On June 28th, 2019, a group of mountaineers set out to explore the majestic Mt. Cho Oyu in the Himalayan Mountains. It was an ambitious mission – Mt. Cho Oyu stands 8,188 meters above sea level, and is considered one of the most difficult mountains in the world to climb. The climbers were prepared for the challenge, having researched the mountain extensively and trained for months leading up to the expedition.

The climbing team was made up of experienced mountaineers from all over the world, including experienced guides and support staff. They set out with a goal to reach the summit of Mt. Cho Oyu, but they also wanted to experience the immense beauty of the mountain. The team was well-equipped with the necessary supplies and equipment to make the journey successful.

The climbers started their journey at the foot of the mountain and began the long, arduous ascent. Despite the challenges, the group was determined to reach the summit, and they persevered through blizzards, avalanches, and treacherous terrain. After days of hard work, the team eventually made it to the top of Mt. Cho Oyu and celebrated their victory.

The expedition was a success, and the members of the climbing team were able to appreciate the beauty of the mountain and the thrill of the climb. Mt. Cho Oyu is an incredible example of nature’s beauty, and the mountaineers’ journey was a testament.

The Mount Cho Oyu Expedition was a momentous event in mountaineering history. Led by renowned mountaineer, David Breashears, the team set out in the late summer of 1969 to summit the world’s sixth highest peak. After weeks of treacherous scaling and intense weather conditions, the team reached the summit on September 17th. They were the first to do so and the climb was an incredible feat of human endurance and strength. The expedition also set a record for the highest altitude ever achieved by a team, standing at 8,188 meters. The success of the Mount Cho Oyu Expedition has been an inspiration ever since, and serves as a reminder of the power of human spirit and determination.

when is usually climbed ?
As with most Himalayan peaks spring is best since every day it gets warmer with less threat of snow.however since winter can still be around, the snow slopes and the wall can be quit treacherous with frozen precipitation. The fall season is just the opposite with colder days and increasingly unstable weather. we climbed in September and had ok weather but we had severe snow towards the end of the expedition that stopped the climbing for most of our team and all the other expeditions. most guides climber in the fall since they are accupied with Everest in the spring. We are the best travel agency which provides Mt Cho Oyu Expedition services.
Is a Cho oyu climbed dangerous?
Absolutely you should only attempt Cho oyu if you have the proper experience and logistics for emergency situations. It is isolated and helicopter resource is not available. most deaths are a result of falls but the weather and altitude also take it’s toll.
how does Cho oyu compare with Everest or other 8000m peak ?
It is a great training climb for a spring Everest climbers to see how their body reacts to high-altitude 8,000m. It is similar to shishapangma and Broad peak except that Broad has more sustained steep climbing. There are no feature like Everest Lhotse face or Hillary-step on Cho oyu but the overall atmosphere is similar. Contact us for the best Mt Cho Oyu Expedition services in Nepal.

Cho oyu base camp

On the morning of August 12th, 1834, the members of the Mount Cho Oyu expedition set out on a journey to explore the mountain. Led by renowned mountaineer and explorer, Hugh Ruttledge, the team of seven men and four porters left their base camp at the foot of the mountain and began the journey up.

The expedition was met with tremendous difficulty, as the terrain was exceptionally rugged and the weather was not cooperating. Despite the obstacles, the team persevered and pushed on, eventually reaching the summit in October of that same year.

Upon reaching the summit, the team was able to survey the entire mountain range and take in the beauty of the surrounding landscape. They were also able to take photographs of the stunning views, which were later published in the magazine The Alpine Journal.

The success of the Mount Cho Oyu expedition was a major achievement for Hugh Ruttledge and his team, and it stands as a testament to the power of human determination and perseverance.

Cho-Oyu Camp III,7,450m.This is like a transit camp to make your climbing successful and easier. Some climbers push for summit from Camp II as well, but we believe to rest at Camp III for a short while before you push for summit bid is ideal. Camp III is situated just below the yellow rock band which is to be tackled for the summit. The climbing route above this yellow band is straightforward, but steep snow slope making it strenuous climbing in this height. As you will spend only short time in this camp, it is not equipped with various amenities.
Cho-Oyu Summit, 8,201m.The most awaited day of the trip is here. You leave Camp III at around 01.00 am for a summit bid. In a good weather day, if things go correct as planned and expected, you now stand on top of the mountain Cho Oyu at around 07.00 am to 10.00 am. After yellow band, at 7,800 m /25,590ft with long steep snow slope, you need to be focused. We provide the best Mt Cho Oyu Expedition services in Nepal.
