Lobuche: There are two distinct summits to Lobuje
Peak – Lobuje East (6119m/20070ft) and Lobuje West
(6145m/20161ft). Lobuje is an attractive summit,
offering a variety of existing routes and a wide
scope for new lines. Seen from near Pheriche, the
dark triangle of its rocky East Face rises above
the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to an icy
skyline. This skyline forms the South Ridge, the
junction of the East Face with the glaciated
South-West Face and the line of the normal route
of ascent. This in turn leads to the summit ridge
running northwest from the top of East Face
through several small summits to the East Peak.

Lobuche East is the hardest of the trekking peaks
that commercial groups attempt. In the Everest
Region (Khumbu) only Kwangde and Kusum Kangru are
more difficult. The main peak of Lobuche is
Lobuche West and is not included in the trekking
peak permit. Therefore for a legal climb to
Lobuche West (Main Peak) an Expedition Peak Permit
is required which is considerably more expensive.
Now follows a description of Lobuche East
(20075ft, 6119m 27 58 08N, 86 47 04S).
Good conditions and a dawn or pre-dawn start is
recommended. The average gradient for the entire
climb is not steep, but there are areas of messy
seracs that require two axes, front pointing and
belaying. The ridge route is sometimes easier.
Many climbers who take this approach stop at the
top of the ridge, thinking this is the summit of
Lobuche East. But infact a continuation on the
knife-edged ridge is needed (roped!) to reach the
true summit.

Lobuche Peak Climbing

Known as Lhauche among the Locals, this peak is an attractive summit offering a variety of existing routes and wide scope for new lines. This peak rises above the town of Lhauche which is just a few kilometer from the Mt. Everest. There exist two distinct summits on this peak and our objective is to get on the 6,119m. High eastern summit. Our climbing route on this peak is South Ridge. The recorded first ascent on this peak was by Laurice Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on 25 April 1984.
Lobuche is an ideal as a last big trekking peak challenge, as it offers a series of tops all along the ridge. From the summit, we have a great view of Mt. Everest and a 360 degree Himalayan panorama that include all important peaks in the Khumbu Valley.
