About Short Lobuche Peak Climbing
Nestled at 6119 meter above sea level, Lobuche East Peak Climbing is an energizing and challenging way to overhaul your Classic Everest Base Camp Trekking with an excellent climb within the center of Khumbu valley of Nepal. Lobuche Peak is a genuine 6000 meter mountaineering experience which requires a basic knowledge of rock and ice climbing techniques at high altitude. Comparatively, Lobuche Peak is little less in altitude than Island Peak (6189 meter) but climbing Lobuche East is technically more challenging. Lobuche consists of several small summits, but ‘Lobuche Peak’ refers to Lobuche East, rather than Lobuche West. The popular route to Lobuche East is from the south ridge.
Our Lobuche Peak climbing begins from Lobuche village where our climbing guide will be there to welcome you and he will check all the climbing equipment to make sure that you have everything you need for your safety and comfort. The trail up the valley from Lobuche becomes increasingly steep and rocky as we near the Lobuche Base Camp (4950m). From Base Camp, we clamor over steep stone terraces and snowy slopes using fixed ropes to reach the ridge along the southwest face where we set up Lobuche High Camp (5600m).
From High Camp, we cross over steep stone chunks which may be covered with ice and snow. To reach the proper summit ridge, we have to ascend 50m on a 45 degree snow wall. We use fixed ropes. The sharp snowy ridge to the first summit is exposed. There is a descent which you may need to rappel down before the final sharp ascent to the summit. From the summit, we acknowledge the unparalleled panoramic view of some of the greatest mountains on earth including Mount Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Lobuche, Ama Dablam, Makalu and particularly, an eccentric view of Mount Everest, which is not visible from Island Peak.
The best season for Lobuche East Peak Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December, the views of mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around.

Today, you'll meet our Climbig Guide and supporting crew at Lobuche after breakfast. After a brief meeting and gear check, you will head towrds Lobuche East High camp and sleep overnight at High Camp.
Early in the morning, we will set out for the summit of Lobuche East where you will get one of the best views of the greatest mountains in the world: Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pumori, and many more. After spending some quality time in the summit, we will lower down to Lobuche High Camp for lunch and then towards Thokla/ Lobuche / Dzongla
Since we cannot guarantee favorable weather for the scheduled summit day, we have allowed an extra day in the schedule. If we are unable to summit the Lobuche Peak on due to bad weather or some other reason, such as someone in the group having acclimatization problems, it is useful to have an extra day. If the trip goes smoothly, and we do not need this spare day, we will continue our return journey to Lukla.
