Cho Oyu Expedition

  • Duration: 43days
  • Price: USD 18000
  • Trip Code: MHM 02

Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world and, even though it is regarded as a technically straightforward 8000m peak, its altitude is a serious undertaking and requires careful preparation and a high level of fitness. It is said that Cho Oyu means ‘Goddess of Turquoise’, as its stark shadows appear this colour in the light of the setting sun when viewed from Tibet. This mountain is a vast bulk of sweeping snow slopes and clean glaciated lines; a most noble and impressive first 8000m peak. The elegant North West face of Cho Oyu brings us up fairly easy angled 30 degree snow slopes. There is one steep serac barrier to negotiate at 6800m.Where necessary, fixed lines will be placed to aid us on steeper sections.

Following our acclimatisation walks in Nylam and Tingri, we will arrive at the Chinese Base Camp where we begin our exciting preparations to move up to Base Camp at 5700m via an Intermediate Camp at around 5400m, to aid acclimatization.

The expedition is a  guided, professionally-led expedition. This means you will have a strong  Sherpa  climbing guide  who has  many experience of climbing at high altitude.  thus increasing your chance of success but You should have suitable experience to enable you to be relatively self-sufficient  unsupervised.
