Tibet Gears up for Fall Climbing Season

The Tibet Autonomous Region is heading into the start of “climbing season,” which occurs in the fall and spring. With five mountains in Tibet that are more than 8,000 meters in height – including Qomolangma, which is known as the “Mount Everest of the West,” and Mount Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth highest mountain – and thousands of mountains above 6,000 meters, climbing in Tibet is a huge draw.

Mountaineering in the region tends to be most accessible in the spring and fall, and the local guides and suppliers are primed and ready for visitors to the destination.

Approximately 250 foreign mountaineers are expected to visit Tibet to climb the region’s famous mountains.
