Choo Oyu Climbing (8201m.)

Choo Oyu Climbing

Situated north east of Nepal and south of Tibet, Cho Oyu peak is the most popular above 8000 meter peak for climbing in Tibet. Mountaineers who want to achieve the goal of standing on 8000m. Peak, Cho Oyu would be the best choice for the due to its straight forward climbing with minimal objective danger. Cho Oyu climbing has the higher rate of success than any other 8000 meter peak climbing in Nepal & Tibet.

From base camp, we begin our trek to the advance base camp at 5,700m. We climb through steep moraines to a shoulder at 6,400m where cam I is set up. From here we climb up through the ridge and fixed rope to climb a 50m high serac barrier split by a ramp to set up the camp II at about 7,100m on an easy snow slope. The climbing becomes easier, we climb more gentle snow slopes and we place our camp III at 7,500m on the North West Face. The summit day consists of climbing on the intermediate snow slopes crossing though rock bands to the summit ridge and then ultimately to the flat snow, the summit.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
