Mount Lhotse, the fourth tallest mountain in the world with 8516 meters of altitude, is situated nearby the world’s tallest peak of the Mount Everest in Nepal. It is one of the several mountains which is above eight thousand meters of altitude in the country and hence with no doubt is one of the major destinations for peak climbing and expedition purpose. Though it is only the fourth tallest mountain in the world, Mount Lhotse, however, is one of the most difficult peaks to climb in the entire world. The south face of the mountain has been the cause of many failed attempts and some tragic fatalities amongst the mountaineers aiming to scale the peak. If we are to look at the history, Lhotse Middle was first climbed by three groups of Russian climbers back in 2001. At that time, it was the last peak above the eight thousand meter of height in Nepal to be scaled. The long east-west crest of Lhotse is located straight away from the south end of the Mount Everest. The summits of the two great mountains are joined by the South Col which is a vertical edge that never drops below 8,000 meters.
Mount Lhotse is an important peak for Nepal expedition and is one of the most sought after peaks in the whole world and not just Nepal for mountain expedition for the adventure seeks from across the world. It provides an incredible life-long experience of mountaineering in Nepal during which you will uncover the adventures of peak climbing and also be able to indulge in natural sightseeing.
