  • We have estimated about 20-days to make summit of Mount Shisha Pangma. During these days you’ll rest in ABC for better acclimatization, will rotate to upper camps for practice and also gain some knowledge about climbing during these days. Your climbing guide will guide and will train you for climbing and will instruct you about skill of climbing. In the meantime, your climbing guide will supply equipment like oxygen, tents, high food, rope etc to higher camps during these days and also will set camp above advance base camp.
 
  • Generally, we shall set up three camps above advance base camp. First of all, we shall set camp I at around 6400-meters from sea level. Camp I (6400m) is located on a flat snowfield with plenty of space for tents. This becomes a deposit camp that allows supplies to be ferried up to the higher camps. From advance base camp it takes almost 3 hours to reach the crampons point, once on the glacier it is another 2-3 hours to reach camp one. Camp one is a great location to see the view of sunrise and sunset. After camp one we fix about 20-30m and 20M of rope on a 55º slope. From Camp I, then we shall set up camp II which will be around 7100 meter above sea level. Camp II will be fixed at about 7100 meter. From Camp I you’ll walk on flat for almost 30 minutes, after that you encounter fixed lines at 45-50º. Generally the climbing from camp I to camp II is safe but there are some big crevasses that can be difficult to see because they are covered in snow. From camp II you will be able to view Langtang-Ri.
 
  • Before making summit plan, we shall set up cam III which will be 7500 meter above sea level. Climbing from camp II to camp III will be quite strenuous. For one and a half hours you will ascend 150-meter of fixed line on a 25º snow slope. From here you’ll continue up for another two and a half hour to stair ridge, this is now just below the central summit ridge. From this point continue for a half hour to a col, this is camp III. Here you will rest from till 11:00 PM in the night to make summit attempt. Summit day will be a steep ascent on a snow and rock ridge to a snow pinnacle that is the false central summit. Most climbers finish at 8013 meter and do not attempt the snowy knife-edge ridge to the real summit that is 18m higher. The view from this particular summit will be amazing; from here you can see Cho Oyu, Everest and number of 7000m snowcapped peaks surrounding Shishapangma. Most climbers leave for the summit push at about 11 PM to 12 Am and reach the summit between 07: 00-09: 00 AM in the morning. Depending on group’s strength, some people attempts summit from camp II too. For those climbers that choose to summit the real summit the greatest challenge for them is traversing the knife-edge ridge between the two summits. If you are considering traversing the knife edge ridge we recommend that the forecast has 0% chance of wind, snow or low visibility. The ridge would be very risky in bad conditions. After summit, back down to camp II for overnight. The next day you will be descending to base camp.
