OverviewItineraryClients EquipmentIncludes & ExcludesGallery


Cho Oyu lies about 20km west of Mt. Everest on the Nepal-Tibet border.For anyone who has ever dreamed of climbing one of the world’s highest 8000m mountains, Cho Oyu offers relatively easy access. Despite being the 6th highest mountain on the planet, Cho Oyu has the highest success rate among the world’s fourteen 8,000er Himalayan peaks. The ascent to the summit is short and direct with a few small technical sections which can be climbed safely using fixed lines. The normal route may not be called a technically difficult climb.
