At 8201 metres, Cho Oyu is the 6th highest mountain in the world and one of the most popular entrances into the realm of the 8000 metre mountains. The Cho Oyu Expedition is technically easier than the other 8000 metre mountains and is thus a good stepping stone to prepare oneself for the serious high altitude demands of Everest or the more technical 8000 metre mountains.
The Cho Oyu Expedition lasts about 10 weeks starting and ending in Kathmandu. Since Mount Cho Oyu is situated between Nepal and Tibet, the Cho Oyu Expedition starts in Kathmandu with days allocated for the necessary paperwork and permits before heading into Tibet. The journey to Cho Oyu basecamp can be done either via flights to Lhasa or via land through Rasuwagadhi border.
The Cho Oyu Expedition consists of very short but scenic treks to Cho Oyu basecamp, intermediate and advanced camp followed by 3 climbing camps that feature very limited and short steep and technical sections making it perfect to get used to the demands on extremely high altitude. In addition, the easier nature of the climb coupled with the time allocated on the mountain ensures more successful ascents on the mountain.
