Shishapangma is one of the lovely mountain of Tibet, which lies in its autonomous region. Only very few people in the world have an idea about the Shishapangma before Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiters in 1978 A.D. It is regarded as the holy mountain by the Tibetans. It is the youngest among fourteen mountains above 8000m that lies in high Himalayan ranges.

Route:
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 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 snow slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed.

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

C amp 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 their 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.
