Cho Oyu Expedition from Nepal - 46 days
Cho Oyu Expedition. 8201 meters from Tibet Side:: 6th Highest peak in the World

Cho Oyu - Sixth highest mountain in the world, literally known as the "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan Language is 8201 meters peak and located in Solu Khumbu district and about 30 km west of Mount Everest and Lhotse in to the head of the Gokyo Valley at the frontier of Nepal and Tibet. First climbed on October 19, 1954 by the Austrian team together with Sepp Jochler and Sherpa Pasang Dava through Tibet from the Nagpa La- not strictly a legal route. Cho Oyu was the fifth 8000 metre peak to be climbed, after Annapurna in June 1950, Mount Everest in May 1953, Nanga Parbat in July 1953 and K2 in July 1954.

The approach to the mountain from both Nepal and Tibet is easy, and the ascent through Tibet is not particularly difficult. Of all Nepal’s 8000m peaks, Cho Oyu is the second only to Everest in both the number of Expeditions successful ascents for more than 1600 climbers climbed till to Spring 2009.

Just a few kilometers west of Cho Oyu is Nangpa La (5,716m/18,753 ft), a glaciated pass that serves as the main trading route between the Tibetans and the Sherpas from Khumbu. Due to its proximity to this pass and the generally moderate slopes of the northwest ridge route, some climbers consider Cho Oyu to be the easiest 8000 meter peak to climb.

"Finally, the peak is reached, the infinite hardships are ended. The last nine hours fighting with the mountain; the time in the death zone above 24,000 foot, the weeks of privations and hardships, even the risk of one's life - is this reward itself really? Yes, certainly! Not because of fame but inner satisfaction: To have found the mountain as friend and have been so near to the sky." Sepp Jochler-First Summiter of Cho Oyu.

History about Cho Oyu Mountain

1952: First reconnaissance of Cho Oyu's Northwest face by Edmund Hillary and party.

1954: A small Austrian expedition, under the leadership of Herbert Tichy, make a spectacular first ascent without oxygen on the Northwest face. This new style of climbing big mountains with alpine techniques rewrote mountaineering history.

1958: Second ascent by an Indian expedition. Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama, who was part of the first ascent, reached the peak for the second time. First death on Cho Oyu.

1959: Four member of an expedition are killed in an avalanche during a failed international women's expedition.

1964: Controversial third ascent by a German expedition. No proof of reaching the summit. Two mountaineers die in Camp 4 of exhaustion at 7600 m (25,000 foot) height.

1978: The Austrian alpinists, Koblmuller and Furtner, succeeds in a spectacular ascent of the extremely difficult and dangerous southeast face.

1983: Reinhold Messner succeeds on his fourth attempt.

1985: First winter ascent of the South buttress by a Polish expedition. The South Buttress is the most difficult route on Cho Oyu to be completed successfully.

Route follow for trekking: Fly Kathmandu to Lukla and trek to Phakding, Namche, Dole, Gokyo Lake and Cho Oyu Base Camp.
