Lhakpa Ri (Xang dong Feng) [7045m/23,000ft.] is an attractive peak, which divides the upper East Rongbuk glacier and upper Kharta glacier. This pass is close enough to Everest to feel the enormous power and enchantment of the world’s highest mountain but is set far enough back to appreciate the true geometric perspective of this great peak.

Many of the world’s highest summit views are revealed from Lhakpa Ri. It gives amazingly unusual views of some of the world’s best-known mountains and excellent views of some very little known mountains. Amongst the highlights are the Nyonno Ri range in the eastern Tibet, the north face of Chomolonzo and Makalu and Pethangtse. You can also see the beautiful and little-known peaks of Shartse and the majestic Kangshung (east) face of Everest and the magnificent east face of Lhotse. There is an unrivaled view of the northeast ridge of Everest, the North Col, Changtse, Cho Oyu, and Shishapangma. You also have a chance to grasp the immensity of the Tibetan plateau that spreads comprehensively hundreds of miles across the wildest landscapes. Lhakpa Ri peak is considered as the most attainable 7000-meter peak in the world. The ascent can be accomplished by anyone who is fit, well acclimatized and highly motivated.

On the summit day you need to walk up a snow slope wearing crampons and using an ice axe but during the trip from base camp to Lhakpa Ri, we will have a plenty of opportunities to practice basic snow and ice travel. Those, who wish to acquire the techniques for correct glacier travel, will have plenty of opportunities to do so. The last 30m/100ft to the true summit is quite exposed but very easy and it will be safeguarded by fixed rope, which will prevent you from any casual falling.
