Description

Lhakpa Ri 7045m/23,113ft sometimes called Xang Dong Fengis a true Tibetan treasure. You can think of this 7000m peak as Everest’s little cousin. Its position on the North side of Everest allows for a wonderful opportunity to climb in the heart of the high Himalaya without exposing yourself to the commitment and difficulty of an Everest climb.

Lhakpa Ri has become one of the most popular 7000m peaks in the world. This is because of it’s easy accessibility as well as its proximity to world's highest mountain,The approach is via the Tibetan Plateau, passing the Rongbuk Monastery and onto Base Camp on the North side of Everest. This peak shares the same base camp as Mount Everest’s North Col route.

The caravan route to base camp is an unforgettable journey. Tibet offers some of the most stunning cross country driving in the world. You can sit back in the jeep, relax and take photographs as you get chauffeured right to base camp. The overland drive takes you through Nyalam, Thang La (5,200m) and Xegar (4,300m).

The climb begins from Everest North base camp (5200m/17,000ft), then a trek up the historic East Rongbuk Glacier following along the 'Magic Highway' to middle camp (5800m/19,028ft) this camp is also referred to as (deposit camp/interim camp/Japanese camp) The climb continues ontoadvancedbase camp (6350m/20,833ft) below the North Col, then continue onto the north col aka camp I (7000m/23,000ft) from here the climb splits off to the right and ascends a snowfield to the summit of Lhakpa Ri (7045m/23,113ft).

Overall the ground is moderate the entire climb is across easy-angled glacier and snow slopes.Mount Mania that for Lakpa ri expedition our clients have all of the previous experience required for 6000m peaks,very good physical fitness,no high blood pressure or diabetes, 2 (6000m) peaks, several high pass treks and formal rock &ice climbing training.

Our guides will fix the route as required from advanced base camp to the summit. For clients of various skill level a lot of this ascent can be done as a rope team rather than jumaring fixed lines the whole way. A section of 300m above ABC to the North Col requires a section of fixed rope. Mount Mania remains flexible and changes our tactics and style in the mountains depending on our clients’ needs. Overall, this expedition has the feel of being a tough trek at altitude. The Lhakpa RiExpedition culminates to an exciting summit push from Everest’s North col and promises those who are willing, an unforgettable experience in the Himalaya.
