Cho Oyu Expedition (8201m)

Duration: 47 Days   |   PhotosDownload

We organize the Cho Oyu expedition from the Nepal side. The name Mt. Cho Oyu is called 'Goddess of Turquoise'. As the goddess is 'chomo' in Tibetan language and turquoise is 'yu'. Hence, 'Chomo Yu' has changed into Cho Oyu in course of changing civilization generation after generation. It is also reported that Cho Oyu is also called 'Mighty Head' meaning 'god's head'. On clear weather, the view from the summit plateau of Cho Oyu is breathtaking. One can view the entire panorama of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, Ama Dablam and other peaks of the Khumbu.

Mt. Cho Oyu stands high above the Tibetan plains on the border of Nepal with its mighty height 8,201m above the sea level. The expedition is an ideal choice for mountaineers ready to test themselves on the eight thousanders. Mount Cho Oyu, the world's sixth-highest mountain was first to step onto the snow-dome summit were the Australians - S. Moechler, H. Tichy and P. Dawa Lama from Nepal in 1954. This majestic Himalaya is arguably the most technically straightforward, accessible and safe to climb. These days, there are more than four different routes on Cho Oyu with the Tibetan north side offering several worthy possibilities.
