Lobuche (also spelled Lobuje) is a Nepalese mountain that lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and the settlement of Lobuche. There are two main peaks, Lobuche East and Lobuche West. A permit to climb the mountain is required from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), which classifies Lobuche East (6,119m) as a "trekking peak" and Lobuche West (6,145m) as an "expedition peak". As the easier, trekking peak, the East peak is climbed far more frequently than the West peak; however, most of those climbers only do so to a false summit a few hours from the true summit of Lobuche East. Between the two peaks is a long, deeply notched ridge, though a steep drop and considerable distance make approaching the West peak from the East impossible.
Lobuche Peak is a stunning peak resting at 6,119m/ 20,075 feet above sea level. On the approach to climb Lobuche peak, we will take the traditional Everest Trail, leaving from Lukla and heading up the impressive Khumbu Valley. Along the trail, we will spend 3 nights acclimatizing in Namche Bazar, the Sherpa capital of the Region. We will also visit impressive monasteries and view remarkable scenery as we pass numerous seven and eight-thousand-meter peaks on the trail. We really only run private group climbs to Lobuche peak. We can tailor an itinerary to your needs. Lobuche peak is a strenuous climb to its summit above 20,000 feet and needs to be treated with respect. This challenge will make you felt like you can climb the world and standing on a tiny summit high in the Himalaya’s is a very special feeling, but you need to come trained and prepared for the climb. Lobuche Peak is an excellent introduction to Himalayan high altitude mountaineering, but you need to come prepared for this climbing challenge. Lobuche peak requires mountaineering skills. You need to be comfortable in crampons, using ropes and abseiling using a figure of 8 and moving between fixed lines. This is really important for your and your team's safety on the mountain.
