Lhakpa Ri - 7045m Climb - 23 days

Lhakpa Ri - 7045m Climb - 23 days

Lakpa Ri is located very close to Everest and North Col lies on the main route to the summit of Mt. Everest. Thus it provides great views. You would virtually follow the foot steps of George Mallory, who first set foot on the mountain in 1921 in his first Everest reconnaissance. From Lhakpa La Mallory saw the North Col and the upper East Rongbuk glacier that make a long sweep of the north ridge that leads the route from the North Col to the Summit. You have to ascend a steep snow and ice face to reach North Col. Actually it is a steep walk. All members are secured to a fixed rope. Sherpa climbers accompany you to the summit and back. After the summit of Lakpa Ri (7045 m) descend to the high base camp, and then to Rongbuk. The return journey travel back to Zangmu through same road. 

Best time to visit for the climb is April and May. Overland journey in Tibet is best from early May to middle of October. The snow condition in the high passes in the Himalayan in winter, and rain in the monsoon (July to August) are deterent factors for the overland journey in Tibet. We suggest you to avoid travel in the first week of May due to long holiday (May-day).

Nepali climbing Sherpa is basically a high altitude staffs to accompany and assist members in their climbing. He is not a tour guide nor a mountain guide by definition. He is a professional high altitude assistant who has been in the mountain several times and does the job for his livelihood. He should be considered as assistant to help member to show the trail and help prepare camps and other logistics arrangement. His English is adequate to the extent of normal communication but not very proficient in English or other foreign language as such. He does what he is instructed to do in normal circumstances. It is best to establish rapport with him and the base camp staffs in the very beginning of the expedition. They value friendship as one of the most important element in their life.
