(Rigorous trekking, 28 Days, Tibet)

Everest has 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 Kyirong. We begin our journey by touring Lhasa’s landmarks like Potala and Norbulingka Palaces, Tibet Museum and Barkhor Bazar. 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 Border 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.

Tibet is the highest plateau in the world and is widely known as ‘The Roof of the World’. Therefore, throughout the journey we will either be driving or trekking in high altitude areas. It should also be understood that there is 50% less oxygen compared to sea level in high altitudes like Tibet and our body needs a few days to acclimatize to this less-oxygen environment.
