It shares a common route with many others including the famous route of Everest Base Camp. Lobuche East and Lobuche West are the two main summits that make Lobuche. They are 6119m and 6145m tall respectively. Lobuche East is categorized as a trekking peak while Lobuche West is categorized as an expedition peak. They both need separate permits from Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Lobuche East is our destination for the trip.

As it shares a common route with the classic trekking route of Everest base Camp, it gives all the view and experience too.

Everest and Mt. Lhotse. It helps them to acclimatize to the environment and refresh their climbing skills.

Although, trekking peak, Lobuche must be well respected. Despite its relatively low altitude from other high mountains, it has a rough and rocky terrain.

Proper guidance and equipment can make difference between success and failure. Physical fitness is expected as part of the trip.
