First, a few days of sightseeing in Lhasa includes the Potala Palace, Jokhang, Sera and Drepung Monasteries. We spend an entire day at Ganden Monastery. In Gyantse and Shigatse, we will visit the Khumbum Monastery, the former seat of the Panchen Lamas. On the 8th day, we begin our trekking to the east Everest Base Camp, the Kangshung Valley. The Kangshung Valley is overtaken with the summer monsoon. The snow that accumulates daily on the peaks start rumbling around noon and continues to fall throughout the night in many cases. The reward is an amazing array of coutural experiences along this far removed trek. We retrace to Yuba via the Langma La Pass and the Kharta river, from Yuba we drive to Zhangmu, the Tibetan border into Nepal.
