If you can trek why not climb??

Friendship World Treks is the pioneers of the first mountaineering school for westerners in Nepal. Nepal is the perfect classroom clear skies, warm days and consistent conditions. We do not want to just lead you to the top of a snow - capped mountain. We want to teach you the skills to make you a competent team member of any future mountaineering expedition.

Who can join the courses???

This course is suitable for the complete novice or a good refresher course for those who want to climb again. You will have discussions on equipment. Weather, avalanches and mountaineering in general. You will have instruction on crevasse rescue, glacier travel, ice climbing, and snow craft. So even if you have climb before you will be having a full and comprehensive revision course on some of the most important skills in mountaineering.

What to carry while climbing??

You will need a small day sack to put an extra fleece in, camera, water bottle, and potentially your water proofs. That's all.

Who can join the courses?

This climbing course is suitable for the complete novice or as a Great refresher for those who want to climb again. The course Curriculum includes an introduction to equipment, ice climbing skills, rope work and comprehensive mountaineering safety techniques.

 

Lobuche: There are two distinct summits to Lobuje Peak - Lobuje East (6119m/20070ft) and Lobuje West (6145m/20161ft). Lobuje is an attractive summit, offering a variety of existing routes and a wide scope for new lines. Seen from near Pheriche, the dark triangle of its rocky East Face rises above

 

the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to an icy skyline. This skyline forms the South Ridge, the junction of the East Face with the glaciated South-West Face and the line of the normal route of ascent. This in turn leads to the summit ridge running northwest from the top of East Face through several small summits to the East Peak.

 

Lobuche East is the hardest of the trekking peaks that commercial groups attempt. In the Everest Region (Khumbu) only Kwangde and Kusum Kangru are more difficult. The main peak of Lobuche is Lobuche West and is not included in the trekking peak permit. Therefore for a legal climb to Lobuche West (Main Peak) an Expedition Peak Permit is required which is considerably more expensive. Now follows a description of Lobuche East (20075ft, 6119m 27 58 08N, 86 47 04S). Good conditions and a dawn or pre-dawn start is recommended. The average gradient for the entire climb is not steep, but there are areas of messy sears that require two axes, front pointing and belaying. The ridge route is sometimes easier. Many climbers who take this approach stop at the top of the ridge, thinking this is the summit of Lobuche East. But infect a continuation on the knife-edged ridge is needed (roped!) to reach the true summit.

 

Trekking- February to June, September to November.
