Shisapangma Expedition(North)



The ShishaPangma is the 14th highest peak of the world; considered by many as one of the easiest 8000m mountains to climb. Shisha Pangma is the highest peak in the Langtang Himal. Its trademark a long, steep, craggy southern face rising over 2000m, makes an imposing sight to all would be climbers. The Nepalese name of the peak is Gosaitan meaning "The Holy Place". The Tibetan name is Xixapangma and it means literally "The Mountain overlooking the grassy plains".


Shisha Pangma was the last of the 8000m peaks to be climbed. The first ascent is credited to Hsu Ching and his ten-man Chinese climbing team in 1964 and it was finally opened to foreign teams in 1980.
