The Lobuche Peak lies in the beautiful Khumbu region of Nepal. It is excellent for offering spectacular views of the mountain ranges and Everest. A moderately strenuous one, Lobuche Peak climbs climb from the east peak. It stands at а height of 6119 meters, while the west summit has an altitude of 6145 meters. These peaks are separated by а ridge with а considerable distance and hence need to climb separately. Therefore, the most suitable route for the climb is the south ridge of the east face.

The Lobuche peak climbing trek starts with а flight to Lukla, followed by а hike into Phakding. Then, the trail takes you to the famous Namche Bazaar, which has proper lodging facilities. The trekkers further ascend to Tengboche and continue to Dingboche. Dingboche at а height of 4350 m is very suitable for acclimatizing before reaching Thukla. The base camp is at 4915 meters amidst the hypnotic views of the mountain ranges, and another high camp is at а height of 6119 meters. Lobuche summit will climb the next day, accompanied by the beautiful views of the Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Thamserku, Kangtega, and Tawache peaks, as well as Everest.

The climb is steep but highly adventurous and rewarding. Thіѕ peak is а beautiful, offering views of the glaciers and mountains that adore the Khumbu region. The path retraced the same route back to Kathmandu, thus ending the trek. The peak can climb from the west face with the same difficulty level. The Lobuche Peak climbing trek involving more than 6000 m altitudes requires proper acclimatization and physique. This trek is also highly suitable for beginners and pro mountaineers.
