Mount Cho Oyu: guided Tibetan expedition

Get the chance to reach the summit of Cho Oyu, one the easiest 8000m peak in the Himalaya range through the north route in Tibet. Be guided by Phurba, one of the very few IFMGA mountain guides from Nepal.


42 Days

Aug - Oct


By joining this 42-day guided expedition in Tibet, you’ll have the chance to experience a wonderful adventure in some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. Our climbing route to reach the summit of Mount Cho Oyu, will be its Northwestern ridge.

Mount Cho Oyu is 8.201 meters high. It is the 6th highest mountain of the world. Moreover, the peak is located at the border of Nepal and Tibet, in the heart of the Greater Himalaya mountain range.

The northwest ridge is the classic climbing route and it’s very accessible. Of course it has difficult sections but if it is compared with other 8.000-meter summits, it’s really easier.

Despite of its height, Mount Cho Oyu is perfect for climbers who want to improve their mountaineering skills. It is also a great option to get prepared for a bigger objective in the future: Mount Everest for example.

Mountain Guide

I'm a certified NNMGA / UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guide from Nepal. I found my passion for the outdoors and climbing early in life when I was first contracted as a trekking guide for a Japanese team to Yala peak (5520m). Since then I have worked with many adventure tourism agencies and successfully summited Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Baruntse and many other peaks in Nepal. I'm fluent in German and English which allowed me to guide in the Alps several times. I have a right temperament, I'm dedicated and I have a friendly approach to lead and help the climbing teams accomplish their goals.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
