MT.DORJE LAKPAEXPEDITION

MT.DORJE LAKPAEXPEDITION

(34 NIGHTS/ 35 DAYS)

overview

OVERVIEW:
Mt. Dorje Lakpa(6,966m / 22,854ft.) is an attractive mountain in the Langtang region of Nepal. The pyramid shaped mountain can be seen vividly from Kathmandu. It rises to the east of the Langtang valley and south of the Mt. Shishapangma of Tibet. The white mountain is a popular summit for expeditions even though the risk of avalanches in the mountain is high. The first ascent up this difficult height was made via the west ridge by a Japanese expedition in 1960. Many Mount Dorje Lakpa expeditions returned without reaching the summit because of the weather challenges and technical difficulties during in the climb.

The Mt. Dorje Lakpa expedition begins at Dhunche and continues for days with rests during the nights at teahouses and lodges. Trekkers acclimatize at Kyangjin Gompa after a long trek along traditional Nepali villages, rhododendron forests, pine trees and farm lands. Novice climbers would need a trained guide to attempt the Dorje Lakpa climbing, as even experienced climbers go for technical climbing training before the attempt. There is a lot to learn and explore for trekkers climbing Dorje Lakpa. There are lesser chances of storms and avalanches during the spring and autumn season. The ecstatic pyramid is a vantage point for breathtaking views of the Kathmandu valley and the Himalayas surrounding it.
