Abi Peak Climbing

Trip Highlights

Duration: 24 Days

Type of Trek: Tea House + Camping

Max Altitude: 6097 m.

Minimum Pax: 1 +

Mode of travel: Flight

Grade: Strenuous

Mt Abi (6097m.) is situated in the Khumbu Himal range located in the Mahalangur Solukhumbu region of Nepal. The mountain is also known as Cholo and Kangchung from the pass that reaches it – the Kangchung La. Mountaineers planning to climb the 8,000ers, consider Mt Abi as a perfect training mountain for ice climbing and high altitude acclimatization. Mt Abi requires careful ascent due to the technical ridges towards its peak. This peak was first issued a climbing permit in 2002 and although it is classed as moderate, it has been climbed less than 6 times. The recognized route is Lukla-Merala-BC.

The description to cli mbing Mount Abi (6097 m), a trekking peak in Nepal’s Khumbu region, painted a picture of accessible 45°- 50° snow slopes up a straight-forward ridge to the summit but as a footnote mentions that it hadn’t seen many ascents.
