Cho-Oyu lies 30 kms west of Mt. Everest on the border of Nepal and Tibet (China). It is en-route through Nangpa La. a high Himalayan pass used by Sherpa for trading with Tibet.
Approach route to the summit is through north-west side of the peak for which climbers need to cross Tibet through Nangpala. This passage through high mountains used to be traditional trade route to Tibet.
Cho-Oyu is the world’s sixth highest mountain. The mountain was first climbed by Hebert Tichy in 1954. The mountain is considered as one of the easiest to climb and comparatively safe, which enables climbers with determination but not necessarily a high degree of technical expertise to reach an 8,000 m summit.
A British expedition led by E. E Shiption in 1952, tried their Everest expedition equipment and oxygen on this mountain. The mountain was first summited in Autumn 1954 by an Austrain team led by H. Tichy. Classic west ridge route from North uses base camp a Nangpa La.
Pointer: Three weeks would be spent on setting base camp: this include walk in and out; Anoher three weeks is planned to prepare high base camp and attempt to go and summit.
