ABI peak climbing
Abi Peak which is situated in the Khumbu Himal range located in the Mahalangur Solukhumbu region of Nepal. The mountain is also known as Cholo and also by 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 saltitude acclimatisation. Mount 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 recognised route is Lukla-Merala-BC.
