Shishapangma trek is an amazing adventure trekking trip that can be started from Kathmandu or Lhasa. This trek does not require any trekking experience; anyone with a good physical fitness would be able to do this trek. Shisha Pangma is known in Tibetan as "the god of the grasslands", is the lowest of the world's fourteen 8000 meter peaks. It is also the only 8000-meter peak located wholly in Tibet. After an early attempt, it was first climbed in 1964 by a Tibetan-Chinese expedition and was opened to foreign climbers in 1978. The peak originally carried a Hindustani name: Gosainthan. Our trek to the base of the world's fourteenth highest mountain allows you to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Tibetan Plateau, and walk to a very high altitude on good snow-free trails providing breathtaking views of surrounding high peaks of the Himalayas.
