Tourcode:ECOT10 Tour: The Khangsung Valley Trek

 

The Khangsung valley trek is designed for experienced hikers, used to camping and roughing it. Though you won't need to carry your gear, but will need to be fit enough to carry your daypack with 2 water bottles, camera, snacks and rain jacket inside. If you already know that high altitude bothers you or you have any type of illness where altitude is a problem, please choose another trip. This is a High Himalayan Journey, trekking through one of the most isolated regions of Tibet, to view a side of Mount Everest rarely seen by many other trekkers and not visible from any other region!

The Tibetan plateau is one of the most isolated regions in the world with four of the world's highest mountains straddling its borders. Our Khangsung Face of Everest trek, is a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel through an area of Tibet rarely visited, and see the Khangsung face of Everest. During the Khangsung valley trek you will follow yak herders' trails and stay in nomad camps, getting right into the culture. This is true adventure without the tourism seen along many trails in other countries. The mountains you'll see during this trek are breathtaking and beautiful, so close you'll feel like you can touch them. If you're looking to do something unbelievable and so awesome you'll be talking about it for the rest of your life, then join us on the Khangsung valley trek which really is an epic adventure.

Your journey will start in the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. Upon arrival everyone will be met by our friendly Nepalese staff and you'll be escorted to the Thamel District, where you'll be checked into one of the many three-star hotels. After check-in you'll be shown around. An early dinner will be planned to get everyone acquainted and to go over the details before the real adventure begins. During your stay in Kathmandu, a guided city tour will be planned and you'll have some free time to shop and check out life in this magical city.

Our journey begins on day three with a sweeping scenic flight from Kathmandu over the majestic Himalayas to the "roof of the world:" Tibet. First we'll drive to the city of Lhasa, Tibet's capital. The next two days and three nights will be spent sightseeing with a visit to the Potala Palace, ancestral home to the Dalai Lama and a monastery of immense stature. Other sights of interest that we will visit are Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Market, and the Drepung and Sera Monasteries. Everyone will have some free time to explore on his or her own while in Lhasa.

As our adventure continues, the next few days will be spent traveling, stopping to visit the cities of Gyantse and Shigatse and monasteries of cultural value, like the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, seat of the Panchen Lama. Finally, after a few days of sightseeing and exploration, we'll start our 17 day trek. Starting in the city of Kharta, we head towards the southern mountains that mark the border with Nepal. Our trek will take us over high mountain passes and towards the Makalu and Everest regions. It is a fully staffed trek, with yaks and yak men carrying our loads. Once our trek is finished, we'll get back on the road and drive into the Rongbuk Valley, home of the Rongbuk Monastery and gateway to the Everest Base Camp on the Tibetan side of Mount Everest. From Rongbuk, the sheer north face of Everest is visible, showing the mountains true grandeur. We will spend a couple days here camping so that we can explore the base camp area.

Once finished with our visit to Rongbuk and Everest Base Camp, we will head toward the border of Tibet and Nepal and on to Kathmandu. There is one full day at our disposal to further explore Kathmandu on our own, go for the souvenir shopping or just relax enjoying the marvelous memories of our odyssey to these magical, mystical Himalayan countries.
