Cho Oyu Expedition from Tibet first attempted by the Austrian team of mountaineers via Tibet route in 1954, has only been gaining popularity since recently. Cho Oyu (8201 meters), the sixth highest mountain in the world is one of the easiest to climb among the other 8,000 meter high mountains. The south face of Cho Oyu, facing Nepal is steep and challenging, hence it’s rarely attempted. While, the north side of the mountain from Tibet side is relatively moderate, and has a safe route to the mountain as well. As a result, most of the Cho Oyu expedition is made via Tibet side due to the easier access and technique as discussed earlier.
We at Skyline are fully organized to make available any logical support for any sort of expeditions. Cho Oyu expedition allows you to sharpen your skills to climb and stay healthy at extreme altitude by learning about techniques to climb with an oxygen system. While you decide to choose us as your companion for any expedition in the Himalayas, we will make sure to keep your health and security as our foremost priority. We also do other great Himalayan treks, that don’t even require technical climbing skills. To learn more about them, please make sure to follow through the ‘trekking’ section of website.
