Lhakpa Ri Expedition

Lhakpa Ri, being one of the easiest ascents that goes beyond 7000m, not only presents itself as one of the undemanding expedition but also with an opportunity to trek in the footsteps of George Mallory, early Everest pioneer. Mt. Lhakpa Ri has more to offer with its glorious mountain vistas and a chance, often rare, to gain a deep insight and life-long impression of Tibet and its people. Lhakpa Ri mountaineering expedition gives you an impeccable mountain climbing experience amidst the richly varied landscape. Lhakpa Ri, towering over Tibet mountain range at an elevation of 7,045 meters, divides the upper East Rongbuk glacier and upper Kharta glacier. It lies in proximity to mighty Mt Everest boasting mesmerizing sights of Nyonno Ri range in eastern Tibet, the north faces of Chomolonzo, Makalu and Pethangtse, Shartse, Kangshung (east) face of Everest, east face of Lhotse, the north east ridge of Everest, the North Col, Changtse, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma as stunning backdrops.

The summit is a prominent three-sided pyramid which drops to the East Rongbuk Glacier to the west, the Kharta Glacier to the east and falls steeply to a tributary glacier of the Kangshung to the south. The slopes from the Rongbuk an Kharta Glaciers are relatively low angled and are linked by the Lhakpa La pass (6,849m), which is just to the north of Lhakpa Ri. It was from this pass, in 1922, that Mallory and his team mates first saw the East Rongbuk Glacier, an event well documented in mountaineering annals.

Owing to its easy ascent and altitude that goes up to 7000 meters while enjoying proximity with Mt. Everest, Lhakpa Ri has become one of the popular choice when it comes to climbing peaks. Besides summiting the mountain, travelers also enjoy the magnificent company of Lhotse and Makalu apart from Everest among others. Your adventure begins from Lhasa where you get an opportunity to explore the city and acclimatize at the same time. You then drive to Everest Base Camp from where your climb begins. You encounter several monasteries, high mountain passes, nomadic settlements and herdsmen en route with breathtaking Himalayan panorama for your backdrop.  So if you wish to bask in the splendor of Tibetan Himalayas and seek your next adventure in the ‘Roof of the World’, Lhakpa Ri Expedition might just be what you have been looking for.
