Mount Shishapangma Expedition (8013m.) - 47 Days

Shishapangma (8,013 m) is a beautiful mountain, entirely located within Tibet. It is the 14th highest mountain in the world. It offers a splendid panorama of the Himalaya range. Among Hindus, it is known as Gosainthan (Abode of God Shiva). It was the last 8,000 meter peak to be climbed, due to the restrictions on visits by foreigners to the region imposed by Tibetan and Chinese authorities till 1978AD. The climatic condition of Shisapangma is somehow similar to that of the Mt. Everest.

Shishapangma is not a technically difficult to climb and a short trek has the access to Base Camp. During this trip you have a great chance to explore mysterious Tibetan plateau, cultural, natural heritage and panoramic views of high Himalayan peaks. During the treks and the ascent, you will enjoy incredible landscapes of the surrounding nature and also stunning views of other incredible peaks. Besides the mountaineering part, the expedition also allows you to discover the Tibetan culture trekking through some traditional small villages. April-May and October-November are the best climbing seasons to climb Shisapangama. AlpineTrav, Treks and Expeditions manages your trip as per your requirement.
