Trip Overview of Shishapangma Base Camp

Shishapangma Base Camp Trek is the long-hidden peak above 8000 m. Among fourteen peaks above 8000m Shishapangma is also the one. The peak that lies in the main Himalayan ridge approximately 80 kilometres northeast of Kathmandu Valley right behind the Langtang Himal is at an altitude of 8013 meters height. The peak of Shishapangma is explored from the Shishapangma Base Camp around 14 days trek. As it is inaccessible from Nepal, we take a day-drive to Nyalam—a place in Tibet— from Kathmandu. The next day we stay here and get used to it. The other day we precede our trek to Draabochhan. Right from Draabochhan, we follow the track on foot to Shishapangma Base Camp at an altitude of 4980m via Shingdip at 4560m.

While returning we follow the track on foot to Nyalam at an altitude of 3780m via Draabochhan. Finally, we drive to Lhasa via Lhatse at 4050m, Shigatse at 3900m and Gyantse at 3950m. After our awe-inspiring trek, we will visit the historic city of Lhasa. This wondrous city is generally regarded as the heart of Tibet and is filled with unparalleled history, culture, and beauty. The Potala Palace dominates the skyline with its powerful and ancient architecture. The numerous temples and monasteries surrounding the city, such as the Jokhang and Drepung, allow travellers to experience Tibetan Buddhism first hand. A visit to these ancient monasteries will leave you with a sense of astonishment for years to come! Stops will be made along the way in the small towns of Gyantse and Shigatse.

Allow yourself to relax in these extraordinary towns and immerse yourself in the rich Buddhist culture. You can learn a lot from these Tibetan people. It will be even easier to enjoy Tibet as nothing but the best Tibetan hotels will be provided for you. The trek takes place during the autumn climbing season. You will have a chance to sample expedition life and check out the basecamps of teams from around the world. You travel at a very careful pace without having to carry a heavy rucksack, while enjoying freshly prepared meals and lots of hot drinks, all important for acclimatization. The logistics are all taken care of, so just relax and enjoy the pure and pristine environment of the high Himalaya.

This easy, peaceful and interesting trek to Shishapangma maximizes many years of accumulated wisdom in the Himalaya, a long and proven record of safe and fun trekking through Tibet, Nepal, China, Africa, and many other fascinating mountain destinations around the world. Our friendly guides and trip leaders are experts at leading interesting groups of men and women throughout Tibet. In addition, they have an intimate knowledge of the terrain, people, customs, temples and shrines in each picturesque village you pass through.
