Overview

Lobuche East Peak Climbing


Climb the East Peak of Lobuche in the Everest Region to experience the top view of the largest peaks in the world. Lobuche Peak Climbing is challenging, but it comes with great perks of mountaineering in Nepal.

Lobuche Peak provides spectacular view of Everest Region, Nuptse and Lhotse in the east, with views of other great mountains and hills in all directions. Climbing Lobuche requires physical fitness and determination. Lobuche is accessible via Gorakhshep, and consists of Lobuche East and Lobuche West peaks. Technically speaking, Lobuche West is graded as difficult to summit. So most of the climbing is done in the Eastern peak of the mountain. The trip to the peak takes climbers to the altitude of 6,186 meters / 20295 feet, and is a 3 day up and down journey.

The trip starts with landing at the Lukla airport and trekking towards the Everest Base Camp via beautiful settlements and highlands in the region (Lukla, Phakding, Namche, Tengboche.., to name a few). Everest Region helps you understand the famous Sherpa culture and lifestyle.

Before climbing Lobuche, climbing guides and leaders provide trainings and exercises; plus we acclimatize properly to adapt the thin air with the ascent. Climbing Lobuche is graded as an fairly easy adventure and the best months to climb this peak are March to May and October to December.
