Shishapangma was the last 8000m peak to be climbed. It is the closest 8000m Peak for possible Expedition from Kathmandu even though it lies totally in Tibet. This expedition is easier and less technical as well as better commercial from Mt. Shishapangma’s North face. Hsu Ching and his group Chinese climbing team in 1964 had made first successful to be in summit via northwest face of Mt. Shishapangma.
Shishapangma Expedition can be made from its South and North faces. Due to a massif 2000m face and few challenging lines the South face of Mt. Shishapangma requires a good level of alpine climbing experience. The south face route is not feasible for the beginners of mountain climbing. There are two separate base camps for Shishapangma Expedition. They are to be used for Expedition Base separately from south and Northside. The access to both Base Camps is very convenient by SUV from Nyalam, a considerable and rapidly expanding town and two days of the hike to the Advanced Base Camp (5800m) of Mt. Shishapangma
