Trip Code: TKS
Kangshung Valley, named after the glacier, is one of the most remote trekking destinations in central Tibet. The trail leads us across remote tiny pristine valleys dotted with beautiful lakes, alpine grazing pastures, and flowered meadows, with an excellent camping spot. While trekking we will enjoy stunning views of Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Kangchenjunga and Mt. Everest Kangshung face. We begin Kangshung Valley Trek with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa in Tibet, a sacred land of myths and mysteries. We spend 2 nights in Lhasa acclimatizing and exploring the sights and sounds of Lhasa city locked away in its mountains region.
After 2 days’ stay in Lhasa, we continue our trip overland to Kharta village via Gyantse and Shigatse to begin our trek. From Kharta village we head for Lhundrubling, cross Shao La (4970m), explore the forested Karma Valley & trek to the base camp at Pethang Ringmo. Then, we keep going exploring Kangshung Valley, Kangshung Base Camp (5090m) and other remote area places of Tibet. From a high ridge point above the Pethang camp, we enjoy stunning views of the Kangshung Face of Everest. The Kangshung Valley roars with the summer monsoon, the snow that accumulates daily on the peaks starts rumbling at noon and continues to fall noisily throughout the most nights.
On completion of the Kangshung Valley Trek at Kharta, we drive to Shegar and hike Rongbuk valley for views of the north face of Everest and visit Rongbuk Monastery. We explore Everest Base Camp and follow the same route until we reach Lhasa. From Lhasa, we catch a flight back to Kathmandu or continue our journey to the mainland cities in China.
