With Best Price



Cho Oyu, meaning ‘Turquoise Goddess’ in Tibetan, is situated 20kms west of Mt. Everest, straddling the border between China & Nepal.  Rising to an elevation of 8,201m, Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world.

The mountain was first summited on 19 October, 1954 via the north-west ridge by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jochler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama, members of an Austrian expedition. The Nangpa La, a 19,000-foot glacier pass which lies west of Cho Oyu makes it easier for climbers to approach the mountain. Other than the challenge of the climb itself, an expedition to this mountain offers climbers spectacular views of Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Ama Dablam (6,856m) and other Himalayan peaks.
