An alert and independent mountain separated by the south Cole, 3km south of Mt. Everest is Mt. Lhotse which is fourth highest peak in the planet. Lhotse means South Face. An impressive ring of three peaks makes up the Lhotse massif. Mount Lhotse east or middle, Lhotse and mount Lhotse Shar. The south face of mount Lhotse is one of the largest mountains faces in the world.
After several unsuccessful attempts, the South Face was successful climbed only in 1984. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities. Lhotse can be climbed either from Everest Base Camp or nearby Chhukung. Being an 8,000er, the Lhotse Expedition encounters many obstacles including high altitudes, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion.
