Cholatse (also known as Jobo Lhaptshan) is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya. Cholatse is connected to Tawoche (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.
Cholatse was first climbed via the southwest ridge on April 22, 1982 by Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell, John Rowell and Bill O’Connor. The north face was successfully scaled in 1984.
The climbing route is considered a very technical and challenging ascent. Climbers can expect to encounter cold temperatures, ice fall negotiation, 15-20 pitches of knife edge ridge climbing and terrifying exposure on summit day.
This is an all inclusive trek and climbing expedition. Each member has 4 nights at The Marshyangdi 4 star Hotel with an excellent breakfast buffet included. These days can be used before or after the expedition as you see fit. Extra nights cost around $20 usd. You will be greeted at the Kathmandu Airport and taken to your Hotel to unwind or go check out the crazy Thamel district of Kathmandu.
It is possible to continue on to Ama Dablam at the conclusion or go out by way of Cho La and Gokyo. Let us know how we can help make this a perfect trip for you!
