Mount Cho Oyu is the 6th tallest mountain on the planet. It’s only the mountain over an altitude of 8000, which has such a high success rate and is situated between Nepal and Tibet but requires a permit to climb this beautiful peak known commonly as the Goddess of Turquoise. Many rise to this beautiful peak due to its easy climb and low fatality rate. The best route adoption the Northern route via the North West Face for the Cho Oyu Expedition Tibet face, an altitude of 8201 m, and the climb up to the Cho Oyu. It can’t merely be considered demanding; apparently, acclimatization and proper physical condition are mandatory.
The Cho Oyu Expedition Tibet Face commences a flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa. It lies at a height of 3600 meters since it is the base for the acclimatization of the Tibetan plateaus. From here, a drive to Tibet’s largest city, Singatse, and a further drive to Xegar, at an altitude of 4000 m, with its beautiful monasteries. Acclimatization is mandatory here to reduce the effects of altitude sickness.
Furthermore, a drive is up to the Chinese Base Camp, which leads to the Cho Oyu Base Camp. The elevation is 5200 m from sea level as well as acclimatization. The climb is processing which is needed frequently. Then up lays the Advanced Base Camp at 5700 m situated near the Nangpa – La.
The ascent to the 1st Camp is easy and requires simple walking. From 1st Camp (6400 m) to 2nd Camp (7000 m) require ropes for support. This part has a few problematic sections technically. 2nd Camp to 3rd Camp also is relatively easy and requires reaching a height of 7400 meters. Many others 7000 meters peaks are visible while reaching the summit from 3rd Camp via bands and steep snowy slopes. The actual summit will come after crossing the false summit. The exact path retraces down. Cho Oyu expedition Tibet Face is regarded as a practice for the Everest Expedition and is relatively popular among mountaineers.
