Grading, Difficulties, and Experience - Lobuche Peak Climbing

Lobuche Peak Climbing is a non-expedition summit yet requires a permit to ascend it. The western Lobuche Peak is more technical and challenging and is considered to be an expedition peak. On the basis of IFAS (International French Adjectival System) and Alpine Grading system, Lobuche Peak (Eastern) is graded as PD+ which indicates longer routes at altitude, snow, and ice slopes up to 45 degrees, complex glaciers, harder scrambling, belaying climbing and rappelling descent. Lobuche Peak (the eastern one) is technically straight forwards and can be attempted by all comers and people with less or no mountaineering knowledge and experience. Sherpa of Nepal experienced in climbing mountains including Mt. Everest, kindly supports all types of climbers in successfully ascending Lobuche Peak climbing in association with the Nepal Adventure Team. However, it still demands physical activeness and acclimatization to high altitudes. Nepal Adventure Team has listed the itinerary for the acclimatization of travelers. On the other hand, travelers have to be fit and physically active to ascend Lobuche Peak.

Namche Bazaar

Namche Bazaar is a tiny town at 3,440m / 11,286 ft is the final town of the Everest Region Trek. Namche Bazaar is located at Khumbu Pasang Lhamu in Solukhumbu District of Province 1, Nepal, and the Himalayan Region of Nepal as Nepal is divided into three regions: Himalayan, Hilly, and Terai. Though it is termed a town, it is a small village with less than 100 dwellings. It has the facilities and services of a bank, pub, bakery, various stores, trekking gear shops, and snooker pool at such a high altitude in the Everest Region so it is termed as a town. One can reach Namche from Lukla on a day but it is dangerous for visitors due to the high altitude however, locals usually do it.
