Trip Introduction

Lhotse is a part of the Mount Everest massif. The name of Lhotse comes from Tibet, and its translation means “the South Peak”. It is comprised of three prominent peaks- the main summit which is 8,516 meters, the Lhotse East with elevations of 8,414 meters and the Lhotse Shar at 8,383 meters. Lhotse is a popular alternative to Mount Everest and shares much of the same route as Everest. It lies on the border between Tibet and the Khumbu region and was first climbed by the members of the Swiss mountaineering and Expedition team- Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger in 1956.

They climbed the main summit of Lhotse. On 1970, Sepp Mayerl and Rolf Walter of Austria made the first ascent of Lhotse Shar. Lhotse Middle however, remained unclimbed for a long time, until in 2001- its first ascent was made by Eugeny Vinogradsky, Sergei Timofeev, Alexei Bolotov and Petr Kuznetsov of a Russian expedition. The Lhotse Face is often described as ‘a wall of glacial blue ice’, and the Swiss superstar climber Ueli Steck has also described the bustling atmosphere of the mountain settlements as being, quote- ‘like Hollywood’. A glacier also originates from the Lhotse Shar and adjoins with the Imja Glacier.
