Cholatse Peak Climbing (6440m): 21 Days
Cholatse (6440m), is a stunning peak with narrow snow and ice ridges and steep faces, technically difficult peak to climb, situated in the Mahalangur Himalaya between the Khumbu and Gokyo Valleys in the Everest region. 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. Cholatse Peak was first climbed via the southwest ridge on 22nd April 1982 by Bill O’Connor, Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell and John Roskelley. It is suitable for those climbers who are highly experience in ice and rock climbing.
