Shishapangma Expedition

Shishapangma Expedition Shishapangma is considered one of the easy 8000 meter peaks with high rate of success for climbing in Tibet. It was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1964 and was opened to foreign climbers in 1978. This mountain is located in central Himalaya and lies totally within Tibet. When the mountaineers think of Himalaya expedition with the objective of reaching the top of 8000 meter peak with comparatively little efforts, Shishapangma in Tibet would be a good choice for climbing. 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.
