Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu or meeting point at the hotel in Kathmandu. Everyone will be picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel, whether the arrival was individual or with the group. And then everything begins in a very comfortable way… check in, get to know each other, have a beer on the terrace and enjoy the upcoming excitement.
Day 2: Free time in Kathmandu. Who does not know it yet, will love it. Relaxing, shopping in Thamel, cultural programme or simply soaking up the flair. Everyone as he wants.
Day 3: Flight to Lahsa. For the time being we say goodbye to Nepal and fly to Lhasa, the highest capital of the world. The centrally located hotel offers a good starting point to explore the city and to breathe Tibetan air for the first time.
Day 4: Free time. Also today there is still enough time to admire the former residence of the Dalai Lama and the countless monasteries and temples of the city, some of which have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or to watch the everyday life of the Tibetans with a bowl of butter tea.
Day 5: Drive to Shigatse
Day 6: Drive to Tingri at 4300m. The accommodation is again very simple, the food is still very good! From here you can already see Cho Oyu!
Day 7: Rest day for acclimatization. Also here beautiful 5.000m high hills to hike. One is surprised about the flocks of sheep with their shepherds, because it is even more barren here.
Day 8: Arrival in the drivers camp. After a long journey for acclimatization purposes we finally arrive today at the Cho Oyu Drivers Camp at 4.900m.
Day 9: Rest day: Another rest day for acclimatization and to organize the loads for the yaks.
Day 10: Departure for the intermediate camp at 5400m.
Day 11: Advance base camp at 5.650m. We reach the advanced base camp at 5650m. The sight of the mountain, which we can already enjoy here, is enormous!
