 Hungarian Everest - Lhotse Expedition (2001)

Mount Everest (or Sagarmatha, Qomolangma):

The highest summit on Earth. There are 14 so called 8000ers on our planet. All of them can be found in the three highest mountain ranges, the Himalayas, the Karakorams and the Hindukush - in High Asia. Everest (and it's 8516 meters high neighbor, Lhotse) are in the Himalayas.

Goal of the expedition: To climb the mountain without supplementary oxygen or high altitude porters via the technically challenging Kangshung Face. Amongst our further goals are:

  1. To climb the neighboring summit, Lhotse, without descending further down than the South Col in-between the climbs. If we can do that, then, for the first time, the Everest-Lhotse Traverse will be completed.
  2. To prepare high quality documentations: live broadcasts, Internet reports, and, if conditions will permit, a live broadcast from the summit.

Naturally, our most important goal is that all team members should arrive home alive, and in harmony with the mountains!

The team: The organizer of the expedition is the Explorers Program. It's leader is David Klein, its technical leader is Miklσs Ferenci. Five climbers, a doctor, a Base Camp manager, a technician and a 3 men film-making crew, will set up it's Base Camp below the East Face of Everest. In Hungary a 2 man support team will manage any tasks while we are in Tibet.

Dates: The team - after acclimatization in Nepal - will cross the border to Tibet. The approach march to Base Camp from the road, taking yaks, will take approximately 9 days. Climbing will take approximately 1,5 - 2 months.

Technical data: We will use semi-alpine style: above Base Camp we will use camps (C1, C2, etc.). All camps will be stocked from the one below. Climbers will set off for their summit bid from the top camp and return to there. We will not use bottled oxygen1 or high altitude porters.

  • Altitude of Base Camp: 5500 m.
  • Climbing times
  • BC - C1: 6 - 7 hours
  • C1 - C2: 6 - 7 hours
  • C2 - C3: 7 - 8 hours
  • C3 (South Col) - summit: 7 - 8 hours
  • We will install approximately 2000 meters of rope.
  • The Kangshung Face is less windy.
