Cho Oyu Expedition is an expedition in the land of Tibet starting from Nepal. This mountain climbing is an ideal choice for mountaineers ready for eight-thousanders. It is also reported that Cho Oyu is also called ‘Mighty Head’ meaning ‘god’s head’. Cho Oyu is also known as the world’s sixth highest mountain. Australians – S. Moehler, H. Tichy, and P. Dawa Lama from Nepal in 1954 were the first to step onto the snow-dome summit.
While on a Cho Oyu Expedition we can enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains. We will see the entire Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, Ama Dablam, and other peaks of the Khumbu. This massif is the most straightforward, accessible, and safe to climb. These days there are more than four different routes on Cho Oyu.
