Mt Cho Oyu Expedition (North West Ridge) 45 Days


Mt.Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft), is the sixth highest mountain in the world and one of the Eight-thousandeer, is located in the Khumbu sub-section of the Mahalangur Himalaya -20 km west of the Mount.Everest.. Cho Oyu is highly recommended for the climbers to build up experience before attempting the Everest. The comparative ease of access, lack of objective dangers and generally uncomplicated terrain makes it the most attainable of the world's highest mountains.

Like every other Eight-thousander, Climbing Cho Oyu is a serious undertaking, which demands fitness, sound health, mountaineering skill and self-sufficiency from those considering it.

Sometime the expedition starts from Lhasa. One can spend few days exploring “The Forbidden City” of Lhasa and acclimatizing before heading to the Chinese Base Camp. One can trek to Cho Oyu Base Camp (4,910m/16,108ft), just below the North-West face. The route consists mainly of low-angled snow slopes with one short but very steep section to bypass a Serac barrier (6,400m/20,997ft). We establish three different camps during the summit; the highest at 7,500m/24,606ft is the launch pad for the summit, which can be reached in 5-8 hours under normal conditions.
