Lobuche Peak Climbing

Adventure-pulse offers Lobuche Peak with acclimatize trip to Everest Base Camp. If you are looking for climbing less crowed Peak than Island Peak, Then the best option would be Lobuche Peak with an ample experience and taste of Ice Climbing.

Lobuche Peak offers spectacular view of High Himalaya ranges of Khumbu Valley including Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Makalu etc. Lobuche Peak lies close to Khumbu Glacier in Everest Region, offers an attractive climb summit. There are two distinct peaks, Lobuche East and Lobuche West. Although they are associated by a continuous ridge, there is a sharp gap and a much distance between two peaks. The true Lobuche Peak East is quite prominent and is reached by downward into a marked cut off and climbing step snow/ice slopes to the top.

The lobuche peaks have been achieved by several climbers. Lobuche East and Lobuche West were first climbed by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on April 25, 1984. Now Lobuche Peak is taken as a acclimatize trip to Mt. Everest Expedition.
