Trek on the remote Tibetan trails to reach the east face of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain on earth

Of Everest’s three faces, the east (Kangshung) is one of the most beautiful yet least visited regions in the world. Trekking on this route will get us close to the mighty Everest and Tibet’s historic cities and towns like Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, Rongbuk and Zhangmu. We begin our journey by touring Lhasa’s landmarks like Potala and Norbulingka Palaces, Tibet Traditional Hospital  and Barkhor Bazaar. We also visit Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple in Lhasa. We begin the actual trekking from Kharta and trek towards the Everest Kangshung Face. After admiring the amazing eastern face of the mighty Everest, we trek back to our trekking point, Kharta. From here, we drive to Rongbuk via the Everest Base Camp (north face). In Rongbuk, we visit the Rongbuk Monastery, which is the highest monastery in the world. We continue our drive to Kyirong and end our journey with a drive to Kathmandu. During our journey, we also cross several high passes and are constantly surrounded by the high Himalayan peaks and glaciers which make this trek all the more rewarding.
