Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world standing on the China-Nepal border. Cho Oyu means “Turquoise Goddess” in Tibetan language. Austrians first climbed this mountain in 1954. The Indian and German team also conquered this peak in 1958 and 1964 respectively. Till today many expedition teams have successfully reached on its summit. Most of the Mount Cho Oyu expedition teams prefer Tibet side to climb it due the easy climbing technique route from there. Since 1998, our company "Monterosa Treks and Expedition" is also conducting the expedition from Tibet side to Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, Lhakpari and others.

Meeting and climbing information:
Expedition to Mount Cho Oyu begins after your arrival at Kathmandu where you meet our staffs of Monterosa Treks & Expedition in the airport and transfer you to hotel. Next day, there is introduction section with other climbing members & Expedition crews. Since then we arrange for your Tibet visa and other necessary document for Cho Oyu Expedition.

After staying three days at Nepal we drive you towards Nepal-Tibet border up to the Friendship Bridge through Araniko Highway. The Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transportation meet us there and take the expedition gears by truck and the travelers are taken by Land cruiser 4wd or with comfortable Minibus. To make ourselves adjust with the climate and environment, we spent one night at Zhangmu (2300m) and two nights at Nyalam (3750m). Next day we drive to Tingri (4350m) and spend two nights there acclimatizing. Following the jerking and bouncing bumpy way through grassy plain we reach to Chinese base camp and stay two or more nights there as per our member’s interest. We also arrange schedules of the yaks by that time. With our Nepali cook and dining tent base camp is comfortable. After this two-day walk towards the advance base camp (ABC) begins. Mount Cho Oyu, Summit ABC is in the heart of the Himalayas at 5700m; surrounded by celestial peaks. Just a few kilometers west of Cho Oyu is the glaciated pass called Nangpa La which serves as the main trading route between the Tibetans and the Khumbu’s Sherpas.

ABC is the main base camp from where the exotic view of Mount Cho Oyu is easily visible. We plan to stay there for the longer duration waiting for the favorable situation for the expedition. Every person is provided by his or her own tent. We serve entirely up to ABC and the climbers should manage themselves after that. Difficult mountaineering route over moraine- covered glacier begins from ABC where Camp 1 is situated on some ridge at 6400m. After that the ridge is soft and easy enough for climbing, then it broadens out and you should climb successive huge steps, several of which probably require rope fixing. You should fix a new rope together with other members on the mountain. Normally ascending and descending require one-one rope.

Mount Cho Oyu Panorama from Summit Camp 2 is on the edge of a large plateau at 7125m where rope can be assess easily if you are fit enough you may attempt the summit from here, or you may establish a light Camp 3 across the plateau and up on a minor ridge at 7550m. Above Camp 3, there are two rocky steps where rope should be fixing prior to our summit ascent. Finally, from Camp 3 starting in the early morning climbing for summit. , the slopes are still steep and you may take a line to fix there, depending on conditions, however once on the crest of this ridge the terrain is straightforward along a long haul to the summit plateau. Exclusive panorama including Mount Everest 8848m, mount Lhotse 8501m, mount Nuptse 7855m, mount Chamlang 7319m, mount Ama Dablam 6856m and other peaks of the Everest region to the east and south are clearly seen from here. To the west, there are the mount Melungtse and mount Gauri Sankar massifs and the Tibet area is to the north. We can normally descend down to Camp 2 from summit and continue down to the ABC.
