Cho-Oyu the sixth highest mountain in the world has only recently become a popular mountain to climb. It is known to be one of the easer of the world's fourteen 8,000m mountain. Cho-Oyu sites on both sides of the border of Nepal and Tibet, about 30km. west of Mt. Everest. It is the sixth highest mountain in the world 8,201m. cho-oyu is translated in Tibetan as "the goddess of the turquoise." The south face of Cho-Oyu, facing Nepal, is quite steep and difficult, and is rarely climbed. The north side of the mountain, accessed from Tibet, is more moderate, and there is a relatively safe route to the summit. In the autumn of 1954, an Austrian team made the first ascent via this route. We also include a great treks option for those wanting to experience the beauty and challenge of the Himalaya without requiring any technical climbing skills.
