The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trek goes through the Gauri Shankar Conservation Area and the Sagarmatha National Park, linking the Rolwaling Valley with the Everest region.

This trek will visit the beautiful Tso Rolpa Lake (4183 m), summit the Tashi Lapcha Pass (5682 m), visit Namche Bazaar, and offers superb breathtaking views of Gauri Shankar and Everest, and many other mountains. The Tashi Lapcha Pass is perhaps the most difficult in this region, so a high level of fitness and stamina is required.

This is reportedly one of the possible routes that people from Kham in Tibet used during the mid-1800’s. These people subsequently settled in this area and the Everest region and are now known as Sherpa. Therefore, this trek also has historical and cultural significance. After crossing the pass and coming into the Everest region, there are glorious views of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. And once reaching the bustling market town of Namche Bazaar there is an opportunity to interact with other trekking and climbing groups as well as the Sherpas.

But before that, aside from perhaps spotting a snow partridge or two, and coming across herds of yaks (or more specifically, naks) producing milk for cheese making, don’t forget to look out for the fabled Yeti. It was on the slopes of the Rolwaling Peak that Eric Shipton photographed Yeti footprints in 1951!

This trek certainly combines history and culture with stunning mountain views, and the satisfaction of crossing a high Himalayan pass.
