Trip Introduction

Cho Oyu (8188m) is the sixth highest mountain in the world, located at a short distance to the west from Everest in the Khumbu region of Eastern Nepal along the Tibetan border.

There are no really technical sections and the objective dangers are close to non-existent. Its relatively easy access makes it an attractive climb for someone with limited time, as it can be attempted in roughly 6 weeks round trip. Base Camp is accessible by jeep and it is possible to reach Kathmandu on a very long day from Base Camp.
Because of its ease of access, ABC is often crowded with a large number of expeditions. Just west of Cho Oyu is the Nangpa La, the old trade route between the Khumbu Sherpas and Tibet.

It was the third such peak climbed, and the first climbed by light expedition and in Autumn. The mountain was first climbed on October 19, 1954, via the north-west ridge by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition. Cho Oyu is sixth 8000 meters peak to be climbed, after Annapurna in June 1950, Mount Everest, Nanga Parbat, and K2.
