    Mt. Cho Oyu 8,201m.Expedition Mount Cho Oyu is the 6th highest mountain in the world located a short distance to the west from Mt. Everest and Lhotse (the 4th highest) in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal along the Tibetan border China. Its towering peak stands with Mt. Everest well above the surrounding mountains. It became a familiar landmark to climbers ascending Everest’s North face. It is just west from Cho Oyo is Nangpa-La, the main trade route between the Nepal Namche Bazaar (Khumbu Region) and Tibet. However, Cho Oyu’s proximity to the Nangpa La has earned it the distinction among some climbers as being the easiest 8,000m. a beautiful mountain which attract for the every trekkers and
    climbers. The Mount Cho-Oyu was first climbed on October 19, 1954 by Austrian Joseph Joechler, Herbert Tichy Nepal Side.
    There are two climbing routes, one from the south (Nepal side) and another from the north, which is the west ridge and commonly referred to as the normal route. The mountain is semi-technical with short ice cliffs a rock band and several crevasses. We provide both full board and base camp logistic services on Cho Oyu.We recommend using the full board services for safety, a secure mountaineering experience and your best opportunity to reach the summit.
    However, some experienced climbers may opt for climbing without support above base camp from a guide or
    Sherpa.
