The sixth highest mountain in the world is Cho Oyu (8201m/26907ft).  Cho Oyu Expedition is an archetypal Himalayan climb and considered the easiest 8000m/26248ft peak to climb via its Northwest Ridge, with no technical climbing, much snow with big adventure caring less Denger. The expedition provides a perfect entrance into the world of high-altitude Himalayan climbing. Mt. Cho Oyu is easily accessed by 4-wheel-drive vehicle from Tingri. Cho Oyu is located 30km west of Mt Everest and straddles the border between Tibet and Nepal. This peak offers climbers views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and figuratively hundreds of other Himalayan peaks.

The mountain Cho Oyu is climbable during both spring and autumn seasons. The peak can be climbed from both Nepalese sides up on the south face and north-east ridge routes and Tibetan side along the Northwest ridge route. North approach is an easier and a typical route, which was also the route of the first summit. The mountain Cho Oyu is climbable during both spring and autumn seasons. The Cho Oyu climbing expedition exposes climbers to the ancient culture of Tibet.
