Lhotse Expedition - 49 Days

Lhotse Expedition - 49 Days


Lhotse is best known for its proximity to Mount Everest and it is the fourth highest Peak in the world. The fact that climbers ascending the standard route on that peak spend some time on its northwest face. In fact Lhotse has one of the smallest topographic prominence values of any official eight-thousander, as it rises only 610 m above the South Col. Hence, it is often seen as a minor eight-thousander. The summit Lhotse east or middle (8,414m) is situated on the ridge between main summit of Lhotse (8,516m) and Lhotse shar (8,400m). Any separate ascents up to this summit are practically excluded because of the steep walls and very crossed relief. It is possible to summit only by climbing up to main Lhotse or Lhotse shar before and then make a traverse of a very crossed ridge with a length about 1,000 meters the lowest of the three Lhotse summits.
