Mt. Cholatse (6440 m)

Mt. Cholatse (6440 m)

The Mt. Cholatse(6,440m) is a hidden pride of the Himalayan ranges. Also known as Jobo Lhaptshan, this peak is a beautiful snow-capped mountain in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Its pointy summit pierces through clouds and reaches for the sky. In the word Cholatse, ‘Cho’ means lake, ‘la’ means pass and ‘tse’ means peak. The lake-pass-peak is far more difficult to climb than many other popular Himalayan peaks. This trek is only recommended for experienced climbers with the right skills and equipment to make the climb if the plan is to go up to the tip of the pinnacle.

One of the most amazing things about the Mt. Cholatse peak climbing is the long ridge, that connects the peak to another peak that is 6,501m high, the Taboche. The other exceptional gift of nature is the Chola glacier on the east of the Cholatse. Everest base camp trekkers are able to see the peak from Dughla, a small mountain pass in the district of Solukhumbu. Many trekkers returning from the EBC trek or on their Gokyo Ri trek prefer to take the Cholatse peak climbing (6440m) route to visit this tucked-away gem.
