"Lhotse" means "the southern peak" in the Tibetan language. The fourth highest mountain in the world, located south of Mount Everest, is a part of the same mountain range. It owes its name to Charles Howard-Burye, the captain of the first British expedition to these uncharted regions of the world. The southern wall of Lhotse is over 3,000 meters of a very steep and dangerous climb. Many great mountaineers have been defeated by the peak. Some paid for their daring attempts with their lives, like the famous Polish climber, Jerzy Kukuczka. Even such an outstanding climber as Reinhold Messner, the summiter of all eight-thousanders of the world, withdrew from high mountains climbing forever, after attempting to get to the top of Lhotse by the southern wall. So far, probably only one team of climbers managed to win with Lhotse, attacking from the south. Sergey Bershov and Vladimir Karataev in 1990 defeated one of the most difficult challenges of modern mountaineering. K2: Lhotse is an expansion of K2 in which the players' task is to lead the team of two climbers as close as possible to the summit. The expansion includes an alternative, two-sided board and new weather tiles. K2: Lhotse also introduces a completely new mechanics - fixed rope tokens which allow you to set your own routes. Each side of the board offers a different scenario and a different challenge.
