CHO OYU EXPEDITION

TIBET - APRIL TO MAY

Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world at 8201 m. above sea level. Cho Oyu lies in the Himalayas and is 20 km west of Mount Everest, at the border between Tibet and Nepal. Cho Oyu means "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan.

Cho Oyu was first attempted in 1952 by an expedition organized and financed by the Joint Himalayan Committee of Great Britain as preparation for an attempt on Mount Everest the following year. The expedition was led by Eric Shipton and included Tom Bourdillon, but technical difficulties at an ice cliff above 6,650 m proved beyond their abilities.

Just a few kilometers west of Cho Oyu is Nangpa La (5,716m), a glaciated pass that serves as the main trading route between the Tibetans and the Khumbu's Sherpas. Due to its proximity to this pass and the generally moderate slopes of the standard northwest ridge route, some climbers consider Cho Oyu to be the easiest 8,000 meter peak, to climb and it is a popular objective for professionally guided parties.
