There are two summits in Lobuche Peak, Lobuche East (6,119m ) and Lobuche West ( 6,145m). From the West, Labuche is seen as a triangle of a rocky face. Its east face rises above the Khumbu Glacier to a skyline panorama that includes the Everest mastiff. The two Lobuche peaks are connected by a continuous lower ridge of considerable distance. Lobuche offers a variety of existing routes and, as well, offers opportunities for attempting new lines up. Himalayan Vacation Treks and Expedition’s climbing guide and team’s experience of Lobuche will provide dependable support fo whichever Lobuche climb one wishes. Few climb Lobuche East, as the ascent involves steep snow fields. Most climb Lobuche West.
After flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, the HV Treks’ Expedition guests will stay overnight in lodges until the Lobuche Base camp is reached. From the base Camp, the summit is reached in two days. So, it is necessary to pack in food for only the two days spent at the Base Camp, and the HV Treks and Expedition staff and guests will cook and eat together as a team, insuring efficiency and comradeship.
