Lobuje Peak

Trip Duration 20 Days

Trip Grade:

Destination: Nepal

Activities: NA

Our objective is not just about summiting a Himalayan peak, although this is a major accomplishment in itself. We specialize in teaching you the necessary skills to become a competent expedition member. Nepals unique environment and consistent conditions provide the perfect classroom for our high altitude Himalayan School. A solid ratio of instructors to students guarantees you the personal attention required for a successful summit attempt. Lobuche Peak is slightly more technical as it has a few more steep sections.

Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first recorded ascent to Lobuje East on 25 April 1984. The mountain consists of two summits, East and West with heights of 6,119 m and 6,145 m respectively. A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them.

This Peak is recognized as a trekking peak, whereas the West is known as an Expedition Peak. The East face rises over the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. This course is suitable for the complete novice or as a great refresher for those who want to climb again. The course curriculum includes an introduction to equipment, crevasse rescue, ice climbing skills, rope work and comprehensive mountaineering safety techniques.
