Mt. Cholatse Peak climbing 6335m  is one of the remarkable peaks with its narrow snow, ice ridge and steep faces situated at the Khumbu Himalayan region.  Mt. Cholatse peak is connected to just north of long Taboche ridge and South of 5,420m pass used by Sherpa and trekkers similar to travel between the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys.  Also, there is a lake which is just below this pass to the east part, according to the Tibetan language ‘Cho” is Lake, “La”is Pass and “Tse means Peak so Cholatse means literally known as “Lake Pass Peak”.

Mt. Cholatse peak is considered as one of the hardest peak climbing in comparison of the many other mountains peaks of the Nepal. It is not so easy to climb because of its way to reach or descend from its summit so that only few climbers were able to successfully ascend this peak.  So that climbers should have a previous mountaineering experiences or Knowledge as well as physically and mentally should be strong and fit.  This trail offers us an amazing landscape and dramatic views of Khumbu region, magnificent views of the Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and many more other peaks.  Also it will be one of the best destinations to explore and observe the Sherpa culture, their life style, tradition and old Monastery of Tengboche village. 

Mt. Cholatse  itself lies between the Khumbu and Gokyo valleys ,so its depends upon the which valley along you will lead because some of the routes from the Khumbu region are taken as most utmost, while the Gokyo side provides us  a couple more moderate options.  The North and East face of Cholatse can been seen from Dughla, on the trail to Mt. Everest Base Camp. It was firstly ascended through the Southwest ridge on April 22, 1982 by Vern Clevenger, John Roskelley, Bill O'Connor and Galen Rowell. And its North face was successfully ascended in 1984 and firs solo ascent was accomplished by Ueli Steck in 1984 throughout the North face side.  Starting flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and all the way to Gokyo, climb Gokyo Ri for acclimatization, trail continues trekking towards the Cholatse Base Camp and returning from Photse all the way down to Namche than we fly to Kathmandu.
