Lobuche Peak is an exciting mountaineering expedition that offers various routes for climbing. The normal route is via its South Ridge. Lobuche consists of two summits, east and west, with the height of Lobuche East at 6,119m and the true summit of 6,145m. On this expedition we climb to Lobuche East. Reaching the true summit is complicated, and that summit is actually designated as an Expedition Peak.
