Kangchenjunga 01 05 Mountain Flight Shishapangma Close Up  [5 of 16]


Here is a close-up of the summit area of Shishapangma, the 14th highest mountain in the world at 8012m, shining in the early morning sun from Kathmanduís Mountain flight. The steep and treacherous southwest face is in shadow on the left. The north face is just visible in the sun on the right. The peak to the right of the sloping long sunny ridge in the middle right is Pungpa Ri (7445m), first climbed in 1982. On the far left below Pungpa Ri with its west face in shadow and the east face fully lit is Nyanang Ri (7071m), called the Rock Tooth.
