Trekking in Nepal

Rolwalling Trek‏

Trip Overview

Rolwaling  trekRolwaling trek is one of the adventurous trek crossing over one of the most exciting passes of the Himalaya, Tashi Lapcha at 5,755 metre high; to enter into Khumbu Valley has made this trek popular to all adventurers for many years since the Rolwaling Valley was opened.

The Rolwaling valley is steep sided and covered in thick forests; therefore the climbs are sheer upright. But this is going to be one of the finest watershed crossings ever made in the entire of Himalaya. One of the highlight of the trip is the camp beside Bigu Gompa, which is an unusual and beautifully situated nunnery. Further walking through the summer pasture lands and narrow valleys that opens up into a wide bowl; give us our first taste of open mountain scenery - totally unique and mystical.

As we leave the Rolwaling Valley after having climbed the highest point of this adventure, we may feel although the trek is only just beginning. Trekking back way we continue down traversing into the Thame Valley and onto Namche Bazaar and then to Lukla for the scenic panoramic flight to Kathmandu and visit some highlights of world heritage sites in Kathmandu.
