  • Expedition
  • Mount Cho Oyu is the sixth-highest mountain in the world with an altitude of 8201m. The Cho Oyu mountain is an easier mountain climb other than the 8000m mountains. Because Cho Oyo is situated in Nepal and Tibet, this expedition starts from Kathmandu with the days allocated with the necessary paper works and the permits before heading into Tibet. From Kathmandu to Cho Oyu Basecamp, the journey can be done via a flight to Lasha or via land through Rasuwagadhi Boarder. The Cho Oyu expedition is technically straightforward, accessible, and safe to climb.

     The first mountain climber of Cho Oyu was Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jochler, and Sherpa pasang lama on October 19, 1954, during an Austrian expedition. And now many Expedition teams have successfully reached the on its summit. From the summit of Cho Oyu, the view of mount Everest, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Ama Dablam are breathtaking moments for climbers.
