Trek The Lho La- Everest's West Side

Trek The Lho La- Everest's West Side

Trekking to the Lho La is a high altitude trek to the crest of the Lho La, a pass, located in Khumbu region on the remote border of Tibet and Nepal. Due to its historical significance, unknown to many visitors and an attractive and pristine nature, the destination is more achievable goal beside the top of Everest.

The journey to Lho-La begins with an acclimatization phase in Lhasa just after flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa. During acclimatization you will be visiting the Potala Palace, the Norbulingka and other Lhasa sites before crossing in 4 x4 vehicles the Tibetan Plateau to the Monasteries and forts of Gyantse, Shigatse and Shegar.
