International Cho Oyu 8201meter Expedition autumn 2017 from Lhasa

Austrian first climbs mount Cho Oyu in 1954. The Indian and German team also climbed this peak in 1958 and 1964 respectively. Till to date many expedition teams have successfully reached on its summit. The year 2004 was regarded as the Golden jubilee of this Cho Oyu Mountain in the field of expedition. The golden jubilee ceremony was organized by Nepal Mountaineering Association with grand fanfare and jubilantly. There were about 400 climbers from different region of the World during this golden jubilee ceremony and most of them made the summit.

Most of the mount Cho Oyu expedition teams climb from Tibet side due the easy technique-climbing route from there. Since 1998, our company "Monterosa Treks and Expedition" is also conducting the expedition from Tibet side.

KATHMANDU - Lhasa (12:10 P.M. you will be heading to the Kathmandu airport 8 KM far from down town of City. To fly for Lhasa, This must be perhaps the most beautiful flight in the world from Kathmandu to Lhasa crossing above the world highest peak mount Everest and the other charismatic Himalayan rages. After one hour 10 minutes, you can reach Gongar airport in Tibet, from airport to Lhasa city, It is 90km far way. You will go there either by bus or Jeep; and reach in the hotel and to take rest for the acclimatization.

The staff's and members traveled by automobile, and the members traveled by flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa will conjugate here at this Tingri. This is the conjugation point of all the members and the crews, and after that next day all of them should travel to Cho Oyu Base camp.

Camp 1 is either situated more or less on the ridge at 6400m and the real mountaineering starts from here. The ridge is now soft and easy enough for climbing, then it broadens out and you should climb successive huge steps, several of which probably require fixing a rope up there. You should fix a new rope in co-operation with other members on the mountain. Normally one rope is used for ascent and another for descent. Although the route is crevassed but normally these create no problems

Camp 2 is on the edge of a large plateau at 7125m although you can carefully assess where to put the rope. Depending on conditions and fitness you may attempt the summit from here, or you may establish a light Camp 3 across the plateau and up on a minor ridge at 7550m. Above Camp 3, there are two rocky steps where you fix another set of ropes prior to our summit ascent.

Finally, you will start early in the morning from camp 3 for summit. Above the rock bands, the slopes are still steep and you may take a line to fix there, depending on conditions, however once on the crest of this ridge the terrain is straightforward although it is a long haul to the summit plateau. Legend: regarding to the name of this Cho Oyu, the legend says, in Tibetan language, Chomo means the goddess and Yu means the turquoise. So adding these two words, it was called Cho Oyu, also it is called the "Turquoise Goddess" as per the Tibetan dialect. Another derivation of the name is called it as the bald god as well.
