Shishapangma Base Camp Trek
Overview

The North Shishpangma Base Camp is nearly 50 km west from friendship highway. We commence overland from Kathmandu to Nyalam where a day acclimatisation is taken. The following day we continue by road to the high pass of Nyalam Thong-La (Lablung-La - 5100 m.) shortly after crossing the high pass we branch west and continue along a grassy road before finally reaching our destination Shisapangma Base Camp.

The base camp is an elongated series of meadows wedged between ridge and the river draining from Shisapangma's Yambukangala glacier, the main ice floe on this side of the mountain. A long but rewarding outing from base camp is the hike to advance base camp and the snout of this glacier's then jumbled surface of frozen ice waves. Another good hike follows the crest of the ridge directly across the river from the base camp, providing outstanding views of the entire Shisapangma and Peiku Lake region. The base camp is so far from glacier that most people can not trek to advance base camp and return the same day.

A trek to Shishpangma Base camp can be combined with Lhasa, Everest Base Camp (north face) and Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar tour. Travelers can fly to Lhasa from Kathmandu or from mainland China, where they spend a few days for sightseeing tour and acclimatization. After visiting Lhasa they travel Gyantse via Yamdruk Tso (Turquoise lake), Shigatse, Sakya and eventually to the Everest Base Camp (north face). They spend a day to trek to Everest Base Camp and the next day travel to Shisapangma Base Camp. After trekking two days in Shisapangma Base Camp we travel to Kathmandu via Nyalam and Zhang-Mu.

For those, we wish to make a trekking to Shisapangma Base Camp combining with a journey to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar can visit Shisapangma Base Camp in the beginning then continue their journey to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar. After visiting Mt. Kailash & lake Manasarovar, they return to Kathmandu via same route. However, alternatively they can travel to Lhasa and fly back from there, if they like. Best Season: May to September
