Abi Mountain Climbing is one of the Khumbu Himal Range’s attractive peaks. The mountain is also situated alongside the Mahalangur Himalayan range in Nepal’s Khumbu area in the south of Lobuche North. Abi Peak Expedition climbing requires a moderate level of ice climbing skills as there are a few technical sections on the ridges heading to the peak summit. But, for ice climbing, Abi Peak or Mt. Kangchung is also considered to be a perfect training peak. And much-needed acclimatization for climbers preparing to climb peaks above 8000 meters.
In addition, the trip includes a hike up to Gokyo-Ri for amazing views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu and other surrounding mountains. In addition, after reaching the Abi Peak Expedition Summit, we head to the crossing of one of the famous and challenging Cho La Pass at 5420 meters on our return journey.
