The Himalayas mountain north col (7,020m) and Lakpa-Ri (7,045m) expedition are one of the most successful and technical mountains from the north ridge (Tibet), those who have previous mountaineering experience using crampons and ice axe. It is significant parts to all Everest climbers, where you will gain the mental strength and lay of the acclimatization base. North col looks extremely intimidating from a distance. Once you’re actually climbing its obviously very steeps but feels much more doable. The climbing could be best described as steep walking and climb, where fix the ropes all the way to the summit because of north cols is a mix of very steep and light sections and isn’t consistent at all.

Lakpa-Ri (7,045m) it is very near Mount Everest and one feels as equal to climbed Mount Everest the moment, one reaches on the top of this mountain. The climb itself is across easy-angled glacier then snow slopes which lead to the north ridge and summit. Which give you a life-long impression of Tibet and its people and an insight and deep respect for the achievements of the early Everest pioneers.

Eight thousand expedition leads via famous footsteps of Mallory and Irvine, included Lakpa-Ri expedition (7,045m), combining both expeditions, we make a suitable trip schedule for the trip by climb high and sleep lower and provide plenty of time to adapt to the lack of oxygen, that is the key to making a safe, successful and enjoyable journey with the enough and comfortable services. After weeks of preparation, our climbers lead you to make the adventure journey for north col & Lakap-Ri, even though, one of most favourites things about the north side climb is you can see the entire mountain, and the summit, always in view above us. This adventure you can get a misleading view of the entire route to the summit.
