Lobuche East Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is a popular destination for mountaineers. Lobuche Peak is situated just above the Lobuche village in the Khumbu Region not far from Mt. Everest. Climbing Lobuche is the perfect and challenging activities in the Khumbu region. We have plenty of experience with this mountain and would be ready to take you to this adventure. The peak is technically not very challenging for climbers with some climbing experience; but no mountain should be underestimated with the usual dangers arising from altitude, exposure and weather conditions.

Lobuche has two different summits called Lobuche East Peak (6119m) and Lobuche West Peak (6145m) connected by a knife-edge ridge. Base Camp is located near to the Lobuche village to the south. It provides very easy access to the south ridge. Lobuche East peak has a dramatic arête to the east, forming a three-ridged pyramid. Both South and Southeast Ridges form a typical rock triangle extending to the Khumbu glacier moraine. The peak towers over the village and is easily identifiable from the Everest trail also.

We reach Lobuche via the Everest trail from Lukla, after a short 35-minute flight from Kathmandu. Then proceed through various Sherpa villages towards Namche Bazaar. It is the trading town of the region providing access to the higher valleys. We continue the travel to the famous monastery Tengboche (Tyangboche) on the way to which we should get our first view of Everest and Lhotse; then continue all the way to Gorak Shep (5125m) as part of acclimatization. We then move on to Kalapattar (5540m), a satellite peak of Pumori, for a classic view of Mt. Everest and the Khumbu Icefall. We can visit Everest Base Camp which is only a few distances away. We come back to Lobuche where we pick up supplies and trek to base camp (5200m). Further two days of acclimatization, we start the climb to the peak along the South Ridge to the summit (6119m).

We can see the superb view of the climbing route and ultimate summit from the base camp. The ridges of the summit provide the 360-degree panorama of the region including Amadablam, Pumori, and Everest. Certainly an unforgettable experience!
