This trek requires some stamina but is very worthwhile. It is a spectacular walk along steep-sided valleys and glacial lakes and if the weather allows, some of the grandest Himalayan scenery to be found. In the summer, spectacular grassland flowers are in blooming in the remote Kangshung valley, famed as the valley of flowers. The highest point on this trek is Langma La (5320m). On a clear day the view south from Langma La is outstanding. We see Makalu, which dwarfs all the other peaks from this angle, including Everest. The big trios at the far west end of the Kangshung valley, from left to right, are Lhotse Shar, Lhotse and Mount Everest. The valleys and ridges below the snowline are richly covered with grasses and thick vegetation nurtured by the monsoon rains that manage to sneak behind these mountains. On our way to Lhasa after our trek, we visit Everest Base Camp, where the sheer grandeur of Everest's north face can only believed when you see it. Before we fly back to Kathmandu we spend a couple of days in Lhasa, the heart and soul of Tibet and an object of devout pilgrimage - it is still a city of wonders. The medieval push and shove of crowds, the street performers, the stalls hawking everything from prayer flags to jewel-encrusted yak skulls, and the devout tapping their foreheads to the ground at every step is an exotic brew that few newcomers can resist.
