Lhotse is best known for its proximity to Mount Everest and at 8516 metres it is the 4th highest Peak in the world. The climbing route for the Lhotse Expedition follows the same route as the climb on Everest, including the aptly named Lhotse face almost all the way till Everest's Geneva Spur from where it follows a steep climb through a long couloir to the summit.
Climbing Lhotse is an excellent alternative to the Everest Expedition while being much more affordable since the permit fees are much lower while offering a similar climb. Though it is often seen as a minor eight-thousander, Lhotse is a dramatic peak in its own right, due to its tremendous south face which rises 3.2 km in only 2.25 km of horizontal distance, making it the steepest face of this size in the world. The south face has been the scene of many failed Lhotse expeditions, some notable fatalities, and very few ascents. Climbing Lhotse can be done as an add on during an Everest expedition as well.
