Everest North & East Face

Trek to the north & east face of Everest, or the Kangshung Face, is one of the most spectacular in the world. Even though this trek requires some stamina it is definitely worth doing. We find some of the grandest Himalayan sceneries on this spectacular walk, which takes us along steep-sided valleys and glacial lakes. In the summer the magnificent grassland flowers are in bloom in the remote Kangshung valley, which is also called the Valley of Flowers.

The highest point on this trek is the Langma La Pass [5,320 metres], which offers outstanding views on a clear day. Towards the South we see Makalu, which dwarfs all the other peaks from this angle, including Everest. From here we Smarvel at the big trio in the far west of the Kangshung valley - Lhotse Shar, Lhotse and Mount Everest. The valleys and ridges below the snowline are richly covered with grass and thick vegetation nurtured by the monsoon rain that manages to sneak behind these mountains. Before we fly back to Kathmandu we spend a couple of days in Lhasa exploring the heart and soul of Tibet and object of devout pilgrimage.
