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.

Travelled with Mountain Hawk
Sarah and I travelled with Mountain Hawk Trekking to Everest Base Camp in Jan 2012. Prem was recommended to us by friends as a very professional and knowledgeable guide and we were not disappointed.

Great beer guide around Kathmandu
I trekked to EBC in January 2012 with Prem as our guide. What a fantastic bloke he is, brilliant guide, ensures that food at guest houses is tip top and also a great beer guide around Kathmandu on our return.

A great big thank you to Prem and Badri for making our recent Mountain Hawke Himalayan adventure a wonderful experience! As two women travelling alone, it was really reassuring to have everything go so smoothly.

Experienced and extremely knowledgeable guide about trekking
We completed the Everest Base Camp in December 2008 with Prem and we had an incredible time. When you have no previous serious trekking experience and no experience in Nepal, travelling with the right guide is the single most important element of your trip and we have to say we felt very lucky.
