alluvial fan coming down to what looks to be a lake?
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.
Thanks for the info Rafa and Merry Christmas!
and what a beautiful photograph... I fell in love with this peak when you showed us the pictures some days ago
the swiss Uli Steck climbed the North face (right in the image) alone. It's difficult to believe seeing the mountain.
Thanks for posting it. It brings back some good memories.
yes, it's a special peak, always present in the treks of Gokyo and Everest BC
