The Mount Cho Oyu expedition itinerary covers most highlights of the Everest massif including other towering Mountains on Earth. Mountain Cho Oyu is situated in the Mahalangur mountain range in the depth of the Everest Region, Solukhumbu District, Nepal.

Climbing cho oyu is equally popular as a Mount Cho Oyu expedition in the Nepalese Himalayas. The total distance from Gokyo lakes to Cho Oyu base camp trek is 39 kilometers (24 miles) one way. Fabulous glacial masses and pinnacles encompass this area with a full front-facing perspective on the whole Cho Oyu climbing trail from the tent. The climbing route to the highest point is around 12 km long with a height gain of 2,501 meters.

Reaching out to Cho Oyu summit day takes around 8 hours. The expedition Cho Oyu route takes us over moderately easy snow and rock; it is now only the weather and altitude that can stand in our way of conquering this grand 8,000 meters peak. Moreover, Cho Oyu is the world’s sixth-highest mountain and is considered to be the easiest of the fourteen 8,000m peaks.

The Cho Oyu summit offers a gorgeous view of Cho Oyu (8,188m) itself, and some other highest mountains including Mt. Lhotse and Everest. Furthermore, the expedition team can see Mount Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse Shar (8,383m), Makalu (8,475m), Baruntse (7,720m), and Pumori (7,161m).

The usual climbing to Cho Oyu is outstanding. Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler, and Pasang Dawa Lama are the first-time ascender on October 19, 1954, likewise, Maciej Berbeka and Maciej Pawlikowski did the summit on 12 February 1985.

Fundamentally, the Cho Oyu trekking, and expedition take 7 weeks, beginning and finishing off with Kathmandu, town. Since Mount Cho Oyu is situated between Nepal and Tibet, the Cho Oyu Expedition begins in Kathmandu with days distributed for the fundamental administrative work and allows prior to heading into Tibet. Since there is no official route to reach Cho Oyu from Nepal, it is usually climbed from the Tibet Side. Only 14 climbers have made it to the summit of Cho Oyu till today.

Cho Oyu mountain is the 6th top most popular expedition on the planet in terms of height. The Cho Oyu summit is located between Nepal and Tibet, China. It is depending on the conditions but is often complicated to ascend. Professional climbers should attempt this mountain, though it is partially saved with fixed ropes.

The Cho Oyu climbing endeavor opens climbers to the old culture of Tibet. While the test of high-elevation climbing can’t be belittled, the technical nature of ascending is moderately difficult. Our course is made out of snow slants with short areas of ice and rock scrambling.

According to its expedition history, Cho Oyu has had around 3,138 fruitful risings with 44 fatalities recorded. Cho Oyu’s death rate 1.4%, is the least among the 14 – eight thousand pinnacles. The vast majority of this death have been brought about by falls, torrential slides, and elevation disorders.

Before climbing Cho Oyu, we recommend that you complete at least two to five international or high-altitude climbing expeditions. Denali, Aconcagua, Mount Vinson, and Himalayan mountains such as Mera Peak Climb and Island Peak Climb are all excellent training.
