Labuste Peak Climbing (6119m)
Labuste Peak Climbing which is situated close to Khumbu Glacier in Everest Region, offers an attractive climbing summit with a variety of existing routes and wide scope for new lines. Labuste Peak is one of the popular trekking peaks in the Himalayan country of Nepal. The peak is an attractive summit and offers several trails for climbing.
Labuste peak has two summits, East and West with heights of 6119m and 6145m respectively. A continuous ridge connects them, but it is long and there is a considerable weight loss and gain. The East Peak is recognized as a trekking peak, whereas the West is known as an Expedition Peak. Labuste being an attractive mountain offers various existing routes and also the potential for new ones. The dark triangle of the rocky east face rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. Labuste East is reached by descending a marked notch and then climbing steep snowy slopes to the top.
From the summit, we have a great view of Mt. Everest, Amadablam etc., and a 360 degree Himalayan panorama that include all important peaks in the Khumbu Valley. This Labuste peak climbing is a beautiful climb with some technical challenges.
On most occasions, the mountain is climbed on the summit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, south–east of the true peak. The first ascent of Labuste East was made in 25 April 1984 although, it is possible that others had reached the summit before but did not record their climbs. To climb Labuste east, we follow the Everest base camp route to Gorak Shep, continuing to Kalapattar, at 5545m, because this offers great views of Everest and good acclimatization. It is also possible to follow the Gokyo valley and to cross the Chola pass, a route which is also good for acclimatization. Whichever, the route takes us place a Base Camp at Dzongla and a high camp at 5300m either at a lake or a little higher near a pass. This higher camp has a better view of the peak as well as of Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, and Makalu, Ama Dablam, khangtenga and Tawache Peak.
