Description

At 8,188 meters, Cho Oyu, which means Turquoise Goddess in Tibetan, is the sixth highest mountain in the world. That alone makes climbing it a once-in-a-lifetime event. Of the 8000 meter peaks, Cho Oyu is also considered to be the easiest to climb. However, it is still a challenge climbing this mountain. But I intend to guide you safely to its magnificent summit, where you will get to enjoy the kinds of views most people can only dream of.

The expedition to the top of Cho Oyu will take approximately 6 weeks. The trip will begin and end in Kathmandu, but in between that time, there is no set schedule. Instead, I prefer to create a schedule based on several criteria that we can discuss. That criteria includes how long you plan to stay in Nepal, what kind of trip you want to experience, and how much you want to see and explore.

When it comes to climbing experiences and the scenery you can witness, you can’t do much better than Cho Oyu. And with the mountain being only 20 kilometres from Mount Everest (8,848m) and other famous Himalayan peaks, you will be in awe for every day of the approximate 6 week journey.

Climbing Cho Oyu, like any of the great mountains in Nepal, is a magical thrill. It is something that you can reflect on for the rest of your life. And because of that impact, I want to tailor the trip so it not reaches, but surpasses your expectations. So please send me a message, so we discuss how to make this trip perfect for you.

And if you are interested in climbing other beautiful peaks in Nepal, I also offer expeditions to the summits of Mount Lhakpa Ri and the Mera Peak.
