the world's 6th highest mountain at 8,201m
- Cho Oyu, the world's sixth highest mountain at 8,201m, is located just west
of Everest and Lhotse along the Nepali-Tibetan border. Cho Oyu is a
straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for
climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak.
Flying from Kathmandu
(1,280m) over the spectacular Himalayan mountain chain, we'll arrive just
outside Lhasa, the heart and soul of Tibetan Buddhism, at almost 3,600m. We'll
spend our first night in Tibet relaxing and acclimatizing to the significant
increase in altitude. While in Lhasa, we'll tour the former winter residence
of the Dalai Lama, the Potala Palace, and his summer residence, Norbulingka
Palace. We'll visit other notable sites such as Jokhang Monastery, barter for
goods at Barkhor Market, and travel just beyond the city limits to watch the
scriptural debates at Sera Monastery.
