Overview

The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trek is one of Nepal’s lesser-known Himalayan itineraries. Tashi Lapcha Pass connects Rolwaling Valley with Khumbu Valley (5,755 m). In other words, this walk will take you from Yeti Land to Mount Everest Land.

It runs from Gaurishankar Conservation Area Project to Sagarmatha National Park, with a stop in between. During this tour, you will be able to see the snow-capped peaks of the Rolwaling Himalayan Range, the Langtang region, and the Everest region. Mt. Gaurishankar will be visible throughout most of the hike (7,134 m). Mt. Gaurishankar is the leader of Nepal’s local time. Rolwaling Kang (6664 m), Takargo (6671 m), and Jabou Ri are the other notable summits (6166 m). Similarly, Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201 m) and Pasang Lhamu Chuli (7,350 m) can be spotted during this eccentric walk.

The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trip is a fantastic mix of teahouse and tent hiking in eastern Nepal. Trekking in the Himalayas provides a permanent recollection of the incredible sensation of utter wilderness. The untouched Sherpa, Tamang, and Rai villages of Rolwaling and Everest area are the cultural highlights of this expedition. Local monasteries, chortens, and mani walls are all equally stunning, with artwork of Buddhist civilizations adorning them.

The trekker should be well-prepared for iceberg and ice work, as well as possess a solid understanding of ice handling. The walk to Tashi Lapcha Pass is not only challenging, but also a wilderness adventure.

Instinctually, the more prepared you are, the more enjoyable your journey will be.
