Mount Lhotse Expedition (8,516m)


Lhotse is the world’s 4th highest mountain with the elevation of 8,516 meters (27,940 ft) above sea level.  The exact meaning of Lhotse in the Tibetan language is ‘South Peak’. It lies south of Mount Everest and connected with the South Col. Apart from the main summit of Lhotse at 8,516 meters, there are two other smaller peaks namely Lhotse Middle (East) at 8,414 m and Lhotse Shar at 8,383m. The main summit of Mt. Lhotse is on the border between Tibet(China)  and the Khumbu region of Nepal.  The main mountain of Mt. Lhotse is famous in the world for its remarkable and dramatic south face. It is the steepest face in the world that rises 3.2km within 2.25km horizontal distance. This is why it is extremely difficult to climb and very few climbers have attempted till  date. The standard climbing route on Mt. Lhotse follows via Everest’s South Col. route up to the Yellow Band beyond Camp 3. After the Yellow Band, the route deviates with climbers bound for Everest taking a left over the Geneva Spur up to the South Col, while Lhotse climbers take a right further up the Lhotse face. The last part to the summit passes through the narrow “Reiss couloir” up to the Lhotse main peak is reached.

The main summit of Lhotse was first climbed by two Swiss climbers – Fritz. Luchsinger and Ernst.Reiss from the Swiss Mount Everest/Lhotse Expedition on May 18, 1956, through  the West Face. The South Face of Mt. Lhotse despite being  attempted many times was successfully climbed only in 1984 by a Czech. On May 12, 1979, Lhotse Shar summit was scaled and the middle summit was climbed on May 23, 2001.
