Nepal Adventure Trip

Lobuche Peak Climbing

Lobuche Peak ClimbingMt. Everest is Lobuche Peak main route. There are two distinct summits to Lobuche Peak (Lobuche East (6,119m) and Lobuche West 6,145m). Although a continuous ridge connects them, there is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them.

However, we recommend for East side as it is not strenuous than west side and our climbing Sherpa had a wonderful experience successfully. Lobuche is an attractive summit, offering a variety of existing routes and a wide scope for new lines. Seen from near Pheriche, the dark triangle of its rocky East Face rises above the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to an icy skyline. This skyline forms the South Ridge, the junction of the East Face with the glaciated South-West Face and the line of the normal route of ascent.

Main attraction of Lobuje peak is panoramic views of Himalayan peaks like Everest (8848m), Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega peak and Tawache peak etc. Lobuje peak is situated at Mahalangur Himalayan range in Everest region at Solukhumbu District, Nepal.

Lobuche Peak lays close to Khumbu Glacier offers an attractive climbing summit. Lobuche peak is technically challenging climbing peak of Everest region in this way Lobuche peak climbing is suggested only for those Climbers who have enough alpine mountaineering experience. There are various routes for climbing Lobuje east peak; normal route for Lobuche climbing is south ridge. Lobuche peak climbing journey start from Lukla Then we follow the Everest base camp trekking trail to reach the Lobuche peak base camp and setup base camp for up coming summit.

The true East Peak is quite striking and is reached by descending into marked notch and climbing steep snow/ice slopes to the top. This is rarely climbed and is often mistaken for Lobuche West. Most attempts on the mountain climb the summit ridge only as far as subsidiary snow summit, before the north, south-east of the true peak. After summit back to Lukla.
