Mt. CHO-OYU 8201m Expedition

Trip Duration 39 Days

Trip Grade:

Destination: Nepal

Activities: NA

Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m. is the 6th highest peak in the world (8201 meters) and is part of the Greater Himalaya, where the central Asia plateau meets the Indian subcontinent. Located on the Tibet and Nepal border, you will have a chance to experience the local Tibetan culture. The Tibetan folktale of Cho Oyu (meaning Turquoise God) is that he fell in love with the Goddess Chomolungma (Everest), who later married her closer neighbor to the southeast, Makalu. Cho Oyu never married and he now faces the opposite way of Chomolungma.
First summitted in 1954 by a small Austrian/Tibetan expedition, Cho Oyu is technically easier than most other “8000ers,” making it a great first 8000-meter peak for climbers with previous high altitude climbing experience.
