Brief introduction of both mountains
Mount Everest (8,848m/29,029ft) is the world’s highest peak located in Nepal, which lies in the Mahalangur Himalayan range on the border between Nepal and Tibet (Latitude: 27°59ʹ17ʺ, Longitude: 86°55ʹ31ʺ). It was first climbed on May 29, 1953, by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa from Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand via South Face. Since then, many climbers have followed their steps and summited Mount Everest achieving uncountable world records in the history of Mountaineering.
Lhotse is the world’s 4th highest mountain with the elevation of 8,516m (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 8,516m, there are two other smaller peaks namely Lhotse Middle (East) at 8,414m 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.
