MOUNT  LHOTSE EXPEDITION

MOUNT LHOTSE EXPEDITION

( 62 NIGHTS/ 63 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Lhotse (8,516m / 27,940 ft.) the 4th highest peak in the world is one of the most dangerous peaks to climb in Nepal. The peak stands at the immediate south of the paramount Everest and at the border of Nepal and Tibet. The peak, with its three dominating summits, is sometimes identified as the south peak of the Everest massif. A Swiss Mt. Lhotse expedition in 1956 was rewarded for the success of concurring the Lhotse for the first time in history. The mountain was climbed via the southeast ridge by mountaineers Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger.

The Lhotse expedition tour would begin at Lukla, and after the expedition the returning destination would be the same. The weather conditions can be unpredictable during the monsoon, therefore the best time to visit is during the spring season. Climbers will acclimatize at the top of the Khumbu icefall, a challenging obstacle surrounded by crevasses. During the trek to the base camp trekkers come across the famous Namche Bazaar and local tea houses. The locals welcome and try to help climbers with anything required for a safe and successful expedition. The climb to the summit of the Mt. Lhotse has been found extremely difficult even by world renowned mountaineers. The Mt.Lhotse expedition 62 night 63 days tour is extremely challenging but it is offers an experience of a lifetime.
