Among the several reasons, low cost of royalty and other mountaineering services and easy route to the summit are the key factors to attract more Everest climbers from North Col.

The Shishapangma is the only completely 8000er stretch out on Tibetan soil. Up to lower, 5000 m the base camp lain highly can be driven as at the Cho Oyu with jeeps - afterwards however the distances from camp to camp are substantial, since the route moves first over little steep area.
