Cho Oyu

Cho Oyu, situated on the border of Tibet and Nepal, is a good training peak for mountaineers willing to challenge themselves at the milestone altitude of 8,000m. The adventure of Cho Oyu "The Turquoise Goddess" is not a well-known tale. The mountain's first ascent was achieved by Herbert Tichy and Sepp Jochler, two quiet, reserved Austrians and their good Sherpa friend Pasang Dawa Lama in 1954.

Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain on the planet and rises to an impressive 8,201 metres above sea level. As the crow flies, it is only 20km from Mt. Everest and it straddles the Tibet / Nepal border. Cho Oyu is the most attainable of the world's highest mountains and is an impressive first foray into the world of high Himalayan climbing as well as an essential climbing stone for climbing Mt Everest.

The comparative ease of access, lack of objective dangers and generally uncomplicated terrain contribute to its high success rate.
