The ascent of Peak Lobuche begins from Pheriche. Pheriche provides a stunning view of mountains in the Khumbu region. You follow the path to Everest Base Camp until you reach Gorakshep and if time avails, you can walk up to Kalapatthar to see magnificent views of Mt. Everest, the highest peak on the planet. As an alternative, you can go up to Gokyo valley and move over Cho-La Pass to reach Lobuche Base Camp, located below its South-West face.
As soon as you reach Louche Base Camp, you begin to see unparalleled views of Ama Dablam, Cho-Latse, Thamserku and Tawache Peaks. There are two summits of Lobuche lying on the same ridge, but are separated by several summits of other smaller peaks. The number of ups and downs and variation in altitude is great. Your next stop is a camp at a higher altitude, reached by climbing steep icy slopes. The summit is attempted from the higher camp itself.
An ascent up to Louche needs a climbing permit, decent mountaineering skills and a full range of climbing equipment. The peaks of Nepal are scaled by a huge number of climbers each year, and Lobuche is no exception. It tests your skills, your passion for mountaineering and your spirit of adventure.
