Cho Oyu is the world’s 6th highest mountain The world has 14 mountains above the height of 8,000m/ 26,246ft. We will also have an expedition to climb Mt. Everest in 2020. We will require that you have climbed the following mountains, some with us before being considered for this expedition to climb Cho Oyu. Aconcagua, Denali, Island peak or Mera Peak and show an excellent level of mountaineering skill. You should have winters skills course in Scotland and Alpine mountaineering skills.
In our opinion you need to climb an 8,000m peak before trying to attempt climbing Everest. Climbing Cho oyu would be a prerequisite for climbing Everest with us. If Cho Oyu is your goal it will not disappoint. Our Climb Cho Oyu 2019 team will have extensive training plans, Vo2 max testing, training hikes and you will know the people you will be climbing with. You will have either climbed with them before or you will have constant access to each other to make sure everyone is accountable to the team and we all go with a team mentally, working together to achieve this goal.
Climbing Cho Oyu is not easy and needs careful consideration, training and conditioning to have a chance to success. We will have an excellent acclimatization schedule in place with additional days to acclimatize correctly, giving you the best possible chance to success. We will only have 8 spaces open on this climb and will not accept people without the required experience. The climb will take 6 weeks and will cost $24,000.
