Mt. Shishapangma is the 14th highest mountain which lies in Tibet is the big grassy field; it is an extremely beautiful and provides awe inspiring vistas along the Himalayan ranges. Only very few people in the world have an idea about the Shishapangma before Chinese opened Tibet to the western summiteers in 1978 A.D. The Tibetans regard it as the holy mountain. It is the youngest among fourteen mountains above 8000m that lies in high Himalayan ranges of Tibet and Nepal. Mt. Shishapangma 8013 meter was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664.
Its Sanskrit name is “Gosainthan”. Reinhold Messner called it “an exquisite apparition”. Indeed, it is emerging out of the earth-brown Tibetan plateau a solitary snow goddess rearing its not-so-ugly head out to be admired.
