Lhotse is the world’s fourth highest mountain and was first climbed by Ernest Reiss of Switzerland in 1956. Located next to Everest it shares the route towards the South Col route to Camp 3 (7300m) high on the Lhotse Face. A final camp is placed at 7900m before the steep ice and rock Lhotse Couloir is climbed to gain the impressive knife edge ridge that leads to the summit.

Lhotse can be climbed separately or in combination (a tough challenge) with our Everest South Col Expedition. Lhotse is a beautiful more challenging climb as Everest. Summit day is much quieter, Lhotse is a good alternative to Everest if you want to travel true the Khumbu Ice fall, but do a different climb!

Arnold Coster runs this trip parallel to his Everest South Expedition.
