Our Lhotse Expedition, with an altitude of 8,516 meters, is extremely difficult climb and a rarely attempted peak. Lhotse is the forth highest mountain on Earth, but it is best known for its proximity to Mount Everest and the fact that climbers ascending the standard route on Everest spend time on the northwest face of Lhotse. Lhotse has the smallest prominence, only 610 meters, of all the 8,000 meter peaks. Lhotse is however famous for its tremendous and dramatic south face. The south face of Lhotse raises 3.2km within 2.25 km of horizontal distance, making it the steepest face of this size in the world. It is an extremely difficult climb. Lhotse has 3 summits, the main summit at 8,516 meters (27,940 feet), Lhotse Middle (East) at 8,414 meters (27,605 feet) and Lhotse Shar at 8,383 meters (27,503 feet). The commercial route is from its north side via the Khumbu Icefall, sharing its length with the Everest south route
