In Tibetan Dialect, Lhotse means the ‘South Peak’. Mt. Lhotse stands prominently side by side with Mt. Everest separated only by a small section south Col. The Lhotse main is 8516 meter in height and is recognized by world as fourth highest mountain on earth. There are other subsidiaries of Mount Lhotse including Lhote Middle (8414 m) and Lhotse Shar (8383 m).The Swiss expedition team led by Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger successfully climbed Lhotse in the spring of 1956. Austrians Sepp Mayerl and Rolf Walter became the first to climb Lhotse Shar in 1970 and in 2001, Eugeny Vinogradsky, Sergei Timofeev, Alexei Bolotov and Peter Kuznetsov from Russia summited Lhotse middle.The standard route of climbing Lhotse is the same as Everest till Camp III or Yellow band, from where one has to turn right of the Geneva Spur towards Lhotse face. The pitfalls of climbing Lhotse in the past involved unexpected strong winds and cold temperatures, the formidable Lhotse face wall, sharp icy and rocky climbs and a need for great coordination and foot.
