In a spectacular corner of the Everest region lies Cholo (6097m/20,003ft), one of the twin peaks of Abi Himal. A mecca for mountaineers, this is a dramatic region where several of the world's highest mountains, including Everest and Cho Oyu, dominate the skyline. Building on our success in 2016, World Expeditions have put together an exciting itinerary to climb Cholo, a rarely climbed peak due to its hidden but highly dramatic location just south of the giant south face of Cho Oyu, at the very northern end of the Gokyo valley. We will access the peak over the dramatically situated Renjo La, with the Gokyo valley stretching out before us and views into Tibet, to the wild upper Bhote Kosi. Cholo sees very few expeditions and it is incredibly unique to have such an off the beaten path experience close to some of the main trekking routes in the Khumbu region. For an experienced and motivated mountaineer, this expedition will push you to new heights in one of the world's premier climbing destinations. This mountain offers the total package in terms of mountaineering in the Nepal Himalaya, with at times technical climbing justly rewarded. The view from the summit is hands down the best mountain view in the Himalaya, with breathtaking vistas spanning 360 degrees to across the whole region. You can gaze upon both the North and South Col of Everest which is very rare, along with Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. The secret is out and Cholo is set to become one of the most sought after objectives for mountaineers looking to go to the next level. This is a trip which truly captures the spirit of adventure and will leave you with indelible memories of adventure among the highest mountains on earth.
