Introduction

Cho Oyu Expeditions is the most popular 8000 meters peak to climb. It is the world's sixth highest mountain, stands astride the Nepal Tibet border, just 70 kilometers west of Everest. Climbing Expedition on Cho Oyu from Tibet side is regarded as one of the most straightforward to climb that has the highest rate of success than any other 8000 meters mountains. The normal route ascends the northwest face from the Tibetan side of the Nangpa La, the old trading route to Nepal.

Despite the relatively non-technical nature of Cho-you climb you must have some mountaineering experience and must have been to 6000m before like Island, Lobuche, Mera, Chulu peaks. Expedition members should be able to ascend and descend fixed lines independently and be proficient with cramponing on steep ice or snow slopes. For an increased chance of success, members should also be in good physical condition. Ascent Himalayas Treks main goal is to help you summit Cho you safely with the greatest amount of personal fulfillment and fun. In order to achieve your goal, you need strong & experienced staff supports on Cho Oyu expedition.

The proposed itinerary allows enough time for proper acclimatization, rest days, and several returns to base camp, where the kitchen and base camp staff can look after all of your needs, and quell your appetite.

After preparation in Kathmandu for the expedition, we drive to Nepal-Tibet border; where the Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transportation meet us there for the drive to Zhangmu (2350m) and Nyalam (3750m), which also gives us the chance to trek up high hills for acclimatization. Next day we drive to Tingri (4350m) where we spend further two nights acclimatizing. Then we drive Tingri to Base camp along the rough way with jerking & bouncing experience through grassy plain that leads up to the Chinese base camp.
