Overview

Among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Lobuche East peak is regarded as one of the most technical peaks. Despite its altitude of 6000 meters +, climbing the top requires a climbing guide, along with the experience of using ice axes and crampons.

Lobuche east 6,119 m (20,075 ft) of Alpine PD + is a Seismil peak located in the Khumbu Valley of Nepal. A part of the greater Himalayas, Lobuche East is classified as a small peak. It is considered a more technical climb compared to other small peaks in Nepal.

Next to Lobuche East is Lobuche Far East, a new summit of Lobuche that is 26 meters shorter than the previous one. Other small popular peaks like Maximum Island, Mera Peak and Pokalde pride accompany Lobuche, all of which are considered good for climbing.

The first recorded ascent of this peak is surprisingly as late as 1984 by Laurence Neilson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa.
