Lobuche peak is known as Lhauche among the locals. This attractive summit rises above the town of Lhauche which is just a few kilometer from Mt. Everest. There exists two distinct summits on this peak and your objective is to get on the 6,119m high eastern summit. Your climbing route on this peak is South Ridge. The recorded first ascent on this peak was by Laurice Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on 25 April 1984.
The peak being attractive offers various existing routes and also a probability of new ones. The dark triangle of its rocky east face rises down the moraines of Khumbu Glaciers to a pleasant skyline, forming the south face. Lobuche East is reached by descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top. On most occasions, the peak is climbed on the summit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, south-east of the true peak and before the notch. The peak is known as the false peak.
From the summit, you have a great view of Mt. Everest and a 360 degree Himalayan panorama that includes all important peaks in the Khumbu Valley.Trek to Dingbuche (4410m) (B, L, D)
