Short History of Lobuche East Peak
The standard route to climb Lobuche East Peak is the Southeast Ridge. This route gained popularity after mountaineers Mr. Laurice Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa successfully reached the summit of the Lobuche East Peak from this route on April 25, 1984, around 1 pm. The South and Southeast Ridges form a peculiar rock triangle that extends from the summit to the Khumbu Glacier.

Is This Lobuche East Peak Climbing Right For You?
- Since you will be spending most of the days at higher altitudes, the weather can be unstable. It can also affect your adventure and may likely put it to a halt. You need to make sure that you fully consider the time of the year you wish to take on this climbing adventure. The trail conditions and scenic views around the landscapes vary between seasons.
- For more than a week, you will have to walk for 4 to 8 hours, excluding the climbing of the Lobuche East Peak. Therefore, make sure that you are ready for the challenges you may have to face throughout the trip. If you have been practicing some kind of climbing and hiking exercises prior to the journey, it would be helpful.
- Our properly planned itinerary awards you even more sightseeing of the youngest mountains in the world. It allows an ample amount of time apart for adapting and acclimating to the altitude.
- The tea houses accommodating you during the trekking period are pretty standard, with only basic facilities. Access to electricity to charge your electronic devices will cost you some extra bucks. On the other hand, Wi-Fi service will be available at a few locations, but connections will not be to the par. However, you can manage all the advanced facilities while staying in the 3-star hotel at Kathmandu.
- The most important part of the expedition includes the scaling of Lobuche East Peak. The climb is not that challenging; however, it is somewhat more difficult than Island Peak Climbing and Mera Peak Climbing. Therefore, having prior climbing experience is a bonus to complete this expedition successfully.
- The expedition includes several days of accommodation over 3000 meters, where there is the risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). You may notice shortness of breath accompanied by the mild headache, but your guide will make sure you walk slowly and steadily to let your body adapt to the thinning air.
- You don’t have to worry about the worst-case scenario as our Sherpa guides will provide first-aid and emergency medicines to assist you. In extreme cases, we will rescue you using a helicopter. If you are uncertain about your physical ability, you need to inquire for some medical advice from the doctors before booking this campaign.
