Lobuche Peak

Code: NPL-PC-LP
22 Days 21 Night

Description

Lobuche East is one of the trekking peaks opened for climbing in Nepal. It is situated at the above the Lobuche, which is just a day camp before trekking to the classical trail to Gorakshep and Everest Base Camp. Lobuche has two summits, east and west, heights of 6119m and 6145m respectively but we will summit to the East on our expeditions.

Among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Lobuche East is one of the most technical peaks climbing, even if it is only at the altitude of 6119m from sea level. Lobuche east climbing required a excellent uses of using expeditions styles of rope (Main and fix rope), climbing involves some step and slippery rocks slabs and snow slopes to reach south west ridge, which is just below the glacier, which is along with the high camp, then the final expeditions climb would be a sharp and exposed ridge which leads to the real summit. Depending on the seasons, the summit to the Lobuche east required climbing with angle of 70 to 75 degrees with some belayed snow or ice climbing, which is why it is most demanding.

You must be comfortable for the basic rock climbing and should have a basic knowledge of alpine climbing techniques of using rope climbing, ice axe and crampons and abseiling.
