Lhotse Expedition - Nepal
Mount Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the World with the height of 8,516m. With two subsidiary peaks: Lhotse Shar (8,383m) & Lhotse Middle (8,414m), it has the most dramatic south face.
Mount Lhotse is located between the Khumbu region of Nepal and Tibet. It's long east-west crest is located to the south of Mount Everest and the summits of the two mountains are connected via the South Col.Lhotse is known as “South Peak” in Tibetan.Lhotse Expedition consists of two subsidiary peaks of the main peak; Lhotse Shar 8,383m and Lhotse Middle (East) 8,414 m. The main summit of Lhotse was first climbed in 1956 by a Swiss team during the Swiss Everest/Lhotse Expedition.
Lhotse is a dramatic peak in its own right, due to its tremendous south face rising at 40 and 50 degree pitches with the occasional 80 degree, making it the steepest face of this size in the world.The trip starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and from there following the trail to Everest Base Camp via the famous villages of Namche Bazaar, Tengboche (Monastery), Pheriche, Lobuche, Gorakshep and finally the Everest Base Camp at 5,360m. From here we cross the famous Khumbu Ice Fall and set our first camp, Camp I at 6,400m. Camp II is set at 6,750m, Camp III at 7,100m and the last Camp IV at 7,850m. From here we push for the summit.
