Cho-Oyu Expedition (8201 m) - 41 Days

  • max altitude 8201 m
  • Group Type 2-12
  • Trip grade NA

Cho- Oyu is the world’s sixth highest mountain and considered by many as the easiest of the fourteen 8000m peaks. This is mainly due to the easy of access which is achieved utilizing vehicles to the base of the mountain and a two day trek in hiking boots to the base camp at 5600m. The climbing route has only a few short technical sections yet is direct, allowing climbers to gain altitude without covering a lot of distance.

Cho-Oyu expedition is an excellent opportunity for climbers to extend their experience to extreme altitudes and is highly recommended as a first 8,000m Peak, or as a steppingstone to an attempt on Everest. The comparative ease of access, lack of objective dangers and generally uncomplicated terrain makes Cho- Oyu the most attainable of the world’s highest mountains.

There are various expeditions that we have organized; we have put climbers on the summit, making H.E Nepal by far the most experienced and successful Nepalese operation on Cho- Oyu. Like all 8,000m Peaks, the climb is a serious undertaking and demands fitness, mountaineering skill and self-sufficiency from those considering it. We will leading ours self (H.E Nepal team) having good  experienced leadership on the Cho-ouy in our previous trip, a comfortable base camp, a strong Sherpa team  supplies Necessary things above Advance Base Camp. It is typical for climbers to use oxygen on summit day, so we include two bottles, plus a Top Out mask.

We travel overland from Kathmandu to Tibet via the Friendship Highway. Our journey takes us across the Tibetan Plateau, where we stop en- route to acclimatize, before reaching Chinese Base Camp. From here, we load up Yaks and trek to Cho- Oyu Base Camp, below the North West face. The route above Base Camp consists mainly of low-angled snow slopes up to 30° with one short but very steep section to bypass a sérac barrier at 6,400m. We use three camps on the mountain; the highest at 7,500m is the launch pad for the summit, which is reached in 5 to 8 hours under normal conditions.
