"Destination of the Travellers"

 

Lhotse was E1 of the Indian Survey, but appears to have had no local name either in Tibet or Nepal when Charles Howard-Bury's Everest reconnaissance team advanced along the Kama valley and northern edge of the Kangshung Glacier in August 1921. In the absence of an alternative, Howard-Bury's christened it Lho-tse, south peak in  Tibetan as it laid to the south of Everest, separated from it by the South Col. Because of the name's Tibetan derivation it has stuck.
Mt. Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Its long east-west crest is located immediately south of Mount Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are connected by the South Col, a vertical ridge that never drops below 8,000 meters. It is considered an independent mountain. It was first climbed by Mr. Ernst Reiss & Fritz Luchsinger of Switzerland on May 18, 1956 via West Face route.
