Final Chance to join our Autumn and Winter expeditions NEW DATES ADDED
We hope you are well and have had a good year so far.
I am writing to you from Cho Oyu advanced basecamp at 5650 metres / 18,500 feet. Our expedition of men and women of all ages is climbing Mount Cho Oyu, The 6th highest mountain in the world and located beside Mount Everest. Our Cho Oyu team are currently resting in basecamp momentarily before trying for the summit. Exciting stuff!
Thanks for following us at www.ChoOyuNews.com
We have already had an exciting year so far. Our Cho Oyu and Everest Tibet Climb teams ALL summited successfully this spring. We are so proud of everyone involved, well done to our team members: men and women of all ages, and thanks to our excellent leaders and top Sherpas. Plus earlier this year our Nepal and Tibet Training Climbs and Basecamp Trek teams achieved their goals.
