A technical Cholatse Peak Climbing in Nepal

Cholatse is a spectacular peak with steep soaring lines on every aspect. It is one of the more prominent peaks on the approach to the Mt. Everest Base camp. Although it does not have quite the commanding position of Ama Dablam, it is prominent as people ascend above Pheriche all the way to base camp, with beautiful views possible in the region of Lobuche. Athough not seen by as many people, the views of it from the Gokyo valley are also stunning. Due to its proximity to the viewer, the peak dominates the scene if you are ever fortunate enough to view a sunset from the summit of Gokyo Ri.

The challenging South West Ridge of Cholatse is a hidden gem of the Himalaya and a solid mountaineering objective for experienced climbers. Nestled between the Khumbu and Gokyo Valleys in the Everest region.
