Abi Peak Climbing is one of the attractive peaks that form the Khumbu Himal Range. The peak is also located in the south of Lobuche East along with the Mahalangur Himalayan range in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Climbing of Abi Peak Expedition does need a moderate level of ice climbing skills as the ridges heading towards the summit of the peak consists of a few technical sections. But, Abi Peak or Mt. Kangchung is also considered as a perfect training peak for practising ice climbing. And acclimatization much needed for climbers planning to climb peaks over 8000 meters.
Besides, the trip also includes a hike up to Gokyo-Ri for breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu and other surrounding peaks.

We had a great experience with Everest Tour Nepal, everything went off without a hitch! We will definitely use them again if we find ourselves travelling in Nepal!
