Cholatse Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PCT

29 Days

Cholatse Peak

Cholatse peak is also popularly called Jobo Lhaptshan.  It is located in the Mahalangur  Himalaya between the Khumbu and Gokyo valleys. Cholatse 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 visible from Dughla, on the trail to Mount Everest base camp. Some of the routes from the Khumbu side are extremely challenging, while the Gokyo side offers moderate options.

Cholatse is a technically difficult peak featuring narrow snow and ice ridges and steep faces. It is on the brilliant ridge separating the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys. It rises just north of Taboche and south of 5420 meter Cho La pass which is used by Sherpas and trekkers to hike between the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys. There is no easy way to reach or descend from Cholatse's summit. Therefore, any climb of the mountain is a very serious mountaineering undertaking. Climbing to  Cholatse peak requires one to be in good health and physically fit.
Cholatse  Peak was first climbed via the southwest ridge on 22nd  April 1982 by Bill O'Connor, Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell and John Roskelley. The first solo ascent was successfully made on April 15, 2005, by Ueli Steck via the north face.

Trip Highlights
