Labuche East Peak


The Lobuche Mountain consists of two different summits known as Lobuche East [6,119m] and Lobuche West [6,145m]. A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. The West peak which has just been opened up by the NMA as a trekking peak offers several small summits and the true summit requiring a steep climb up snow and ice slopes to the top from the summit ridge. Lobuche West peak requires the use of crampons, ropes and ice axe to overcome the challenging sharp ridged and snow areas.

Difficulty level



These treks typically require you to do 6-7 hours each day over steep hilly terrain on usually rough trails but with no real extremes of weather. Treks in this category can include trekking to elevations of up to 5500m with daily ascends of around 400-700m.When trekking at higher altitudes, your body needs to adjust to lower levels of oxygen and this provides added physical challenge to the trek. It is important to be physically fit and to prepare your body by doing regular exercise prior to embarking on your trek. Previous hiking or camping experience is preferable.


Peak Climbing and Expedition

Although the climbing expeditions do not require you to be an athlete, you must be fit and healthy before embarking on the expedition. Training and equipment for technical elements are provided.

Note that you should be able to follow the regime for several consecutive days
