Shishapangma Expedition


Mt. Shisapangma Expedition

 

Among the 14 peaks over 8000 meters in the world, Shisha Pangma of 8027 meters ranks last. It happens to be the only peak lying entirely in Tibet.

The climate of Shisha Pangma is quite close to that of Everest. The best timing for mountaineering activities comes each year in April, May and October, November.

A straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak with out taking much risk.

There are three distinct climbing routes on the Southwest face with several other logical possibilities on the West Ridge and East face. Our route picks up from Nyalam, 33km from the Nepal / Tibet border, up to the Chinese base camp at an altitude of about 5000-5400m.
