Lakpa Ri Expedition - TibetMt. Lakpa Ri (Xang Dong Feng) expedition gives you an impeccable mountain climbing experience amidst the richly varied landscape. Lhakpa Ri towering over Tibet mountain range at an elevation of 7,045 meters, divides the upper East Rongbuk glacier and upper Kharta glacier. It lies in proximity to mighty Mt Everest boasting mesmerizing sights of Nyonno Ri range in eastern Tibet, the north faces of Chomolonzo, Makalu and Pethangtse, Shartse, Kangshung (east) face of Everest, east face of Lhotse, the north east ridge of Everest, the North Col, Changtse, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma as stunning backdrops of this expedition. Lakpa Ri ascent up this mountain is regarded as the easiest 7000 plus peak ascent. You make the ascent via the Everest Advance Base Camp.

Our Lakpa Ri mountaineering expedition start from Kathmandu to Lhasa flight with a leisurely stay in Lhasa having some days city sightseeing around, visit the legendary Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Norbulingka, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Market, Drepung Monastery etc. The journey continues further along Friendship Highway, with an adventure-packed leisurely 4WD drive via Lhasa- Shigatse- Xegar, Rongbuk and North Col Everest Chinese Base Camp. En route, you encounter monasteries, several 5000 and a bit over meter high mountain passes, nomadic settlements, pristine hamlets and nomadic herdsmen. Throughout this tour, the magnificent backdrop of the mighty Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Shisapangma and many other numerous peaks surround you.

The ascent follows a shallow, snow-filled depression on the southwest flank, ascending low-angled snow for 600m, 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. After finishing expedition we will drive to back to friendship bridge at Kodari and continue drive to back to Kathmandu.
