Shishapangma Expedition

Shishapangma Expedition, at an altitude of 8,027 metres, is one of the world’s most famous eight-thousanders. Even though it is the smallest of this group of giants, it is still the fourteenth highest mountain on the planet! “The area above the grassy plain,” as described by the Tibetan name “Shisha Pangma,” is the view of the mountain from the north. Originally, a much more spiritual Indian name (Gosainthan) was used to describe this extraordinary peak, which means “place of the saints” in English. Despite its proximity to the Chinese-Nepalese border, the Himalayan giant is the only eight-thousand-meter peak entirely within Chinese territory, and it is also easy to reach from Kathmandu. Shisha Pangma, despite being the smallest and one of the easier eight-thousanders, was the last to be climbed, with a Chinese expedition making the first ascent in 1964. The expedition’s leader at the time, Xu Jing, the “Master of Mountaineering,” had already served as deputy leader of the 1960 Everest ascent. His team’s route has become the standard route from the northern side, leading the majority of climbers to the summit to this day. Shisha Pangma is considered to be relatively easy to climb in comparison to the other mountain giants, making it particularly appealing to newcomers above the 8,000-meter mark and as a warm-up for even bigger and more difficult mountain giants.
