Cho-you Expedition is the name Mount Cho-yu is called 'Goddess of Turquoise'. As goddess is 'chomo' in Tibetan language and turquoise is 'yu'. Hence, 'Chomo Yu' has changed into Cho Oyu in course of changing civilization generation after generation. It is also reported that Cho Oyu is also called 'Mighty Head' meaning 'god's head' It stands at high above the Tibetan plains on the boarder of Nepal with its mighty height 8,201 m above the sea level. Mount Cho-Oyu, the world's sixth highest mountain was first to step onto the snow-dome summit were the Australians - S. Moechler, H. Tichy and P. Dawa Lama from Nepal in 1954.
Mt. Cho Oyu 8,201m is the most popular 8000 meter peak for climbing in Nepal & Tibet. Cho Oyu expedition would be the best choice for the mountaineers who want to stand on the summit of 8,000 meter peak due to its straight forward climbing with minimal objective danger and less technically demanding. These days, there are more than four different routes on Cho Oyu with the Tibetan north side offering several worthy possibilities. Climbing on Cho Oyu has the higher rate of success than any other 8000 meter peaks in Nepal & Tibet. The Base Camp is situated at Rongbuk glacier at 5,180m height. The climbing starts from Camp 1 which is placed at an elevation of 7000m.
