Lobuche (English: Lobuche, also spelled Lobuje) is a mountain in the Himalayas with a height of 6,119 meters above sea level. It is located in Nepal, in Solukhumbu district of Koshi province, on the territory of Sagarmatha National Park, near Khumbu glacier.

The mountain has two main peaks: Lobuche West (6,145 meters) and Lobuche East (6,119 meters). A long snow-capped ridge is located between the two peaks. Lobuche West is considered as an «expedition peak», while Lobuche East is considered as a «trekking peak».

In the fall of 2022, the first Kyrgyz national expedition to the Himalayas conquered Manaslu peak (height — 8,156 meters above sea level).
