Trip Overview:

Lobuche peak (6,119m/20,075ft) is a  small settlement near Mount Everest in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It is one of the last overnight stops with lodging on the "trail to base camp"—a hike that climbers make on their way to Everest Base Camp, when attempting an ascent of Everest via the standard southeast route. It is also a popular stop for trekkers, in the area. From there they can complete the trail on to EBC or stop at Gorak Shep, the last stop with lodging on the trail, and climb the modest nearby peak, Kala Patthar (5,545 m/18,192 ft), for a rare view of the Everest..Lobuche, elevation of about 4,940 m/16,210 ft), is situated about east of Nepal's capital Kathmandu and lies near the foot of the Khumbu Glacier, approximately 8.5 km SW of Everest Base Camp.

Lobuche is a particularly busy place each year in the season hundreds of porters, Guides and Sherpas from the region pass through Lobuche on their way to Base Camp. Many of them also move supplies, with the aid of yaks or other means, for various climbers and expeditions also traveling up the trail in preparation for the Everest as well as Labuche peak.The lodging accommodations at Lobuche are notoriously primitive, consisting mostly of stone huts with shared bunk dormitories. In recent years there have been some additions of more modern facilities and amenities including seven lodges providing 200 twin-bed rooms. Some lodges provide internet and oxygen services.

 Although the Lobuche peak climb is a bit more challenging than Island Peak climb, it is equally rewarding. For climb and trek you should be physical fit and basic knowledge about mountaineering.- From the summit point  you get significant  views of Everest as well as Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori.
