Lobuche is a different climbing peak; it has the potential to grip you, and you will find it backed up for many reasons. It is said that Lobuche is popular; many climbers climb it every year. It lies in the Everest Region, and everybody wants to trek in this region when they plan to make their holiday adventure. Lobuche lies close to Everest, and what could be the greatest highlight to you than this? Lobuche is easy to climb, but do not underestimate its height, after all, it is a snow-covered mountain. Where there is snow at such an altitude, there are many unexpected things from adventure to easy climbing route. Lobuche is not all about these; it is also about reaching its summit, and the summit of Lobuche is the best vantage point that becomes the main reason and that boosts the spirit of the climbers every time they look at it.
There are few mountains in the world that have 2 summits, and Lobuche is one such. Climbers are hungry to reach the summit. But which summit? Lobuche East Summit or the Lobuche West Summit. The summit always matters because it is the top of the world. What happens to your heart when this summit shows you the view of the one and only Everest? The summit also shows you the view of the mountains that are on the Tibetan side. At the same time, the summit becomes rewarding by showing you the view of Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori. The summit is the highest feature of the mountain from where you will experience that closeness that you can ever get of the world’s highest and the world’s most beautiful mountain. To reach the summit is a short activity, but the way it offers you is a life-long impression.
