The sixth highest mountain in the world Cho-Oyu, meaning “Turquoise Goddess” in the Tibetan language, lies 20 km west of Everest and forms the boundary wall between Nepal and China. The first attempt on this mountain was made by an Expedition led by the Eric Shipton and included mountaineers who one day became very famous Edmund Hillary, George Lowe, Charles Evans and Tom Bourdilon. They only made it up to 6,650m before returning back. It as the Austrians, Herbert Tichy and Joseph Jochler accompanied by Pasang Dawa Lama who made the first successful ascent on 19th October 1954, via the north-west ridge. This was the Golden Decade of mountaineering when most of the eight thousanders were climbed. The successful Expedition on Cho-Oyu had been triggered by a casual remark made by Pasang Dawa to Tichy the previous year, while climbing another peak Next year, Cho-Oyu? it was often the mountaineers themselves who came up with measurements of mountains that decided the height of many of the peaks in the Himalaya.

Thus it was Dyhrenfurth and Shipton who measured Cho-Oyu which led to declaring this peak as the sixth highest in the world. Ang Phuri Sherpa became the first Nepali national to summit Cho-Oyu on 29th April 1987.
