Overview

ADVENTURE IN EVEREST VALLEY WITH LOBUCHE EAST PEAK CLIMBING

Lobuche East Peak, a hidden pearl of Himalayan climbing adventure, rises majestically above the village of Lobuche just a few kilometers away from Everest, yet it is ignored by many climbers. Even if they discover Lobuche Peak, most of the climbers manage to reach only the false summit of Lobuche East Peak and turn back overwhelmed by the summit ridge.

Lobuche East peak is visible from many angles but it is dwarfed by the scale of surroundings. It looks quite meek from distance but this is very deceptive. In fact, it is surprisingly a spectacular and challenging climb, yet very safe and accessible to beginners.
