Mt. Lhotse (8,516m) the fourth highest peak in the world is a part of the Everest Massif. The first attempt of Mt. Lhotse was made by an international team in 1955. The first successful ascent of this mountain was in 1956 by F. Luchsinger & E. Reiss of Swiss from the West Face. The primary route on Lhotse is via Everest's South Col. It is an independent mountain but the group of three peaks make up the Lhotse massif: Lhotse East or Middle, Lhotse & Lhotse Shar. The South Face of Lhotse is one of the largest mountain face in the world. Our route to climb this mountain is via the normal route or South Face of Lhotse.
Dream Himalaya Adventures has been running successful Himalayan mountaineering expeditions since more than decades now. We support full board expedition services up to the summit of the peak and as well as the basic services for base camp. We are committed to providing the highest quality service and experience to help you reach your goal. However, all climbing members are required to have considerable climbing experience at higher altitudes, preferably in the Himalaya.

Climbing Routes & High Camps
After final preparations in Kathmandu, we'll fly to Lukla and begins our 8 days teahouse trek in the Khumbu Valley to Everest base camp. We will ascent the peak via normal route, the south face route. We will establish four different camps on the mountain. The first, at 19,500ft, is situated at the top of the icefall. This camp function as an intermediate camp until Camp II (advanced base camp) is established at 21,000ft. Camp II will consist of large tents for cooking and dining and several smaller tents for sleeping. Camp II will be our base during the placements of Camp III and Camp IV (23,500ft and 25,912ft) respectively. Camp III, which stands at the head of the cirque on the Lhotse face, will consist of two and three men tents. This camp serves as an intermediate camp, which climbers will use to reach Camp IV. Oxygen will be used above Camp III to aid climbers in reaching high camp before attempting the summit. From Camp IV, we travel along the west ridge to the Summit. From here we traverse for a few hundred meters before reaching the main summit.
