Nepal, known as the land of the Himalayas, shelters eight of the fourteen eight-thousanders. Among them is Mt. Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world. Located in the Khumbu region, it neighbored Mt. Everest and was first climbed by a Swiss expedition team in 1956.

In terms of difficulty, Mt. Lhotse is graded, strenuous, and challenging. Due to this reason, mountaineers who want to test their limits choose the Mt. Lhotse expedition. Experience the thrill of summiting the fourth-highest mountain of the world. Along with it, this expedition takes you on an adventure to see the best of what the Khumbu region has to offer.

The trip starts with your arrival at Kathmandu, where you need to prepare permits and necessary items required for the expedition. Then, you fly to Lukla, and from there, you trek along the picturesque landscape. You trek to various beautiful Sherpa villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, and Dingboche. En route, you get to see mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and even the smaller peaks.

From Dingboche, you head to Lobuche and then ascend to Lhotse Base Camp. At the base camp, you spend another two days to prepare for the summit. It will take almost a month to summit the peak. With the trail meandering through the glaciers, moraines, and crevasses, you will conquer the summit.

At the top, you will witness breathtaking views of the Khumbu region. The expedition is best done in the spring and autumn seasons as the weather is relatively stable with fewer chances of snow and rain.

At Everest Extreme Adventure, our main aim is to provide you with the best services so that your stay in Nepal will be memorable. To do so, we provide you with the finest and best facilities for transportation, accommodation, and other facilities as per your requirements.

Trip Itinerary



As per your scheduled flight, you land at the country of the Himalayas, Nepal. The flight lands at Tribhuvan International Airport, which is located in the capital city of Kathmandu. Our representatives and staff will be waiting to welcome you warmly. After introductions and pleasantries, you head to the hotel and refresh. Then, you join our staff again for a welcome dinner. During this time, you can discuss the details of the trip with them.



It is important to prepare for the expedition carefully, so we have separated two days for it. You can exercise and boost your stamina through various activities like bouldering. We can also arrange sessions with experts and experienced mountaineers who can help and give you useful tips for the expedition.



You head to the domestic airport early in the morning and board the flight that will take you to Lukla. In flight, you get to see amazing views of mountains like Everest, Langtang, Manaslu, and many more. At Lukla Airport, the local staff and porters will be waiting for you. After brief introductions, you start to trek towards Phakding. Ascending and descending through the rhododendron forests and crossing suspension bridges, you arrive at Phakding for an overnight stay.



The trek starts as you walk along the banks of the Dudh Koshi River. Walking through the pine and juniper forests, you get to see glimpses of Mt. Thamserku and even Mt. Everest, if the weather is clear. At Monjo, you need to show your permits because from here, you’re going to enter the Sagarmatha National Park. After the necessary procedures, you continue the trek and cross five suspension bridges. After crossing the last one that is called the Hillary Bridge, you ascend to Namche Bazaar.



It is important to familiarize yourself with the increasing altitudes, so today, you will spend the day acclimatizing. Along with it, you also get to explore the vibrant town of Namche Bazaar. After breakfast, you hike to the Sherpa Culture Museum, where you can learn more about the amazing Sherpa culture and their ties with mountaineering in Nepal.

The trail continues after breakfast, and the fantastic views of mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Nuptse greet you. The trail goes along forests filled with rhododendrons and pine trees. The trail then goes along the banks of the Imja Khola, and you arrive at Pangboche Monastery, which is another sacred place for the locals. After a quick tour of the place, you trek along the Lobuche River and ascend to Dingboche for an overnight stay.



Two days are set as rest days, so you need to utilize the time as much as you can. You are recommended not to rest in one place but rather keep your body active. On the first day, you can attend a seminar conducted by the Himalayan Rescue Association, located near Pheriche. Here, you can learn more about altitude sickness and how to tackle other problems in the higher elevations. On the second day, you can hike up to nearby hills to enjoy the views of the landscape and mountains.



The trail today is shorter compared to other routes in the previous days. You ascend to the glacier stream and walk along with it, enjoying the view. The trail goes steep, and you arrive at the memorial site for fallen trekkers. The trail continues with beautiful views of Pumori, and you finally arrive at the foothills of Lobuche Peak, where the village of Lobuche is located. Overnight stay at the teahouse.



Today, you make your way to the base camp. The trek goes uphill through glaciers and moraines. Enjoying the views of the mountains and landscape, you ascend to the Lobuche Glacier, and from here onwards, the base camp is a short hike away. Once you reach the base camp, you find a suitable spot to set up camps for your stay.



Since you’ll be climbing to more than 8,000m, it is important to prepare your body and acclimatize accordingly. You can hike up to nearby places to explore as well as train your body. With the help of the guides and staff, you can also do some quick exercises that will help you ascend to the summit. You can train yourself to use tools like ice-ax, especially if it is your first time using it.



Almost a month is separated for the climb to the summit. During this time, you gradually make your way through the icy trail and crevasses.



After finally reaching the summit, it’s time to head down to the lower elevations. Retracing the steps that you took, you pass by small villages and settlement areas and first arrive at Thyangboche. After enjoying the hearty Sherpa cuisine and culture, you descend to the next stop, Dingboche. You make your way through the pine forests, enjoying the views of mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and many more. Overnight stay at the lodge.

Then, you arrive at Lukla and have lunch there. In your free time, you can explore the local market and buy local products.



Today, you leave the Khumbu region and head back to the capital. You catch the first flight back to Kathmandu. It is best to board an early flight because there are high chances of delay. Once you arrive at the domestic airport of Kathmandu, you head to the hotel and rest. In the evening, you can head to explore the markets or book an appointment in the spa to relax your body.
