Lobuche East peak is one of the popular and challenging trekking peaks in the Everest region will be followed by the classic Everest route,Gokyo lake, Cho-La pass, Everest Base Camp and then to Lobuche East Base camp. After everyone ready for the ascent we start as early as possible gaining the south ridge as angled rock leads onto the first snow, then we follow this arête as it snakes its way to join the summit ridge. Lobuche is ideal as a last big trekking peak challenge, as it offers a series of tops all along the ridge. The summit gives fantastic views over the whole of the Khumbu and in particular, of Everest itself. We descend by the route to Tyangboche and then to Lukla.
