The Everest Kangshung Face tour is a trekking tour that takes 22 days taking you through Kathmandu, Shegar, Gyantse, Rongphu and 7 other destinations in Nepal and China. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

An adventure tour combining our ‘High Road to Lhasa' with an exhilarating trek to the Kangshung Face of Everest. This expedition includes the highlights of our ‘High Road to Lhasa' journey, including time in Lhasa, Gyantse, and Shigatse, with a 9 day trek in the Kharta valley to the spectacular Kangshung Face of Everest. After a few days sightseeing in Lhasa, we will drive across the Tibetan plateau with ample opportunities to absorb the traditional culture of Tibet, before arriving in Kharta, a bustling Tibetan village nestled in the shadow of Everest. Our trek to the east face of Everest offers extraordinary views of the world's highest mountain. After the trek we drive to the Rongphu Valley to appreciate the huge dimensions of the north face of Everest before heading back to Lhasa and Kathmandu via the stunning region of Langtang.

“Our journey through Tibet with World Expeditions was awesome. A blend of overland travel and trekking took us from Lhasa to the foothills of Everest. Our guides Bir Singh and Tashi and our support crew were marvelous. They were attentive to our needs and knowledgeable about the local culture, natural history and geography of the region.”

“Our leader Bir Singh, and our guide Tashi were very professional and caring. Bir Singh has an amazing ability to read his clients, thereby, meeting all their varying needs, not an easy task. He managed our group so well during adverse weather conditions and at times when two members of our group had traveller's diarrhea and some altitude sickness. I felt confident that he could lead us through our trek. His manner fostered trust in his leadership. WE is very fortunate to have Bir Singh as a leader. I would highly recommend a WE trek, especially if Bir Singh is the leader.”
