The fourth highest mountain in the world, Lhotse is an exhilarating climb that follows the Everest climbing route as far as Camp Four where the route steepens to follow an icy gully to the summit.
The expedition benefits from the infrastructure we have for our Everest expedition and is therefore well resourced and supported. Climb Lhotse as a standalone expedition, or add-on to Everest or as part of the 'Triple Crown', Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse in one expedition.
- Climb the world’s fourth highest mountain
- Or, combine an ascent of Everest with Lhotse
The Adventure Consultants’ Lhotse Expedition takes advantage of our famous Everest Base Camp as a jumping off point to ascend the Khumbu Icefall and enter the Western Cwm. We follow this up to Camp Two, surrounded by the towering flanks of Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest’s South West Face. The route steepens as we climb the icy Lhotse face to Camp Three then on through the Yellow Band to Camp Four at the base of the summit gully. 2,000ft / 600m of climbing up the icy gully follows, sometimes with rocky sections that keep you on your toes, making this a challenging ascent. You have the option of joining the expedition specifically to climb Lhotse, or as a combo climb, making the ascent directly after your Everest summit from South Col.
