3. Lobuche Peak

Lobuche Peak Climbing





Lobuche Peak, Nepal



Lobuche East is one of the trekking peaks opened for climbing in Nepal. It is situated at the above the Lobuche, which is just a day camp before trekking to the classical trail to Gorekshep and Everest Base Camp. Lobuche has two summits, east and west, heights of 6119m and 6145m respectively but we will summit to the East at our expeditions. Although they are connected by a continuous ridge there is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The trekking peak permit is for the east peak, while Lobuche west, which could be seen at the head of the Lobuche glacier, requires the expedition permit.





Among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Lobuche East is one of the most technical peaks climbing, even if it is only at the altitude of 6119m from sea level. Lobuche east climbing required a excellent uses of using expeditions styles of rope (Main and fix rope), climbing involves some step and slippery rocks slabs and snow slopes to reach south west ridge, which is just below the glacier, which is along with the high camp, then the final expeditions climb would be sharp and exposed ridge which leads to the real summit. Depending on the seasons, the summit to the Lobuche east required climbing with angle of 70 to 75 degrees with some belayed snow or ice climbing, thus it is most demanding.
