Mt Lhotse Expedition (8516m)
"Lhotse" which means south peaks is part of the Everest massif. By virtue of it being 3km south of Mount Everest, from which it is separated by the South Col. It is considered 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 the normal route to the tallest peak of the Lhotse massif. Lhotse BC is located beside the Khumbu Glacier, same as Everest BC. The section during the climb, which has been unanimously declared the most dangerous, is the Khumbu Icefall.
The first successful ascent of the mountain was in 1956 by the Swiss on the West Face. The South Face though attempted many times was successful climbed only in 1984 by a Czech expeditions. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities.
