Home:: Tibet:: Kharta and Kangshung Valleys (Everest East Face)

KHARTA AND KANGSUNG VALLEYS TIBET 

 

To the world's most hidden valleys around the Everest...  ...

The highest of the great mountains of the world seems to require a single gestur eof mastery in order to establish as the queen of them all, immense in its solitary and unrivalled supremacy. The allure, and the remarkable spectacle offered by the icy mass of Everest, which looms over the desert highlands of Tibet are as enchanting today as they did since centuries.

To the north, the great mountains look out directly over an arid, inhospitable highland, where the presence of human is infrequent and limited. This picture changes only to the east of Everest, where the high Arun Valley, where the humidity of the monsoons is felt, shows a visitor forests of rhododendron and juniper, which give way toward the border to great evergreen woods. Here, more than to the south, the presence of human monuments and civilization is quite surprising.

 ITINERARY  
 What they said 

"Early morning mist lifted quickly and the first snowy peaks appeared. We set off early and rested near the river before the steep ascent onto the terrace above the Kama valley and into the Kangshung valley, where we were to trek. The meadow floor was carpeted with flowers, with dewdrops glistening in the bright morning sun. The sun's reflection on the river, the array of colours, the snowy peaks in the background, these were experiences I shall never forget." 
 
- Says Edwin Gruber who organized his trek with us on June 2003.

EXCLUSIVE NEXT : ADVANCED EVEREST BASE CAMP (THE NORTH FACE OF EVEREST)::

 
Indeed without doubt, a highlight of this trip is the visit to Everest Base Camp, and the trek to camp 3 at 6340m., where the sheer grandeur of Everest's north face you have to see to believe. This trek takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go. This adventure, the highest trek in the world, is an incredible journey to camp 3 and the base of the North Col via the East Rongbuk Glacier. Nowhere else on this planet can you hike on trail to such a high elevation by simple trekking..

Yet again we will explore the great valleys around the Everest. more... (exclusive)
