Cho Oyu 2006

On the 26th August 2006 the Caudwell Xtreme Everest team flew out for a dress rehearsal expedition to Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world (8201m).This was the second year in a row that members of the research expedition had visited Cho Oyu. A short distance to the west of Mt Everest, this mountain also straddles the border between Tibet and Nepal.

The aim of the expedition was to put all the medical equipment through its paces in similar combined cold and altitude circumstances to those encountered in the main expedition in Spring 2007.
