This Cholatse peak is connected to Taboche (6,501m) via a long ridge, while the Chola Glacier descends off its east face. While en route to Mount Everest base camp, Dughla offers glimpses of Cholatse’s north and east faces. The southwest ridge was first scaled by Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell, John Roskelley, and Bill O’Connor on April 22, 1982. In 1984, the north face was successfully climbed. Ueli Steck completed the first solo ascent via the north side on April 15, 2005. To reach the summit of Mt.

Trip Info

This expedition is for climbers who are planning a technical challenge climbing at 6000M – 64000M altitude. Climbers are expected to be exceptionally fit. As the altitude is high, this expedition is for advanced-level climbers and not for beginners.

Best time:
Spring and autumn are the best times to visit the stunning Cholatse expedition. The lovely walk in the area is ideal in the spring and fall because of the predictable weather and comfortable temperatures. During these times of the year, the region experiences fewer weather-related difficulties. The Cholatse expedition will be a blast for you.

Weather & Temperature:
Spring (March, April, May): The weather is slightly warm in low-lying areas and moderate in higher altitudes throughout this time, providing many opportunities for breathtaking views of the mountains and surroundings.

Summer (June, July, and August): In Nepal, it is also monsoon time. The weather is now hot and occasionally rainy. Nearly every day is cloudy with sporadic evening thunderstorms.

Autumn (September, October, and November): Due to the arrival of winter and the conclusion of the summer, this period is regarded as the best travel season in Nepal. The views of the mountains and the weather are both very wonderful. The presence of trekkers and adventure groups enhances the beauty of the trekking paths.

Winter (December, January, and February): The temperature is chilly, the sky is clear, and there are sporadic snowfalls at high altitudes throughout this period. It will be quite challenging to cross high-altitude passes as the majority of the lodges close. The morning and evenings can get very chilly, with temperatures occasionally falling below zero, but the days are bright and pleasant.

A trekking permit, Climbing permit, and Sagarmatha National Park permits are required during the trip. These permits will be prepared by us and are included in the cost.

You are required to obtain travel insurance that should cover any comprehensive costs you might incur due to accidents or medical difficulties while visiting Nepal.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ).

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
