Cho Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu Expedition (8188m/26865ft) the sixth highest mountain in the world, located at a short distance to the west from Everest in the Khumbu region of Eastern Nepal along the Tibetan border. The Cho Oyu Expedition is technically easier than the other 8000 meter mountains and is thus a good stepping stone to prepare oneself for the serious high altitude demands of Everest or the more technical 8000-meter mountains. 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. The Cho Oyu expedition lasts about 10 weeks starting and ending in Kathmandu. Since Mount Cho Oyu is situated between Nepal and Tibet, the Cho Oyu Expedition starts in Kathmandu with days allocated for the necessary paperwork and permits before heading into Tibet. The journey to Cho Oyu basecamp can be done either via flights to Lhasa or via land through the Rasuwagadhi border. The Cho Oyu expedition consists of very short but scenic treks to Cho Oyu basecamp, intermediate and advanced camp followed by 3 climbing camps that feature very limited and short steep and technical sections making it perfect to get used to the demands on extremely high altitude. In addition, the easier nature of the climb coupled with the time allocated on the mountain ensures more successful ascents on the mountain.
