The Eastern Side of Everest   Tour Code:TIB002

The eastern Kangshung face of Mt. Everest (Chomolungma) and the valley beneath it is one of the most fascinating and little-visited locations in the Himalaya. The first three days in Lhasa and the drive through Gyantse and Shigatse allows us to visit some of the most important cultural and religious sites in central Tibet before reaching our trailhead. We then drive deep into the Himalaya and the starting point of our trek in the Kharta. We walk past alpine meadows, juniper and rhododendron forests, and mountain tarns to reach the outlet of the Kangshung glacier. Here we walk beneath the soaring faces of Chomolonzo and Makalu into the lap of Chomolungma and Lhotse and make high camp in the meadows beside the glacier. With nothing but snow peaks towering above us while we relax in the idyllic meadow of Pethang Ringmo This is an unforgettable location far from any road and nestled amongst the world's highest peaks. The "undiscovered" side of Everest; the trek is an absolute classic, a real Tibetan journey through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Himalayas.
