The awe-inspiring peak of Mt Lobuche consists of two separate summits, to the east (6,119m) and west (6,145m). A continuous rim around ties them to one another, but there is a sharp gap and a considerable distance between the two summits. The east is commonly regarded as the trekking peak whereas the west is synonymous with expeditions. The first team to scale Lobuche east peak was Mr. Laurence Nielson and Mr. Ang Gyaljen Sherpa on 25th April 1984. The east peak is attractive to trekkers as it offers an abundance of existing routes and possibility for new ones. The dark triangle of its rocky east face rises down the moraines of Khumbu Glaciers to a pleasant skyline, forming the south face. Lobuche East is reached by descending a marked notch and climbing up steep snowy slopes to the summit. Most commonly the peak is climbed on the summit ridge as far as the subsidiary snow summit, south-east of the true peak, before the notch, this is known as the 'false-peak'.
