September 14,2022: Climbers will attempt to climb Cho Oyu Himal (8,201 meters) from Nepal for the second time. Earlier, different climbers from two teams tried to climb the Cho Oyu mountain for the first time, but they did not succeed.

Earlier, the team of ‘Cho Oyu Winter Nepal Expedition Project’ led by Geljen Sherpa reached the height of 7,900 meters through the base camp of Cho Oyu, while the team of Pioneer Adventure reached the height of 7,770 meters through the base camp and returned after suspending the climb due to bad weather. The climb had to be cancelled as the time for winter climbing was over.

The company’s executive director Nivesh Karki informed that this time again in the fall, a mountaineer team from Pioneer Adventure Treks is going to try to open the way to climb the Cho Oyu . According to him, eight foreign climbers are ready to climb Mount Cho Oyu in autumn.

Similarly, there are 18 people from Nepal including Nepalese climbers, kitchen boys and helpers. Stating that all the preparations for the climb have been completed, Karki said that Nepalese climbers will leave for the base camp in the next two to three days.

He also said that foreign climbers will arrive in Nepal on September 20 and will go to the base camp with permission. Karki said, “Last year, we had to cancel the climb of Cho Oyu due to bad weather and the permit expired.

At that time there was a possibility of climbing, so now we are going to try.

As this mountain was considered very difficult and risky to climb, it was being climbed only from China.

This time leading the team, the world record mountaineers Sanu Sherpa and Mingma Dorchi Sherpa are also going to Cho Oyu. Since China has closed its border since the start of the Corona epidemic, climbers have not been able to climb Cho Oyu from the Chinese side.
