The Cholatse, also known as Jobo Lhaptshan, is situated in the Khumbu section of the Mahalangur Himal of the Nepalese Himalaya.
The Cholatse is connected to Taboche by a long ridge. The Chola glacier descends from the east face. The north and east faces of the Cholatse can be seen from Dughla, on the trail to the Mount Everest base camp. The south and west faces can be seen on the trail to the Gokyo-valley and Cho Oyu base camp.
First Ascent: 22.04.1982 by an American expedition (Vern Clevenger, Galen Rowell, John Roskelley and Bill O'Connor).
