At 7045 m, Mt Lhakpa Ri in Tibet is a superb objective for climbers looking for a 7,000 m summit in a famous location. Join for an incredible expedition!
This peak has an outstanding location, just across the glacier from Everest. It’s also one of the most easy to climb mountains over 7000 m in the world.
The climbing route to Lhakpa Ri is the same historic route that goes up the north east of Rongbuk Glacier. It’s a safe and straightforward route.
However, there are two different starting points to this expedition. We can fly to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, or drive from Kathmandu to Zangmu, in the border between Tibet and Nepal.
Once in Zangmu, we’ll need to drive towards Everest base camp.
I recommend this 28-day expedition to anyone with a good physical condition and a strong motivation. Besides, it’s very important to have a perfect acclimatization.
The itinerary to climb Lhakpa Ri is similar to the first part of the expedition on Everest North Ridge. You can find the complete programme below this description. However, I can adapt it according to your time and wishes.
This is a great opportunity to explore the beauty of Tibet and enjoy stunning views of the highest mountains in the world (Everest, Lhotse, Makalu).
We’ll be climbing together with Sherpas, which are experts in climbing 8000 m peaks in the Himalaya. And also be followed by caravans of the famous Yaks.
In addition to this, you’ll be able to visit ancient traditional towns in Tibet and spend a night at the highest farming town in the world: Tingri, at 4390 m.
Please contact me if you want to be a part of this unforgettable expedition in the Himalaya! I will be happy to discuss all the details with you (programme, logistics, preparation, equipment).
