‘Trek and climb on classic Lobuche peak climbing with an awesome adventure of a lifetime experience’
Lobuche Peak Climbing in the Everest region of Nepal is the epitome of all peak climbing adventures in Nepal. Among many trekking peaks permitted to climb, this adventure is classed as TD that means technically difficult. However, you can climb the mountain with the peak climbing permit as you don’t have to get the expedition permit. If you want to do the expedition of higher mountains like Mt. Everest, do the Lobuche climbing first. It helps to prepare for the expedition and gain the much needed mountaineering experiences. Thus, the peak is suitable for novice first-timers and veteran climbers.
Lobuche has two peaks, those are Lobuche East (6119 m) and Lobuche West (6145 m). In order to climb the West Lobuche, climbers need to get the expedition permit. Therefore, if you are buying the Lobuche Peak Climbing package, it is for the East Peak.
In the surrounding of Khumbu Glacier and village of Lobuche, the Lobuche is situated. On the way to Everest Base Camp, trekkers can see this magnificent mountain on their left alongside mountains like Tabuche and Cholatse. Some people wonder that they can reach the summit of the West Peak after doing the East Lobuche Peak Climbing. Unfortunately, it is next to impossible as there is the huge crevasse and cliff wall in between these two mountains.
Climbers get to the base camp of Lobuche Peak after visiting the Everest Base Camp (5364 m). The accommodation and food are arranged in the tents by the Sherpa crew members during the summit push. The trail up to the high camp of the mountain is relatively easier. From the high camp to summit, climbers have to climb the arduous long stretch. As the climbers nears the summit, the trail becomes steeper. The route is through the snow ridgeline and snow notches. A steep climbing from these notches takes climbers to the top of the Lobuche Peak. Relish the splendid and panoramic view of the mountains from the top of the mountain.
