Cho Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu meaning “Turquoise goddess” in Tibetan language proves its name by turning turquoise around dusk is also the 6th highest peak of the world at the elevation of 8,021m. Cho Oyu was, is and always will be the pride of Nepal and has been helping Nepal spread its existence and name to world since its first climb. Although the first ever attempt was made by an expedition team consisting Sir. Edmund Hillary but the first successful ascend was made by Austrian expedition on October 19, 1952.

The mountain standing tall at the Tibetan border is technically challenging and requires  assistance of a trained personnel with some experience on hand on the other hand explorers are required to maintain a standard level of fitness with good amount of physical trainings before the ascend. Mountains like Everest, Makalu, Chomo lonzo, Gyachung Kang, Nuptse, Loptse. Changtse and many others can be witness within a linear distance of 2 miles.

This mountain is a gigantic bulk of sweeping snow slopes and clean glaciated lines which is the most noble and impressive thing to witness at 8000m peak. The elegant North West face of Cho Oyu brings us up fairly easy angled 30 degree snow slopes. There is one steep section barrier to link at 6800m. To overcome the debacles at high altitude our trained guides will fix lines at steeper sections. Overall the mountain as well as the trek is thrilling and elegant. The days of exhausting and tough walk are worth when we see the world from the height of almost end of the world in vertical way.
