Cho Oyu is the 6th highest peak in the world (8201 meters) and is part of the Greater Himalaya, where the central Asia plateau meets the Indian subcontinent. Located on the Tibet and Nepal border, you will have a chance to experience the local Tibetan culture.Via the north-west ridge by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition.

 

Cho Oyu Expedition, the world's sixth highest mountain at 8,201 meters, lies on the Nepal/Tibet border. Interested in seeing how you do above 8000 meters. There is no better testing ground, ease of access and ease of route means that you can save your energy for the climbing. The North West Face, now considered the normal route, is fairly straight forward, with only a couple hundred meters requiring fixed rope. Cho Oyu Expedition will start in Kathmandu, Nepal. We will meet at our Nepal office to get our paperwork together, organize our gear, and enjoy the local customs & culture of Kathmandu before flying to Lhasa. We take a spectacular route from Lhasa to the village of Tingri, our final rugged and rural village before Cho Oyu base camp. Adventure Connexion staff spend two nights at base camp before we hire yaks to transport our expedition supplies to ABC. On this two day journey we will cross rivers, and hike over rocky moraine before we arrive at ABC, “our base camp” for 4 weeks.
