Hey Trunl,

it can be found in this FAQ (http://7summits.com/faq/index.php?display=faq&nr=48&catnr=8&prog=p1&lang=en).

As you can read there, the prices can differ enourmously, make sure when you are planning your budget that you include costly items like:
- gear and clothing
- flights

Also decide if you want to climb mountains like Denali unguided (your price) or guided (double to triple that amount).

Keep climbing! 8)

It's Cho Oyu, at least that is what the Chinese Mountaineering association calls it.
