Mt. Lhotse ExpeditionMt. Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Its long east-west crest is located immediately south of Mount Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are connected by the South Col, a vertical ridge that never drops below 8,000 meters. It is considered an independent mountain. It was first climbed by Mr. Ernst Reiss & Fritz Luchsinger of Switzerland on May 18, 1956 via West Face route. An impressive ring of three peaks makes up the Lhotse massif: Lhotse East or Middle 8,413m., Lhotse & Lhotse Shar 8400m. The South Face of Lhotse is one of the largest mountain faces in the world. We attempt to climb the normal route to the tallest peak of the Lhotse massif. Lhotse Base Camp is located beside the Khumbu Glacier, same as Everest Base Camp as well as closed to Island Peak (Imja Tse).

Mt. Lhotse ExpeditionThe section during the climb, which has been unanimously declared the most dangerous, is the Khumbu Icefall. The South Face though attempted many times was successful climbed only in 1984 by Czech expeditions. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities. You can climb Lhotse either from Everest Base Camp and near by Chhukung. The trek we follow begins at Lukla (2850m) and the initial days of the trek pass through the legendary Sherpa country up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu Region.
