A Photo Gallery of Mount Cho Oyu ( 8201m )

the sixth highest mountain in the world

and neighbouring Peaks

in the Nepal Himalaya

Cho Oyu was first climbed by Austrians in 1954. It is about 30km west of Everest at the head of the Gokyo Valley. The mountain was reconnoitred during the 1951 Everest Reconnaissance and a British team led by Eric Shipton attempted the peak in 1952. The first ascent was made in 1954 via the north-west ridge using a route through Tibet from the Nangpa La - not strictly a legal route. By 2002 a total of 125 expeditions had been made on Cho Oyo. The approach to the mountain from both Nepal and Tibet is easy, and the ascent through Tibet is not particularly difficult. Of all Nepal's 8000m peaks Cho Oyo is second only to Everest in the number of expeditions and successful ascents. In 2002 the record stood at 710 climbers reaching the summit, 342 expeditions and 25 deaths.
