Trip Highlight:

Ranking 14th among the highest peaks on earth, Mount Shishapangma is one of the easiest 8,000m mountains. Unlike the 8,000ers that lie either in Nepal or Nepal-Tibet Border, Shishapangma is the only 8,000er that completely lies inside Tibet. In fact, the mountain came to limelight only after the Chinese Government opened Tibet to the Western summiteers in 1978. Shishapangma means “the range above the grassy plain” and Tibetans worship the mountain as a holy being. The mountain is also the youngest as well as smallest of its other 8,000m cousins.

The normal route to Shishapangma is the North West Ridge. The route takes us up easy angled snow slopes up to 35 degrees with one steeper section. Sherpas fix the lines on the steeper or crevassed sections. The summit day is the most arduous day in the climb – the summit lying on the far end of the high snowfield. However, all the hard labor gets rewarded on the summit with the magnificent views the highest peaks unfolding before your eyes.
