Shisapangma Expedition

Fixed Departure
11 April 2018

Situated at an altitude of 8027m in China’s autonomous region of Tibet, Mount Shishapangma is the 14th Highest Peak in the world.  Previously, very few people in the world were known to this mountain but when Chinese opened Tibet to western summiteers in 1978, people crowded to climb up this summit.

Route: The North West normal route to mount Shishapangma takes us up easy angled snow slopes up to 35 degrees with one steeper section. The necessary lines will be kept on the steeper or crevassed sections. After Acclimatizing in Zhangmu & Nyalam, we will drive to base camp (5000m) to make ready our final preparations and acclimatization walks. Yaks carry our expedition gear from Base camp 5000m, to ABC at 5,400m. Three further camps will be place en-route.

Camp 1 - 6,730m – After 6-7 hours trek we reach in camp 2 passing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the clefts.

Camp 2 - 7,045m – After 5-6 hours walk we reach camp 3 following steep ascent leading to very smooth ground below the northwest ridge.

Camp 3 - 7,400m – Summit is just 9-12 hours walk from camp 3. The situation of the groups/climbers' progress and the condition of the physical fitness, environmental condition determines further trek. Few more days may require for refreshment at different places until climbers succeeds the summit. If the climber succeeds the mountaineering early they may leave the base camp before the prescribed time as well. We move ABC to base camp of Shishapangma.

Shisapangma ExpeditionNext day we drive to Tingri (4350m) and spend night in hotel. From there, we drive on a bumpy way through grassy plain to Everest base camp 5200m, also called Chinese base camp. We have set up our camp at Everest base camp and stay two nights or more as per our member’s decision. We also make schedules of the yaks by that time. Base camp and advance base camp, fixed at the different places are kept there permanently. After walking for 2 days from there, we reach to ABC 6400m along with the Yaks. From ABC, the route goes to the east Rongbuk glacier and after that there is an easy snowy slope to the North Col at 7070m, where camp 1 is situated on snow. After that there is a long angled snow slopes to climb 7900m., where camp 2 is put on the snow with mixed rock. The route from camp 2 to camp 3 is the series of the rocks, which is quite difficult. Climb ahead from camp 2 to set up camp 3 at the height of 8300m. From camp 3 to target north summit and last evening move for final summit. The route again goes through a series of rocky climbs, and then there is a median angled snow slopes where we have to climb on joint rocks and snow until we reach camp heights of 8400m. Ropes should be fixed to climb ahead. There are safety lines, which let you rest and avoid the windy environment. After this the route is mixed with rocks and snow steps. As it is steep route, you must be careful while moving ahead. After this, the North East Ridge is wider but we should climb with great care until we reach the rope fixing place through narrow steps with a little bit height.

Though little bit exposed climbing is easy to reach second steps. After the second steps the route is in the series of sometimes seem snow covered small nude ridge. A large boulder route where we should use ladder to climb ahead comes. Rope should be fixed after that section of the route. Above these steps, the route is relatively easy with plain ground until we reach at the third steps. Now to go head it is not the series of ridge as the previous steps but we should use the fixed rope to the Col before the final summit. Again there are quite steep and needed fixed ropes to go ahead to the buttressed rocks from where there is a short section of corniced ridge to step on the highest point of the earth, Mount Everest (8848m).
