Shishapangma Exp (8,013M/26,289FT)

OVERVIEW

Mt. Shishapangma is the 14ht highest peak in the World with the height of (8013m/26,289ft.) and it is the last mountain over 8000meters. It lays in central Tibet and very close from Mt. Langtang in Nepal. A most famous geologist Mr. Tony Hegan explained the meaning of named Shishapangma as as it is in local Tibetan lialect, (Shisha) above a “range”, (pangma) “meadow or grassy plain”, thereby signifying the head of grassy plain. It is called “Gosainthan” in Sanskrit means place of the saint or House of God. Still,  popularly it called Shishapangma. The real high of this mountain said (8,027m./26,335ft) though some climbers claim to have reached the summit when in fact they reached the slightly lower central summit at 8,013m which is 14 meter lower of true summit of 8,027m as it consist of three peaks towering together. This mountain was climbed on 02nd May 1964 via northern climbing route led by Mr. Xu Jing of a Chinese Expedition team. Since then Shishapangma has been climbing continuously which is 120km west from Mt. Everest. Although it is the lowest mountain of 8000m peak, it require very good quality of equipment and professional mountaineering skill. If you see the shadow of Mt. Shisapangma in the Peikutso (lake) said you are lucky.  As it has previous record, April-May is the best to climb.
