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.

Truly memorable trip
This was our second trek with the Mountain Hawk team and it was just as well organised and fun as the first. We were in regular contact with Prem via telephone and skype during the build up to our trek.

Prem was my guide and friend during my Everest Base Camp - Gokyo trek in Oct 2007. Prem is an excellent guide in many ways. He has great knowledge of the mountains, the people, the cultures and special things that only an experienced local guide can provide

Recommend Mountain Hawk for anyone going trekking in Nepal
Mountain Hawk were recommended to me by friends who trekked with them last year on their honeymoon. From the organising perspective, couldn't have been easier. Prem was quick to reply to any emails as I worked out exactly what I wanted to, which ended up going to Chitwan NP and doing the Everest Base Camp trek.
