Climbing Lhotse, economical option

Lhotse (8516 m) is the fourth highest peak in the world. The classical route to the summit passes through the Khumbu icefall and Western Kun glacier and in the first 3 camps coincides with the route to the highest peak of the planet Everest (8848 m). In the spring of 2020, we organize two expeditions to Everest and Lhotse. In this connection, we will have one common base camp for 2 groups.
