Lobuche East Peak Climbing, Lobuche East Peak Climbing Nepal, Climbing in Lobuche East Peak, Climbing in Mount Lobuche East, Lobuche Peak Climbing Information, Lobuche Peak Climbing Trip Cost, Lobuche Peak Climbing Itinerary, Lobuche Peak Climbing Route MapLobuche Peak has two different summits Lobuche East (6,119m) and Lobuche West (6,145m). Between Labuche East Peak and Labuche west peak has sharp gap and a considerable distance. The Labuche East Peak is quite remarkable and is reached by descending into a marked notch and climbing steep snow/ice slopes to the top. The summit of Lobuche peak is exposed and often covered with moldy ice.

After we have finished our training, we will make the brief and beautiful trek to Lobuche East. Labuche east Base camp is located at 5550m near a beautiful hidden lake at the base of the glaciated South-West Face.

From the northern end of the lake near base camp, we climb terraces and snow slopes below the main glaciers of the South-West Face and gain access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier. At the point where the glacier face and ridge meet we will establish our Labuche eas peak high camp.

From the high camp of labuche peak we will continue up the summit ridge. The route to the Labuche East Peak follows summit ridge north-west across several snow bumps along the way. The Lobuche east peak summit can reach with some difficulty by gaining the notch with a descent followed by steep snowy slopes climb to the summit of Labuche east peak. Climbing Clinic course held at base camp briefed and instructed by experienced mountain experts so that you acquire the necessary skills and confidence to achieve your goal.

Day 01: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2886m.) which takes about 30 minutes and trek from Lukla to Phakding (2640 m.) and it takes approximately three hours. Fly to Lukla. You descend a mountainside path that merges into your route to Everest, with views to a valley to your right; and at its far end, Kusum Kang (6367m.) The Dudh Koshi river approaches as you pass a Mani wall and arrive at Ghat teahouse. You continue along a small path with many climbs and descents following the left bank of Dudh Koshi to Phakding.

Day 02: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440 m.) and it takes approximately five hours. The trail starts through a level path along the right bank. Thamserku looms skyward on the opposite bank. You cross a stream and climb the terraced hill from the Dudh Koshi route, to arrive at Bengar. The trail now climbs from the riverbed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. You continue along a path with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass by the tiny village of Monjo. Now, you descend the path of stone steps and return to the right bank over a wooden bridge. After a short climb you come to Jorsale’s teahouse and hotel, also stop at the National Park Service where a park entrance fee is collected. After your departure from Jorsale you enter a forested mountainside. You follow a short walk along the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river forks - the right is the Dudh Koshi and the left is the Bhote Koshi that leads to Nampa La. After short distance along the Bhote Koshi you begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, you will emerge at a ridge top rest area that offers excellent views of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m.) The climb eases somewhat, and Namche Bazaar appears ahead as you travel along the path surrounded by pines. Pass the plateau where the Saturday bazaar is held and enter the village. Namche Bazaar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi.

Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of lodges, tea shops and souvenir shops as well as a magnificent outlook. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization to the high altitude before heading off towards Tyangboche. For the acclimatization you walk up to Khumjung where you can visit monastery You can also enjoy the splendid views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawche, Kwangde and so on.
