Lhakpa RI Mountain is the recently becoming well-known expedition in Tibet. Lots of climbers have been attracted to climb this Mountain through the Tibet side. It is very close to Mount Everest and you feel as alike to be climbed Mount Everest at that moment when you will get in touch with the top of this mountain. It was first climbed by George Mallory who was on his way to the Everest research in 1921.Bill Tilman made the second ascent during his Everest exploration in 1936. The Third ascent made by French Everest Summiteers Michelle Pelle in 1988. The Fourth ascent by Ken Mc Connell in 1991. The present expedition teams are also using these same routes as the previous four expedition teams had used in the past.

The Expedition starts from Kathmandu- Zhangmu-Nyalam-Tingri and Everest Base Camp (Lhakpa RI Base camp) 5200m. After that you have to spend a few days for acclimatization. After this base camp, you should start your expedition ahead towards the Middle camp 5780m, with the preparation of loading yaks and expedition crews. Then you have to take a night's rest in this middle camp. Continuing ahead to this track you reach at the Advance Base camp, which is situated at the height of 6400m. We have to take a night's rest in this middle camp. Continuing ahead to this tract we reach at the Advance Base Camp. After this at this, point you may feel some altitude sickness; and in case of this you should take a couple of day's rest there. After that climbing up ahead you reach almost at the level of East Rombuk Glacier to the Rophu La from where fantastic views of Makalu & Kanchnjunga are seen. Then you get a superior look of your route up to the Lhakpa RI From Advance Base Camp, start early in the morning and you should go crossing the Rongbuk glacier. There are few crevasses and slopes from the Rongbuk and Kharta glacier and they are relatively low angled which are linked by the Lhakpa pass 6848m; and it is just to the North of Lhakpa RI until you reach at the very foot of the slope, leading to you to the North ridge of the Summit. The routes are 20 –30 degrees vertical elevations. We have use main rope with a group of 4-6 climbers per rope. Following the way of the North ridge on the other side we see Kharta glacier and the views of North Col of Everest. The same way of the ridge leads up to the Summit of Lhakpa RI. From of the Lhakpa RI, the very beautiful views of above the 8000m High Mountains are visualized and also the best panoramic views of small mountains.
