To begin this trek, we drive from Kathmandu to Kharta Qu – a Tibetan town situated by the Phu Chu river near the Rongbuk side of Mt. Everest base camp.  From Karta Qu, the direct route to Kangshung base camp is via Langma La pass (17700ft./5240m.).  However, in order to get well acclimatized during the trek, we choose the slightly longer alternative route over the Shau-La pass ( 15700ft./4790m.) – which is a lower pass to the SE of Langma La.  After the crossing of Shau-La pass, enter the Karma Tsangpo Valley and then into the Kangshung Valley to arrive at the Kangshung base camp of the East Face of Mt.
