Lhotse Expedition

Situated in the Khumbu region, Mt. Lhoste is the fourth highest mountain in the world with its height 8,516meters. Lhotse, which means 'south peak', is a part of the Everest massif, lying just south to the Everest. Lhotse was climbed by a Swiss Expedition in 1956. Lhotse Shar, 8383m, is sometimes considered a Separate 8000m peak, however, it is the lowest peak of Mount Lhotse. The primary route of Lhotse is via Everest's South Col. Lhotse is regarded as the least climbing activity of any 8000m peak in Nepal. Similarly, Lhotse Sar was first climbed by an Austrian expedition in 1970. There was no definite route in the region before 1977. It was the German Expedition who had established the comfortable route to summit the peak in the year 1977.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
