the elevation of 6,340 meters above sea level in Mahalangur range of Khumbu Region of Nepal, is one of the demanding peaks to be climbed. The peak is one of the rarely climbed peaks which were recently opened for climbers in 2002 and is categorized as group ‘A’ climbing peak by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). However, Ombigaichen Peak climbing trip is a spectacular and magnificent adventure into the most famous Khumbu Region of Nepal offering mesmerizing views of high mountains like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Baruntse, Ama Dablam and various other peaks.
However, the trip itinerary of Ombigaichen Peak Climbing is designed in such a way to avoid gradual ascend and descend (optional in peak climbing) with proper acclimatization for making your trip easy, comfortable, enjoyable and explorative. As usual in every higher elevation trip in Nepal or towards Nepal’s Himalayas, the best time to make your journey is March-May and September – November.
Moreover, Ombigaichen Peak Climbing journey is started, as usual in the Khumbu Region of Nepal, with a comfort scenic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu valley which is reached in about 35 minutes. From Lukla, start trekking towards Phakding, Namche Bazaar (you can rest for acclimatize here), Khumjung, Tyangboche, Ama Dablam Base Camp, Ombigaichen Base Camp (5,200 meters), High Camp (5,600 meters) and finally to the summit of the peak, situated at the altitude of 6,340 meters above sea level.
However, the summit of the peak offers you with the amazing mountain views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Cholatse, Pumori, Changri and many more peaks within that range. From the summit of the peak, trek back to base camp and follow the trekking trail through Mong La Hill Station, Chumoa crossing Namche Bazaar and finally Lukla valley. From Lukla, you can easily get back to Kathmandu valley with a comforting flight.
