Mountain Expedition 7000m
Cho Oyu Expedition
8201m / 26,906 ft Expedition to the Cho Oyu summit via the normal route in 32 days
Cho-Oyu is the world's sixth highest mountain and considered by many as the easiest of the fourteen 8000m peaks. This is mainly due to the ease of access which is achieved utilizing vehicles to the base of the mountain and a two day trek in hiking boots to the base camp at 5600m. The climbing route has only a few short technical sections yet is direct, allowing climbers to gain altitude without covering a lot of distance.
As with all ascents at high altitude the climbing is strenuous and requires a high standard of fitness but as a peak to experience the thin air at 8000m for the first time, Cho-Oyu is ideal. A small team of Sherpa’s will accompany the expedition to provide the carrying power and to ensure the high camps are well stocked. Summit Himalaya has operated eleven successful expeditions to Cho-Oyu, with team members reaching the summit on nine of these trips!
Our familiarity with the mountain and our ability to transcend the logistical hurdles, as well as providing excellent base camp food and comfort, makes the possibility of taking those final steps onto an 8200m summit that much greater.
- Experience high altitude climbing on an 8,000m peak
- Ideal training peak for Everest
- Visit the fascinating cities of Lhasa and Kathmandu
