3. Lobuche Peak

Lobuche Peak Climbing (6119 / 6145 meter)

 

 

 

There exist two distinct summit to Lobuche peak: Lobuche east ( 6119m/ 20,075ft ) and Lobuche west ( 6145m/ 20161ft ). 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.

Lobuche peak is an attractive summit, offering a variety of existing routes and 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 and icy skyline. This skyline forms the south ridges, the junction of the east faces with the glaciated south west face and the line of the normal route of ascent. This in turn leads to the summit ridge running North West from the top of the east. Several small summits could be viewed from the east peak.
