Lobuje Peak Climb (6,090m)

Lobuje Peak Climbing

A physically demanding trek up Lobuje East, one of Nepal’s highest trekking peaks, with dazzling summit views of Everest, Cho Oyo, Nuptse and Lhotse. 

Situated in the Everest region and standing at a height of 6,119 m, Lobuje East is one of two distinct summits that form Mt Lobuje. A long, continuous ridge joins Lobuje East to Lobuje West [6,145 m] and though essentially connected, a sharp gap and a considerable distance lie between the two summits. While Lobuje East is considered a trekking peak, an expedition permit is required to summit Lobuje West, classified as an Expedition Peak. 

 Lobuche can be clearly seen from Pheriche, en-route to Everest, the rocky East face of Lobuje rises over the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier forming an icy skyline – the South Ridge, the junction of the East Face with the glaciated route of ascent. This in turn leads to the summit ridge running north-west from the top of the East Face through several small summits to the East Peak.

The first recorded ascent of the true Lobuje East was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyaljen on 25 April, 1984. Due to the technical experience required to climb the steep snow/ice slopes that lead to the true East Peak, most ‘trekking’ ascents are to the summit ridge only, as far as the subsidiary snow-summit. This is a demanding, high-altitude trek that will appeal to experienced trekkers and keen hill- walkers. You will need to be in good physical shape to realistically be able to summit the peak. No prior mountaineering experience is required. An introduction to equipment as well as training in crevasse rescue, basic ice-climbing skills, rope-work and mountaineering safety will be given prior to the ascent.
