Kangshung Trek



Kangshung trek allows you to approach the Everest by following a more remote and different route, rather than the busier routes used more commonly today. It is fascinating to think that actually there are four main approaches to Everest. From the Nepal side on the world-famous route used in 1953, starting at the Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar. Secondly the approach from the north up the Rongbuk Glacier, thirdly via the East Rongbuk Glacier and lastly the approach up to the Kangshung Face. This is the least used approach and the only reason for this is that it is tucked away in one of the remotest corners of central Tibet . The scenery is no less awe-inspiring and the route has all the advantages of not being popular.
