Cho Oyu Summit For almost ten years Friendship World Treks has catered the needs of mountaineers climbing Cho Oyu in a professional and committed manner. Mt. Qowowuyag ( Cho Oyu ) rising 8,201 m above sea level at 86.9* E and 28* N, is situated in the middle section of the Himalayas, with the north side lying in the Tingri County. Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, has only recently become a popular mountain to climb. It is known to be one of the easer of the world's fourteen 8.000 meter mountain. This is because the ascent to the summit is short and direct, with a few small technical sections climbed in safety using fixed ropes. Additionally, the mountain can be easily reached by four-wheel-drive vehicle.
