Lobuche comprises of two major peaks; Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East. Along with the two peaks, the course also offers you surreal views of other mountain peaks too such as the Everest [8,848m/29,029ft], Lhotse [8,516m/27,940ft], Nuptse [7,861m/25,791ft], Ama Dablam [6,812m/22,349ft] and Pumori [7,161m/23,494ft].

However, the climb is demanding and requires a strong mindset before the climb. The steepness varies with season, and can get more difficult at times. The good news is, most of the previous climbers have completed their journey perfectly, and have wished for higher and more challenging climbs from their upcoming visit to Nepal. The course gets pretty exciting when Lobuche [4,940m/16,207ft] is reached through the alarming Gokyo valley and you enjoy absolutely mesmerizing views of the surrounding environment from Gokyo RI [5,350m/17,552ft] across the famous Cho La Pass [5,420m/17,782ft] on the southern region of Everest.
