Overview

The Rolwaling Valley lies in the east-central part of Nepal alongside the Tibetan border - buried down amid steep ice giants laying within Langtang and Everest ranges. 

Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is a unique trek destination of the Khumbu region that takes you through a snowy path with changing landscape offering many surprises.

The route to this trek connects Khumbu to Rolwaling, thus making it an excellent opportunity to explore all that the highlands of Nepal.

The amalgam views of the snow-capped mountain peak that you can view but not limited to such as:

  • Jugal Himal
  • Rolwaling Himalayan Range
  • Khumbu Himalayan Range
  • Mount Gauri shanker
  • Pachherno Peak
  • Chobabhamre
  • Everest
  • Nuptse
  • Amadablam
  • Kwangde Ri
  • Kusum Kanguru
  • Kantega
  • Island Peak
  • Bigphera-Go Nup

and glaciers and other jewels of Himalayas. You would encounter small remote villages, diversified cultures and religion, wildlife, architecture and much more, unlike anything you have ever seen before.

This trek is fully dedicated to viewing the picturesque views of exotic nature & the cultural beauty of Nepal. As you pass through, you will realize how beautiful and mysterious it is at the same time. One of the key highlights of this challenging trek is that you can see both the mountain ranges of Everest and Langtang at once.

Locals and people around believe that this valley is home of famous “Himalayan Yeti”, yet to be confirmed!

Unlike other treks of the Everest region, the preferred route is via Jiri or Charikot. It is an unusual location, so you have to follow the less passable paths. The valley has been well preserved as visiting this region requires a restrictive permit access.

You will encounter terraced agricultural plots, grazing yaks and dark, dense forests on the trails as you move forward. As you make your way up to Khumjung via the Tashi Lapcha Pass (over 5700 m), you may feel the complexity and technical how the snowy pass is.

Afterward, venture through less crowded routes of the Khumbu Valley to reach the Namche Bazaar and have a small shopping experience. The trek offers you beautiful landscapes, unique Sherpa culture and tradition, rich flora and fauna, Buddhist stupas and enchanting mountain views.
