Tibet Everest Kangshung Face Trekking

everest-khangshung-face-trekking

The Tibet Everest Kangshung Face Trekking is the East Face of Mount Everest, one of the Tibetan sides of the mountain. It is 3,350 meters (11,000 ft) from its base on the Kangshung Glacier to the summit.

It is a broad face, topped on the right (when seen from below) by the upper Northeast Ridge, and on the left by the Southeast Ridge and the South Col.

Most of the upper part of the face is composed of hanging glaciers, while the lower part consists of steep rock buttresses with couloirs between them. It is considered to be a dangerous route of ascent, compared to the standard North Col and South Col routes, and it is the most remote face of the mountain, with a longer approach.
