Kharta Valley Trek
Trekking to Kharta Valley is the most gorgeous trek in Tibet, a sacred land of mysteries, as it contains spectacular mountain views, pure unexplored valley, high glacial lakes and alpine flowers, involving high passes. The trek, known as the Everest Khangsung face trek, takes you from the Kharta village to the east face of Everest. Langma La pass is the highest point on this trek, which offers stunningsights of Makalu, Everest and Lhotse. Kharta Valley Trek leads across pastoral and rustic tiny valleys along with beautiful lakes, alpine gazing pastures and flowered meadows.
Kharta valley trek is a quite isolated region that gives you an ultimate high altitude experience. It is famous for its immaculate wilderness, amazing, incredible views of Mt. Makalu, beautiful lakes and breathtaking view of Mt. Karma changrian and so forth. Thebest period for Kharta valley trekking is April to October and May to September. Kharta valley trek leads you to the rarely visited eastern face of Mount Everest Khangsung face. This trek is really adventurous and requires some stamina but it is equally fantastic. From the Langma La pass, incredible panoramic mountain views can be enjoyed with the true sublimity. The traditional Tibetan villages, ancient monasteries, profound barley fields below the snowline ridge, picturesque yak pastures, green lakes, and much more other captivating sights make you pleased.
