Book This TripLobuche Peak

Duration: 22 Days
Trip Grade:
Best Season: March - May, Oct - Nov

There are two distinct summits to Lobuche Peak – Lobuche East 6,119 m and Lobuche west 6,145 m. Although they are connected by a continuous ridge 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. 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.

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 notch, south east of the true peak.
