Mt. Lhakpa Ri expedition provides a tremendous opportunity to sample the delights of Tibet and the Himalaya including time in Lhasa and Kathmandu. We approach Base Camp by travelling along the old Silk Road from Kathmandu, returning via Lhasa and its many Monasteries.The ascent from Base Camp follows in the historic footsteps of Mallory and Irvine, snaking its way up the East Rongbuk Glacier between the many ice pinnacles to Advance Base Camp from where we launch our summit bid. Approaching Lhakpa Ri Middle Summit Lhakpa Ri, although tough on the lungs is arguably the most ‘climbable’ 7000m peak in the world, whilst giving the most awesome views of the mighty Everest. This exciting expedition will ideally suit those who have climbed, for example, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus or Mera Peak and provides a far better chance of success than, say, attaining the summit of Aconcagua. The summit provides tremendous views of Makalu, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, Lhotse and, of course, Everest and the enormous Kangshung face.
