The fourth highest mountain in the world, the 8,516-meter-high Luoze Mountain is three kilometers to the south of Mr. Qomolangma. In Tibetan, Luoze means a green beautiful fairy maiden.
But this "fairy maiden" has precipitous steep and a changeable climate. From early June to mid September, it has many snow slides and storms. In the winter the temperature will be -60¢XC.
In 1956, the Swiss mountaineering team was first to climb up the mountain from the western slope in Nepal. The mountaineering from the eastern slope in China is more difficult and there is no successful mountaineering record from the eastern slope.
(The recommended itinerary: It takes 110 kilometers from New Tingri to the northern foot of Mt. Qomolangma via Parco.)
