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!
