Lobuche peak is one of the popular trekking
peaks in Nepal. The peak is an attractive summit and offers various routes for climbing.
The normal route for climbing is through South Ridge. The peak consists of several small
summits and the true summit requires climbing steep snow and ice slopes to the top from
the summit ridge.
We follow Everest base camp trek route up to
Pheriche and then trek to Dughla. The base camp will be set up at 4,950m. near a lake in a
rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated South-West Face. The views of Amadablam and
Tawache are superb from here. We climb steep stone terraces and snow slopes just below the
main glaciers on the South-West Face of Lobuche East. We climb steep snow and ice slopes
using fix ropes and get access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier
where we fix the high camp.
We follow the sharp snow ridge to the summit
ridge. Then we follow the route to north-west towards the main summit passing several
small snow bumps and reach a notch. Then we 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 slabby rock and join the South Ridge to get to the summit.
