Mount Changtse is located adjacently north of Everest hence the name Changtse which is Tibetan for north peak. 2 other well-known peaks of the Everest-group; Lhotse (4th highest mountain in world) and Nuptse mean respectively south and west-peak. Mount Changtse was first ascended in October 1982; officially by a German expedition; but in fact it had already been climbed by the Dutch climber Johan Takes; only 11 days before. I bet the Germans must have thought the peak was still virgin…. takes was a member of the 1982 Dutch Everest-expedition (Tibetan side; east Rongbuk), and climbed the mountain apparently without a permit against the will of the other expedition members. Nowadays the mountain receives little attention; only 1 or 2 (Chinese) additional expeditions have been listed.
Mountaineering expedition price varies depending on group size, expedition category (full board / base camp service), your budget, itinerary design, accommodation (budget to 5 star), level of service above the base camp, the number of climbing guides, base camp staffs, mode of transport you prefer and many other factors. The price range for the same trip can vary widely. Our prices are competitive one as we believe in more time visit than once.
