Cho Oyu (8188m) is the sixth highest mountain on Earth. It lies 20km west of Everest at the border of Nepal and Tibet. For ease of access, it is generally climbed through the Northern side (Tibet). Mt. Cho Oyu Expedition encounters a strenuous climb. Although the most accessible Eight-Thousander peak, you must be physically fit to climb Cho Oyu Peak.
Cho Oyu is a Tibetan phrase that stands for “Turquoise Goddess.” It is a part of the vast Himalayan range, Mahalangur Himal, which comprises of pristine peaks like Mount Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), and Ama Dablam (6812m). The Tibetan route offers moderate slopes during the climb. The ease of access until the Chinese Base Camp (5150m) makes it one of the most sought after climbing peaks. Observe the fantastic landscape, culture, and rich tradition of Tibet. Known as “Roof of the world,” Tibet lies at the average altitude of 4,500 meters, making it the highest inhabited region in the world.
Cho Oyu Expedition begins upon your arrival in Kathmandu. After preparing your Chinese Visa and climb permits, you’ll embark on a scenic trans-Himalayan flight to Lhasa. The capital of Tibet Autonomous Region of China, Lhasa, is home to a UNESCO designated site of Potala Palace. Enjoy a beautiful tour inside Lhasa and visit some of the most sought-after destinations such as Norbulingka Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street, and Drepung and Sera Monastery. Embark on an adventurous drive along the harsh Tibetan landscape. Xegar lies 505km southwest of Lhasa and goes past beautiful Shigatse Province. From here, you’ll take a Yak caravan and approach the Chinese Base Camp and then Cho Oyu Base Camp (5650m).
The following twenty-five days will indulge in climb preparation, training, acclimatization, and brief ascents. A short trek will take you up to Advanced Base Camp. From here, you’ll approach Camp I. The trail in-between Camp 1 and Camp 2 is the most difficult. Tackle the icefall and technical ridges to reach Camp 3 (7600m). You can use Camp 2 as the Launchpad for the summit, which only takes 7-10hr of climbing. Once at the peak of Cho Oyu, you can catch the panoramic view of the Tibetan landscape in the backdrop. To your left, you will get the scenic view of the majestic Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu.
