Join us to climb Lhotse, the world’s fourth highest mountain. Situated alongside Mt Everest, our Lhotse ascent route follows the Khumbu glacier on the same line of ascent as Everest’s SE ridge to a final camp high on the Lhotse face. From there we climb Lhotse’s narrow summit couloir that brings us almost directly onto the summit.
Our successful 2013 expedition was led by veteran altitude climber and guide, Guy Cotter. Our 2014 Lhotse expedition will be led by one of our veteran Everest guides of similar calibre to Guy. This expedition gives climbers a great opportunity to climb with an AC Everest guide and the cream of the Adventure Consultants Climbing Sherpa team.
The climb will be operated alongside the AC Everest team and therefore will enjoy the associated infrastructure and legendary base camp support.
Lhotse is a moderately difficult mountain due to its very high altitude, however the climbing is sustained and never too complicated or difficult. It is a perfect peak for those who want to climb at 8000m+ in a premier location.
Climbers can elect to join us for Lhotse, or for a more challenging experience we also offer an Everest / Lhotse combined ascent where you climb Lhotse from South Col after completing the ascent of Everest!
Lhotse add-on cost to Everest: US$19,750
Departure: ex Kathmandu, Nepal
