Cholaste Peak Climbing

Cholatse Peak is one of the important peaks in the Khumbhu region of Everest which has been gaining popularity for peak climbing in Nepal. There are many peaks in the region of Khumbhu including Mount Everest, Mount Amadablam, Mount Lhotse, among others, which are popular among the mountaineers for peak climbing. Cholaste Peak was first ascended via the southwest ridge on April 22, 1982 by four foreigners including Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell, John Roskelley and Bill O'Connor. After that it has been regularly climbed by the mountaineers and the adventure seekers. Cholaste Peak falls in the Himalayan Mountainous range of Nepal towards the northern part of Nepal. Mount Cholaste is connected to Taboche (6,500 meters) by a long ridge. The Chola glacier, which is an important part of the Cholaste Peak, descends off the eastern face of the Peak. Moreover, northern and the eastern faces of Cholaste can be seen from Dughla, which falls on the trail to the Mount Everest Base Camp.

The maximum altitude of Mount Cholaste Peak is 6,440 meters of altitude and the peak climbing brings with it the ultimate challenge and thrill of mountain climbing to the climbers.
