Labuche Peak (6,119m) Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek

Overview

Labuche Peak Climbing offers the best view of mighty Everest, as well as several peaks on the Tibetan side of the Rongbuk. It’s an experience you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Labuche Peak Climbing is a perfect challenging addition for a visit to the Everest Region. We at Community Trek have plenty of experience with this mountain and would be keen to take you on this adventure. The peak is technically not too challenging for climbers with some experience but no mountain should be underestimated with the usual dangers arising from altitude, exposure and weather conditions.

On the way to Summit.

Lobuche Peak Climbing has two different summits –Lobuche East Peak (6119m) and Lobuche West Peak (6145m) connected via a knife-edge ridge. Base Camp is located to not far from the Lobuche village to the south. The peak dramatically towers over the village and is easily identifiable from the Everest trail.

Labuche Peak Climbing goes via the Everest trail from Lukla, after a short 35-minute flight from Kathmandu. We make our way through various Sherpa villages towards Namche Bazaar – the key trading town of the region providing access to the higher valleys. We continue to the famous monastery Tengboche (Tyangboche) on the way to which we should get our first view of Everest and Lhotse. We continue all the way to Gorak Shep (5125m) as part of the acclimatization phase. We then take on Kalapattar (5540m), a satellite peak of Pumori, for a classic view of Mt. Everest and the Khumbu Icefall. We can visit Everest Base Camp which is only a short hike away. We then return to Lobuche where we pick up supplies and trek to base camp (5200m). Allowing for a further two days of acclimatization, we then start the climb along the South Ridge to the summit (6119m).

Labuche Peak Climbing offers you the best views from the base camp, the climbing route and ultimately the summit are superb. The summit ridge offers a 360-degree panorama of the region including Amadablam, Pumori, and Everest. Certainly an unforgettable experience!

Your guides for Labuche Peak Climbing will be the ultra-experienced Sherpas, many of whom have scaled other peaks including Everest. We run our climbs with 2 climbers to 1 guide ratio to ensure that everyone makes it to the summit or has a chance to try even if members of the group have different pacing.

Upon your request, we can also offer only base camp service (including the climbing permit) where the climber may arrange all required logistics for any part of the climb above base camp. The package can be flexibly adjusted to your requirements – feel free to contact us at any time for suggestions and advice. We’d be happy to take you on this adventure.
