Choyu Expedition is an integral segment of expeditions that are carried out in Nepal. Listed as the 6th tallest peak, Choyu peak is also recognized as the Turquoise Goddess in Tibetan terminology. In 1954, Austrian Expedition succeeded to reach the pinnacle of Mt Choyu. The fascinating truth about Choyu Expedition is mountaineers do not have to carry the oxygen cylinder. This is the reason behind the successful mountaineering of more than 500 mountaineers.
To conquer Choyu Expedition, mountaineers ascend following the Tibetan route as the mountain is vertical on the surface of Nepal. On a clear day, one, from Choyu’s summit, can view incredible sceneries including Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and others.
Choyu Expedition is arguably huge but then it is the peak, which is technically uncomplicated and easy to get to the top without any harm. In addition, mountaineers are blessed with 4 diverse routes. The base camp is positioned at an elevation of 5,180 meter at Rangbuk glacier. Spring and autumn are the perfect seasons to head to Choyu. Although the forty three day Choyu Expedition is an easier expedition in comparison to other expeditions, Alpine Zone Treks focuses on proper ascending training for the safety of each mountaineer.
