Trip Overview

Cholatse Peak stands at height of 6423 metres (also known as Jobo Lhaptshan) is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya. Cholatse Peak is connected to Taboche (6,501m.) by a long ridge. The Chola glacier descends off the east face. The north and east faces of Cholatse can be seen from Dughla, on the trail to Mount Everest base camp. Mount Cholatse was first climbed via the southwest ridge on April 22, 1982 by Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell, John Roskelley, Bill O'Connor and Peter Hackett. Cholatse peak north face was successfully scaled in 1984. The first solo ascent was accomplished on April 15, 2005 by Ueli Steck through the north face. Mt. Cholatse climbing is staring the caravan routes fly to Lukla and all the way to Gokyo valley, climb Gokyo Ri for acclimatization, then continues trekking to Cholatse Base Camp and returning from Phortse village all the way down to Namche and final departure from Lukla.

Comparatively Cholatse Peak is very hard to climb than other peak in Nepal. Mount Cholatse is the technically difficult peak it requires careful ascent. We recommended cholatse peak for those climbers who are experience in ice and rock climbing. Only few climbers get success in cholatse peak climbing. Climbers need a vast mountaineering ability to climb Cholatse peak.
