The name Abi refers to the twin peaks of Cholo (6,097 m) and Kangchung
(6,063
m) which lie at the northern end of the splendid Gokyo Valley and
both can be climbed under one permit. While the peaks look spectacular, the
climbing on their respective ridges from the col between them is steep but
straightforward.
The peaks are best approached from the southern side and a base camp
can be made after breaking off from the trekking route to Cho La (5,330 m).
However, both peaks can be approached from the north side as illustrated in
the photograph.
