After the great Mt. Everest and Kanchenjunga, Lhotse is the third highest mountain in Nepal and it is the 4th highest mountain in the world. It is the cousin peaks of Mt. Everest and Cho Oyu. Lhotse means “south peak” in the Tibetan language. The first ascent of Mt. Lhotse was done by the Swiss team of Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger in 1956. Like the Everest Base Camp, Lhotse Base Camp is located beside the Khumbu Glacier. Lhotse Face is supposed to be the largest Face of a mountain in the world.
