Lobuche Peak climbing lies in the Everest Base Camp trek route, hundreds of climbers climb Lobuche Peak, Situated at an altitude of 6,119m, in the Everest region. There are two summits in Lobuche Peak- Lobuche East known as a trekking peak and Lobuche West known as an expedition peak, connected by a ridge and located at a considerable distance from each other. Both the summits are shaped similarly forming a triangle on each summit. You can view both of these summits from the Everest Kalapather.

Lobuche East at an altitude of 6,145 meters is one of the difficult trekking peaks that climbers attempt to climb. The east peak consists of several small summits. The main summit is reached by climbing a steep and difficult snow slope. Rising above the moraines of the Khumbu glacier, the east face of Lobuche Peak looks like a dark triangle. Even though, a difficult peak to climb, the trek to Lobuche Peak is exciting as the place offers a variety of existing routes and opportunities to set on new trails. The experienced climber can combine it with Island peak climbing which is in the corner of Chhukung.

The trek to Lobuche Peak is popular because of the panoramic view of the Himalayan range it offers a view of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Kantega, Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest are some of the mountains that can be seen from Lobuche Peak which lies just above the village of Lobuche. The gorgeous landscape, fascinating culture of the Sherpa people, and their generosity are some of the more reasons why you should go on this trek.

Lobuche peak climbing, you will first head to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) for proper acclimatization. The route is also followed because of the proximity between EBC and Lobuche Peak. The trip starts with a slightly nerve-wracking flight to Lukla, from where we follow the Dudh Koshi Valley, traveling through lush valleys and Sherpa villages including Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pheriche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep before finally setting camp at Everest Base Camp. From here, you will make your climb to Lobuche Peak. After the ascent, you will continue towards Gorakshep and then climb to Kala Pattar from where you can enjoy the gigantic Mt Everest at close range.
