Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek
Is a striking journey that sums up the beauty of both 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.
Rolwaling valley is one of the hidden gorges, which is burrowed in between picturesque and grandiose mountains. Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek begins with a drive to Gonggar via Dolakha from where we pass villages like Simigaon, Bedding, and Na Gaon with an amazing view of Mount Gaurishankar (7134m). In Na Gaon, we explore the Yalung Glacier and climb on the training peak of Ramdung Go (5930m). Leaving Na Gaon, we climb uphill to Tsho Rolpa Lake (4540m), the largest glacial Lake in Nepal. Then, waking on slippery glaciers, the trail reaches Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m), which separates the Rolwaling region from the Khumbu region and the Gaurishankar Conservation Area from the Sagarmatha National Park. The trail then joins the trekking trails of the Khumbu region, which is ever bustling with tourists from inside and outside the country. Enjoying the view of Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8201m), and other mountain peaks of the Khumbu region, the trail heads down to the bustling Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar via Thame and leads to Lukla, from where a flight back to Kathmandu is taken. Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is an amazing opportunity to observe the different facets of the Himalayan lifestyle as it goes from a remote to a rather urban route of the Himalayas.
