Mt. Shishapangma Expedition

A straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak with out taking much risk.

Mt Shishapangma 8012m was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664. it?s located in central Himalaya and lies totally inside the Tibet. To the east lies Mt Molamenchen, west Mt Xifeng and Mt Nandengri and to the northwest Mt Kangbochen.

Mt 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 itinerary that begin by driving into Tibet through Kordari, crossing the himalaya through gorges of Bhote Koshi. The drive is simply awesome!! and full of excitement, we'll arrive on the other side of Himalaya from Kathmandu to Nayalam on first day. We'll spend our nights in Nayalam relaxing and hiking the hills for acclimatizing.

From Nayalam, we begin our overland travel to Chinese base camp. After arrival at Chinese Base Camp, we'll rest, acclimatize and make the necessary climb preparations before making our ascent to advanced base camp. We'll cross through steep moraines to establish Camp 1 (6730m), which should take around 4 - 6 hours depending on weather conditions and how we're feeling. We'll traverse a ridge and ascend a 50m headwall to Camp 2 (7045m) - a hard day taking 6 - 7 hours. Our strong Sherpas will fix all ropes as require. We'll establish Camp 3 (7400m) on the southwest face, and the following day, set up for the summit. Depending on fitness, we'll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps.

It will require an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield. Summit day, though long and arduous, will be well worth it when the highest peaks in the world are in view. ATE will promise to provide you one of the finest services in the industry through our excellent and professional Climbing sherpa with entire team members.
