Lobuche Peak Climbing

Durtation: 19 Days

Price: US 2,849 All Inclusive

Lobuche Peak Climbing is one of the most thrilling and challenging climbs in Sagarmatha National Park. Lobuche Peak (6119m) is located above the Lobuche village in the Khumbu region and is close proximity to Mt. Everest at a striking distance of a few kilometers.

Lobuche Peak is comprised of two different summits: Lobuche East (6119m) and Lobuche West (6145m). However, the west peak is considered as 'expedition peak' rather than a trekking peak due to more difficulties and technical challenges. So the eastern peak is the goal of this trip.

The journey to the summit begins from the village of Lobuche via the southern ridge. Both peaks are quite dynamic and adventurous, with a similar topography, forming a pyramid shape for each peak. The peaks cordon off Everest Base Camp for climbers approaching the town of Lobuche. The base camp of the peak is located in the southeastern direction of the eastern peak of Lobuche. The southern and southeastern ridge of the peak form a triangle, bordering the Khumbu Glacier on its side. It is easily identified by the way of trekking due to distinct stone memorials.

Highlights of Lobuche Peak Climbing

  • Trekking to the foot of the world’s highest mountain
  • Home of Sherpa People
  • Buddhist monasteries, alpine forests of fir and rhododendron, high suspension bridges
  • Kalapatthar for the whole close-up view of mighty Everest
