Cho Oyo is the logical choice for the experienced high altitude climber looking to step into the world of 8000M peak climbing. Climbing your first 8000M peak with Ultimate Ascents makes sense. Our hands on, customized approach to 8000M peaks ensures you have a safe and successful climb.

North West Ridge - After a short (10-14 day acclimating trek) we pack up in Kathmandu, Nepal and head to the Tibetan border. In the border town of Zhangmu we will be met by our Tibetan counterparts who will drive us for the next two days across the vast desert highlands of the Tibetan plateau to our base camp (16,400'). We are able to reach this altitude quickly due to our acclimatization period in Nepal. After establishing base camp we'll be assisted by Yaks as me set up our advanced base camp near the Nangpa La Pass. This historic pass was the means by which the first Tibetan traders crossed the Himalaya to trade in Nepal.
Once ABC (advanced base camp) is set up we'll spend a few days slowly moving making short day trips higher and higher in order to acclimate. When our bodies are ready we'll establish Camp I (19,300ft) at the toe of the west ridge.
Over the next ten days we will establish Camp II (22,400ft) and Camp III (24,900ft). We repeatedly move up and down the mountain to enhance good acclimatization and fitness. Once our last camp is set and we've properly rested at our comfortable base camp we'll begin the push to the top. Over the course of three days we'll move to our highest camp and prepare for our summit attempt.
Our summit attempt will begin between midnight and 1:00 am. From high camp we will move up a snow face of 25-30° to reach the West ridge proper. This gentle ridge leads to the large summit plateau at approximately 26,000'. From here we will spend the next hour traveling across this plateau to reach the true summit and a spectacular 360° view which includes Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and hundreds of other Himalayan peaks. From the summit, the entire Everest massif stands before us, with excellent views of the Western Cwm and the west face of Lhotse. To the north lies the Tibetan plateau (the highest in the world) and to the south stand hundreds of Nepalese peaks.
