Have you read a lot about mountaineering and the Himalayas? Maybe climbed in Mexico or Ecuador. Alps? Cascades? Ever dreamt of going on a classic high altitude climb? How are your basic mountaineering skills? If you would like a shot at a 7000m peak next to the north face of Everest then our TIBETAN CLIMB is for you. This summer come with us to the remote Tibetan Plateau. Walk in the footsteps of Mallory, Irving, Shipton and Tillman. If you are fit, committed and lucky you have an excellent opportunity to stand on a summit 23,108 feet above sea level. From the summit of Lhakpa-Ri the view of the north face of Everest and the north face of Makalu is spectacular. You will be able to look across the Kangshung face of Everest to the east face of Lhotse. Also in view may be the North Col, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma. Turn around and take in the forever horizon of the Tibetan Plateau. The need to acclimatize will provide ample opportunity to practice the rest step and polish ice axe and crampon technique. On the north side of Everest the permanent snows rarely descend below 23,000 feet making Lhakpa-Ri one of the most straight forward high altitude peaks in the world!
