Cho Oyu Expedition Brief Insight

Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world with a height of 8,188m above the sea level. Cho Oyu Expedition is one of the most popular trekking in the world. The Chooyu is situated in the 20kms west from the Everest.

Peak climbing of the Cho Oyu from Tibet side is regarded as one of the most straightforward to climb that has the highest rate of success than any other 800 meters mountain. The normal route for this expedition ascends the northwest face from the Tibetan side of the Nangpa La, the old trading route to Nepal.

SEE: Lobuche Peak Climbing

Despite the fact that Cho Oyu climbing is non-technical, it is necessary to have some mountaineering experience and training and must be to 6,000m before like Island peak, Mera peak, Chula peak, and Mardi Himal. Climbers must know to ascend and descend fixed lines independently and be proficient with crampons on the steep snowy mountain. For an increased chance of completion of the peak, climbing members should be in good physical condition.

With the challenge of high-altitude climbing shouldn’t be underestimated, the technical nature of the Cho Oyu peak climbing is moderate. The route to the peak of Cho Oyu is covered with snow slopes with a short section of ice and rock scrambling.

We will use some of the fixed ropes for speed and safety. The team of the Mount Face Nepal is so experienced that you won’t face any difficulties in the peak climbing time. We will climb this expedition in a classic Himalayan expedition style. You will get experienced Sherpa’s who assist you in load carrying and camp preparation.

The assistance if expert Sherpa greatly increases the chances of being a success. We will have to move up and down the mountain to fix the rope and establishing camps and acclimating to the extreme altitude.

Supplemental oxygen has to be carried with us as there won’t be sufficient oxygen in the mountain area. Along with oxygen climber have to be prepared with strong hygienic food with many calories. The lifestyle you are living within your place is not available during the this peak climbing. You have to be prepared for the worst condition of weather and climate change.

The typical Sherpa village on our way to the peak is awesome. The food available in the mountain region will change your taste and the food will be delicious. The forest with rhododendron, pine trees, and bamboo are awesome.

We can see the beautiful valley and the snow-covered mountain from this expedition. Everest is the main attraction of this trekking. Forest with hilly animals and the mountain desert in the region is just awesome.
