Changtse Expedition 2017

Changtse Expedition 2017

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.
