“Lhotse” which means south peak is part of the Everest massif. By virtue of it being 3 km south of Mount Everest, from which it is separated by the South Col, it is considered an independent mountain. It was first climbed by F. Luchsinger and E. Reiss in 1956. An impressive ring of three peaks make up p the Lhotse massif: Lhotse East or Middle, Lhotse and Lhotse Shar. The South Face of Lhotse is one of the largest mountain faces in the worlds. We attempt to climb the normal route to the tallest peak of the Lhotse massif.

Lhotse BC is located beside the Khumbu Glacier, same as Everest BC. The section during the climb which has been unanimously declared the most dangerous is the Khumbu Icefall.

The first successful ascent of the mountain was in 1956 by the Swiss on the west Face. The South face though attempted many times was successfully climbed on in 1984 by a Czech expedition. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities.
