Shishapangma or Xixapangma (8046 meters) is probably the least known of the world’s fourteen peaks over 8000m. It is the only peak above 8000m that is wholly within Tibet but although only 80 km north east of Kathmandu, it is hidden from Nepal, tucked away behind the main Himalayan range.
We will trek on the southeast side of Shishapangma, where the monsoon just manages to push over Nepal’s Jugal Himal, bringing some rain most nights from June until early September. In the season when we trek here, most days are clear and we will have stunning lush meadows and an outstanding display of wildflowers high into the mountains.


Shishapangma BC 03


The normal Shishapangma trekking route back tracks down to Nyalam from the Base Camp, however being trekkers, we don’t like back tracking, so we have come up with this great alternative trek to Ngora via the beautiful Kong Tso (lake). This section from the Tshongdü Chu Valley to Ngora village, via Kong Tso La, takes us two days starting from the herder camp at Shingdip.
