LHAKPA RI TREKKING - Mt. Everest North Face 


Climb Lhakpa Ri - spectacular peak near Mount Everest...  ...

The trek will start from the Rongbuk Valley, continued up to the Camp 3 and further to the ascent of Lhakpa Ri (7045m).

The summit offers the views of world's greatest mountains. Amongst the highlights are the Nyonno Ri range in eastern Tibet, the north face of Chomolonzo and the north faces of Makalu and Pethangtse. You can also see the beautiful and little known peak of Changtse and the frightening Kangshung (east) face of Everest and the magnificent east face of Lhotse.

There is an unrivalled view of the north east ridge of Everest, the North Col, Changtse, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma. You also have a chance to grasp the immensity of the Tibetan plateau as you can see hundreds of miles across the wildest of landscapes.

 What they said 

"Early morning mist lifted quickly and the first snowy peaks appeared. We set off early and rested near the river before the steep ascent onto the terrace above the, where we were to trek. The meadow floor was carpeted with flowers, with dewdrops glistening in the bright morning sun. The sun's reflection on the river, the array of colours, the snowy peaks in the background, these were experiences I shall never forget." 
- Says Edwin Gruber who did trekking to Mt. Everest North Face with us in 2003.
