Our friends at Summit Climb are prepping for an expedition to climb Cho Oyo.
Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world at 8,201 metres above sea
level. Cho Oyu means "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan. The mountain stands on
the Tibet-Nepal border, about 20 km from Mt. Everest.
At 8201 metres/26,906 feet, Cho Oyo has only
recently become a popular mountain to climb. It is now known to be one of the
most accessible of the world’s fourteen 8,000 metre/26,500 foot mountains.
This is because the ascent to the summit plateau is short and direct, with a
few small technical sections,
