Treks & Expedition
OverviewLhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world, is situated in Everest region. Its long east-west ridge is located immediately south of Mount Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are connected by the South Col. So, Lhotse is best known for its proximity to Mt. Everest and the climbers who approach this mountain from the normal route spend considerable time on its north west face. Lhotse rises only 610m. from the South Col, however, it is a prominent peak due to its tremendous south face, the most impressive walls in Himalayas, notable for the steepest face with many failed attempts, many fatalities and very few ascents.
The western flank of Lhotse is known as the Lhotse Face. Any climber who wants to climb the the peak via standard route of South Col on Everest must climb this 1,125m (3,700ft) wall of glacial blue ice. This face rises at 40 and 50 degree pitches with the occasional 80 degree bulges. Two rocky sections called the Yellow Band and the Geneva Spur interrupt the icy ascent on the upper part of the face. This is a technically challenging route and will require solid climbing skills and experience.
Lhotse has three summits: Lhotse Main 8516m, Lhotse Shar 8383m and Lhotse Middle or East 8413m . Lhotse Main was first climbed in 1956 by a Swiss expedition, Lhotse Shar in 1979 and Lhotse Middle in 2001 by a Russian Expedition team.
