Description

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.
