Lobuche Peak, at 20,075ft/6,119m, is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal.  Lobuche East is an attractive summit and offers various routes for climbing.  Lobuche’s Eastern Peak consists of several small summits.  The true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes to the top along the summit ridge.

We follow the Everest base camp trekking route up to Pheriche and then trek to Dughla.  The base camp on Lobuche will be set at 4,950m/16,335ft near a lake in a rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated southwest face.  Views of Amadablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega Peak, and Tawache Peak are superb from here.  We climb steep stone terraces and snow slopes just below the main glaciers on the Southwest Face of Lobuche East.  We use fixed ropes to gain access to the ridge overlooking the Khumbu Glacier where the high camp will be.

We follow the snow ridge to the summit ridge.  Then we follow the northwest route toward the main summit, passing several small snow masses before reaching a notch.  Then we further climb steep and difficult snow slopes to the true summit.
