Soaring with an altitude of 8,516m, Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Lhotse means South peak in Tibetan and this peak is connected to Mt Everest via South col. Apart from the main peak, there are smaller peaks; Lhotse middle (8,414m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m). The route to the top of the summit is similar up to the camp 4 of Everest Expedition and onwards it gets steepen sharply with the icy gully. And the view from the summit is worth investing millions of dollars.
Lhotse lies in between the border of Nepal and Tibet in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Because of its connectivity with Everest sometimes it is considered as the part of Everest massifs. The main summit was first climbed by the Swiss team of Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger in the year 1956.
