Everest kangshung face trek - Kharta valley trekking in Tiber

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

The Everest Kangshung Face trek is one of the finest camping trip in Tibet as it leads across remote tiny pristine valleys along the way which are dotted with beautiful lakes, alpine gazing pastures and flowered meadows, with 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 interesting approaches to Mount Everest following a more remote and different route.

In our trip to Kangshung Kharta valley trek, we fly from the bustling city of Kathmandu to Tibet, a sacred land of myths and mysteries. We spend some day's acclimitising and exploring the sights and sounds of Buddhist Kingdom locked away in its mountains vastness.

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. We cross the Shao La (4700m) 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 route 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. We descend from Tibetan high plateau into the lush sub-tropical valleys of Nepal to end our incredible Tibet trekking to Kharta valley and Kangshung Face of Everest.
