The 17 Days Kharta Valley Trek is for the real adventurers. Our tour takes you on a spectacular walk to Everest east base camp (Khangsung face). You will encounter numerous world famous Himalayan peaks, including Everest, Makalu, Cho oyu, Menlungtse, Gauri Shankar and the Kanchenjunga Massif. You will also explore various cultural and natural wonders that Tibet offers, such as wildlife, glacier, high mountain passes, traditional Tibetan villages, ancient monasteries, rich barley fields, and picturesque yak pastures, etc. The highest point on this trek is Langma La at 5320m.
