Re: Interesting

yes. Below is Chola Tsho (tsho is Lake in Nepali) and above is Chola Tse (tse is peak in Nepali but they use also the word ri as in Pumo ri or Gokyo ri, it's the same traslation). They say La for the cols, as the famous Cho La, the pass from Gokyo to Everest trek. The name Cho is frequent in the area under the great presence of Cho Oyu.

Re: What a mountain!

the swiss Uli Steck climbed the North face (right in the image) alone. It's difficult to believe seeing the mountain.
