Submit Review

Cho Oyu (8,201m | 26,906ft) is an iconic mountain and the world’s 6th tallest peak.

Standing on the Chinese – Nepalese border, it towers above the high Tibetan plains to the North and the lush green pastures of Nepal to the South, just 30km west of Mount Everest.

While Cho Oyu is a phenomenal goal in her own right, if you have any ambition to climb Mt. Everest or the famed 14 – This expedition is the perfect entry point into the world of 8000m climbing.

Cho Oyu Expedition Highlights:

  • Experience Tibetan culture first hand
  • Opportunity to climb two 8000-meter giants in a single season
  • Tackle the famous "ice cliff" and "Yellow Band"
  • Watch the sunrise over Mt. Everest from the summit of Cho Oyu, hands down the best view of Everest

Why is Cho Oyu the perfect entry point to 8000m Climbing?

  • Comparatively, Cho Oyu has a low objective hazard compared to the other 8000m peaks with low rock and icefall and more predictable avalanche conditions.
  • The climbing route is more moderate and forgiving with a few technical sections, and therefore considered to be the ‘easiest and most achievable’ of the fourteen 8000m peaks.
  • It offers a great, stable environment and benefits from better weather, allowing you more time to climb and more opportunity to get above 8000m and test your body at extreme altitude
