Lobuche is a 6-thousander peak (6119 meter or 20070 feet above the sea level), right in-front of Everest on the trail of Everest base camp trek, so lobuche peak climbing is a best of all.
The peak is named after the Lobuche village at 4950m, which is also one of the Everest Base Camp trek destinations. Every trekker doing EBC trek see this peak once they get on top of Thukla pass, the memorial place for climbers perished in the mountains. From Thukla pass you can see Pheriche and the beautiful river valley ending at the bottom of the amazing mountain range of Amadablam, Thamsherku, Cholatse and many others.
On the other side you will see the surrounding mountains of Everest herself, but Lobuche peak is right in front of you, the one with less snow; the very top is with snow. Location of Lobuche peak climbing is perfect: right before Khumbu glacier and the Everest base camp, enabling a magnificent view of Everest from the top. This adventure is a perfect combination of Everest Base Camp trekking and stunning Lobuche Peak climbing.
Previous high altitude trekking experience, for example a successful Everest base camp trek completion, along with preparation to cold temperatures, will certainly help you to get to the top. Climbing above base camp is steep, which makes the climbing both challenging and interesting. If you are planning to climb Lobuche peak, make sure you are fit, both mentally and physically.
General knowledge about climbing, harness, and knots is appreciated but not compulsory. The climbing guide will take all the safety measures and let you know each and every step during the climb. Lobuche peak climbing starts after hiking up to the Everest base camp and climbing up to Kalapatthar 5545 meters, allowing proper acclimatization.
We start trekking from Lukla after a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu.
Following the main trekking route we walk to Everest base camp and after base camp split from the main crowd at Lobuche village. From Lobuche we head towards Lobuche peak base camp, from where Everest base camp trekkers head back to Pangboche; we get to the High camp of Lobuche by when they will reach Namche, but the day they trek the long way back to Lukla we will hit the top early in the morning for another great view of Everest Himalaya range. After summiting, we descend to Thukla for a joyful celebration of success and head back towards Lukla the following day.
This itinerary is designed to properly acclimatize our clients before attempting the summit of Lobuche peak. Lobuche Peak Climbing is not a trekking peak like Mera peak, therefore a good level of fitness and stamina are required to summit.
