Its long east-west crest is located  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. Lhotse is sometimes mistakenly identified as the south peak of the Everest massif. No serious attention was turned to climbing Lhotse until after Everest had finally been ascended. Lhotse was first climbed in 1956     by two Swiss, Fritz Luchsmger and Ernest Reiss. Lhotse has three summits: Lhotse Main 8516m, Lhotse Shar 8383m and Lhotse Middle or East 8413m. Lhotse Main was first climbed in 1956 by a Swiss expedition, Lhotse Shar in 1979 and Lhotse Middle in 2001 by a Russian Expedition team. Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world at 8551 meters and is unique in that it is climbed from virtually the same route as Mount Everest.
