Mount Lhotse Expedition Brief Insight

Mt. Lhotse is better known as “South Peak” and is a part of the Everest region with a height of 8,516 meters making it the fourth-highest mountain in the world. Mount Lhotse Expedition has 3 summits, the main summit at 8,516 meters, Lhotse Middle at 8,414 meters, and Lhotse Shar at 8,383 meters.

Lhotse is best known for its proximity to Mt. Everest and the fact that climbers ascending the standard route on that peak spend some time on its northwest face. Mt. Lhotse was first climbed by a Swiss expedition in the year of 1956.

It is the smallest prominence i.e. only 610m, among all 8,000 meters peak. Lhotse is famous for its tremendous and dramatic south face. Because the south face raises 3.2 km within 2.25km horizontal distance making it the steepest face of this size in the whole world.

This makes it extremely difficult to climb and only a few have attempted and got success. The south face of Lhotse Peak is one of the largest mountain faces on the earth.

Mount Lhotse Expedition is an adventurous journey to the fourth highest mountain in the world. Lhotse Peak lies in the Mahalangur Himal which is a part of the Great Himalaya. The main route of the mountain is the Everest’s south col.

In the year of 1955, the first attempt to climb Lhotse was held by the mountaineer Norman Dyhrefurth. During the climbing time, the views of the neighboring mountain are supreme such as the Everest, Island Peak, Makalu, Pumori, and Cho Oyu. The first Nepali to climb Lhotse was Urkien Tshering Sherpa on 8 May 1977.

Lhotse Expedition offers the trekking trip with a typical taste of Sherpa village and culture, the villager’s life and the vibes of getting into that culture. The peak climbing also offers the awesome view of mountain, flora, and fauna before taking a step in a snowy land.

The Pines tree and the bamboo forest in the hilly region surrounded by the snow-capped mountain are just awesome. The majestic view from the top of the peak to Everest, Makalu, and other mountain is breathtaking.
