Shisha Pangma (8,035m.) Expedition

Mount Shisha Pangma is the 14th highest peak of the world, and is considered by many as one of the easiest 8000m mountains to climb. Located almost due north of Kathmandu it is the highest mountain that sits entirely in Tibetan side of the Himalaya. It is the highest peak in the Jugal Himal, which is contiguous with, and often considered a part of, the Langtang Himal. The combined Jugal/Langtang Himal straddles the Tibet/Nepal border. Since it is on the dry north side of the Himalayan crest, and further away from the lower terrain of Nepal, it has somewhat less dramatic vertical relief than most other major Himalayan peaks. It is a massive peak with a long, steep, craggy southern face rising to an elevation of 8013m/26,289 feet and making it an imposing sight to all would be climbers. In Nepal the mountain is known by Gosainthan (place of the saint).) and in Tibetan the name Shishapangma means "The mountain overlooking the grassy plains".

Shisha Pangma had only recorded 201 successful ascents (to the main summit) and 19 fatalities. As of January of 2000, over 434 people have successfully made the climb to the Central Summit, but only 165 people have continued to the Main Summit, just over an hours climb away, separated by a knife edge ridge of sometimes very unstable snow.
