Lobuje peak climbing demands mountaineering in a professional and committed manner.Lobuche East peak (6,119m) is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal .There are various routes for climbing Lobuje East . The normal route for climbing is through the south ridge. Lobuche East peak consists of several small summits and the true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes to the top from the summit ridge. The approach trek to Lobuje East climbing follows the classic Everest base camp route up to Pheriche and then heads to Dughla .The base camp is set up near a lake below the south face at an altitude of 4,950m. The views of Amadablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega peak and Tawache peak are superb from the base camp. You will climb steep stone terraces and snow slopes just below the main glaciers on the south-west face of Lobuche East. You will climb steep snow and ice slopes using fix ropes and gain access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier where we fix the high camp. You will then follow the sharp snow ridge to the summit ridge. Next we follow the route north-west towards the main summit passing several small snow bumps and reach a notch. We will then further climb steep and quite difficult snow slopes to the true summit. The peak can be climbed from east face by climbing a dark pyramid of scabby rock and join the South Ridge to get to the summit.
