Trip Overview

First submitted in 1954 by a small Austrian/ Tibetan expedition, Cho Oyu is technically easier than most other “8000ers,” making it a great first 8000 meters' peak for climbers with previous high altitude climbing experience. We will climb Cho Oyu via the West Ridge/West Face, which has two short technical sections. Advanced Base Camp (ABC) will be established at 5800 meters, Camp I at 6500 meters, Camp II at 7100 meters and Camp III at 7400 meters.

Cho Oyu (8201 meters) is the 6th highest peak in the world, located on the Tibet and Nepal border, you will have a chance to experience the local Tibetan culture. The Tibetan myth of Cho Oyu (meaning Turquoise God) is that he fell in love with the Goddess. Cho Oyu is part of the Greater Himalaya, where the central Asia plateau meets the Indian subcontinent.
