The leader of your expedition is a very experienced and qualified British, European, or American leader.
Note: Our leaders are not guides. They are there to coordinate the expedition and may or may not climb with you personally on the mountain. Our leaders will try to do everything they can to help you, but it is your responsibility to have the skills, strength, equipment, etcetera to do this climb. If you need more assistance, we encourage you to hire a personal sherpa. Please view our Lhakpa Ri/North Col leadership page for more about our leader, organizer, sherpas, and staff.
