Mt. Cho Oyu

Mount Cho Oyu, whose top spreads the alluring beauty of its smile from the elevation of 8201 metres,  the sixth highest mountain in the world and the fifth highest in Nepal, lies in Solukhumbu district, province 1, Nepal. It is situated about thirty kilometers northwest from the Everest, 8848 metres, the roof of the world,at the borderline of Nepal and China. There is a glacier saddle called “Nangpa La” 19050 feet high, dwelling south of the Cho Oyu peak, forming a route for the traders of Tibet and Khumbu to walk along.  The first successful attempt to climb up the top of Cho Oyu was made by an Austrian expedition in the year 1954 on October 19.  This very party included Herbert Tichy, Sepp Jochler and a Nepali from Sherpa family, Pasang Dawa Lama.

Since the terrain of Mount Cho Oyu is comparatively less complicated than that of the other eight thousanders, it is described as an easier mountain from climbing perspectives. Those who have a cherished desire and resolution to climb Mount Everest want to gain the experience of high altitude climb via Mount Cho Oyu prior to climbing the Everest. March to May and September to December are the best time for your trip.
