Lobuche Peak Climbing

Lobuche Peak rises majestically above the village of Lobuche just a few kilometers away from the Everest, yet it is ignored by climbers blinded with the rush to Everest, Pumori, Island Peak and Amadablam. Even if they discover Lobuche Peak, most of the climbers, over 90% manage to reach only false summit of Lobuche East Peak, and turn back overwhelmed by the summit ridge and real summit less than 200m away and only less than 100m above.

Mount Lobuche consists of two different summits, Lobuche East (6119m) and Lobuche West (6145m). They are connected together by 1.8km Southeast-Northwest ridge. Lobuche East is easily accessible as a trekking peak whereas the Lobuche West being expedition peak requires more expensive expedition permit and expensive logistics. Lobuche East was first climbed by Laurice Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on 25 April 1984.

Lobuche East climb

Lobuche east climbing route is from the village of Lobuche via South Shoulder and South Ridge. We offer  Lobuche East peak climbing adventure as a guided climb to moderate climbers or adventurous trekkers with our pre-departure preparation program.

Technically the Lobuche East is all about ice climbing and Lobuche West is more about the Expedition. 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, whilst Lobuche west, well seen at the head of the Lobuche glacier, requires and expedition permit. The Panoramic view from the summit is outstanding. Lobuche West is a bit stiff and a little bit more difficult than Lobuche East. Mostly Lobuche East is preferred by various trekkers and peak climbers. There are various routes for climbing the East peak, Normal (south-west), North face.

It takes less than 4 hours to reach the false summit and about 1 hour to return climb to the summit via daunting snow ridge and easy rock-snow climb, however few people dare because the most people attempting it are trekkers without any climbing experience. It is not a huge challenge for a climber but a daring move for a trekker without prior experience to expose.
