Mount Cho Oyu is 8201m. Peak was climbed by Austrian team in 1954 A. D. It is about 30 Kilo meter west of Everest at the head of the Gokyo valley. The first ascent was made via north-west ridge using route through Tibet from the Nagpa – La is not strictly a legal route.
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 8000 meters Peaks, Cho Oyu is the second only to Everest in both the number of Expeditions successful ascents for more than 1600 climbers climbed till to spring 2009.
The mountain was first climbed on October 19, 1954 via the north-west ridge by Herbert Itchy, Joseph Jöchler and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama of an Austrian expedition. Mount Cho Oyu 8201 meters was the fifth 8000 meter peak to be climbed, after Annapurna in June 1950, Mount Everest in May 1953, Nanga Parbat in July 1953 and K2 in July 1954.
Just a few kilometers west of Cho Oyu is from Nangpa La (5,716m/18,753 ft), a
glaciated pass that serves as the main trading route between the Tibetans and the Nepal -Khumbu’s Sherpas. Due to its proximity to this pass and the generally moderate slopes of the northwest ridge route, some climbers consider Mt. Cho Oyu Climbing to
be the easiest 8,000 meters peak to climb.
