Cho Oyu Expedition

Standing 20 km. to the west of Mount Everest on the Nepal-Tibet border, Cho Oyu is a true Himalayan giant. At 8,201 m. it is the 6th highest peak in the world and an excellent objective, be it for your once-in-a-lifetime 8,000 m peak, or as your final preparation before attempting Mount Everest. We tackle the mountain via the NW ridge, which is the original route used by the Austrian team who were the first to climb the mountain in 1952. Access to the mountain is notoriously easy, as we drive from Kathmandu, cross the Himalaya and after some acclimatization stops and day hikes, arrive at Chinese Base Camp. A two day trek brings us to Advance Base Camp, from where we tackle the mountain via the placement of three camps. The climbing on the mountain is relatively straight-forward, with the two cruxes being a short but steep ice-cliff between Camps 1 and 2, and a prolonged, steep rock band directly above Camp 3.Given the extreme altitude, the mountain is a very serious objective and neither the climb nor your preparation for the climb should be taken lightly. You’ll need to be as fit as you can possibly be, and when you’re climbing through the rock band above Camp 3 on your summit push, you’ll understand why! Once we reach the cusp of the summit plateau in the early hours of the morning, you’ll have to summon the energy to cross the wide plateau at over 8,100m. before finally standing on the main summit. If the weather is clear, once you are on the summit the spectacular panorama will make it all worth it. From the top you’ll be able to see Shishapangma, Gyachung Kang, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and of course, mount Everest!

Accommodation Details

In recent years with the help of Government as well non-Government agencies many of these lodge owners have gone through training programs aimed at raising the quality of services as well as instilling environmental awareness. For example in the Annapurna Sanctuary and adjacent areas it is now regulation for all lodge owners to use alternative fuel (fuel other than fire wood- kerosene, gas, electric or even solar) for cooking and heating, dispose of garbage properly and adopt other eco-friendly measures. Most lodges have all the basic requirements for trekkers to stay overnight – a nice common clean, several private rooms, an attached restaurant, toilet and a shower room. The quality of food offered might vary from lodge to lodge but most serve simple and hygienic meals Peak Himalayan success treks etc. has found it very attractive for trekkers to use these lodges on the routes instead of operating camping style treks. One of the main reason being that along these popular routes almost every house offers bed and meals and many camping trekkers find it incongruous to camp near a lodge and not be able to experience the warmth and hospitality of the friendly Nepali hosts. The other important reason being that this helps the local economies directly by using the facilities along the trail. To make sure that our guests do not get disappointed we stay in a comfortable and interesting lodge in each place. With larger groups we reserve all the beds in a lodge thus making sure that we have the place to ourselves. Quite often our lodge trekkers are overwhelmed- by the homey atmosphere and the grace of our hosts and many have made great friends with our friends for many years. If you have an urge to trek in some of the most beautiful places in Nepal, interact and make friends with the local people without having to sleep in a cold and lonely tent, Lodge Trekking is just the thing for you.


We get paradise of food offered in city areas. In cities, we get lots of restaurant with different cuisine but during the trek, we get something different. During the trek, we can get local cuisine along with some continental and Nepali menu especially (pasta, mo: mo, pizza, coffee, potatoes items, fruits etc).
