Even the first ascent by the Chinese in 1964 is questioned, due to the lack of photographic evidence. Mt. Shishapangma 8013m is considered one of the easy 8000 meter peaks with high rate of success for climbing in Tibet. When the mountaineers think of Himalaya expedition with the objective of reaching the top of 8000 meter peak with comparatively little efforts, Mount Shishapangma in Tibet would be a good choice for climbing.

 

Shishapangma Expedition Its Sanskrit name is "Gosainthan". Reinhold Messner called it "an exquisite apparition". Indeed, it is emerging out of the earth-brown Tibetan plateau a solitary snow goddess rearing its not-so-ugly head out to be admired. It was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664.This 'exquisite apparition' is located in central Himalaya and lies totally within Tibet. To the east lies Mount Molamenchen to the west Mount Xifeng and Mount Nandengri and to the northwest Mount Kangbochen.Shishapabgma, "the range above the grassy plain" was first climbed by the Chinese in 1964.

There are three distinct climbing routes on the Southwest face with several other logical possibilities on the West Ridge and East face.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. The trek to BC takes about three to five days via the Nyanang Phu Chu valley.  It is less risky and technically less demanding than most other major Himalayan peaks. Similar to Everest’s north side, the motorable road is accessible to the base camp and then the actual trail on foot and yak begins.

 

Normally three Shishapangma camp will set up in the approach of the mountain above the advance base camp. Adventure Connexion arrange both the logistic support to ABC and fully guided climbing on Shishapangma expedition.
