Lobuche East Peak is one of the most popular 6000m peaks ideal for aspirant mountaineers. The first ascent to this wonderful peak was made by Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa on the 25th of April, 1984. Since then it has been a top choice for climbers aiming for 8000m as it allows an adequate opportunity for acclimatization while also offering enough practice with gears and equipment in the ice, snow, and rocks. Besides, keen adventure seekers choose this peak to fulfill their dreams of mountaineering with adventure.
The major feature of the Lobuche East Peak is that it is an introductory peak to Himalayan Climbing which is doable in a comparatively shorter period of time.

Lobuche East, however, distinguished from Lobuche West Peak by a long, deeply notched ridge, is more popular and more often climbed than the Lobuche West Peak.
