Lobuche East trekking peak climbing trip affords the opportunity to go high and practice our newly learned techniques from the previous training on the Cho La Glacier. Labuche East peak first attempt was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on 25 April 1984.
Lobuche Peak has two different summits Lobuche East (6,119m) and Lobuche West (6,145m). Between Labuche East Peak and Labuche west peak has sharp gap and a considerable distance. The Labuche East Peak is quite remarkable and is reached by descending into a marked notch and climbing steep snow/ice slopes to the top. The summit of Lobuche peak is exposed and often covered with moldy ice.
After we have finished our training, we will make the brief and beautiful trek to Lobuche East. Labuche east Base camp is located at 5,550m near a beautiful hidden lake at the base of the glaciated South-West Face.
From the northern end of the lake near base camp, we climb terraces and snow slopes below the main glaciers of the South-West Face and gain access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier. At the point where the glacier face and ridge meet we will establish our Labuche eas peak high camp.
From the high camp of labuche peak we will continue up the summit ridge. The route to the Labuche East Peak follows summit ridge north-west across several snow bumps along the way. The Lobuche east peak summit can reach with some difficulty by gaining the notch with a descent followed by steep snowy slopes climb to the summit of Labuche east peak. Climbing Clinic course held at base camp briefed and instructed by experienced mountain experts so that you acquire the necessary skills and confidence to achieve your goal.
