Rolwaling Valley Trek

Overview and Highlights

The Rolwaling Valley Trek takes you through the Rolwaling Valley, one of the most remote valleys in Nepal. The villages of this valley are quite remote ones and less touched by trekkers. However, trekking through this region provides a magnificent experience of trekking in one of the remote regions if you have never experienced before.

The Rolwaling Valley provides great views of the mountain peaks around, rich flora and fauna and the traditional cultural heritages. Previous walking experience and a special permit for trekking is required for exploring in this area. As you go through this trekking route, you pass through a great Gompa known as the Bigu Gompa. More than 300 nuns reside in this Gompa. Other prime attractions of the Rolwaling Valley are views of Gaurishankar, [7,145m], Melungtse [7,181m], and villages like Beding [3,690m], Na [4,183m], Tso Rolpa Lake and several others.

The Rolwaling Himal lies west to the Everest near the Tibetian border. This site offers incredible views to the trekkers. The Rolwaling Valley Trek begins from Barabise. After leaving Barabise, we pass through Tingsang La Pass and further descend until we reach the Bigu Gompa. Walking through the banks of Bhote Koshi River finally we reach the Rolwaling Valley. This valley is one of the most remote valleys but provides wonderful views of natural beauties and a little of cultural heritages.

From Kathmandu, we head out to the Friendship Highway [Kathmandu – Lhasa]. While in the highway, we take another route to Jiri at a junction in Lamosangu. Hours later, we arrive in Dolakha , from where we drive further to Shigati and then finally trek to Suri Dovan where we stay overnight

We trek along the banks of a river and follow the trail through the flat land. We come across various land formations such as rivers, streams and even forests. We cross a suspension bridge and trek further to Jagat. Stay overnight in Jagatr

We follow the path along the bank of the river and cross a suspension bridge at the end of the day that takes us to Simi Gaon. Stay overnight in Simi Gaon

The path is constant at the initial stage but later we experience a few ups and downs. Continuing our walk through the deep valley, we come across a river; one of the tributaries of Gauri Shankar. We then come to place of Sherpa settlements on the bank of the river. Overnight in Kharka

We go through various forests of oak and rhododendron. We continue our walk through the banks of Rolwaling River. Entering a flat terrain after a couple of hours of trek, we decide to spend our night here in Beding

We still get attached to the banks of this river and realize that the river has been quite familiar to us by now. We cross the pristine village of Beding and continue our walk through the cultivated fields of wheat and rice. We then come across a holy monastery of Buddhist and finally arrive at the village of Na. Stay overnight

The initial stage of the path is flattened but later gains elevation gradually. We get blessed by the first views of the Himalaya Lake filled by fresh water of the Himalaya glaciers. Watching these beauties around, we arrive at Tso Rolpa Lake to stay overnight

With an early breakfast, we head towards the Trakarding Glacier and walk past through it. The rocky path comprises of altitude fluctuation that might delay our speed of trekking. We camp overnight by the laps of this beautiful glacier

We make a steep climb to the higher regions and avoid the lower regions now. We experience some difficulties at a section that is all filled with rocky formations. As we cross it and make our move, we get surrounded by superb views of mountain peaks that pleases your heart. We spend our night at Tashi Lapcha Base Camp

This beautiful pass makes it uncontrollable to resist the urge of taking pictures. However, with pain and vain in the heart, we cross the pass and head to the other side

We make a climb again through the body of outstanding Pachermo. The snowy land takes us to the final ridge, where may be we will required use of the fixed ropes. From a viewpoint in Pachermo, we get lost in incomparable views of the Khumbu peaks including Everest, Makalu and several others. We spend our night in Thengpo

We spend this valuable day with rest. Acclimatization is very important in certain intervals of days. This idea prevents us from getting victimized by Acute Altitude Sickness that can cause serious problems to our health.

After enough rest and acclimatization, most probably we have restored our level of energy and stamina to help fight against the altitude. However, the path today is a bit easier and is likelier to soothe the desire of watching beautiful geographical formations

It’s a long way down to Namche Bazaar. We descend down and make a steep climb at a section. We then experience some of the ups and downs through the path that ultimately takes us to Namche Bazaar. Teahouse overnight

This is the climax of our Rolwaling Valley Trek. We steeply descend down through the cold land trying to freeze our shoes. With enough speed, we arrive in Lukla at expected time where we stay our night in a teahouse

The trip is over now. However, we can plan another trip the very next day or wish to visit the country if any chance favour. We take off from the Lukla airstrip and make a short scenic flight to Kathmandu
