About Lobuche Peak (6,119 M)

Khumbu/Everest Region is hub of climbing activities. The region is rich in high altitude mountain peaks among them Lobuche 6,119m is one of the best climbing peak also considered as a trekking peak. During the month of Spring and Autumn are busy season. While climbing Everest some of the climbers choose to climb this mountain before starting acclimatization rotation in Everest. If a climber climbs Lobuche during Everest, it helps for better acclimatization for Khumbu Ice Fall climbing. The summit of Lobuche is similar to Everest Camp1. There is two summits, Lobuche East and Lobuche West. Lobuche East was first ascent by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on April 25, 1984. Since then hundreds of thousands climbers are ascending each year.

Proper climbing gears and equipment are most essential. And we suggest you to have one climbing Sherpa. However if you are professional climber it is also good to have 2:1 (Climber Sherpa) ration. If you are planning to climb Everest in Spring, you can add this peak in your bucket list for the better acclimatization.
