Mt. Cho-Oyu Expedition

Mt. Cho-Oyu Expedition

Photo Gallery


Cho Oyu, first attempted by the Austrian team of mountaineers via Tibet route in 1954, has only been gaining popularity since recently. Cho Oyu (8201 meters), the sixth highest mountain in the world is one of the easiest to climb among the other 8,000 meter high mountains. The south face of Cho Oyu, facing Nepal is steep and challenging, hence it’s rarely attempted. While, the north side of the mountain from Tibet side is relatively moderate, and has a safe route to the mountain as well. As a result, most of the Cho Oyu expedition is made via Tibet side due to the easier access and technique as discussed earlier.
