Cholatse is a very challenging and very technical expedition in Nepal. Cholatse peak also known as Jabo Lhaptshan lies in famous Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya. Cholatse is connected to Taboche (6,501m) by a long ridge. The Cholatse glacier descends off the east face.It is an altitude 6440  at meters.

Moreover, The challenging South West Ridge of Cholatse is a hidden gem of the Himalaya and a solid mountaineering objective for experienced climbers. Cholatse 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 Taboche and just south of a 5420 meter pass used by Sherpas and trekers alike to go between the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys. Cholatse peak expedition combines with famous Everest Gokyo trek.  Situated in hidden valley of Khumbu, Gokyo valley is arguable the most dramatic and interesting village of Sherpa. Cholatse is a stunning peak with narrow snow and ice ridges and steep faces.

Similarly, 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 Cholatse 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. The trek up to Namche Bazaar and the crossing of the Renjo La via the villages of Thame and Lungden was simply breathtaking and beautiful. This was an unexpected highlight of the expedition.
