Home Expedition / Tibet - Cho-Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu Expedition Tibet.

The mountaineers who wish to climb 8000m peak, Cho Oyu will be their best choice since the mountain is straight forward to climb with minimal objective danger and less technically demanding. Cho Oyu has higher rate of success than other 8000m peaks simply because of the easy access to the base camp and short and all fixed technical sections during the climbing. Normally, three camps are set in the approach. From base camp, we trek to the advance base camp at 5,700m. We climb through steep moraines to a shoulder at 6,400m where camp I is set up. From here we climb up through the ridge and fix rope to climb a 50m high serac barrier split by a ramp to set up the camp II at about 7,000m. The climbing becomes easier and place our camp III at 7,500m on the north west face. The summit is a long way at the far end with huge snow fields.
