More info

At 8,013 meters the Shishapangma is the lowest eight-thousander and therefore, the fourteenth highest mountain worldwide. At the same time, because of its location in Tibet, which restricts access for it, it is also the last eight-thousander which has yet to be climbed.

Gypsophila is a genus of flowering plants in the carnation family, Caryophyllaceae. They are native to Eurasia, Africa, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Turkey has a particularly high diversity of Gypsophila taxa, with about 35 endemic species. Some Gypsophila are introduced species in other regions.

The genus name is from the Greek gypsos ("gypsum") and philios ("loving"), a reference to the gypsum-rich substrates on which some species grow. Plants of the genus are known commonly as baby's-breath, a name which also refers specifically to the well known ornamental species Gypsophila paniculata.
