Shishapangma Expedition

SHISHAPANGMA EXPEDITION 8012m
The 14th Highest Peak in the world

Mt. Shishapangma lies on the Northern Himalaya Range in Tibet. This is one of the very lovely mountain of Tibet - China, only a very few people in the world had idea about the Shishapangma before the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers iloven 1978. The Tibetans regard it as the very holy mountain. It is the youngest mountain among the peaks situated above the height of 8000m, and there are only fourteen mountains above in the 8000m high Himalayan ranges. Till to date many climbers have succeeded to approach on its apex.

The North West normal route to Shishapangma takes us up easy angled snow slopes up to 35 degrees with one steeper section. The necessary lines will be fixed and placed on the steeper or crevassed sections. Following our acclimatization in Zhangmu & Nyalam, we will arrive at the base camp (5000m) to make ready our final preparations and acclimatization walks. Yaks transport our expedition gear from Base camp 5000m, to ABC at 5,400m. Three further camps will be place en-route.
