    Lobuche peak climbing is located above the Lobuche village in the Khumbu region. This peak is in close proximity to Mt. Everest at a striking distance of a few kilometers. The Lobuche peak is comprised of two different summits: Lobuche East (6119m) and Lobuche West (6145m).

    The journey of the peak begins from Lobuche village through South ridge. Both the peaks are quite dynamic and adventurous, with similar topography, forming a pyramid shape for each peak. The peaks cordon the Everest base camp for the climbers approaching the Lobuche village. The peak's base camp is located on the southeast direction of the Lobuche east peak. The south and southeast ridge of the peak form a triangle, bordering to the Khumbu Glacier on sideways. It is easily identified by the way of trekking due to distinct stone memorials.

    Highlights of Lobuche Peak Climbing

    • Buddhist Monasteries, Alpine forests of fir and rhododendron, high suspension bridges.
    • Trekking to the foot of the world’s highest mountain.
    • Home of Sherpa People.
    • Kalapatthar for the whole view of Everest.
    • Spectacular view of Amadablam, Pumori and Everest.
    • Walking through the Sagarmatha National Park.

    The trekking to the Lobuche Peak begins with a climb from the renowned valley of Lukla. After the short flight of 35 minutes from Kathmandu, this way follows through the Khumbu villages. Namche Bazaar is a famous trading post on the way, lying in between Nepal and Tibet. The way is full of many landmarks, such as the Tyangboche Buddhist monastery set, view of Lhotse peak, Pangboche village-considered as the highest Sherpa village, and Dingboche– often called as the gateway to the Island Peak. The Gorak Shep village (5125m) serves as a base for acclimatization to the new altitude for the mountain climbers.

    The village offers a great panoramic view of Kalapatthar (5540m) a site for viewing the great Mt.Everest, the Khumbu Icefall. The path from the village is followed by a hike to the Everest base camp. Once acclimatized to the settings, we walk back to the Lobuche village and move forward to the Lobuche East base camp. Again, we will take around 2 days to acclimatize to the surroundings, followed by a climb on the south ridge to reach the summit. The base camp serves as a great photography spot. The path on Amadablam, Pumori, and Everest are quite dynamic with majestic views. Reaching the summit, we will have a complete sight of the great Himalayas and many of its peaks. One can also see the Himalayan glaciers and lakes of the Sagarmatha National Park.
