Lobuche Peak has its two different summits, one is Lobuche East Peak (6119m) and the other is Lobuche West Peak (6145m).
The route of Lobuche Peak climbing starts from Lobuche village via South bear and South Ridge. Both the Peaks of Lobuche are dramatic and very similar in geometry, forming three-ridged pyramid on each. They dominate the view from the Everest Base Camp trek while approaching Lobuche village located at the base of the Southeast shoulder of the Lobuche East Peak. The South and Southeast Ridges form a typical rock triangle extending to the Khumbu Glacier sideways moraine and easily identifiable from the trek and in particularly from the hill with stone memorials.
