Mount Shishapangma is one of the very beautiful and holy mountain of China’s autonomous regions of Tibet. Only a very few people in the world had idea about the mount Shishapangma before the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers in 1978. It is the youngest mountain among the 14 peaks situated above the height of 8000m. Till to date many climbers have succeeded to approach on its summit.
Route: The North West normal route to mount Shishapangma takes us up easy angled snow slopes to 35 degrees with one steeper section. The necessary lines will be kept on the steeper or crevassed sections. Following our acclimatization in Zhangmu & Nyalam, we will arrive at the base camp (5000m) to make ready our final preparations and acclimatization walks. Yaks transport our expedition gear from Base camp 5000m, to ABC at 5,400m. Three further camps will be placed to go ahead en-route.
Camp 1 - 6,730m – After 6-7 hours walk we reach in camp 2 passing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed.
Camp 2 - 7,045m – After 5-6 hours we reach camp 3 via steep ascent leading to very smooth ground below the northwest ridge.
Camp 3 - 7,400m – From Camp 3, it takes 9-12 hours to conquer the summit. The situation of the groups/climbers physical fitness; and also the favorable condition of the weather depends the climbing ahead. Sometimes the extra additional days are also required for acclimatization at different places until climbers succeed the summit. If the climber succeeds the mountaineering early than the scheduled term they may leave the base camp before the prescribed time as well.
