The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trekking

One of the most challenging treks of Nepal, Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trek locates in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The trekking trail lets you delve into the west part of the Everest Khumbu Region. Dwelling through the Tibetan border, there is a natural and high gorge the “Rolwaling” which is also called “the grave” on its explanation of its location by the locals as hidden down between steep ice-giants. This intoxicating and inspiring trek leads you to a faraway destination filled with adventure and the stunning Himalayan views.

Tashi Lapcha requires a special permit for trekking. A moderately strenuous trek with no food and lodging facility to buy on the way makes it a tough one. This riveting trail takes you through Tamang and Chhetri villages including own typical rice fields with magnificent views. During your trek, you will get to see the stunning views of snow clad mountains. An amazing blend of a quiet and eccentric trail of Rolwaling along with the bustling trail of Khumbhu region, the trek is a complete package for the trekking enthusiasts. Moreover, Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trek requires steep climbing skills and a lot of patience to enjoy the journey to the fullest.

Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trek begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Dolakha and further trek towards Ratomate. On our trail, we pass beautiful villages such as Simigaon, Na gaon. Not to mention, the jaw-dropping views of mountain peaks such as Mt. Gaurishanker, Mt. Cho Oyu and the Mt. Everest makes the journey even more exciting. Also, we get to explore the Yalung Glacier and climb on the training peak of Ramdung Go. While leaving Na Gaon, we climb uphill to Tsho Rolpa Lake (4540m), the largest glacial Lake in Nepal. Other attractions of the trek are the Gaurishanker Conservation Area and the Sagarmatha National Park.

All in all, this trek gives you an amazing opportunity to discover the different facets of the Himalayan lifestyle as it goes from a remote to a rather urban route of the Himalayas. Dwelling through many Sherpa villages, where you are heartily welcomed along with warm hospitality makes your journey even more memorable. A tough trek filled with heart-stopping views and thrilling trails is a must for the trekking enthusiasts.
