Overview

Lobuche Peak (6,119m) is an adventure trekking peak which lies on the way to the world’s tough Everest Base Camp Trek. This peak was first climbed by the two-adventure climbing lover Mr. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa in 25th April 1984. After climbed by them, this peak is very famous for those who wants to take an adventure climbing experience in life. There are two major peaks to climb that is Lobuche East Peak (6,119m) and Labuche West (6,145m). Lobuche east is the most climbed peak than the Lobuche west in the Nepal Mountaineering Association of Nepal (NMA) record.

Lobuche peak is situated just above the Lobuche village which is very near from the world’s famous Khumbu Ice-Fall and Khumbu Glacier. So, if you join to climb Labuche peak, you first trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m) then hiking to Kalapattar (5,545m) which helps to acclimatize to climb Lobuche peak. At Lobuche base camp, there is not available for the tea house and hotels so you should have to eat and sleep in the tend for 2-3 days with our climbing crew members but don’t worry, we organize everything which is needed for us such as tea, coffee, soups, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Before ascending the Labuche peak, our climbing guide will be aware you how to use the climbing gears and the safety ideas. The Himalayan scenery on the top of Labuche peak is really amazing. You get yourself on the middle of the Himalayas including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Makalu and several neighboring angelic white hills.

About the high-altitude sickness

High altitude sickness is the major problem in the Himalayas in the world. I personally don’t recommend to trek and climb the peak if you have some problem such as heart, brain or deep injured body part, high blood pressure or so on. There are so many causes to become high altitude sickness while ascending in the Himalayas. The major problem is thin air with open body parts. If you maintain to eat foods, drink sufficient liquids, use warm clothes and walk slowly with maintaining the altitude then there is less chance to attract the high-altitude sickness. If attract the high-altitude sickness, there is only one idea to descend as soon as possible because mountain always wait us but not wait our life.

TIMS and Permit in Labuche peak climbing

Labuche peak is registered in the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) so every climber needs to take climbing permit. The permit rate is different between the season. If you climb Labuche peak in Autumn in September to December, you should have to pay US$150 per person and March to May & June takes US$250. The peak permit is issued by the Nepal Mountaineering association at Hattisar in Kathmandu. And also you should have to take Sagarmatha National Park Conservation Area Project permit and Khumbu Pashang Lhamu Rural Municipality permit too while trekking and climbing.

Best time to climbing Labuche peak

Labuche peak is the technical climbing peak which requires the medium climbing experience such as play with climbing gears and some technical knowledge about snow and ice. The best time to climb Labuche peak is in October, November & mid-December in autumn and April, May and June in spring season. These months are the perfect time to climb this peak because of its clean weather condition, powerful visibility and suitable temperature conditions. If you want, you can climb Labuche peak in December January and February but you must need to face the Himalayan coldness and sometime need to face the frostbite in feet’s & fingers.
