Cho Oyu is the sixth highest peak of the world (8201m/26906ft). Cho Oyu in Tibetan is “Turquoise God’ which means the turquoise color of the peak in the afternoon sun from the Tibet side of the mountain. But in Nepal it is known as Qowowuyag by the Sherpas.

 The mountain lies in the Himalayas and is 20 km west of Mount Everest, at the border between China and Nepal. Though the expedition attempt was made by Eric Shipton in 1952, an Austrian Herbert Tichy made the first successful ascent of Cho Oyu in 1954 with fellow Austrians Sepp Jochler and Helmut Heuberger.
