ABOUT Shisha Pangma (8012m) Expedition

Mount Sishapangma is the 14th highest peak of the world with an altitude of 8027 meter. And this mountain is also called Gosainthān. This mountain is considered as one of the easiest 8000m mountains to climb. Shishapangma is also the highest peak in the Langtang Himal area. It was the last 8,000 meter peak to be climbed, due to its location entirely within Tibet and the restrictions on visits by foreign travelers to the region imposed by authorities of the Government of China until it first opened for foreign climbers in 1978.It was first climb by the Chinese in 1964. There are three distinct climbing routes on the Southwest face with several other logical possibilities on the West Ridge and East face.

All our featured trips are surrounded with an ethereal aura. The undertaking seems mysterious, risky, and exciting; truly, it is all of these and more. The vast experience combined with devotion and dedication of our team, Sherpa Shepherds have developed the skills and attitude to bridge the gap between the unthinkable and the irresistible. Today, Trekking Experts safely and consciously pursues the age-old human fascination with defying gravity.
