Shishapangma Base Camp Trek
The long hidden peak above 8000m is Mt. Shishapangma. Among fourteen peaks above 8000m, Shishapangma is one. The peak that lies in the main Himalayan ridge approximately 80 kilometers north east 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 (3780m) via Draabochhan. Finally we drive to Lhasa via Lhatse (4050m), Shigatse (3900m) and Gyantse (3950m). After 2-days stay in Lhasa, we fly back to Kathmandu. The interested climbers to explore fair and easier trek from Tibetan side has the best option to trek to Shishapangma Base Camp. The trail to Shishapangma Base Camp provides remarkable as well as varied experience with its alpine walk and alluring meadows of green lush. A fine exposure of colourful wild flowers can also be experienced on the way. The weather mostly remains here fine and clear during the day, but most of the nights during June to September remains wet.
Unique Adventure International always efforts to operate the itinerary as per the negotiation made. Not always, but extreme adventure activities being operated in remote mountain regions, bears high risk and needs to be flexible. Unpredictable incidents, accident, weather conditions or flight schedule may be the reason that forces us to make slight changes in our scheduled programs. We expect your patience and cooperation in such circumstances.
