Shishapangma is the world’s 14th highest and one of the youngest mountains above 8000m.It  lies south-central Tibet just 6 kilometres away from the Nepal-Tibet border along the Himalayan range. This mountain is also called by the Tibetans as “the big grassy field”. Only very few climbers have so far scaled Mt. Shishapangma after the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers in 1978 A.D.  It is straight forward to climb and less technically demanding. It would be an appropriate mountain for those climbers who want to scale 8,000m peak without taking much risk. It is the only 8000m peak completely situated within China on the Tibetan plateau.

Climbers can choose anyone of three routes either through the Southwest face or Northwest face or Northeast ridge. The standard route is via the northwest face and North ridge. It is relatively easy route with access by land transport up  to base camp at 5,000 m. We use yaks transport to carry our expedition equipments from Base camp 5000m, to ABC at 5,400m and then further  three camps we fix before we summit the Shishapangma peak. Route to southwest face is steeper and technically more demanding and involves 2,250 metres ascent.

It was first climbed by a 10- member Chinese expedition team in 1964 led by Xǔjìng successfully. The first U.S. expedition team led by Mike Browning, Chris Pizzo and Glenn Porzak ascended the summit in September, 1983, via Northeast Face.  Until 2000 over 434 people have successfully scaled the summit to Mount Shishapangma. The first winter ascent  was made by Simone Moro and Peter Morawsky.
