Lobuche Peak is one of the popular mountains in Nepal, located in the Khumbu region at an altitude of 6,119 meters.

For the best views of the Himalayas, head to Lobuche Peak. This peak offers stunning views of Mt. Everest and other peaks from a different perspective than that of neighboring peaks like Island Peak and Mera Peak. Lobuche is a great option for hikers with no experience under their belts looking for an added challenge as well as for those who want to do some climbing but don’t feel ready for more difficult routes yet.
The first ascent of Lobuche Peak was by a British expedition led by H. W. Tilman in 1955. They climbed via the north ridge, which was climbed for the first time by Tilman and C. Noyce.
Lobuche Peak is considered by many to be easier climb than its more famous neighbors, and it has been described as “a walk in the park.” The hike can take anywhere between four and eight days depending on how fast you go, but be careful: there are no guardrails along the way!
The first day starts with a hike up to Pheriche village (4,350 meters), then crosses through the Imja Khola Valley to reach Base Camp at 5,200 meters. From there, trekkers have 10 days to reach High Camp (6100 meters) before making their final push for the summit on the 13 day.
