Shishapangma Climbing (8013m)- 40 days
Best Climbing peak in Tibet.
Shishapangma is the 14th highest mountain on the planet. It is located in the central Himalayas and lies in Tibet. The route is a straightforward climb and not technically demanding. It is the youngest mountain among 8000m peaks. Mt. Shishapangma 8013 m was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664.
The journey to the plateau of Tibet is very exciting. It follows the narrow corridor that leads to Nyalam - a trading town very close to the caves of Milarepa, the sage in Tibet whose Tantric Buddhism have left a deep impression on Tibet's culture.
Drive to Zangmu via Arniko highway and cross Friendship Bridge. At the friendship bridge staff from Tibet Mountaineering Association will be waiting for our expedition group. Expedition Team members will drive on a 4WD land cruiser and expedition equipment will be carried by truck. After driving for 3 days (1 night in Zangmu and 2 Nights in Nylam) we will reach Mount Shishapangma Base camp. Shishapangma base camp is situated at an altitude of (4600m). We will set camp here for 2 days to acclimatize and check expedition equipment once more.
It is a long day trek to reach Shishapangma advance base camp. It is situated at an altitude of (5400 m). Mt. Shishapangma Expedition climbing starts from this point.
Camp 1: 6400m. After hard climbing you can reach Punngpa Ri which can be said the camp 1. The surface is 55- 60 % vertical ice slop elevation here. Some times it becomes a very hard situation here because of heavy snow-rock fall for which you have to use a helmet for the protection. From Base camp, we should start to climb at about 2 AM at night to secure rock and snow falling.
Camp 2: 7000m. After many hours of continuous climbing you reach behind the second narrow rocky tower, which can be call camp two for your rest. This camp situated a little bit in a dangerous place because it is under a serac. So is up to you whether to fix your camp or to go further ahead.
Camp 3: 7500m. From Camp 2 it is very easy climbing to reach cam 3 which is approximately at the height of 7500m. And if the day is clear and sunny you can feel very warm there though you are on the snowy mountain.
