I will be heading back in six week to Nepal to join the Altitude Junkies for another try of Mt Lhotse (8516m). Mt. Lhotse is the 4th highest mountain in the world. It is one of the mountains beside Mt. Everest (on the south side). As you already hear from last year’s blog posts, we will be sharing the same base and higher camps with the Everest expedition teams. After camp 3 (7200m) we go our separate ways. Everest climbers go to the left towards the south col and we will go right towards the summit of Lhotse, a knife edge summit ridge. I will keep you posted after I get to Nepal (still six weeks to go)… I was told last year (confirmed by Elizabeth Hawley) that no other Lithuanian person has ever reached the peak of Lhotse. Wish me luck and stay tuned for updates.
