Mount Cho Oyu​

Mount Cho Oyu

Mount Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth highest mountain at 8,201m, is located west of Mt. Everest along the Nepali-Tibetan border. Cho Oyu means “Turquoise Goddess” in Tibetan. A straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak without taking much risk.

Our itinerary begins by driving into Tibet through Kordari, crossing the Himalayas through the gorges of Bhote Koshi. It will require an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield. Summit day, though long and arduous, will be well worth it when the highest peaks in the world are in view.

Prior experience in mountain climbing is a necessary prerequisite for taking on the challenge of conquering Mt. Cho Oyu. This formidable 8000-meter peak is often misrepresented as an easy climb, but in reality, it demands a high level of physical fitness, technical expertise, unyielding determination to withstand extreme weather, and a willingness to be away from home for extended periods.

In order to facilitate your preparations for climbing Mt. Cho Oyu, we have put together a list of necessary pre-requisites.

Physical Fitness:

The key element of conquering Mt. Cho Oyu is the physical condition of climbers. An exceptional level of fitness is necessary for those attempting this challenge. A consistent and structured training program focused on mountaineering will be essential for anyone aiming to summit Mt. Cho Oyu.

Mountaineering Experience:

To participate in this climb, it is important for climbers to possess a considerable amount of mountaineering experience. Our preference is for climbers who have successfully summited several peaks within the 5000m-6000m range and at least one peak above 7000m. This guarantees that the climber is highly skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of mountaineering, including technical abilities in rock, snow, and ice, expertise in camping, and the capacity to endure long periods of time at high altitudes.
