Book This TripLhotse Expedition

Duration: 48 Days
Trip Grade: Advanced
Best Season: April - May, Sept - Nov

Lhotse was first climbed by F Luchsinger and E Reiss in 1996. "Lhotse" which means "south peak" is part of the Everest massif and is only 3 km south of Mount Everest, separated by the South Col. There are three peaks which make up the Lhotse massif and they are Lhotse East or middle, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse. The South face of Lhotse is more technical and is one of the largest mountain faces in the world. We will attempt to climb via the normal route to the highest summit of the Lhotse massif. Mt Everest and Lhotse share the same base camp.

Mountain safety:
Mountain safety is our number one priority at climb High. We will maintain a continual communication with base camp through radios. Climb High will also provide you with Gamo bag (Portable Altitude Chamber bag) and oxygen in case of any emergency (for medical purpose only). Our Lhotse Expedition is supported by strong and experienced Sherpa's who have been on Lhotse several times. Our Experienced guide and Sherpa's will, stock camps, fix ropes and provide support for the climb. This enables you to carry lighter weight and save your strength when you go for the summit bid. Climb High's support, equipment and service are high quality in order to give you an outstanding chance to summit.

Our objectives:
Our main objective is to help you summit Lhotse safely and at the same time enjoy it also. In order to achieve our goal, we will ensure you that you are properly prepared for the summit bid. On your request Climb High run's a variety of mountaineering courses as a Lhotse training program to prepare clients for the Lhotse climb and we will take you to the summit of one of the high altitude peaks in the Everest region as a training peak.

It is also important to acclimatize properly to avoid altitude problems and to keep yourself healthy and fit. Climb High will make sure that you are properly acclimatized before you reach the base camp. We will start our acclimatization process to our highest acclimatization camp which is Camp 3 and from here we will make our attempt to summit Lhotse.

Food:
Our food for the mountain is well prepared by our special trained cooks in order to give you the best balanced diet of fruit, green vegetables and lot's of carbohydrates and proteins. Our cooks have undergone cooking trainings and can prepare you any food even at such high altitudes, which will really amaze you. We also make sure that they are prepared hygienically as we don't want any one of our clients to feel sick. In addition there will be plenty of hot drinks, soups, tea and biscuits to eat.
