Lobuje East Peak

Trip Code: PLE

20 Days

Lobuje East Peak

Lobuje is one of the popular trekking peaks in the Everest region. It has two major peaks called   Lobuje East (6,119m/20,070ft) and Lobuje West (6,145m/20,161ft) connected to each other in spite of having a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. Lobuje East is a beautiful peak It has a variety of existing routes to the summit.  From the top of the peak, one can enjoy the fantastic views of the Himalayan Mountains Range like Mt. Everest. Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam, Tawache and many other peaks. Very few climbers have attempted to reach the summit till date. Good weather conditions and a dawn or pre-dawn start are the major factors to climb and summit successfully. In fact, the entire climb is not steep, but there are areas of difficult seracs that require two axes, front pointing and belaying. The ridge route is sometimes easier. Many climbers who follow this route stop at the top of the ridge, assuming that this is the false summit of Lobuche East Peak. However, a continuation on the knife-edged ridge is required to reach the false summit. The true summit of Lobuche East Peak is thought to be, at first, unattainable, but the Swiss Expedition group first climbed Lobuche East Peak in 1952. Subsequent attempts fell short of the summit, finally climbed in 1984.

The best time to climb Lobuche East peak is between March to May and October to December. In fact, Lobuje East Peak climbing is an adventure of a lifetime for every trekker in Nepal.
