Shisapangma Summit

Shisapangma Summit

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. Located in central Himalaya, this 8000+ meter peak lies totally within Tibet.

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. Located in central Himalaya, this 8000+ meter peak lies totally within Tibet. To the east lies Mount Molamenchen to the west Mount Xifeng and Mount Nandengri and to the northwest Mount Kangbochen. There are three distinct climbing routes on the Southwest face with several other logical possibilities on the West Ridge and East face. Our route picks up from Nyalam, 33km from the Nepal / Tibet border, up to the Chinese base camp at an altitude of about 5,000m-5,400m. The trek to BC takes about three to five days via the Nyanang Phu Chu valley.
