Cho Oyu is the sixth-highest mountain in the world at 8,188 metres (26,864 ft) above sea level. The name Cho Oyu means "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan. Although it is normally climbed from its Tibetan side, it is most commonly viewed from the south where its great south face rises high above the village of Gokyo, its beautiful lakes and the moraines of the Njojumba Glacier.
