    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.

    If you’re interested in this 42-day guided expedition in Tibet, please find below an estimate program and itinerary of the trip. The suggested departures is from late August till early September, but please ask me for other dates.

    About the 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.
