Chinese scientific research team reaches Mount Cho Oyu summit

A Chinese expedition team of 18 members successfully reached the summit of Mount Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth-highest peak at 8,201 meters, located on the China-Nepal border. This marks the first time Chinese scientists have scaled a peak above 8,000 meters, apart from Mount Everest. The team’s mission includes setting up a weather station, measuring snow and ice thickness, and collecting ice cores and rock samples from the summit. This expedition highlights China’s capability to conduct high-altitude scientific research effectively. It is part of a comprehensive scientific expedition on the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau initiated in 2017, involving 120 scientists researching water, ecology, and human activities in the region.
