Lobuche Peak climbing is a difficult climb when compared to other 'trekking peaks'. It is located in Everest region along with several other trekking peaks. Only the Lobuche, Kwangde and Kusum Kangguru are among the trekking peaks in the Everest Region that are considered to be technically challenging.
To climb Lobuche we hike along the Everest Base Camp trekking route across Gorakshep before reaching the Lobuche Peak Base Camp. While the Lobuche East is a easier climb and has been categorised as a 'trekking peak' the Lobuche West is a technically challenging climb and it has been categorised under the 'expedition peak' category.
