Mt Shishapangma Expedition

Mt. Shishapangma is the 14th highest mountain which lies in its autonomous region, known by the Tibetans as “the big grassy field”, it is an extremely beautiful and provides awe inspiring vistas along the Himalayan range. Only very few people in the world have an idea about the Shishapangma before Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers in 1978 A.D. The Tibetans regard it as the holy mountain. It is the youngest among fourteen mountains above 8000m that lies in high Himalayan ranges of Tibet and Nepal. Mt. Shishapangma 8013 meter was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664.

Its Sanskrit name is “Gosainthan”. Reinhold Messner called it “an exquisite apparition”. Indeed, it is emerging out of the earth-brown Tibetan plateau a solitary snow goddess rearing its not-so-ugly head out to be admired.
