Lobuche Peak Climbing

In the Lobuche Peak there are two different summits Lobuche East (6,119m) and Lobuche West (6,145m). The first attempt was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on 25 April 1984. There is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The true East Peak is quite striking and is reached by descending into a marked notch and climbing steep snow/ice slopes to the top. The top is exposed and often covered with moldy ice. Climbing trip to Lobuche East trekking peak offers various existing as well as new and challenging climbing routes to all the amateur climbers and explorers. Climbing to the southern base camp at an altitude of 5500 meter unfolds the stunning views of Ama Dablam, Tawache and many more after an acclimatization trek to Kala Pathar and Everest Base Camp.
