LOBUJE (LOBUCHE) EAST 6119/20,070ft
Looking for an adventure in the Everest region of Nepal that offers a bit more than a trek to base camp? Lobuche East is rated as one of the more technical trekking peaks in this region, only Kwangde and Kusum Kangru are more difficult.
ROUTE - Lobuche
There are two distinct summits to Lobuje Peak- Lobuje East (6119m/20,075m) and Lobuje West (6145m/20,016ft). Although a continuous ridge connects them there is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. Lobuje is an attractive summit, offering a variety of existing routes and a wide scope for new lines. Seen from Pheriche, the dark triangle of its rocky East Face rises above the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to an icy skyline. This skyline forms the South Ridge, the junction of the East Face with the glaciated South-West Face and the line of the normal route of ascent. This in turn leads to the summit ridge running northwest from the top of the East Face through several small summits to the East Peak.
Participants will climb on snow and ice depending on conditions. The route will fixed by our Sherpa team and climbers will be required to tie in and climb with the use of the fixed lines.
