Labuche Peak

Lobuche Peak is the one of the most difficult trekking peaks to climb. Very few climbers attempt to reach the summit, which is a continuation of a knife-edged ridge scrambling to a glacier that leads to the summit ridge. The average angle for the entire climb is no very steep, but the route at the top has extremely snowy slopes that require a rope. A fall while climbing this part would be fatal. There are some existing routes for the climb that require two axes, front pointing and belaying. The 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.

The views of Amadablam, Cholaste, Thamserku, Kantega Peak and Tawache Peak are majestic. You'll climb steep stone terraces and snowy slopes just below the main glaciers on the south-west face of Lobuche East. You’ll then climb steep, icy slopes using fixed ropes to get access to the ridge overlooking Lobuche and the Khumbu Glacier where we set up high camp. You’ll then follow the sharp snow ridge to the summit ridge.
