Cho Oyu Expedition


    Mt. Cho Oyu rising 8,201 m above sea level at 86.9* E and 28* N, is situated in the middle section of the Himalayas. It is the sixth highest peak in the world and is the highest & easiest of the more straightforward 8000m peaks and an excellent choice for mountaineers wishing to climb their first 8000-meter peak. Austrian first climbed it in 1954. The Indian and German team also did ascent to this peak 1n 1958 and 1964 respectively. Till to date many expedition teams Reached on it summit. Just before on 2004 has been regarded as the Golden jubilee of this Cho Oyu Mountain. All of the 14 peaks over 8000 meters, has the highest success rate because it is perhaps the easiest of the 8000-meter summits. Then it is also short and direct, with a few small technical sections climbed in safety using fixed ropes. So it is quite popular and there can be many expeditions on the mountain at one time. 

    Normally, three camps are set in the approach. From base camp, we trek to the advance base camp at 5,700m. We climb through steep moraines to a shoulder at 6,400m where camp I, is set up. From here we climb up through the ridge and fix rope to climb a 50m high sera barrier split by a ramp to set up the camp II at about 7,000m. The climbing becomes easier and places our camp III at 7,500m on the northwest face. The summit is a long way at the far end with huge snowfields. Normally we can organize from both sides Nepal and Tibet but most of the Cho Oyu expedition teams climb the peak via Tibet side due to the easy technique through the Tibet. Since our company "Nepal Discovery Treks and Expedition" is conducting the expedition from both sides.
