Award from Lobuche Peak Climbing
The Lobuche East is a peak in the famous Khumbu region of Nepal near the Khumbu glacier standing with an elevation of 6119 m. Second of the two peaks of the same name, Lobuche East is one of the many ‘Trekking Peaks’ in the Everest region and common substitute for the Island peak for many climbers. Though the climb is simpler than that of other higher mountains in the region, it is still regarded as quite difficult amongst the trekking peaks; even requiring the climbers to learn some basics of technicalities necessary for the climb. Hence, for this reason, and the obvious challenge it gives by virtue of it, most of the novices at mountaineering chose this peak as their first experience.
Lobuche East peak awards the climbers with the spectacular views of the mighty Everest, the Lhotse, the Pumori, the beautiful Ama Dablam, and other smaller mountains. The trek to its base camp takes the popular Everest Base Camp Trek: through the great ethnic villages, beautiful pine forest, rugged pathways, high passes, etc. The trek to the Kalapatthar is particularly satisfying too. The trek promises a great deal of adventure and thrill to anyone fit and daring enough. It gives a lovely taste of euphoria of successful climb of a Himalayan mountain for any aspiring mountaineers or daring adventure trekkers choosing to scale it.
