Khangsung Face of Everest Trek-Tibet Everest trekking 2016
The valley of Khangsung is a place to allure the trekkers with its grassland and an enchanting bosom of flowers. The trek to Kharta in summer provides an outstanding view of greenery. The Khangsung Valley trek is lead through the Langma La Pass at an altitude of 5320m-the highest pass on the way. The high elevation of all peaks on the way in its full capturing motion is only and alone the Mt. Makalu.
To explore this awesome trek, we can begin our tour with Lhasa or Tibet/Nepal border Zhangmu. We begin our trek from Kharta Town (or Dampu, a new road was open in 2014) in a way like the one a white crane looks at the time to pounce upon its prey. After an interval of our driving, we lead our trek to Lundrubling and the Kaamo Tsangpo Valley through Shao La. Further we lead the way to Khangsung Valley the next day and Pethang Ringmo. Our trekking comprises Hoppo, Kangshung base camp and then the base of Langma La. After all, we return to our destination Lundrubling through Langma. The next day we trek to Kharta and finally drive to Rongbuk Everest Base Camp.
