Lobuche Peak Climb

Lobuche Peak Climb is one of the most recommended 6000 meters peaks that are easily accessible. This program is for climbing the east summit, it’s less technical and easy to climb, but one must recognize the mountain as sometimes it can be more challenging due to instant changes in weather conditions and insufficient climbing techniques. The peak has two summits: East and West summits. The East Summit, callable as “Lobuji La”, has been climbed by most trekkers thus far as it offers a clear line of sight to all other mountains in the area and is therefore considered ‘easier’ than its western counterpart. At 6,119m, ‘Lobuji La’ can be summited in one long day if you aren’t too timid of steep inclines or avalanches from those who fell from nearby slopes on their way down from this peak. 

Most climbers attempting to climb Everest in spring climb Lobuche Peak as an alternative to acclimatization to Camp-I to minimize the risk of the Khumbu Icefall.
