The 6th highest mountain in the world. Cho Oyu – the “Turquoise Goddess” in Tibetan – is located at the frontier of Tibet and Nepal. At a height of 8201 meters, it belongs to the Himalayan range, about 30 km west of Everest.
Since 1995 we have seen 262 climbers reach the summit of Cho Oyu.
Near the mountain peak is a path called Nangpa La, which is used for trading between the people who live in the mountains.
Some people think that Cho Oyu is the easiest mountain to climb.
The mountain was first climbed by Herbert Tichy, Joseph Jöchler and Pasang Dawa Lama.
