Shisapangma Expedition

Overview

$dataTitle

There is probably no other country in the world that arouses as much curiosity as this vast expanse of myth and religion known to the world as Tibet. Steeped deep in religious mysticism and ancient practices. In Tibet each mountain has its own story and each story is the quintessence of fortitude and steadfastness, a quality that the denizens of the land hold most precious. Share these immortal moments with the mountains and its people.

Everest in Tibet straddles the east section of the Nepal/Tibet border, with its northern side lying in the Tingri Country. Before 1949 all approaches had to be made from Tibet as Nepal was closed. Once the latter opened its doors that of the former were shut. It was only in 1980 that Tibet was reopened for expeditions and with that a whole new world of exciting opportunities unfolded. Since the earliest Himalayan expeditions the North Ridge has represented staggering achievement. It was this side of the mountain that the pioneering British expeditions of the early 1900's had come. Reinhold Messner had this to say. "...The north side of Everest was to me one of the most historic and interesting places of all".

The route is complex and difficult and the summit day long and tiring but the allure of climbing the Everest from the Tibet side is always magical. Base camp is established at Rongbuk glacier at 5180m though the real climbing starts at camp 1 at an elevation of 7000m.
