Shishapangma Expedition from Tibet first climbed by H, Ching and nine other climbers via Tibet route in 1964, was opened to foreign climbers only in 1978. Shisapangma is one of the easiest to climb among the other 8,000 meter high mountains and it also has the high rate of successful ascends. The mountain is located in central Himalaya and lies totally within Tibet. When the mountaineers think of Himalaya expedition with the objective of reaching the top of 8000 meter peak with comparatively little efforts, Shishapangma in Tibet would be a good choice for climbing.
If you’re thinking of attempting the top of 8,000 peaks with comparatively less effort, then we advise you to ascend ‘Shishapangma’ from the Tibet side, as its relatively easy to climb. 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.
