Lhakpa Ri Expedition

Lhakpa Ri is the world’s most achievable 7000m peak. Surely the only way to experience the Tibetan side of Everest! This expedition reverses the route taken by Sir George Mallory on his reconnaissance expedition to Mount Everest.

Fly into Lhasa and soak up the culture. Trek through valleys filled with ripening barley and herds of yaks and goats to Everest Base Camp. The trip is a steady trek through stunning glaciers and peaks to ABC (Advanced Base Camp) and Lhakpa Ri.

The itinerary

We weave through the ice pinnacles and cross the Rongbuk glacier to Rabu La where you can peer over to the Kangshung face, Everest rarely seen Fantasy Ridge and the northern aspect of Makalu. There is the opportunity for what might be the highest-ever avalanche rescue training day. And of course we climb to the summit of Lhakpa Ri (7045m) where the views stretch all around, bestowing a well-earned rest while basking in the splendor of the Himalaya.

Is this trip suitable for you?

This trip is aimed at trekkers and those without (or with a little) climbing experience. Parts of the trail are quite rough. The trekking is moderate to hard and the climbing is strenuous but not technically challenging. A good level of fitness is the main prerequisite.
