About Cho Oyu: Cho Oyu (8201m) is the world's sixth highest mountain. In some ways Cho Oyu has become the Himalayan equivalent of Mt. McKinley (Denali), with people from all over the world trying each year to reach the top, most via the normal route from Tibet. It is not unusual for more than a dozen teams to mount expeditions in both the autumn and spring seasons each year.

Cho Oyu Base Camp

Although not too technically difficult by the normal route from Tibet, Cho Oyu is a very serious undertaking. Each year climbers will die attempting to reach its summit, reminding us that at extreme altitude, any problem rapidly becomes life threatening.

Each climbing season generally poses realistic opportunities to reach the summit. The Spring season typically starts with cold and windy conditions, but less snow, with weather often improving in May. The Autumn season generally begins with good weather and more snow cover (left over from the monsoon.) As the season progresses, the days get shorter and colder. In both seasons, the trick is to time summit bids to coincide with the "weather windows" that usually (but not always!) occur in May or late September/early October.
