Locally known as “Lauche”, The Lobuche Mountain consists of two different summits, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East with heights of 6,119 m and 6,145 m respectively. A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a considerable distance between them. Lobuche Far East Peak is recognised as a trekking peak, whereas the Lobuche East is known as an Expedition Peak. Lobuche being an attractive mountain offers various existing routes and also a potential for new ones. The rocky East face of Lobuche rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. The peak of Lobuche East is reached by descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuche East on 25 April 1984 although there are possibilities that others have reached the summit before but no such records are available. During this expedition you can also enjoy the ultimate sherpa village, Namche Bazzar and some of the famous monasteries like Tengboche monastery and many more.
