Mountain Shishapangma

Mt Shishapangma

A straightforward climb and not technically demanding, an excellent mountain for climbers wanting to scale their first 8,000m peak without taking much risk. Mount Shishapangma (8012m) “the range above the grassy plain” was first climbed by H. Ching along with 9 other climbers in 1964. It’s located in the central Himalayas and lies inside Tibet.
There are three distinct climbing routes on the Southwest face with several other logical possibilities on the West Ridge and East face.
It will require an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield. Summit day, though long and arduous, will be well worth it when the highest peaks in the world are in view.

who can


Climbing Shishapangma requires prior experience of climbing mountains. It is by no means an ‘easy 8000er’, as it is oftenly wrongly portrayed. One must have already experienced the rigors of high-altitude, involving excellent physical fitness, technical proficiency, perseverance to endure harsh weather conditions, and the ability to stay away from home for extended periods of time.

To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of pre-requisites that are required to climb Mt.Manaslu:

Physical Fitness:

This forms the most important aspect of climbing Mt.Manaslu. Climbers are expected to have an exceptional level of physical fitness. Consistent, structured training specific to mountaineering over a period of 12-18 months will be an absolute requirement for anyone looking to climb Mt.Manaslu.

Mountaineering Experience:

Climbers must have a substantial amount of mountaineering experience to take part in this climb. We prefer climbers who have already climbed a few peaks in the 5000m-6000m and at least one 7000m peak. This ensures that the climber is well experienced and aware of all the finer aspects of mountaineering like the technical know-how (Rock, Snow & Ice), camping proficiency, and ability to stay & perform for weeks together in a high altitude environment.
