Lobuje Mountain Expedition

Lobuje Mountain Expedition

(18 NIGHTS/ 19 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Lobuje(6,119m / 20,075ft.) also spelt Lobuche, is a one of the prominent six-thousanders in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The mountain has two peaks; Lobuje East and Lobuje West, and both of the peaks are popular for trekking and expeditions. The first ascent to the Lobuje east was made in 1984 and the Lobuje West was first successfully concurred in 1955. The Lobuje East peak is climbed more frequently than the west peak. The Lobuje west peak is also referred at Lobuje Far East by tourists.

The Lobuche Peak trekking begins from and ends at Lukla, and it is challenging and extremely adventurous. The Lobuche Peak (6119M) trek includes visiting the famous Namche Bazaar and resting at teahouses and lodges for acclimatization. The expedition then proceeds to another popular site, which is the Kala Pathar, at an altitude of 5,643m. The moraines of the Khumbu Glacier, the pristine forest and view of breathtaking landscapes are the other attractions of the trek to the spectacular Lobuche east peak. Climbers opting for the Lobuche Peak climb in Nepal should be physically fit and have some experience of climbing a 6,000m peak for the expedition approval to be processed.
