Trekking in Rolwaling Valley Region of Nepal

 View  from  Rolwaling Vally

The little known and little visited Rolwaling valley region lies between the Langtang Range and the Everest Range. Trekkers are rewarded with enchanting views of majestic mountain scenery from Mt.Gaurishanker, Rolwaling Himal, Chobabhamre, Dorje Lakpa, Yalung Ri, and Pachharmo Peak. Explore the many hidden valleys, which act as an excellent habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals including many kinds of monkeys, Himalayan thar, gaur, musk deer, himalayan black bear, wild dog, and more than 250 species of birds.

The trekking route is close to the Tibetan border, allowing travelers to experience traditional Tibetan culture. This region is inhabited by Brahmin, Chhetri, Tamang and Sherpa villages, giving trekkers a glimpse into the locals’ lifestyles. It is known as one of the seven hidden valleys in the Himalayas. Rolwaling meaning ‘the furrow left by the plough’ is a quiet mountain and steep-walled valley as its name suggests. Rolwaling trekking provides an excellent opportunity for short climbs to peaks like Ramdong Go peak (5930m), Yalung Pass (5310m) and varied trips to Tashi Lapcha pass (5755m) and Na Gaon. 

This is a wild and barely explored district where legendary tales of the abominable snowman, known as the "Yeti", haunt the imagination of climbers. On the slope of the Rolwaling Peak itself, the famous British mountaineer, Eric Shipton, first photographed Yeti footprints in 1951. Trekkers will also enjoy the beauty of Tsho-Rolpa, the largest Glacier Lake in Nepal and can continue on to the Khumbu region which links to trek routes in the Everest region.
