Lhotse Expedition (8516m)
Lhotse is situated about 3 km south of Mt. Everest, divided by the South Col. In reality, Lhotse literally means South Face. Lhotse East / middle, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse are the three mountains which makes Lhotse Mountains. It is believed to be an independent peak. In 1984 the South Face was successfully climbed. It can be climbed from Everest Base Camp (EBC) or nearby Chhukung. Being an 8 eight thousanders it meet many problems such as unpredictable weather, high altitudes and many more.
It is one of the fourth elevated mountains in the world. Similarly, it has been recognized as the south crest of the Everest Mountain. In 1956 it was climbed from a different trail towards the peak of Everest. Lhotse is well known for its nearness to Mt. Everest and the fact that mountaineers climbing typical trail on that mountain expend some time on its North West side. Similarly, It has the tiny topographic fame worth of any official 8000 m as it climb only 610m above the South Col. So, it is also considered as small 8000ers.
Mt. Everest climbers' heads to the western side of Mt. Lhotse, which is also famous as Lhotse face. Lhotse face is full of ice and it is tricky too to find the way, mainly as climbers are acclimatize to themselves to the elevated altitudes and physical exertion. Once hikers have arrived at the South Col through Lhotse face they have only few days to try the peak of Everest or they can hike down the peak as the affects of altitude sickness can be harsh. Similarly, experienced guides and the support crew from Adventure Mission Nepal will try their level best to make your trip a life time memory.
