Mt. Shishapangma is located in south-central of Tibet and few kilometres from the border with Nepal. It is the highest peak in the Jugal Himal, which is contiguous with and often considered a part of the Langtang Himal. It is the only one eight-Thousand peak entirely within Chinese territory. Mt. Shishapangma is the fourteenth highest mountain of the world and the lowest of the eight-Thousand Peak. It is the last 8,000 meter peak; due to its location entirely within Tibet and the restrictions on outside visitation to the region imposed by Tibetan and Chinese authorities. In the Tibetan name shi sha sbang ma means "crest above the grassy plains". Since it is on the dry north side of the Himalayan crest and further away from the lower terrain of Nepal, it has somewhat less dramatic vertical relief than most other major Himalayan peaks. It was first climbed via the North Face on May 2, 1964 by a Chinese expedition led by X Jìng.
