Lobuche Peak Climbing and EBC Trek

Lobuche Peak Climbing which is situated close to Khumbu Glacier in Everest Region, offers an attractive climb summit with a variety of existing routes and wide scope for new lines. Lobuche Peak is one of the popular trekking peaks in the Himalayan country of Nepal. The peak is an attractive summit and offers several triails for climbing.

There exist two distinct summits to Lobuche peak: Lobuche east (6119m) and Lobuche west (6145m), although they are connected by a continuous edge and they have sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The trekking peak permit is for the east peak, at the same time as Lobuche west seen at the head of the Lobuche glacier.

From the summit, we have a great view of Mt. Everest, Amadablam etc., and a 360 degree Himalayan panorama that include all important peaks in the Khumbu Valley. This Lobuche peak climbing is a beautiful climb with some technical challenges.
