Cho Oyu Expedition from Tibet SideMt. Cho-Oyu (Mt. Qowowuyag) is the world’s sixth highest most popular mountain located between Nepal and Tibet.  The mountain 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. Cho Oyu climbing has the higher rate of success than any other 8000 meter peak climbing in Nepal & Tibet. The mountain was first climbed by Hebert Tichy in 1954. We arrange both the logistic support to ABC and fully guided Cho Oyu expedition.

Cho Oyu Expedition Advance BCAs per the expedition program our expedition team will fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa and we will have sightseeing around. 3 days drive takes us to Cho Oyu Base camp. All members will drive by 4WD land cruiser and expeditions equipments will be carried by truck via Kodari border and meet you at Cho Oyu Base camp.

Climbing History of Mt. Cho Oyo
a) First ascent in 1954 (Austrian).
b) 1959: First women's Himalayan expedition to an 8,000m peak. (Two of the women and one Sherpa were killed in two separate avalanches.)
c) Approximately 465 people summit prior to spring, 1995.
d) Approximately two thirds of prior expeditions put at least one person on top.
e) Approximately 17 people killed on the mountain (making it by far the safest of the 8,000m peaks).

Cho Oyu Expedition Camp1Mt. Cho Oyu short note about climbing route:
Camp 1 is at altitude of 6400m. To reach at Camp 1 we have to walk for about 4-6 hours from advance base camp via an initial walk up the Gyabrag Glacier, up steep screc to a broad snow shoulder.

Camp 2 is at altitude of 7150 m.  We have to follow the snow ridge out of Camp 1 to a steep 50 meter ice wall, which provides most challenging climbing on this route. To make this ascent fixed ropes are necessary.

Camp 3 is located at altitude of 7500m. After 4/5 hours walk from Camp 2 we can reach camp 3. At this altitude there is a tremendous sense of effort to gain further height. The final summit push will be made from this camp and takes about 6-9 hours.
