We follow the classical route of the Everest base camp Trekking; we take flight from Kathmandu to Lukla then continue up to Pheriche and then trek to Dughla. Lobuche peak base camp will be set up at 4,950m near a lake in a rocky hollow at the base of the glaciated South-West Face. You will have chance to explore an outstanding panoramic view of Mount Amadablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega peak and Tawache peak. We climb steep stone terraces and snow slopes just below the main glaciers on the South-West Face of Lobuche East. We climb steep snow and ice slopes using fixed ropes and get access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier where we fix the high camp.
Lobuche East peak is reached by descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top. On most occasions, the mountain is climbed on the summit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, southeast of the true peak and before the notch. This peak is identified as the false peak. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuje East on 25 April 1984 although there are possibilities that others have reached the summit before. But no records are available.
