Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Lhotse to the south of the world’s highest peak is a part of the Everest massif. By virtue of it being 3km south of Mount Everest, from which the South Col. It separates it is considered as an independent mountain. It was first climbed by F. Luchsinger & E.Reiss in 1956. An impressive ring of three peaks makes up the Lhotse massif: Lhotse East or Middle, Lhotse & Lhotse Shar. The South Face of Lhotse is one of the largest mountain faces in the world. We attempt to climb via the normal route to the tallest peak of the Lhotse massif.
Lhotse BC is located beside the Khumbu Glacier. The section during the climb that has been unanimously declared the most dangerous is the Khumbu Icefall.
The first successful ascent of the mountain was in 1956 by the Swiss through the West Face. The South Face though attempted many times but was successfully climbed only in 1984 by a Czech expedition. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities.
