days Mount Shisanpangma

Overview

Mount Shishapangma expedition takes you to the elevation of 8027m above sea level where snowy peaks forms a chain of irregular mountains rising high above thick clouds. Shishapangma is also widely recognized as Gosainthan and is the 14th tallest mountain the world. It lies on the territory of Nepal and Tibet. There is a restriction on visit imposed by authorities of Tibet for foreign travelers. Luckily, the venture to Mount Shishapangma is open from Nepal and Amazing Nepal Holidays takes pride in organizing expeditions to this beautiful Himalayan range.

According to local Tibetan dialect, Shishapangma means “crest above the grassy plains”. Shisha usually refers to “comb” or a “range” and Pangma means “grassy plains”. For Nepali though, Shishapangma has a different origin. It has a Sanskrit name “Gosainthan” which relates closely to “Holy place of the saint” or “Home of God”. So, we can establish that Mount Shishapangma is regarded as sacred in nature. The mountain is considered as one of the most accessible 8000m mountains to climb upon. Being the highest peak in the Langtang Himal range, Shishapangma is very gigantic, steep and has somewhat less dramatic vertical reef than other major mountains. The Langtang/Jugal himal range spreads between the Tibetan and Nepalese border. Shishapangma has a central peak which can go high as much as 8008m and is also the only eight-thousand tall mountain within Chinese territory. The slightly lower west summit lies at an altitude of 8013m while the true summit of Shishapangma is at an altitude of 8027m. Climbing the summit of Shishapangma will give you the opportunity to escape the crowds of busier Himalayas like Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Annapurna. The first successful attempt to the summit of Shishapangma was performed by Hsu Ching and his team in 1964. The expedition can be made from both North and South faces. The climb is comparatively less taxing and demanding from the North face of Shishapangma. The South face of Shishapangma is not recommended for beginners due to its impracticability. Although for an expert climber with good level of alpine climbing experience, the south face can be more fruitful due to the imposing challenges and steeps. There are separate base camps for both North and South side of Shishapangma. The accessibility to both camps is very fitting and appropriate. The climb starts from the Advanced Shishapangma Base Camp (5800m) located on the lateral moraine of the Shishapangma glacier. For those looking to sweeten up their experience, Amazing Nepal Holidays provides surreal accommodation and adventure possibilities  whilst on this expedition.
