Overview

Mt. Lobuche east peak 6119m, just above the Lobuche village lies north-west of Mt Pumori in Khumbu area. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuche East on 25 April 1984. Lobuche Peak is a potential for new climbers offering few existing routes to the summit climb. The dark triangle of its rocky East face rises over the moraines of the Khumbu glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. It is reached by descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the subsidiary snow summit top. The descending route is the same as the base camp. Views from the summit seen are great from Cho-Yu to Mt. Makalu including Mt. Pumori, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Everest, Mt. Ama Dablam and other peaks around.
