Lhotse Shar ExpeditionMt. Lhotse Shar is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Its long east-west crest is located immediately south of Mt. Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are connected by the South Col, a vertical ridge that never drops below 8,000 meters. It is considered an independent mountain. It was first climbed by F. Luchsinger & E. Reiss in 1956. An impressive ring of three peaks makes up the Lhotse massif: Lhotse East or Middle, Lhotse & Lhotse Shar. The South Face of Lhotse is one of the largest mountain faces in the world. We attempt to climb the normal route to the tallest peak of the Lhotse massif call Lhotse Shar from fixing base camp at near by Chhuking & Lhotse Base Camp is located beside the Khumbu Glacier as well as closed to Island Peak area.

Mt. Lhotse Shar ExpeditionsThe first successful Lhotse Shar was ascent by an Austrian expedition in 1970. Japanese, South Koreans, and Germans attempted from various routes on its main peak. Poles and Italians also climbed the summit before the summit was reached again by German expeditions in 1977. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities. The trek we follow begins at Lukla (2850m.) and the initial days of the trek pass through the legendary Sherpa country up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu Region.
