Trip Introduction:

Lobuche East Peak Climbing (6,119m) is an splended Himalaya trekking in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It lies close to Khumbu Glacier and the village of Lobuche. The peak was the first to summit by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on April 25, 1984 AD. There are two main peaks; Lobuche East and Lobuche Far East. There is a big crevasse between two separate Lobuche Peaks. Lobuche being a beautiful mountain offers various existing routes and also a possibility for brand spanking new ones. The dark triangle of its rocky East face rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier. It forms a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge.
