The trek to the east face of Everest also known as the Kangshung Face is one of the most gorgeous in the world. This trek is relatively unknown and it passes through pristine, untouched valleys and lakes. In fact, the entire region from Kharta to the Kama Valley - extending to the Arun Valley on the Nepal side - is part of the blessed land of Guru Rinpoche called "Be-yul Khembalung" or the Hidden Valley.
The whole region abounds with holy lakes, mountains, and the sacred "Kharta Tsechu", the long life water spring. Kharta and the Kama Valley are characterized by magnificent alpine scenery and rich flora and are home to the highest known forests in the world. Three of the world's highest peaks Everest 8,848 m, Lhotse 8,501 m, and Makalu 8,463 m overlook the valley.
We begin our trip by exploring the fabled city of Lhasa and head out to Nepal border through the rugged mountain terrain visiting places of interest enroute. At Dingri we meet our Nepali Sherpa trekking crews and then continue to Kharta from where we formally commence our trek. We are probably one of the few Nepali outfits that engage our own Sherpa staffs for all of our trekking trips in the Tibetan Himalayas.
