Comparatively Cholatse Peak is very hard to climb rather to other climbing peaks in Nepal. Mount Cholatse is technically difficult as we need to be careful in ascent.

Take an early flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport, seat at the north side to get a better view. Upon arrival at Lukla bazaar, meet our entire crew, have breakfast, and go. As you hike from Lukla to Phakding, the trail is one of the easiest parts as the landscapes go simply up in ascending order. The journey goes further with a gentle climb up the mountainside of the Dudh Koshi river. Passing several Sherpa localities, we reach Bengkar village.
04 Day Namche Bazaar hikes (3,440m/11,286 feet.), 6 hours
The trail ascends through the Koshi riverbank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. We continue along the trail with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass by the tiny Monjo village. We come to the Sagarmatha National Park office where a park entrance fee is paid. We follow a short walk along the riverbed of this valley where the major river meets each other. Crossing over the Hillary bridge, the trek begins the steep ascent to Namche Bazar. On the way, we have excellent views of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m.). Surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges, Namche Bazaar is a central hub of the area for food, trekking gear, and other necessary goods.
We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Sengboche airstrip (3,720m), from where we will slowly ascent towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments) and hill station. We go to a hill station to have an excellent view of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawche, Kwangde, and many other snow-capped mountains at 360 deg angles. We walk further to Khumjung village which is the largest village in Khumbu, at the foothill of the sacred peak Khumbila. We can also visit the Khumjung monastery. It is a small settlement of Sherpa community.
The trail ascends up to Mongla (4000m) ridgeline. A short stop for photography rest because Mong la hill station offers an excellent mountain view of several tallest mountains. You trek steeply descend passing through Phortse Tenga and from there, the trail climbs steeply to Dhole, through rhododendron and birch forest festooned with hanging mosses and lichens.
After Dhole, the trek leads steadily along the side of the valley, where the small and thorny bushes give way to scrub juniper as the altitude increases. The trail passes many summer settlements, yaks are taken to these pastures to graze in the summer months. Ahead of you are excellent views of Cho Oyu, while back down the valley are the peaks of Kantega and Thamserku.
After Machhermo, the trek leads over a very scenic path to Pangka, descend slightly, following one of the melt-water Rivers which flow down the west side of the Ngozumpa Glacier. We climb a steep rocky incline into the valley by the side of the glacier, passing the first of the holy lakes. We soon arrive at the second lake, crossing the path which heads across the glacier to Cho La. The third lake known as Dudh Pokhari will appear and on its eastern shore is the settlement of Gokyo. Walk along with the Gokyo lake corner, you can reach the Gokyo resorts.
Gokyo Ridgeline is situated by the side of Ngozumpa glacier, the biggest glacier of Nepal. We walk to the glacial Gokyo lakes. An optional trip will be to discover the 5th lake on your day trip but if you are only physically fit. You can also Gokyo ridge hike to get a splendid view of the tallest Himalayas at 360 deg angle.
Leave Tagnag following the path alongside the stream through the yak pastures. On the way, we can see Cho La Pass locating at 5,420m/17,778 feet above the sea. Ascend to make our attempt to the Cho La top and descend down at Dzongla lodges.
Our off the beaten path adventure starts to Cholatse Base Camp after having breakfast. The rocky trail goes gradually climbs up with stunning views of Ama Dablam, Labuche Peak, and Pumori mountain. The journey takes roughly six hours to reach Cholatse base camp with a climbing crew.
It’s anything but an adaptable arrangement for moving according to the state of the climber. Along these lines, the Mountain Sherpa and individuals will decide where to set up an everyday schedule for the climbing time frame. In a typical manner, the group will put in a couple of days at the base camp arranging food and climbing gear. The highest point ordinarily pushes at 12 PM. So that group came to at top promptly in the first part of the day. Find stunning dawn, and encompassing perspective then, at that point hike down to base camp prior to getting influenced by heat. At long last, we wish for your prosperity to reach the summit.
There is no such guarantee that we can get quite favorable weather while climbing. So this day is used as a contingency in case we are unable to get the summit on an earlier day. If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we wisely have to postpone the program. Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.
Today on our journey, climbers can look at some of the wild animals like a mountain goat, musk deer and many species of Himalayan birds. There are monasteries as well at Pangboche and Phortse which were believed to have been constructed during the 16th century. The Pangboche village has also gained popularity as the highest settlement on earth.
A long day walk to get to Monjo village passing sherpa settlements such as Lagusasa, Namche Bazaar, Joresalle…etc.
We trek to Lukla with the same trail like we use on ascend. It is the last day of our trek. Upon arrival at Lukla, check the hotel and take a rest.
We board our early flight from Lukla to Kathmandu airport. Upon arrival at Kathmandu Tribhuvan international airport, we arrange a return transfer back to your hotel. In the afternoon, go shopping or request us to discover Kathmandu as a guided trip at an additional cost. In this way, the Cholatse expedition trip ends and we wish you a wonderful journey.
