Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain on Earth rising at an elevation of 8516m above the sea level. It is located at the border between Tibet (China) and the Khumbu region of Nepal. Mt. Lhotse was climbed by a Swiss expedition in 1956. Its lower peak, mount Lhotse Shar 8383m, sometimes considered a separate 8000m peak, Mount Lhotse, which means "South peak" is a part of the Everest massif, just to the south of Everest.

 

Lhotse is best known for its proximity to Mount Everest and it is the 4th highest Peak in the world. The fact that climbers ascending the standard route on that peak spend some time on its northwest face, see below. In fact Lhotse has one of the smallest topographic prominence values of any official  eight-thousander, as it rises only 610 m above the South Col. Hence it is often seen as a minor eight-thousander. However, Lhotse Expedition is a dramatic peak in its own right, due to its tremendous south face. This 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 attempts, some notable fatalities, and very few ascents.
