Cho Oyu Expedition Overview
Cho Oyu Expedition Peak is almost every mountaineer’s favorite, especially of the ones’ who want to ascend one of 8000 meter high peaks at any cost. Despite being world’s sixth highest mountain, it’s one of the easiest peaks to climb among its fellow 8000 high Himalayan Mountains.
The peaks climb is direct and relatively short with few small technical sections which can be climbed successfully using fixed lines. However, before setting you up for a Cho Oyu expedition, it’s important for us to gain a full understanding of your body’s response to altitude and help you gain experience with Himalayan conditions.
While we try our level best to follow through the itinerary, the adventure travel in the remote mountain region is unpredictable and involves high risk. Therefore, our expedition leader has power to amend the itinerary if he thinks it’s necessary due to safety concerns.
Please follow through the detailed itinerary and get back to us for any further assistance!
