Lhotse Expedition - 8516m / 27,923 ft.

April 1 to May 17, 2015'  - 47 days

You've asked us for another 8000m peak and we were listening!

Lhotse stands at 8516m, making it the fourth highest mountain in the world. It is situated at the border of Tibet and Nepal. 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 8,000m. Lhotse has three summits: Lhotse Main 8516m, Lhotse Shar 8383m and Lhotse Middle or East 8413m.

This Lhotse expedition requires a high level of climbing proficiency on steep, exposed and technical skill and altitude experience is mandatory. It's an ideal climb designed for previous Everest climbers or those who have tested climbs at 7000m +

Our Lhotse expedition will follow the same itinerary and infrastructure as our Everest Expedition commencing April 1st from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp( ITINERARY). All members will participate in a training session at base camp to make sure we are all on the same page with safety protocol and technical skills.

To shorten the time spent in the ice fall in gaining acclimatization needed to ascend safely we test ourselves on higher objectives in the area. After Everest and Lhotse and climbers have been assessed for acclimatization and the ladders and ropes are all secure and camp provisions have been stocked we begin to move up through the Western Cwm.

We provide a Camp 1 at but it is mainly used as stopover and emergency camp if needed. The plan will be for everyone to be prepared enough to move directly to Camp 2 (6400m), spend two nights and then move up to Camp 3 (7200m) on the Lhotse Face. We'll spend one night here before descending back to Camp 2 then the next day back to Base Camp where we will wait till the route has been established and camp provisions are in place for the summit push.

WHY PEAK FREAKS?

  • We are a owner operated 8000m Expedition company led by high altitude mountain guide Tim Rippel and his wife Becky. We are small but our success is big. To help our expedition participants reach their individual goals safely while enjoying an intimate mountain experience, we keep it that way! Whether it be Heli Skiing in Canada or climbing the tallest mountains in the world you can rest assured you are in experienced and skilled hands. 

  •  

  • During the course of 22 years in operation we are proud to say that we have a flawless client safety record. We have never lost a client in any of our extreme activities.  

  • We are different from many operators today. The people you talk to when planning your expedition are the same people working with you on the mountain. Your expedition leader climbs alongside you on the mountain and not leading by radio from base camp or imported leaders or from an office in another country. As a mountain rescue professional, your safety is always Tim's priority. 
  •  
  • We also believe that your comfort during the expedition is as important. We invest in making your lengthily stay away from home comfortable and nourishing.  We know that you won't find a better facility anywhere on the mountain than Peak Freak's base camps. A place where every detail is carefully considered to help you endure the world's most hostile and highest environment. Maintaining good health and in turn attitude, is an extremely important factor in the success of any expedition.
  • Our ability to offer first class small scale expeditions at an affordable price.
  • Our sherpa client ratio is very high. Sometimes 2 to 1 depending on our climbers abilities. We don't cut corners on man power. We invest in the people who play a major factor in your success.
