Lobuche East (6119m) is located in the world famous Khumbu region of Nepal, and is considered one of the more technically demanding trekking peaks. Our route will take us over varied mixed terrain via fixed lines. Lobuche consists of two different summits, east and west with the heights of 6119m and 6145m respectively. A continuous rim ties them together, but there is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between these two summits. The east is recognized as a trekking peak whereas the west is identified as an expedition peak. The first to scale Lobuche East were Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyaljen Sherpa on 25th April 1984.
