Lobuje peak climbing demands mountaineering in a professional and committed manner.Lobuche East peak (6,119m) is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The approach trek to Lobuje east climbing follows the classic Everest base camp route up to Pheriche and then it heads to Dughla.The base camp is set up near a lake below the south face at an altitude of 4950m.
