A climb of Lobuche Peak is more challenging than climbing either Island Peak or Mera Peak. It is an ideal add on to any trip to Everest Base Camp.It was used in the past by climbers attempting Mount Everest as warm up climb for many years. Our itinerary takes us on the classic route to Everest Base Camp before branching off the beaten trail for the two day tented climb of Lobuche Peak.
Situated deep in the heart of Khumbu Everest region, Lobuche Peak has two distinct summits - Lobuche East (6119m) and Lobuche West (6145m) . It is a challenging climbing peak and requires a great commitment and you should have some experience on snow, walking with an ice axe and using crampons and fixed ropes. In fact any mountaineering experience, however basic, will help you. However, training is provided before the summit attempt by our mountain sherpas and with stamina and will, there is a strong likelihood you will succeed.
