Positioned on the north east of Nepal and south of Tibet, Mt. Cho Oyu is the most popular above 8000 meter peak for Expedition in Tibet. For those mountaineers who want to achieve the goal of standing on 8000 meter Peak, Cho Oyu would be the best choice for the due to its straight forward climbing with minimal objective danger. Cho Oyu Expedition has the higher rate of success than any other 8000 meters mountains in Nepal and Tibet.

From the base camp, we begin our expedition to the advance base camp at 5,700m. We climb through steep moraines to a shoulder at 6,400m where the camp one is set up. From here we climb up through the ridge and fixed the rope to climb a 50m high serac barrier split by a ramp to set up the camp II at about 7,100m on an easy snow slope. The expedition becomes easier, we climb more gentle snow slopes and we place our camp III at 7,500m on the North West Face. The summit day consists of climbing on the intermediate snow slopes crossing though rock bands to the summit ridge and then ultimately to the flat snow, the summit.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of the AET adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.

Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
