Lobuche East Peak which lies on the Khumbu region is considered one of the challenging trekking peaks. There are two summits to Lobuche peak: Lobuche east (6119 m) and Lobuche west (6145 m). Although they are connected by a continuous ridge there is a sharp gap and the considerable distance between them. Lobuche East peak offers various climbing routes. Seen closely from Pheriche, the dark triangle of its rocky east face rises above the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to an icy skyline. This skyline forms the south ridges, the junction of the east faces with the glaciated southwest face and the line of the normal route of ascent.
Lobuche East Peak offers breathtaking views of the Amadablam and Taweche. This particular climb is technically difficult and quite steep at times engulfed in snow-ice slopes, which requires climbing equipment such as crampons and fixed ropes. After the summit, you have to continue trek towards Gorak Shep and climb Kala Patthar (5545m), up to enjoy an impressive close-up view of Everest (8848 m), Ama Dablam (6856m), Kantega (6809m), Kwangde (6194m), Nuptse (7879m), and Lhotse. From here you make a steady approach en route to Tengboche, a wonderful location with a spiritual monastery, where you can observe monks and prayer flags flapping in the skies and get enchanted by this fascinating age-old tradition and culture.
