Overview

EXPLORE ROLWALING VALLEY WITH TASHI LAPCHA PASS TREK

Trek in Rolwaling Valley south of Tashi Lapcha Pass Nature Adventure Trekking extends east to west of the Gauri Shankar Massif (7134 m) and this trek through the Rolwaling valley is one of the truly "off-the-beaten-tracks". Starting with a drive from Kathmandu to the village of Charikot, it passes through the Rolwaling valley and crosses the Tashi Lapcha to the Khumbu valley. Returning to Kathmandu via the remote mountain airstrip of Lukla. The route can trek in reverse as well.

Rolwaling Valley south of Tashi Lapcha Pass  Trek is a striking journey that sums up the beauty of both the Rolwaling valley and Khumbu region of Nepal. This thrilling and inspiring trek leads you to a faraway location and lets you acknowledge the lovely views of the Himalayas with the difficulties of crossing the high-mountain pass of Tashi Lapcha (5755m). Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is an amazing mixture of the quiet and quaint paths of the remote Rolwaling region with the bustling trails of the Khumbu region. Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek involves steep climbing, lots of patience, and rock climbing, thus, is a thrilling and adventurous journey in the Himalayas.

However, the strain and degree of difficulty are constantly rewarded with visits to remote villages, the magnificence of the omnipresent mountains, and walks through thick Rhododendron forests. On the approach to the Tashi Labtsa pass (5755 m), the northern skyline is constantly dominated by the summit of Mt. Gauri Shankar (7146 m.), for a long time confused with Everest and thought to be the highest mountain in the world. This trek takes you through a demographic cross-section of Nepal that cannot be sampled on any other trek of the Everest region is an adventure of its own kind. In this trail, the Glacial Lake Tsho Rolpa offers the experience of a lifetime.
