Mount Lhotse Expedition, the worlds` 4th highest peak, is a great opportunity to explore one of the most resplendent and famous peaks in the world. It is a multi-ascend expedition with rock, snow, and ice is a top bucket list every climber would love to have. A mountain experience in varied terrain above the height of the 7000 meters is an unforgettable moment to have.

The worlds` 4th highest peak at the elevation of 8516 meters/ 27,940 feet is the part of Everest Massif. The summit lines in the Khumbu region of Nepal, between the borders of Tibet of China. It is contiguous to the latter peak through the South Col. Mount Lhoste, which means South Peak in Tibetan comprises Lhotse East at 8414 meters and Lhotse Shar at 8383 meters. The dramatic Peak Mount Lhotse rises 3.2 km in only 2.25 km of horizontal distance, thus, makes the steepest face of this size in the world. The Swiss team of Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger first climbed Mount Lhotse on May 18, 1956. Mount Lhotse Expedition has two routes, Khumbu Icefall and Northwest couloirs. The route via Khumbu Icefall is possible and relatively safe after the climbing Sherpa successfully set the route installing ladders across crevasses and vertical Seracs. Mount Lhotse Expedition lines beside the Khumbu Glacier the same as Everest Base Camp at the elevation of 5,364 meters. The expedition also comprises other high camps from Camp I to Camp IV at the elevation of 6065 meters, 6750 meters, 7100 meters, and 7920 meters correspondingly.
