Nature had not fed enough her to compete with her companion in height but still she is one of the sharpest and the fourth highest Mountain peak of the world. Her south face is one of the steepest in the world and it is connected with Mount Everest via the South Col. This immaculate wonder of the world in known with the name of Mount Lhotse which is a collection of three summits, the main summit is having an elevation of 8,516 meters (27,940 ft) above sea level, Lhotse Middle (East) is 8,414 meters (27,605 ft) high and Lhotse Shar is 8,383 meters (27,503 ft) high.
Mount Lhotse is also situated in the great Himalayan range along the China Nepal Border in the region of Khumbu Himal having a longitude of 86.56.03 and latitude of 27.57.45. Sometimes the Mount Lhotse is considered wrongly a part of the massif of the great Mount Everest but actually the Mount Lhotse peaks have their separate identity. Mount Lhotse was first climbed on May 18, 1956 by a Swiss team comprising of Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger.
The Southern face of Mount Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain on earth, is a killer side which has caused the death of many mountaineers of the world during their expedition. Most of the trekkers adopt the main route through Camp 3 from Mount Everest and reach straightly to the main summit.
