Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world and located opposite of Mt Everest’s South face in the Everest region, Nepal. The South Col actually connects Mt Everest and Lhotse to each other. Expeditions follow the same route across the Khumbu Ice Fall and the Western Crown to camp 3 at the Lhotse face.

On the way to Everest's Camp 4, just above the Yellow Band, the Lhotse route takes another direction. Some very strong climbers have even climbed Lhotse and Mt Everest in one, long expedition, but for most of us, Lhotse is a great, single very high mountain to climb, very close to Everest.

Many climbers agree that Lhotse is more difficult to climb than Everest due to the very steep ice and rock sections in the Lhotse couloir. So, climbers’ definitely need to be very fit and experienced. There are a few extra advantages, though, the Lhotse climbing permit is much cheaper and there will be no crowds on the mountain from Camp 4 to the summit!

Lohtse - The Expedition with Himalayan Global Expedition

The trip starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and from there we follow the trail to Everest Base Camp via the famous villages of Namche Bazaar, Thyangboche (Monastery), Pheriche, Lobuche, Gorakshep and finally reach the Everest Base Camp at 5,360m.
