Description

The Lhakpa Ri expedition is probably the best way to explore the Tibetan side of Mount Everest. During these five weeks we’ll follow the footsteps of George Mallory, who first led a reconnaissance expedition in 1921 in the area.

For the first days we’ll take it easy so we can connect to local culture. Then we will start a trek through amazing valleys, farms, moors and green meadows in direction to Everest Base Camp. We will walk through the ice pinnacles and cross the Rongbuk Glacier towards Rabu La from where we will have a privileged view of the main peaks of the Himalayas, Everest included. There is also the option of an avalanche rescue training day, surely the highest training you will ever take in your life.

After that we’ll continue towards the Advanced Base Camp in order to climb the famous Lhakpa Ri summit (7045 meters). It is probably the most achievable 7000-meter mountain in the world. Furthermore, the views extend everywhere, giving us a well deserved rest while enjoying the splendor of the Himalayas.

This trip is suitable for trekkers without too much climbing experience but with an excellent fitness condition. Keep in mind that although both the hiking and climbing are moderate to hard they’re not technically difficult.

I will apply my good local knowledge and expertise to make you live the best journey. In addition I can offer good quality hotels in the town as well as individual tents during the trek. As your mountain guide I’ll guarantee a safe and fun expedition. 

All you have to do is filling out the form and getting in touch with me to start with your booking. I am eager to guide you on this Lhakpa Ri expedition!

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Tshering, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).

I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.

I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet. I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.

I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!

Very helpful of explore share to reroute my trip to other guide. Very happy with Tshering Bhote guides! Only thing is we pushed to fast to summit. I think that was the reason we did not make it.

I had an amazing experience with Tshering’s experienced and highly qualified team including guide Sonam Shalaka and Sherpa Thomas Vechayba. I really enjoyed the concept of acclimating for Ama Dablam by doing the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes and climbing a number of peaks along the way, including Lobuche, rather than the typical repetitive climbs from base camp. It is always my preference to climb with local guides who intimately know the mountain and local customs and this was a perfect example of the benefits of that rather than going with a large group of westerners. Explore-Share always does a great job of facilitating those connections. This was an outstanding experience all around and I would gladly recommend Tshering and his team for any mountaineering experience in the Himalayas.

Very good acclimatisation program and safe 1:1 climbing as I always was well looked after. Communication regarding weather and conditions were meticulous so we could adapt as we went along, increasing safety.

Tshering prepared and organized the tour very professionally. All about logistic, difficult transport condition due to bad weather, skilled guide and assistant, and overall security was under his control. A good communication and a team spirit made the sucess of the Mera Peak ascent.

It was an absolutely AMAZING experience and Sonam is very professional, friendly and helpful. I will recommend him and Tshering 100%
