EBC and Lobuche East

Overview

Lobuche East peak is one of the popular peaks in Nepal to climb, located at the elevation of 6119 meters in Everest Khumbu Himalayan range. This peak is an attractive summit and offers various routes for climbing. The normal route for climbing is through South Ridge. Lobuche east peak consists of several small summits and the true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes at the top of the summit ridge.Our professionally designed itinerary takes us to the Everest base camp and Kalapattar then to Lobuche Peak. This will give us enough opportunity to get acclimatized.

Once we return to Lobuche village from Everest base camp, we trek up to the Lobuche peak base camp. The base camp will be set up at 4,950meters, near a lake in a rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated South-West Face. The views of Amadablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega peak and Tawache peak are superb from here. We climb steep stone terraces and snow slopes just below the main glaciers on the South-West Face of Lobuche East
