- One of the most popular trekking peak in Khumbu region.
- Technical to ascent.
Lobuche East Peak, an eye-catching trekking peak, is a great little challenge. Its South Face goes down to the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier. Lobuche East is ascended by moving up a marked notch hiking up steep snowy slopes. Most of the times, the peak is ascended on a ridge leading up to the summit.
Lobuche East peak will reward you stunning views of mighty Mt. Everest as well as many peaks in the Rongbuk region of Tibet. The ecstatic period you will get after scaling one of the famous Peaks in the Everest region will be a memorable experience, rewarded among others by stunning views. Other great mountains that you will witness are Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, and Mt. Makalu. On this trip you will also get several changes to sip tea with local sherpas and hear about their mountain adventures.
This peak is recommended to be done during Mar-June and Sep-Mid-Nov. We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic climbing experience, even of you are not experienced within mountaineering.
