Mt Cho Oyu Expedition

38 Days 37 Night

Trip Introduction

Mt Cho Oyu Expedition For anyone who has ever dreamed of climbing one of the world’s highest 8000 m. 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 8,000 m. 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.
