Mount Cho Oyu (8201m) is the sixth highest peak of the world climbed by Austrians for the first time in 1954 followed by Indian and German team in 1958 and 1964 respectively. After that many expedition teams have successfully reached on its summit. Tibet side easy climbing route is the most preferred route to reach this peak. Our Company Monterosa Treks and Expedition has been conducting expedition to this summit and other including, Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, Lhakpa Tri etc since 1998.
Meeting and climbing information: As soon as you land on Nepal, our staffs welcome you at Airport and transfer you to hotel. Next day, we make introduction section with other climbing members & Expedition crews. Since then we make your Tibet visa and other necessary document for Cho Oyu Expedition. After 3 day, we drive you towards Nepal-Tibet border up to the Friendship Bridge through Arnico Highway. Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transportation meet us there and take our expedition gears by truck while members are taken by Land cruiser 4wd or by comfortable Minibus. Refreshing at Zhangmu (2300m) for one night and Nyalam (3750m) for two nights, next day we drive you to Tingri (4350m) and spend our two nights there acclimatizing. Then we drive to Base camp 5000m along the rough way with jerking & bouncing experience through grassy plain which leads up to the Everest base camp also called Chinese base camp where we set up our camp and stay two nights or more, which depends on the feeling of our members. We also make schedules of the yaks by that time. Base camp is temporary but comfortable with our Nepali cook and dining tent. Now, the two-day trek towards the advance base camp (ABC) begins. Just few kilometers west of Cho Oyu is the high pass called Nangpa La nearby which, an old but still used yak track trading route between Nepal and Tibet exists.
ABC is the main base camp and we plan to stay there for the longer duration to find favorable situation for the Cho Oyu expedition. Every person gets his or her own tent. Our Service will be full board up to ABC and after that the climbers should manage all services in their own. From ABC it is several hours difficult trek on a vague path over moraine-covered glacier to the start of the mountaineering properly. Camp 1 is either situated on some ridge at 6400m and the real mountaineering begins from here. After this the ridge is soft and easy enough for climbing, then it broadens out and you should climb successive huge steps, several of which probably require rope fixing up there. You should fix a new rope co-operating with other members on the mountain. Normally one rope is used for ascent and one for descent.
On the edge of a large plateau at 7125 is Mount Cho Oyu Panorama from Summit Camp 2 where you can assess to put the rope. If you think you can, you may attempt the summit from here, or you may establish a light Camp 3 across the plateau and up on a minor ridge at 7550m. Above Camp 3, there are two rocky steps where you should fix another set of ropes prior to our summit ascent. Finally, you will begin early in the morning from camp 3 for summit. Above the rock bands, the slopes are still steep and you may take a line to fix there, depending on conditions. If once you are on the crest of this ridge, the terrain is straightforward along a long haul to the summit plateau.
Views of magnificent mountains including Mount Everest 8848m, mount Lhotse 8501m, mount Nuptse 7855m, mount Chamlang 7319m, mount Ama Dablam 6856m and other peaks of the Everest region to the east and south is breathtakingly beautiful. To the Mount Melungtse and Mount Gauri Sankhar is to the west, and entire Tibet area is to the north. It is normal to descend to Camp 2 from summit and to continue down to the ABC. In Tibetan language the meaning of this mountain is Turquoise Goddess. Another derivation of the name to this is called it as the bald god.
