Mount Lhotse Expedition

Mt.Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world whose height is 8501 m. The meaning of Lhotse is “South Peak” / South Face. Mt. Lhotse is the highest virgin summit in the world which lies about 3 km south of Mt. Everest. Climbers will be exhilarated to climb which is followed by Everest climbing route. This Mt. Lhotse is famous for its tremendous and dramatic south face. Three peaks that make up the Lhotse massif are Lhotse East or Middle, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse. It is considered to be an independent mountain and extremely difficult to climb. This mountain is climbed many times but rarely attempted.

There is no specific route to climb the Mt. Lhotse so you can climb from Everest Base Camp or nearby Chhukung. Since it is nearest to Mt. Everest, taking a route to Everest Base Camp will be easy. Since it is difficult to climb, the climbers have to face many obstacles during the expedition. Some obstacles are high altitudes, harsh weather condition, and even sheer exhaustion. The section during the climb, which has been unanimously declared the most dangerous, is the Khumbu Icefall. To climb this mountain the climber should have experience of climbing high altitude.

The best time to travel the Mt. Lhotse is March to May. During that timeless chance of rainfall so the climbers may not have to face avalanche. So there may be less difficult during expedition and Spring is the most popular season for the expedition. The months of April and May and then again October and November are also good to climb and they are classic climbing period. The most dangerous month for the expedition are summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February. Because if rainfall you couldn’t climb the mountain and during the winter season it is too much cold and temperature can reach up to -7.
