Chola Tse Peak Climbing - 29 days
Mt. Chola Tse Peak Climbing (6440 meters / 21129 feet) : Technical peak

Chola tse Peak (6440 meters / 21129 feet) is one of the famous peak climbing in nepal, located in the Khumbu Himalayan region of Nepal. Comparatively this peak is very hard to climb than some of other trekking peak and higher mountain in Nepal. Not many climbers have been succeeding to climb this peak. Climbing solo at this level would be impossible without the vast mountaineering ability. This peak is recommended to climb if you skilled ice and rock climber.

Chola tse is a stunning peak with narrow snow and ice ridges and steep faces. It is on the ridge separating the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys, just north of Tabo che and just south of a 5420 meter pass used by Sherpas and trekkers alike to go between the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys. Interestingly, there is a lake just below this pass to the east, and in Tibetan 'cho' is lake, 'la' is pass, and 'tse' is peak so Chola tse means literally "lake pass peak". Unlike many mountains, there is no easy way to reach or descend from its summit, so any climb of the mountain is a serious mountaineering undertaking.

Through the 1950's 60's and 70's, Everest, Ama Dablam and the other named peaks of the Khumbu were climbed on by one but no permits were granted for Chola tse, so it remained unclimbed until 1982 when it was infact the last named but unclimbed peak in the Khumbu. In that year, Al Read from Mountain Travel secured a permit for the peak. In April 22 of that year, Vern Clevenger, John Roskelley, Galen Rowell and Bill O'Connor reached the summit via the South West Ridge. The climb was described as some twenty pitches of difficult ice climbing. The north face was successfully scaled in 1984.

The north and east faces of Chola tse can be seen from Dzongla and  Dughla, on the trail to Mount Everest base camp. We will design the itinerary as your interest and time.
