Join IFMGA certified mountain guide Jyamchang for an incredible 6 week journey to the summit of the Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain on Earth.
Sep, Oct, Nov
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.
Camping during the expedition
Hi! I'm Jyamchang, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.
I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.
I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.
I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.
It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

Beautiful trip and climb to Merapeak. Excellent guide!
I had Jyamchang as a guide for two expeditions, Himlung Himal in 2020 and Everest in 2021. Both were successful and it was great going on the mountain with him. I really appreciated his dedication and continuous care for the clients, together with his pride in maintaining a good level of service and the eagerness to succeed that got us to the summits.
Mr. Jyamchang Bhote was amazing. Very skilled and very patient. Had all the equipment we needed. Great spot for training. Definitely worth the money.
Jyamchang is an excellent guide with western leadership experience but local Sherpa values. He always prioritizes safety and I trust his decision making during critical moments. He’s become a friend over the course of our many climbs together and I highly recommend him and his local company High Himalayan!
I would like to add that the outfit high Himalayan was very professional in handling logistics and also integrating its porters and guide into the trip and making it a group experience.There team went out off there way to make sure everyone made it to there destination in the evening and was save. Great job and will be looking forward to do another trip with them.
Really nice company very good logistic and well organized with a really professional and friendly UIAGM mountain guide. Super thankful to high Himalayan climbing expedition pvt.ltda. for the first successfully alpine climb expedition to Ama Dablam in this autumn 2018, cheers mate!
After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam's steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn's commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.
This company made my trip to Nepal and Himalaya to a great and memorable journey! The guide is professional, friendly and everything was well organized. I went to Himalayan Alpine Mountaineering course who is a great way to experience both trekking and climbing in Himalaya.

I give High Himalayan and Jyamchang my highest recommendation. Jyamchang is everything you want out of a guide -- knowledgable, thoughtful, driven, and careful. He has a genuine love for climbing and works hard to keep costs low for his expeditions and his clients. You cannot go wrong with Jyamchang and his team.
These guides are professional and really friendly. They do their best to make you trip special and memorable. I would trust them to take care of me if something happened. At our hike in the Everest region they managed to solve every small and larger problems that showed up. If I ever go back these are the people I would have with me again.

Professional, competent and friendly guide who always takes great care of the clients. We were a group trekking and climbing during 21 days in the Everest region with the company. We were a group of friends who all knew the guide on beforehand, and knew how good he is at his work. We were very pleased with the experience we had. I can recommend the company for everyone who wants a great experience in the Himalayas.

Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.
As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium
It has now been two weeks since our departure from Kathmandu and we have had time to reminisce about the impressions Himalaya left us with. Everything from the fascinating streets of Kathmandu and the nerve wrecking flight to Lukla to the majestic views every step along the trek to Everest Base Camp and the Kalla Pathar height, are experiences we never will forget. Mid-February gave us the perfect combination of clear skies, not too cold weather and the least amount of tourists. We would recommend this period to all who have the same preferences. However, we are both confident that the experience would not have been the same without our guide Jyamchang from Highhimalayan. Jyamchang proved to have enough experience to always make the correct choices, both in respect of routes as well as accommodation. In addition, he gladly shared his thorough knowledge about the Himalayas and Nepalese history, which made the trek most educative. Safety was always in focus. For instance, throughout the journey we had the pleasure of daily summaries and check-ups on how we coped with the altitude, which even left us with enough knowledge to plan our next high altitude trek on our own. We also noted that we were the only trekkers with this kind of luxury and that the other guides seemed to use Jyamchang as the go-to guide for any and all types of questions. With his extremely positive attitude and big smile, it was like a dream being met each morning with a warm cup of “wake-up” tea! Thi!? In short, we are left with a truly magnificent experience and would like to thank Jyamchang for his contribution in making it so. We give Jyamchang our very best recommendations.
Jyamchang is very experienced. He travels safe and is a wonderful person to be around.
