Lobuche peak lies near Khumbu Glacier with two main Peaks Lobuche East and Lobuche West.West of the lodges of Lobuche, the rocky east face of Lobuche Peak climbing stands sentinel over the route to Everest Base Camp. Named after a Sherpa god, the true summit has proved an elusive goal. The rocky outliers of the peak were first climbed by the Swiss in 1952. Subsequently, numerous attempts have fallen short of the actual summit. Which rises above a profound notch at the far end of a long northwest and southeast aligned ridge. It is possible the first ascent waited until April 1984 when the south ridge was climbed to the main ridge and followed over several false tops to the true summit. Lobuche peak climbing is one of the most popular climbing in Nepal. This trek lies in the Everest region.

From top of Lobuche, Climbers will have great view of Lhotse, Everest, Ama Dablam and and more 6000 meters above peaks. It is one of the more challenging and tough climbing peak of Khumbu region.

The east face of the mountain, easily accessible from Lobuche village, has attracted strong teams. Jeff Lowe, a pioneer on many Trekking Peaks, has added a difficult route up icy couloirs. Whilst the obvious East Ridge was climbed by Todd Biblier and Catherine Freer. Undoubtedly both routes are difficult. Without a doubt, host of challenging possible lines remains.

Here we can rest before making the steep climb to Tengboche. Although the hike up the zigzag path is tiring, it presents us with many beautiful sights of rhododendron bushes with beautiful birds and superb mountain scenery.
