Kharta Valley & Everest Khangshung Face Trek
Kharta Valley & Everest Khangshung Face Trek

The Everest Kangshung Face is one of the finest trekking 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.
