CHO OYU EXPEDITION (8,201m)

Overview

Overview of the Cho Oyu Expedition 

Cho Oyu, is the sixth highest mountain in the world and is considered by many as the easiest of the fourteen 8000m peaks, as per the lack of objective dangers and generally uncomplicated terrain. This is mainly due to the ease of access which is achieved utilising vehicles to the base of the mountain and a two-day trek in to the base camp at 5600m. Cho Oyu lies about 20km West of Mt. Everest, on the Nepal-Tibet border and is situated in the middle section of the Himalayas.

Cho Oyu, also known Mt. Qowowuyag, has the highest success rate among the world’s fourteen 8,000m Himalayan peaks. This is why it makes it ideal as a first 8,000m peak. The climbing route has only a few short technical sections yet is direct, allowing climbers to gain altitude without covering a lot of distance. However, as with all ascents at high altitude the climbing is strenuous and requires a high standard of fitness and be technically competent. A strong and experienced team of Sherpas will accompany the expedition to provide the carrying power of this trip.

Our familiarity with the mountain and our ability to transcend the logistical hurdles, as well as providing excellent base camp food, ample supplies and comfort makes it possible to taking those final steps onto a 8,201m-summit.
