Mount Cho Oyu is the 6th highest mountain in the world located a short distance to the west from Mt. Everest and Lhotse (the 4th highest) in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal along the Tibetan border China. Its towering peak stands with Mt. Everest well above the surrounding mountains. It became a familiar landmark to climbers ascending Everest’s North face. It is just west from Cho Oyo is Nangpa-La, the main trade route between the Nepal Namche Bazar (Khumbu Region) and Tibet. However, Cho Oyu's proximity to the Nangpa La has earned it the distinction among some climbers as being the easiest 8,000 meter a beautiful mountain which attract for the every trekkers and climbers. The First time Cho Oyu scaled by Mr. Maciej Berbeka from Poland on February 12, 1984 via south east ridge. Mount Cho Oyu Expedition, The south side of Cho Oyu from Gokyo start  from Kathmandu, we transfer to the domestic airport at Kathmandu from where you will fly to Lukla, meet our rest of support crews of the expedition and trek to Phakding to the Cho Oyu Base Camp.

Cho Oyu Climbing history:
Cho Oyu was first attempted in 1952 by an expedition organized and financed by the Joint Himalayan Committee of Great Britain as preparation for an attempt on Mount Everest the following year. The expedition was led by Eric Shipton and included Edmund Hillary and Tom Bourdillon. A foray by Hillary and George Lowe was stopped due to technical difficulties and avalanche danger at an ice cliff above 6,650m. (21,820 ft) and a report of Chinese troops a short distance across the border influenced Shipton to retreat from the mountain rather than continue to attempt to summit.

The mountain was first climbed on October 19, 1954, via the north-west ridge by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition. Cho Oyu was the fifth 8000 meter peak to be climbed, after Annapurna in June 1950, Mount Everest in May 1953, Nanga Parbat in July 1953 and K2 in July 1954.
