Khangshung Bc & Rongphuck

Experience the ultimate in trekking adventure, taking the trail to the world’s highest trek. This big Himalayan trek, one of the best Tibetan treks, offers extraordinary views of Makalu, Lhotse and Everest, three of the most impressive Himalayan 8000 m.

It starts by a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa passing right over Mount Everest. During two days in Lhasa we have plenty time to visit Potala Palace and Drepung and Sera monasteries. Then by 4WD we drive to Kharta Valley through Gyantse and Shigatse.

During two weeks, this trek takes you to the rarely visited eastern face of Mount Everest through remote typical Tibetan agricultural villages, glacial lakes in which summits gleam and at the bottom of majestic Everest East and North faces. The broad grassy plateau in Pethang Ringmo towered by Everest, Lhotse and Makalu, is one of the best camp sites, only 5 km away from the Khangshung base camp. From Rongphuck and its monastery, the trek leads to Everest western base camp. By 4wd through the broad plateau of Tingri with Himalayan Range in the background we descend to the border to find back terraced fields and villages of Nepal.
