The trek from Kharta valley to Kangshung, the eastern face of the Everest, is one of the most magnificent in the world. The entire region from the Kharta to the Kama Valley, extending to the Arun Valley in Nepal, is part of the blessed land of Guru Rinpoche, also known as “Belyul Khebalung” or the Hidden Valley. The region is famous for its untouched wilderness, beautiful lakes and superb views. Here you can admire the views of Mt. Makalu (8463m) and Mt. Karma Changri (6289m), along with the enormous Khangsung glacier hanging from the East face of the Mt. Everest.
We start this trek from the Kharta valley, which is situated 140 kilometer south-east from Xegar. From here we trek ahead to the Khangsung face via the Kamma valley. The Kamma valley offers spectacular views of the rocky giants such as Makalu, Chomo, Lhotse and Mt. Everest itself. The trek is approaching the highest trekking territory on earth, with passes getting up to 6000 meters.
We can start this trek driving from Zhang-mu or flight to Lhasa from Kathmandu or from mainland China. The best time for trekking to the Kharta valley and khangsung face is between May and September.
