The sixth highest mountain in the world is Cho Oyu (8201m).  Cho Oyu Expedition is a classic Himalayan climb and considered the easiest 8000m peak to climb via its Northwest Ridge, with no technical climbing, big snowfields, and little objective danger. Mt. Cho Oyu is easily accessed by 4-wheel-drive vehicle from Tingri, often guided, and is the first 8,000-meter peak for most climbers. Cho Oyu is located 30km west of Mt Everest and straddles the border between Nepal and Tibet. The peak can be climbed from both Nepalese side up on south face and north-east ridge routes and Tibetan side along the Northwest ridge route with North approach being an easier and a standard route, which was also the route of the first summit. The mountain Cho Oyu is climbable during both spring and autumn seasons.

For climbers that want additional support for Cho Oyu Expedition, Snowy Horizon offering a Personal Sherpa Option to you. We will assign exclusively to you one of our very best Sherpas, who has reached to the summit of Cho Oyu and Everest many times. Who has been trained through the Khumbu Sherpa climbing school, and who speaks English well. In Cho Oyu Expedition as a small, two-person team, you will be able to take advantage of the “best of both worlds” with all the “horsepower” of the main Snowy Horizon team at your disposal in case of emergency. However, Snowy Horizon will also have the additional flexibility afforded by a climbing partner who is committed to climb exclusively on your own schedule, when you want to. Your personal Sherpa will also be available to help carry your personal gear to the higher camps, and if desired, additional oxygen for Cho Oyu Expedition.

To complete expedition of Mt. Cho Oyu, we set up the Advanced Base Camp and then three high camps in the mountain. Thereafter starts our main attempt to scale the summit (8201m). The expedition will be supported by very experienced staff and climbing guides. We supply excellent mountaineering tents also for the high camps to our climbers of Mt. Cho Oyu.

Many Mountaineering expedition climbs are not highly technical but operating on high altitude increases level of difficulty and even non-technical aspects at sea level turns into complex, difficult and potentially dangerous or even life threatening at high elevations. Therefore technical abilities or per-expedition training is an essential part to safety and success with essential skills to use climbing equipment such as ropes, ice axes and crampons. Even guided clients must have a minimum knowledge, experience and awareness of basic rock climbing, scrambling steep snow and rock, protection techniques, crevasse rescue and being able to recognize a danger of achievable unfixed snow conditions, avalanche, physiological symptoms of dehydration, altitude sickness, cold and hypothermia and fast challenging weather conditions.

Mountaineering training is a continuous and never ending process; it is a way of life and requires a constant practice, and mountaineering instincts have to become a second nature. A small mistake or lapse of concentration can be deadly. The reward however is breathtaking view and unforgettable feeling of life achievement of standing on the top of the summit. Mountaineering in Alps, Andes, or Canadian Rockies can be technically very challenging but adding another dimension of very high altitude in Himalayas over 8000m or even above 7000m, multiplies the level of technical difficulty even in case of a simple high elevation summit, which wouldn’t  be classified as a difficult hike at low elevations. The mountaineering effort level ranges from introductory feasible for fit athletes with little prior experience to extremely challenging routes requiring the highest levels of mountain climbing skills and technical rock climbing skills.
