Lobuche ( 6,119 m)

Lobuche (also spelt Lobuje) is a Nepalese mountain which lies close to the Khumbu Glacier. There are two main peaks, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East (often mistaken for Lobuche West which is a separate mountain further west). At 6,145 metres (20,161 ft), Lobuche East is 26 metres (85 ft) higher. Between the two peaks is a long deeply notched ridge. The first recorded ascent of Lobuche East was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on April 25, 1984.
