Overview of Lobuche Peak Climbing

Ascension of the Lobuche Peak, there are two different peaks, the Lobuche East (6,119 m) and the Lobuche West (6,145 m). Although continuous crests are connected, there is a very short gap and a considerable distance between them. The Lobuche climb is an attractive ascent which offers a variety of existing routes. It seems to be very close from Pheriche, the dark triangle of the rock face rising above the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a frozen horizon. These horizons form the east wall’s connection with the southwest glacier wall and the regular ascent route of the south ridge. The trail leads to the hill’s summit, which runs from the top of the east wall to the northwest through several small peaks to the East Ridge. The East Peak right is quite fantastic and is reached by descending to a marked notch and climbing steep ice slopes. The summit is rarely climbed and is often confused with the Lobuche West.

Most attempts to climb the mountain only lead to the top of the side snow. Before the notch, the southeast summit is the summit of truth. Many matches have reached the fictitious summits east of the crack, but the first record ascent of the real East Lobuche. This trek leads to the heart of the Himalayas. The mountains’ views are overwhelming, so the Sherpa community’s simplicity and hospitality are touching. You will enjoy the breathtaking views of the snowy mountain, including Everest, the best of all mountains like Nuptse, Lhotse, Lobuche, Kasum Kanguru, Amadablam, and Kongde. On this memorable trip, you can also visit the Sherpa villages and monasteries to learn more about their culture and lifestyle.

This classic hike to the Solu Khumbu region begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla and a continuous walk along the Dudh Kosi. After passing through the Sherpa headquarters of Namche Bazaar, the hike continues to Tengboche, where a beautiful Buddhist monastery is located; and this small village is considered the spiritual center of the Khumbu region. Slowly, you will go up to Dingboche, and then you will go to Chhukung Ri. You will cross the Khumbu Pass, Kongma La, and descend to the Khumbu Glacier moraine to reach the Gorakshep base of Kalapattar. You can climb to the top of Kala Pattar at sunset or sunrise for beautiful panoramic views and the best view of the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest (8,848 m). You start the 3-hour hike to the Everest base camp where, depending on the season, you will see groups of mountaineering expeditions preparing to climb the highest peak in the world. Enjoy your vacation at the base camp, starting with the spectacular view of the Khumbu Icefall.

Along with the trek, you should bring a light backpack to acclimatize and enjoy the trip to the fullest. After exploring Everest Base Camp and Kalapattar, you descend to Lobuche Base Camp. The food will be prepared by your guide and the Sherpa and will be nutritious and rich, although a little is essential. This trip offers an excellent opportunity to climb Lobuche. After the full expedition, it is time to return to Lukla, the Khumbu Valley, alone.

Essential Information

Food and Accommodation

You will be accommodated in the teahouse and during the Lobuche Peak Climbing. Teahouses are simple, locally managed guest houses with double or single rooms. Toilets and showers are of a variable standard.

Typical meals for lunch and dinner are Nepali rice and lentils, pasta, potato dishes, soups, or pizzas. Delicious pancakes, porridge, toast, and eggs are the leading breakfast food, while tea, coffee, and hot chocolate are always available. You will probably be pleasantly surprised by the variety of food at the Posadas.

Every effort will be made to follow the above route. However, since this is an adventure trip to a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee it. Weather conditions and the health of the trekkers may contribute to the changes. The guides and their Sherpa helpers will try to make the trip as planned. However, be flexible if necessary.

Experience required: 

This hike is suitable for enthusiastic hikers who can walk 6 or 7 hours a day with a light backpack. Some of the days are quite long, and the hike feels more strenuous at high altitudes. In general, the trail is good, but it will be bumpy and rocky at times.

Travel Insurance

For safety reasons, travel insurance is mandatory for hikers when they participate in Lobuche Peak Climbing programs in the mountains. Getting travel insurance, especially when traveling in mountainous areas, is like security you can trust and enjoy your trip worry-free. We highly recommend getting good printed travel insurance that covers things like emergency helicopter rescue, medical evacuation expenses, and a shelter-assisted tour to cover personal injury, injury, repatriation costs, and any type of illness. Good travel insurance not only guarantees your safety while traveling with us, but it also gives you full coverage for anything that could go wrong.

Frequently Asked Questions

How difficult is it to climb the Lobuche peak?

Lobuche Peak Climbing offers an excellent introduction to the world of Himalayan mountaineering. The twin peaks (Lobuche East and Lobuche West) of Lobuche rise above the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier near Everest Base Camp. West Peak (20,160 feet) is considered a difficult technical destination to climb, then East Peak.

Climbing the Lobuche Peak typically requires 5 to 6 hours of walking every day. But on the day of the summit you have to walk 9 to 10 hours. The steep stone terraces and snow-covered slopes above the base camp are difficult to climb.

    Excellent support for Everest trek and Lobuche Peak climbing

    We did the Everest Base Camp trek and Lobuche Peak climb with Nepal Tour and Trekking Service P. Ltd in the first week of May 2017. The whole planning phase from home was seamless and smooth. Kishor, Agency Manager, was very responsive, informative, and flexible regarding our wishes and requirements. The entire trip lasted a total of 18 days and we always felt in good hands, cared for, and listened to. The guys were amazing, safety-conscious, adapted to our needs and we managed to get to the top as planned.

    Our trekking and climbing guide took such good care of us that we gained weight instead of losing it over time. From the first consultation to our international flight from Kathmandu, everything was very well organized. If someone is looking for a unique experience with great professionals, you have come to the right place. Kishor will take care of all your needs.
