Mount Everest - The Roof of the world, the name that we have been hearing since our childhood days, now welcomes you to embark on an expedition of a lifetime. Did you know that Mount Everest got its name from in honour of Sir George Everest, a former surveyor General of India. The mountain was first conquered by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in the year 1953. Everest is the most preferred choice for the mountaineers, however making it to the top requires exceptional skills, fitness, enthusiasm, patience and a good planning of the commodities.

An insight to Lhotse

Lhotse is the 4th largest mountain in the world after Mt.Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga and is located at a distance of 3km from Mt. Everest. Lhotse saw its first climbers in 1956, namely F. Luchsinger & E.Reiss. The summit of Lhotse lies in the Khumbu region of Nepal and in Tibet. It is interesting to note that the summit of Lhotse presents mountaineers some great views of Cho-Oyu, Thamserku, Island peak, Mt.Nuptse and Pumori. The southern side of this mountain is steep and usually not preferred by climbers. K1 Adventures brings this amazing bouquet of Everest and Lhotse expedition, just for you.
