Tibetan folklore has an interesting tale regarding Cho Oyu, the Turquoise God. Legend has it that he fell in love with the Goddess Chomolungma (Everest), who later married her closer neighbour to the southeast, Makalu. As a result, Cho Oyu never wed and he now faces in opposite direction to avoid looking at Chomolungma.

The Cho Oyu expedition starts in Kathmandu, Nepal. Paperwork and equipment management for journeying into Tibet will be done by our Nepal office. You will along the way get a closer look at the local customs and culture of Kathmandu before flying to Lhasa. From Lhasa, we will drive to the village of Tingri and then trek on to the Cho Oyu base camp. You will have to spend two nights herein to hire the yaks so as to transport the expedition supplies and equipment to ABC. Next is a two-day journey during which you will ford rivers and hike over rocky moraines before arriving at ABC, “home camp”.
