OVERVIEW 

At a height of 8,516m, Mt Lhotse is the fourth highest peak in the world – situated just 3 km South of the Majestic Mt. Everest.

Both Mount Everest and Mount Lhotse share the same base camp as well.

This beautiful Lhotse holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities. Its embedded in a region of great natural scenery and dotted with monuments and villages representing the cultural diversity of Nepal.

Lhotse can be climbed either from Everest Base Camp or nearby Chhukung. Being an 8,000er, the Lhotse Expedition encounters many obstacles including high altitudes, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. We believe our planning, logistics, staffing and experience coupled with your enthusiasm, patience, and perseverance would help you achieve your lifetime dream. We strive hard to conduct the best expedition program at a fair price.

The spring season of March to May is considered the best time for Lhotse expedition. Spring is also the most popular season for the expedition. The months of April and May and then again October and November are the classic climbing period. The summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February are the most unfavorable time for Lhotse Expedition. The temperatures can vary from 27c to - 7c at lower elevations, and at higher elevations, it can vary from 16c to -23c.
