Rolwaling Trekking

  • Trekking in Nepal
  • 21 Days 20 Nights

Rolwaling is a wild and lonely high east/west valley below Gauri Shankar 7145m just south of the Tibetan border with Thame in the Khumbu or Everest region at its eastern end. This is a remote and culturally diverse area occupied by Sherpa, Tamang and Chhetri people Starting from Barabise in the west and passing Tinsang La, the trail descends to Bigu Gompa, a Buddist nunnery and follows the Bhotekosi river before turning into the Rolwaling valley. The route goes to Bedi, the last permanent settlement at 3690m and Na, a summer settlement at 4183m before ascending a grass-covered valley to beautiful Tso Rolpa lake. It then traverses a moraine on the north side of the valley and the snout of the Tram Bau Glacier. Great care must be taken on the glacier and the crossing of the Tesi Lapcha La 5755m into the Khumbu can be difficult. This spectacular route then drops to Thame and follows the Bhote Kosi river to Namche Bazar and on to Lukla for a flight back to Kathmandu.
