Cho Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu (8201m.) is the 6th highest mountain in the world and 7th highest of Nepal’s mountains. It is one of the easy accessed mountains for mountain expedition. The trail of this mountain is very easy to climb at its summit. The tantalizing Himalaya lies next to Mt. Everest in the Khumbu region between Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse.

Mt. Cho Oyu is one of the easiest mountains among fourteen other 8 thousanders all over the world. It is climbed more than 500 times after it was first conquered by Herbert Tichi, an Austrian citizen in 19th October, 1954. The success of the climbers to summit the mountains is because of its easy ascending trail of the expedition.

Cho Oyu is relatively easier expedition in comparison to other mountains over technical and geographical aspects. Climber needs experience of high mountaineering and skill of climbing too. West face of the mountain is favorably used because it has two short technical sections to reach at the top.  The summit includes Nangpa La Pass. This pass is used as the route of Khumbu people for trading with Tibetans.

Cho Oyu means in Tibetan language “The Turquoise God”. According to the folktale of Khumbu people, Cho Oyu fell in love with the Goddess Chomolungma (Tibetan name of Mt. Everest). But Chomolungma got married with Mt. Makalu. Being sad by the act of Chomalungma, Cho Oyu never married and thus it faces opposite of the Chomolungma i.e. Cho Oyu is opposite of the Mt. Everest.

Cho Oyu expedition provides the opportunity to explore Cho Oyu National Park and its beautiful view around there. The trek to Advanced Base Camp and further three base camps are set before climbing the top of the summit. It needs special permit for the expedition members to climb Cho Oyu before starting the expedition. The expedition can be carried by anyone who is physically healthy and fit. Climber should have experience of high altitude mountain climbing to make successful expedition. It needs enough acclimatization while expediting the peak.
