Lobuche East Peak Climbing

Lobuche East is one of the most attractive climbing peaks in the Khumbu region. We have designed the itinerary and information for Lobuche East Peak though there is another climbing peak namely Lobuche West (6,145m) connected with Lobuche East Peak at the south-western side of Upper Khumbu valley. Comparatively, Lobuche East peak climbing is a bit more difficult than Island Peak climbing. We set up our first camp at Base Camp at the elevation of 4,950 near a lake in a rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated South-West Face. The climbing clinic course will be provided at the Base Camp by Pioneer Adventure’s experienced mountain expert guides to the participating climbing members.

The views of Ama Dablam and Tawache from the Base Camp will be seen superb. Our climbing trip to Lobuche East Peak starts with an exhilarating mountain flight to Lukla. From Lukla, we begin trek heading northward towards the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar passing through the Sagarmatha National Park. After a few days of trekking, we will reach Lobuche East Base Camp, the starting point of our climb. Then, we slowly climb to Lobuche high camp and finally summit Lobuche East Peak. The normal route that we follow for climbing Lobuche East is via South Ridge. When we reach the summit, we will enjoy the magnificent views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Nuptse (7,861m), Mt. Pumori (7,161m), and Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812m), with other peaks. We stay only a few moments on the summit, thereafter we descend down again towards the Base Camp. From the Base Camp, we re-trace the same route that we had used before until we reach Lukla, where we take our return flight to Kathmandu.

Those who are interestead in climbing Lobuche East peak must require basic mountaineering skills and full support and assistance of experienced climbers as the climbing is done through steep snow and ice slopes. Our experienced climbing Sherpa guide will place fixed lines on difficult sections for our participating members to ensure safe ascent and descent.
