Shishapangma Expedition - Day(s)

The Shishapangma Expedition is popular as the 14th highest peak of the world. This peak is about 8000m high from the sea level and most of people considered it as one of the easiest mountaineering adventures. Shishapangma mountain is highest peak in Langtang Himal, located totally within Tibet in central Homalaya. This peak is known as “Gosaitan” in  Nepali which means “The Holy Place”. The Tibetan name is “Xixapangma” which means literally "The Mountain overlooking the grassy plains” perfectly describing the location of the mountain as seen from north among vast rolling hills covered by green short-grass and incredible boulders. Chinese climber named Hsu Ching and his ten friends team had made first successful Shishapangma Expedition ascent to the summit in 1964  and it was finally opened to foreign teams in 1980.
