Everest Kangshung Face Trek - Kharta Valley Trekking in Tibet

The Everest Kangshung Face trek is one of the finest camping trips in Tibet as it leads across remote tiny, pristine valleys along the way, which are dotted with beautiful lakes, alpine grazing pastures, and flowered meadows, with an excellent camping area and stunning views of Makalu, Lhotse, Kangchenjunga, and Everest Kangshung face. The Kharta valley trekking from Kharta into the beautiful Karma Valley to the Everest Kangshung Face is one of the most unusual and exciting approaches to Mount Everest, following a more remote and different route.

Finest Tibet trekking cross the Kharta Valley to the less trekked Kangshung Face of Everest.

On our trip to the Kangshung Kharta valley trek, we fly from the bustling city of Kathmandu to Tibet, the sacred land of myths and mysteries. First, we spend some days acclimatizing and exploring the sights and sounds of the Buddhist Kingdom locked away in the vastness of its mountain. Then, continuing our trip to Everest Kangshung, we drive via Gyantse and Shigatse to the start of our Tibet trek at Kharta valley, a small village on the Arun River close up against the great barrier of the Himalayas. Next, we cross the Shao La (4700 m) into the forested Karma Valley and trek to the base camp at Pethang Ringmo. From a high ridge point above the Pethang camp, we have stunning views of the Kangshung Face of Everest.

Kharta Valley Trekking in Tibet

We trek via different return routes to Kharta valley, crossing the Langma La (5330m), with the stunning Himalayan profile of Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Everest. The valleys and ridges below the snowline are richly covered with grass and thick vegetation. On completing the Everest Kangshung trek, we drive to Rongbuk valley for views of the north face of Everest. Finally, we descend from the Tibetan high plateau into the lush sub-tropical valleys of Nepal to end our incredible Tibet trekking to Kharta valley and the Kangshung Face of Everest.
