MT. CHO OYUEXPEDITION

MT. CHO OYUEXPEDITION

(50 NIGHTS/ 51 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188m / 26,864 ft.) is the 6th highest mountain in the world. The peak lies 20km west to the Mt. Everest and is also at the border between Nepal and China. The first successful attempt to reach the summit of the Cho Oyu was made in 1954 by Sepp Jochler and Helmut Heuberger from Austria. The peak is an easier to climb eight-thousander and it is perfect for climbers attempting to climb an 8,000m peak for the first time. It takes lesser time to complete the trek when started from Tibet, however, if the expedition begins at Kathmandu, the experience is completely different and far more satisfying.

The Mt. Cho Oyu expedition (8,201m) 51 days tours begin at Lukla, and on their return from the summit, trekkers head back to Kathmandu via Lukla. There are mainly five ridges; the northwest, northeast, southwest, southeast and west ridges. Some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world can be seen during your journey to the mighty white mountain at the end of the Himalayan ranges. Trekkers get several opportunities to acclimatize during the trip. The Mt. Cho-Oyu Expedition in Nepal is known for the highest climb success rate. The beautiful Cho Oyu, also known as the Turquoise Goddess Peak, is a must-visit for the admirers of the Himalayan ranges.
