Cho Oyu Expedition

Daily Tour 44 day
Hanoi, Vietnam Nepal

Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth highest mountain at 8,201 meters, lies on the Nepal / Tibet border. Interested in seeing how you do above 8000 meters? There is no better testing ground, ease of access and ease of route means that you can save your energy for the climbing. The North West Face, now considered the normal route, is fairly straight forward, with only a couple hundred meters requiring fixed rope. The success rate on Cho Oyu is higher than any other 8000 meter peak, don’t be fooled though; it is still hard – requiring three camps, including one at 7500 meters. Camp one can usually be reached without climbing on snow. Advanced base camp offers a terrific view over the Nangpa La to Nepal and the Khumbu valley.

Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m is the most popular 8000 meter peak for climbing in Nepal & Tibet. Cho Oyu expedition would be the best choice for the mountaineers who want to stand on the summit of 8000 meter peak due to its straight forward climbing with minimal objective danger and less technically demanding. Climbing on Cho Oyu has the higher rate of success than any other 8000 meter peaks in Nepal & Tibet. We arrange both the logistic support to ABC and fully guided climbing on Cho Oyu mountaineering. A short sightseeing tour can be arranged before proceeding to the climbing on Cho Oyu.

From Cho Oyu base camp, we trek to the advance base camp at 5,700m. We climb through steep moraines to a shoulder at 6,400m where cam I is set up. From here we climb up through the ridge and fix rope to climb a 50m high serac barrier split by a ramp to set up the Cho oyu camp II at about 7,000m. Climbing Cho Oyu becomes easier and places our Cho Oyu camp III at 7,500m on the North West face. Cho Oyu summit is a long way at the far end with huge snow fields.
