Mt. Chomo Lonzo, located in the Kangshung valley and separated from Makalu by Sakietang-La, Chomo Lonzo has three different summits. In 1954 Lionel Terrary and Jean Couzy made the first ascent of the South Summit (7,790m) from Nepal, and in 1993 a Japanese party made a second ascent from Tibet side, following a dangerous line under seracs. Neither the Central Summit (7,540m.) nor the North Summit (7,199m.) had any ascents before our expedition. The northeast face seemed challenging but risky, with much snow and threatening seracs. Cultural Treks and Expedition will start this trip from the Lhasa and it takes almost 4 days arrive to Chomo Lonzo base camp after having some day’s sight seeing around Lhasa.

  • Solo climbing of Chomo Lonzo (7,790m.) by Valery Babanov
