Lobuche Peak Climbing is one of the toughest trekking peaks that commercial groups attempt. In the Everest Region (Khumbu) only Kwangde and Kusum Kangru are more difficult than Lobuche Peak Climbing. The main crest of Lobuche peak is Lobuche West which is not included in the trekking peak permit. Therefore, for a legal Lobuche Peak Climbing West (Main Peak) an Expedition Peak Permit is required which is considerably more expensive. For the ascent of Lobuche East (20075 ft, 6119 m 27 58 08N, 86 47 04S), good conditions and a dawn or pre-dawn start are recommended. But these timing for the Lobuche Peak Climbing depends on the size of the group and the strength of the group. Many groups require midnight starts for the final ascent.
The average gradient for the Climbing Lobuche Peak is not steep, but there are tricky seracs that require two axes, front pointing and belaying. The ridge route is sometimes easier. Many climbers who take this approach stop at the top of the ridge taking it to be the summit of Lobuche East, whereas it is simply a continuation of the knife-edged ridge that is roped to reach the true summit. After summiting Lobuche Peak, view from the top looks stunning in 360 degree. This is one of the most commercial trekking peak in Everest region with Island Peak. Lobuche Peak Climbing is bit harder than climbing Island Peak.The best season for climbing this trekking peak is in early autumn and in Spring. A lot of trekking company use this peak for acclimatizations during Everest expedition in spring season. This peak also under NMA, which makes lot easier to obtain peak permit comparing to other peaks under the government management. This peak is closer to the EBC trek route, which makes a lot easier in logistic part of peak climbing.
