Do you want to be a part of a great climb at Mount Shishapangma in Tibet?

Join me in this 42-day expedition. Mount Shishapangma is one of the highest peaks of the world. It belongs to the Himalaya’s eight thousands and, although it is the lowest of them it’s the only one which is located entirely in Tibet.

For climbers already experienced in high-altitude climbing, reaching the summit of Mount Shishapangma involves minimal risk. Besides, it is an ideal starting point for those who are initiating the challenge of climbing at eight mile.

This expedition starts in the city of Kathmandu (in Nepal). After a few days of travel, we will reach Shishapangma’s Base Camp and and have a couple days of acclimatization. Then, I’ll guide you through the Northwest Ridge (the normal route), the climbing route that will take us directly towards the Central Summit. Once there, there’ll be a final challenge: crossing a knife-edge ridge that joins the Central Summit to the south one.

The Advanced Base Camp (ABC) will be installed at 5540m, Camp 1 at 6200m, Camp 2 at 6700m and Camp 3 at 7400m.

If you are interested in this adventure, you will find the complete itinerary and program here below.

About the guide

I'm a certified NNMGA / UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guide from Nepal. I found my passion for the outdoors and climbing early in life when I was first contracted as a trekking guide for a Japanese team to Yala peak (5520m). Since then I have worked with many adventure tourism agencies and successfully summited Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Baruntse and many other peaks in Nepal. I'm fluent in German and English which allowed me to guide in the Alps several times. I have a right temperament, I'm dedicated and I have a friendly approach to lead and help the climbing teams accomplish their goals.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
