This challenging yet rewarding trek will lead you through miles of steep valleys, high passes, and gorgeous glacial lakes. Trekkers will be shown some of the most spectacular Himalayan scenery anywhere on earth. Snow-covered mountain peaks will be coupled with astounding flowering valleys in the warmer seasons. The highlight of the trip for many is the remote Kangshung valley, often referred to as the valley of flower.
Lingam La, at a height of 5320 meters, is the highest point we will encounter on this amazing trek. The view from this point on a clear day is unparalleled in its beauty. Dozens of vast snow covered peaks including Makalu, Lhotse Shar, Lhotse and Mount Everest can be seen to the south. Below the snowline of these massive peaks lie valleys and ridges bountifully covered with various grasses and thick vegetation. As many of you have dreamed about for years we will visit the Everest base camp on our way back to Lhasa.
The Sight of Everest’s North Face from below is something which will change your life forever. After trekking for many days we will conclude the trip with a couple of days relaxing and basking in the glory of Lhasa. This ancient city has been the holy center and a site of passionate pilgrimages for hundreds of years. The streets are filled with performers, wondrous markets, and beautiful monasteries. Our visit to Lhasa will allow you to truly experience the Tibetan culture.
