Trekking in Rolwaling is one of Nepal’s finest high mountain valleys West of the Khumhu, directly on the Tibetan frontier there is a wild, lonely high valley the “Rolwaling” which is called simply “the grave” by the indigenous Sherpa’s on account of its location – buried down between steep ice-giants. Rolwaling Trekking provides a wonderful option to test your adrenaline rush while trekking in the northern regions of Nepal. Rolwaling trekking combines both uphill hiking experiences and crossing of varying landscapes, which includes crossing of one of the highest passes in the world, Tashi Lapcha Pass (5,755m), to enter the Khumbu (Everest) Valley.

The Rolwaling Trekking journey commences from Kathmandu and reaches as far as Dolakha (near Charikot), about 7 hours from Kathmandu for Rolwaling Trekking. The trail is well defined and used by porters and shepherds going up to the summer kharkas or grazing pastures at Beding. There was a customs check at Jagat where the climbing permit was vaguely inspected. The last habitation is at Na (4180m). From here on in it can and will snow at any time so patience is required) which also invariably aids acclimatization). The Tsho Rolpa is an awesome ice lake held back by terminal moraine. The unmarked route goes along the Trakarding Glacier, and then climbs steeply up onto the Drolambau Glacier. The scenery is tremendous every inch of the way!On the east side of the glacier is a range of mountains well over 6000m. The Teshi Lapcha La goes through these mountains by the footslopes of Patchamo. The descent on the other side is steep and very rough through boulder fields. Sometimes the trail is difficult to find until you reach Thyangbo Kharka, a very lonely dwelling on the route to Thame, and thence on to Namche Bazaar. This marks the end of our long snowcapped journey, and we head back to Lukla for a return flight back to Kathmandu.

Rolwaling Trekking is a combination of strenuous and a breathtaking picturesque trekking experience, into the glacial high passes and varying landscapes. Trekking in this region is unforgettable experience worth trying and believing in you. Create history by venturing out into the wildest of glaciers once in a lifetime.
