Shishapangma 8012m. the 14th Highest Peak in the world
Shishapangm is one of the very lovely mountains of China, which lies in the autonomous region called the Tibet of China, only a very few people in the world had an idea about the Shishapangma before the Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers iloven 1978. The Tibetans regard it as the very holy mountain. It is the youngest mountain among the peaks situated above the height of 8000m, and there are only fourteen mountains above in the 8000m high Himalayan ranges. Till to date, many climbers have succeeded to approach on its apex.
The North West normal route to Shishapangma takes us up easy angled snow slopes up to 35 degrees with one steeper section. The necessary lines will be fixed and placed on the steeper or crevassed sections. Following our acclimatization in Zhangmu & Nyalam, we will arrive at the base camp (5000m) to make ready our final preparations and acclimatization walk. Yaks transport our expedition gear from Base camp 5000m, to ABC at 5,400m. Three further camps will be placed en-route.
Camp 1 - 6,730m - After 6-7 hours walk we reach in camp 2 through crossing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed.
Camp 2 - 7,045m - After 5-6 hours we reach camp 3 via steep ascent leading to the very gentle ground below the northwest ridge.
Camp 3 - 7,400m - From Camp 3, it takes 9-12 hours to reach on the summit. The situation of the groups/climbers' progress and the condition of the physical fitness; and also the favourable condition of the weather depends on the climbing ahead.
Sometimes the extra additional days are also required for acclimatization at different places until climbers succeed the summit. If the climber succeeds the mountaineering early than the scheduled tenure they may leave the base camp before the prescribed time as well.
Climbing Sherpa for Himalayan:
We facilitate highly professional, well trained and qualified climbing Sherpas for your expeditions. Many climbers avoid Sherpa guides for the climbing, so because of this, they have been found to facing many hindrances on their way. If you take Sherpas along with you on the expedition, they are very useful in your each and every step of support, which makes your climbing easier to restore your strained energy; and it gives you vigorous strength for your next day's climbing. Most of the groups, who have gone with the Sherpa guides on the expedition, is found to be succeeded as per our past experiences. So we suggest you operate your expeditions along with the Sherpa guides.
