Cho Oyu was first climbed by S. Moechler, H. Tichy & P. Dawa Lama in 1954. It stands high above the Tibetan plains on the Nepal/Tibet border and is ideal choice for mountaineers ready to test themselves on the eight thousand peaks. It is the world's sixth highest mountain and revered by locals as a holy mountain.
It is widely regarded as the least difficult of the fourteen 8000 m peaks following the tradtional route from the Tibetan side. On a good day the view from the summit plateau is breathtaking, in a sweep you take in the entire panorama of Everest, Lhoste, Ama Dablam Nuptse, Chamlang, and other peaks of the Khumbu as well in Tibet.
