Mt. Shishapangma Expedition

Mt. Shishapangma (8012m.) is the only one eight thou sander that lies fully in Tibet Autonomous Region of the Peoples Republic of China. Mt. Sishapangma which is one of the youngest among fourteen other eight thou sanders is also regarded as one of the holy mountain in China. Mt. Shishapangma Expedition started in 1974 AD only after Chinese government opened Tibet for the Western summiteers. Normally the summiteers approach the peak through its North West Ridge which leads forward with easy angle slopes of 35 degree with only one steep section.
