Cho Oyu Expedtion

Mount Cho Oyu was first climbed by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jochler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition group

Overview

Mount Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world that stretches 8,201m/26,906ft above the sea level. This mountain is among the ones that are considered the treasure of the country. The name of the mountain is derived from the Tibetan language which means “Turquoise Goddess”. This mountain is the westernmost major peak of the Khumbu region that lies 20km west of Mount Everest. This peak lies on the border of Nepal and Tibet.

To the west of Mount Cho Oyu , a few kilometres away lay Nangpa La [5,716m/18,753ft]. It is a high pass made of frozen glaciers that provide trading route to the Tibetans and Sherpa villages. This pass, also separates Khumbu from the Rolwaling Mountain. The moderate ranges of steepness and altitudes make Mt Cho Oyu the easiest peak to conquer.

Mount Cho Oyu was first climbed by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jochler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition group through the North-western ridge on 19th of October, 1954. Earlier in 1952, Joint Himalaya Committee organized an attempt to this mountain but did not succeed.

Mount Cho Oyu has still maintained its personality since the first epic journey. Expedition here lists among the challenging and breathtaking adventure among the activities in Nepal Tourism Board.

FAQs

What kind of insurance do I need?

We invest in insurance coverage for commercial liability and medical and disability insurance for our guides and Sherpas while participating on our programs. We cannot insure you for your personal needs, but we do expect you to be as fiscally responsible as we are. We strongly recommend that you insure yourself against potentially expensive difficulties that may arise. First, trip cancellation insurance may provide financial relief should you be forced to withdraw from the climb before it even happens. Next, make sure you have adequate traveler's medical and evacuation insurance for coverage should you have a problem during the trip. Medical care and evacuation from Everest can be expensive.

What else do I need to pay for?

You may spend some additional money on the trek buying drinks and snacks (food is provided for you). If you go down to Pheriche for rest and relaxation, you will need some additional money for this (estimate $35 per day).

What if I want to leave early?

No problem, we will organize you a porter and you can hike back to Lukla. The porter will carry your duffel bags. We will provide you a stipend to cover your lodges and meals on the hike out. Our staff at Lukla will meet you, arrange tickets, and assist you to make the flight to Kathmandu.

How do my duffel bags get back to Kathmandu?

We will hire porters to carry your duffels back to Lukla, where they will be flown to Kathmandu.

How much personal gear of mine will the Sherpas carry to C1, C2, C3, C4?

The Sherpas will carry a reasonable amount of your personal gear for you up to the camps. For example — your sleeping bag, down suit, extra high altitude gear, some food and snacks, etc. You should not have to carry a big load at any time on the trip — we want you to be able to move at a reasonable speed. You will need to carry with you the things you require during the day-clothes, snacks, water, camera, etc.

Why do I need a second sleeping bag?

We have a limited number of "extra" shared bags available for upper camps, but most climbers will appreciate having a dedicated bag at Base Camp and then another bag that is used above the Icefall. We don't want to carry bags up and down the Icefall.

What if I want to order more oxygen?

Additional oxygen is available delivered to the South Col at $1500 per cylinder (1800 liters). Most climbers do not require extra oxygen, we provide a generous supply (climb at 3 liters/minute above C3, sleep at 1 liter/min at Col).

How does a helicopter rescue work from Base Camp?

We can call for rescue with the B3 helicopter from Fishtail Helicopter. The cost is $10,000. This is the only helicopter that is able to safely land at Base Camp.

What do I do with my passport and plane ticket while I am climbing?

We suggest that you leave these items with our staff in Kathmandu, so it is easy for them to change your tickets or extend your visa for you while you are climbing.
