Shishapangma Expedition

Trip Overview

Shishapangma 8012m (14th Highest Peak in the world)-

Shishapangm is a lovely mountain of China, which lies in the autonomous region called the Tibet of China, only a very few people in the world had idea about the Shishapangma before the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers in 1978. The Tibetans regard it as a 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 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.

Camp 1 – 6,730m – After 6-7 hours walk we reach in camp 2 through crossing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed.

Camp 2 – 7,045m – After 5-6 hours we reach camp 3 via steep ascent leading to very gentle ground below the northwest ridge.

Camp 3 – 7,400m – From Camp 3, it takes 9-12 hours to reach on the summit. The situation of the groups/climbers’ progress and the condition of the physical fitness; and also the favorable condition of the weather depends the climbing ahead.

Some times the extra additional days are also required for acclimatization at different places until climbers succeeds the summit. If the climber succeeds the mountaineering early than the scheduled tenure they may leave the base camp before the prescribed time as well.

Climbing Sherpa for Himalayan:
We facilitate highly professional, well trained and qualified climbing Sherpas for the your expeditions. Many climbers avoid Sherpa guides for the climbing, so because of this, they have been found to face many hindrances on their way. It is advised that you take Sherpas along on the expedition as they are very useful and can make climbing easier and safer. Most of the groups, who have gone with the Sherpa guides on the expedition, are found to have succeeded as per our past experiences. So we suggest you start your expedition along with the Sherpa guides.
