Shishapangma Expedition
Duration: 41 Nights / 42 Days
Altitude: 8,027m
Location: Tibet

Our Shishapangma Expedition to the 14th tallest peak in the world, at 8,027 meters and is considered one of the easiest of the 8,000 meter peaks to summit. Its trademark is a long, steep, craggy, southern face, rising over 2,000 meters, which makes an imposing site for most would be climbers. The Napalese name for this mountain is Gosaitan, which means “The Holy Place”. This mountain is also known as the mountain that overlooks the grassy plain, by the people of Tibet. Shishapagnma was the last of the 8,000 meter peaks to be summited in 1964 by Chinese climber Joseph Hsu Ching. Shishapagnma was not opened to foreign climbers until 1980. Shishapangma is the third tallest peak in Tibet behind Mt. Everest and Cho Oyu.

Guide Pemba set up Cho Oyu base camp at 4800 meter which is our base station for the summit push and acclimation climbing training. Like in base camp each members have personal private tent. Dining tent with comfortable chair and table, heated, carpeted and lit by solar electricity give you required comfort on your stay there.
