Lhotse expedition is a perfect alternative option to Everest Expedition. The expedition comes at a much lower cost than the Everest expedition but offers a similar kind of experience. It is a cheaper expedition than the Everest because of its lower climbing permit fees. This expedition is also a perfect acclimatization climb for the climbers heading to the summit of the Mt. Everest.

Lhotse Expedition: A Trip Overview

The Lhotse Expedition trip starts in Kathmandu on your arrival day and ends when you depart from Kathmandu. This adventure takes you on a trek to Everest base camp from where the actual climbing begins. When you trek towards the base camp, you will explore beautiful Sherpa villages, monasteries, nature, and peaceful surroundings.

Once you start the climb up from the base camp, you follow the same path as the Everest Expedition goes. The climbing path of the two mountains separates from a bit higher than the Yellow Band. You head towards the right towards Lhotse when the path diverges.

You climb the Khumbu Ice Fall above the base camp and follow the path. As the path progresses in the mountain, you reach the most challenging part of the expedition to Lhotse Couloir. It is a steep ice gully that rises as steep as 80 degrees up to 2.5 kilometers.

The climb has a demanding and challenging terrain with extreme climate. Heading towards the summit of Lhotse Main (8,516m), one has to be determined and avid climber with previous climbing experience.

Although an incredible climbing adventure, Lhotse Expedition is an easy climbing adventure for an 8,000-meter mountain. While you can go on this adventure as an independent trip, it can also be combined with the Everest Expedition.
