Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trekking
Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha pass trekking leads us through one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Nepal, past picturesque Sherpa, Tamang and Chhetri villages with their typical terraced fields, through dense, gloomy primeval forests and overbroad ridges with wonderful views.
Rolwaling Trek via Tashi Lapcha Pass is the adventurous trip that crosses one of the most exciting passes of the Nepal Himalaya, Tashi Lapcha at 5,755 meter high; to enter into Khumbu Valley has made this trek popular to all adventurers for many years since the Rolwaling Valley was opened. The Rolwaling valley is steep-sided and covered in thick forests; therefore the climbs are sheer upright. But this is going to be one of the finest watershed crossings ever made in the entire Himalaya. One of the highlights of the trip is the camp beside Bigu Gompa, which is an unusual and beautifully situated nunnery. Further walking through the summer pasture lands and narrow valleys that opens up into a wide bowl; give us our first taste of open mountain scenery - totally unique and mystical.
As we leave the Rolwaling Valley after having climbed the highest point of this adventure, we may feel although the trek is only just beginning. Trekking back way we continue down traversing into the Thame Valley and onto Namche Bazaar and then to Lukla for the scenic panoramic flight to Kathmandu and visit some highlights of world heritage sites in Kathmandu.
- Explore and enjoy the picturesque Sherpa and Tamang villages with their typical terraced fields, through dense, gloomy primeval forests and overbroad ridges with wonderful views.
