kharta valley trek

The highest of the great mountains of the world seems to require single gesture of mastery in order to establish as the queen of them all, immense in its solitary and unrivalled supremacy. The remarkable spectacles offered by the icy mass of Everest, which loom over the desert highlands of Tibet are as enchanting today as they did since centuries.

Exploring the Kharta Valley was how Mallory's 1921 Everest Reconnaissance Expedition eventually realized how to climb Everest. They trekked from Sikkim, instead we drive to the last villages, beginning in the dry Kharta Valley and climb into lush scrub camping by alpine lakes. Over the first pass the panoramas open up, HUGE mountains litter the horizon. More pleasant trekking brings us to in your face Everest views and we actually stay at the normal Everest Base Camp as well as visiting Dza Rongphu (Rongbuk) Gompa.
