Cho Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu Expedition Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, has only recently become a popular mountain to climb. It is known to be one of the easer of the world's fourteen 8,000 meter mountain. Cho Oyu sits on both sides of the border of Nepal and Tibet, about 30 km. west of Mount Everest. It is the sixth highest mountain in the world (8201 meters). Cho Oyu is translated in Tibetan as "the goddess of the turquoise." The south face of Cho Oyu, facing Nepal, is quite steep and difficult, and is rarely climbed. The north side of the mountain, accessed from Tibet, is more moderate, and there is a relatively safe route to the summit. In the autumn of 1954, an Austrian team made the first ascent via this route. We also include a great trek option for those wanting to experience the beauty and challenge of the Himalaya without requiring any technical climbing skills.
