In between the vertical sharp ice giants in the western Everest region, there stands a wild, lonely valley with great height, called the Rolwaling valley, and the trek there is called the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek. Known as a home of the Yeti, the Rolwaling Valley Trek is a long strenuous one that even requires a permit to enter.
Though the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha pass trek is deemed inconvenient and alarming, the enchanting forest and charismatic peak views on the way satisfy you. From the cultural and historical Thame and Chettri villages to the standard rice fields and primal rhododendron forests, there is not much that the trek lacks. There are two routes to choose from to do the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha pass trek; Starting from Jiri (1860 m) or Charikot (1850m) does not make a difference in experiencing the region. Places like Chordung Ridge (3698m), Suri (1890m), Gonger (1040m), and so on provide you with a complete Himalayan experience as well as a Sherpa experience.
As you reach the height of Bhotekoshi, passing the village of Simigaon, and a long upward hike, you see the Daldung La(3976m), providing an awestruck view of the Gaurishankar peak. “TashiTesrringma,” known as the seat of the goddess and a guarantor of a long life, is a place that lets you learn about the monk’s way of life and view the famous monasteries.
Starting from a drive to Barbise Bazaar from Kathmandu and walking northeast, the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha pass trek includes glacier walking to reach the Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m). The entire trek can turn your holiday into a lifelong memory.
