Kathmandu Arrival Date: September 04, 2025
Expedition Fixed Departure Date: September 07, 2025

Mt. Lhakpa Ri, a high altitude trek and most attainable 7,045m. Peak in the world and an ideal objective, remarkably positioned just across the glacier from Everest. It shares the historic route up the East Rongbuk Glacier and is climbable by a relatively safe and straightforward route. It is just over the milestone altitude of 7,045m. making it higher than anything outside Asia and is probably the most climbable peak in the world. Mt. Lhakpa Ri is first climbed by George Mallory, who was on his way to the Everest reconnaissance in 1921 and he had seen the north col. The second ascent made by Bill Tilman during his Everest reconnaissance in 1936. The third ascent was made by French Everest summiteers Michelle Pella in 1988 and the fourth ascent made by Ken McConnell in 1991. The current expedition teams follow the same routes as the previous four expedition teams used in the past.

Our trek through valleys filled with ripening barley and herds of yaks to Everest Base Camp. A steady achievable trek through stunning glaciers and peaks to Advanced Base Camp and Lhakpa Ri which must be the world’s most achievable 7,000m. Peak. The ascent follows a shallow, snow-filled depression on the southwest flank, ascending low-angled snow for 6000m., which steeples at mid-height to around 30-35°. After gaining the crest of the ridge close to the Lhakpa La, we turn south and follow the snow ridge to the summit. This trip start from Kathmandu and drive takes you to Kyirong Bazar via Syabrubesi, after visa formalities work and meeting transportation at Timure, driving along the northern side of the Himalaya range with views of Mt. Shisha Pangma, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt Everest and numerous other peaks we will reach to Lakpa Ri Base Camp. After finishing expedition we will drive to back to Pasang Lhamu high way friendship bridge at Timure and continue drive back to Kathmandu for final departure.
