- The beautiful green fairy maiden, the fourth highest peak of the world in Tibet

Lhose Feng Mountain

Located at 86.9 0E and 27.9 0N, Lhoze Feng, the fourth highest peak in the world, is at an altitude of 8516 meters. Three kilometers away from the south of Qomolangma Feng, it is separated form Qomolangma Feng by a col, usually called the “South Col”. With the North Ridge and the Southeast Ridge of the Peak as the boundary, the east side of Lhoze Feng lies in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China while the east side belongs to the Kingdom of Nepal.

In Tibetan language, Lhoze Feng is otherwise called Dinjexieshangma, meaning “the beautiful green fairy maiden”. With the extremely precipitous terrain of the “fairy maiden”, it usually features complicated enviroment, densely distributed glaciers of various sizes and unexpected climate. The wind velocity is a little less than that of Qomolangma Feng but the rainstorm is heavier. From early June to mid-Septermber every year, the frequent snowstorms and avalanches throw the peak into constant confusion of heavy alouds and dense fog. As the wind is advancing south in the northwest from mid-November to mid-February of the next year, the peak temperature is reduced as low as - 60℃. Thus only in every spring from early March to the end of May of from early September to the end to October in every autumn, may a stable climate and several nice days be available.

On May 18, 1956, E•Reiss and F•Luchsinger from the Swiss Moun-taineering Team made the first successful attempt to reach the summit along the north slope from Nepal. So far, however, no one has made it along the east slope from China.

To learn the route line, please see that of Qomolangma Feng.
