Cho-oyu Expedition (13 days)

Tour Duration:

For anyone who has ever dreamed of climbing one of the world's highest 8000er mountains, Cho Oyu offers relatively easy access. Despite being the 6th highest mountain on the planet, Cho Oyu has the highest success rate among the world's fourteen 8,000er Himalayan peaks. The ascent to the summit is short and direct with a few small technical sections which can be climbed safely using fixed lines. The normal route may not be called a technically difficult climb. The access becomes easier also because of the fact that the mountain can be reached by four-wheel-drive vehicle and one can walk to the Camp 1 in hiking boots. However, climbing Cho Oyu is still a demanding undertaking, the mountain being one of the highest on earth.
Cho Oyu lies about 20km west of Mt. Everest on the Nepal-Tibet border. The mountain is also known as Mt. Qowowuyag and is situated in the middle section of the Himalayas. An Austrian team first climbed Cho Oyu in 1954 followed by the Indian and German teams in 1958 and 1964 respectively. Cho Oyu consists mainly of five ridges - Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and West with the Jabula Glacier on the north, Lanba Glacier on the south, and Gecongba Glacier.It was the third such peak climbed, and the first climbed by light expedition and in Autumn. The mountain was first climbed on October 19, 1954 via the north-west ridge by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition. Cho Oyu is sixth 8000 meters peak to be climbed, after Annapurna in June 1950, Mount Everest, Nanga Parbat and K2.
Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world at (8,201 meters/26,906 feet). Cho Oyu is known as being one of the easiest of the 8,000 meter peaks due to its straight forward approach and lack of objective dangers. Cho Oyu means “Goddess of Turquoise”, as its stark shadows appear this color in the light of the setting sun when viewed from Tibet. Cho Oyu It is located about 30 kilometers west of Mt Everest and straddles the border between Nepal and Tibet. Mount Cho-Oyu was first climbed on on October 19, 1954 by Austrian Joseph Joechler, Herbert Tichy, Pasang Dawa Lama (Nepal).There are two climbing routes, one from the south (Nepal side) and another from the north, which is the west ridge and commonly referred to as the normal route. The mountain is semi-technical with short ice cliffs a rock band and several crevasses. We provide both full board and base camp logistic services on Cho Oyu.We recommend using the full board services for safety, a secure mountaineering experience and your best opportunity to reach the summit. However, some experienced climbers may opt for climbing without support above base camp from a guide or Sherpa.
