Cho Oyu and Beyond ...

Cho Oyu climb for a cause is an awareness and fund-raising campaign aimed to help provide much needed education to our often neglected indigenous children in the remote parts of the country. The climb objective is to set a new altitude record, an attempt of the 6th highest mt & one of the peaks in the death zone. This event intends to bridge the education gap, and hope we provide our indigenous children a better future -- safe and away from a possible 'death zone'.

The Next 600 Meters

Why I climbed Cho Oyu

(Cho Oyu Sep-2005 climb, 8201m)
"... I was walking the last few meters of the summit plateau, towards the
real summit, towards East, and then there it was, looming in the distance -- the greatest mountain of all - Everest (8848m). The summit of Cho Oyu seems to be just a doorstep, and standing on its top, I was hypnotized by the sight of the mountain next to it, it's bigger, it's higher - and it made me wonder, how it's like to climb the next 600 meters -- how it's like to climb... the top of mt Everest..."
