Lhotse Expedition

Mount Lhotse, which means "South peak”/” South Face”, lies beneath to the south of Everest with Altitude: 8,501 m/ 27,890 feet just 3km away from Everest. The fourth highest peak of the world. The south face of Lhotse raises 3.2km within 2.25km horizontal distance making it the steepest face of this size in the world.  In 1955 Mount Lhotse was first climbed by an International team. During the Lhotse Expedition one member of the same team began work on the first of the series of high-quality "Schneider maps of the Everest region". Three peaks that make up the Lhotse massif are: Lhotse East or middle, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse. Lhotse can be climbed either from Everest Base Camp or nearby Chhukung. Being a 8,000er, the Lhotse Expedition encounters many obstacles including high altitudes, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion.  Since Lhotse Expedition is difficult Supported by highly experienced mountaineers, guides you can complete that.

The primary route of Lhotse Expedition is via Everest's South Col. Lhotse is regarded as the least climbing activity of any 8000m peak in Nepal. Similarly, Lhotse Sar was first climbed by an Austrian expedition in 1970. There was no definite route in the region before 1977. It was the German Expedition who had established the comfortable route to summit the peak in the year 1977.
