Cho Oyu Expedition
Cho Oyu Expedition     - Cho Oyu Expedition 2015 spring
Nepal Side Cho-Oyu Expedition Spring 2011
Cho Oyu is the world's sixth highest mountain at 8201 m (26,901 feet), and lies 28 km west of Mt. Everest on the Tibetan plateau. The peak itself straddles the Nepal Tibet border, and the peak can be approached on its south side from the Thame valley of the Khumbu region of Nepal leading up to the Lungsampa Glacier. Cho Oyu has three main ridges: the Northwest, the Northeast, and the Southwest.

Cho Oyu's impressive Southwest face, that rises up three kilometers high from the Lungsampa Glacier, drew the attention of the first expedition to the Everest Himal organized by the British in 1921. Three decades would pass before it was first attempted, in 1952, by an expedition led by Eric Shipton. They were turned back at 6650 m (22,500') by the ice cliff on the Northwest ridge that proved to be beyond their technical limits. (AAJ 27 1953, p.581). Cho Oyu was successfully climbed two years later in the post-monsoon season of 1954 via the Northwest ridge by Austrians Herbert Tichy , Sepp Johler and Sherpa Passang Dawa Lama, who led the ice cliff that Shipton had described as obviously impassible. (AAJ 29 1955, p. 178) . That same year, Cho Oyu was attempted by a French expedition that included Mme. Claude Kogan, and although they were turned back at 7600 m (25,000'), her altitude record for women lasted many years. From the north, the peak is approached from the Tingri Plain, to the Palung Glacier that lies below the peak's north face, and the Gyabrag Glacier that surrounds the Northwest face.
