Shishapangma Expedition - 8013m

Shishapangma is one of the very lovely mountain of China, which lies in its autonomous region Tibet. Only very few people in the world had an idea about the Shishapangma before the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers 1978. It is regarded as the very holy mountain by the Tibetans. It is the youngest mountain among the peaks situated above the height of 8000m, and there are only fourteen mountains above the 8000 m, high Himalayan ranges. Till to date many climbers have succeeded to approach 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 base camp 5000m ready to do our final preparations and acclimatization walks. Yaks transport our expedition gear from Base camp to ABC at 6,300m.
