Tibet – Mt. Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth highest mountain at 8,201m, is located west of Mt. Everest along the Nepali-Tibetan border. A straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak with out taking much risk.

Our itinerary that begin by driving into Tibet through Kordari, crossing the Himalaya through gorges of Bhote Koshi. The drive is simply awesome!! and full of excitement, we’ll arrive on the other side of Himalaya from Kathmandu to Nyalam on first day. We’ll spend our nights in Nyalam relaxing and hiking the hills for acclimatizing. From Nyalam, we begin our overland travel across the plateau and high passes. We’ll continue on to Tingri (4,300m) through fantastic plateau scenery with a stop at  the Buddhist monastery Milrepa built around a sacred cave. Along the last few miles into Tingri, views of Makalu, Everest and Cho Oyu remind us why we’re here. Tingri itself is made up of old-style mud and stone buildings with an army base at its rear. Tibetan nomads use the town as a base during their stay in this desolate part of the plateau.

After arrival at Chinese Base Camp, we’ll rest, acclimatize and make the necessary climb preparations before making our ascent to advanced base camp at 5,700m. We’ll cross through steep moraines to establish Camp 1 at 6,400m, which should take around 4 – 6 hours depending on weather conditions and how we’re feeling. We’ll traverse a ridge and ascend a 50m headwall to Camp 2 at 7,000m – a hard day taking 6 – 7 hours. Our strong Sherpas will fix all ropes as require. We’ll establish Camp 3 at 7,500m on the northwest face, and the following day, set up for the summit. Depending on fitness, we’ll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps.

It will require an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield. Summit day, though long and arduous, will be well worth it when the highest peaks in the world are in view.
