Tashi Lapcha Pass Trekking

Trip description

Rolwaling himalayan trekking is located in north central Nepal between Langtang and Eeverst region. Mt. Gauri Shankar lies to the same region and Mt. Melungtse (7181m.) is the highest peak of the range. Some 20 Km. northeast of the Rolwaling Himal is Khumbu Himalayan range which houses Mt. Everest, Lothse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu etc. An extraordinary and enjoyable camping- style trekking can be made to the Rolwaling valley crossing the famous Tashi lepta Pass (5800m.). This strenuous trekking is a rewarding experience in terms of cultural exposure and awesome Himalayan views. After several days of walking, crossing the passes and exploring the Tsho Rolpa Lake we enter the Khumbu region. Few days of comparably soft walking in the Khumbu region we trek down to Lukla to board the flight back to Kathmandu.

World tallest Human civilization, Thame Monestery, Khunde Hospital, Close up view of the Cho Oyu inclusive Thamserku, Amadablam, Lhotse and Everest, Great Himalayan panorama with in close distance, Budhism Culture, Rolwaling has a unique environment and is exceptionally rich in bio-diversity which makes this region one of the finest tourist destinations, Excellent views of Makalu, Gauri Shankar and Everest Range, Rolwaling valley and Rolwaling Himal, Tho-Rolpa Lake and verities of wild flowers, views of Parchamo and Rumdung Peak, Unique culture and tradition of Local ethnic people, great hospitality


Trip grading:

This Trekking trip is suitable for any walker looking for more challenging and energetic. It does require any previous trekking or even basic mountaineering experience and also it is not necessary that you must be young and super-strong to do this trekking. If you are healthy and can walk 6 to 6:30 hours daily, you can easily do this trekking. However, daily jugging or walking exercise is useful before you depart. Our program always include rest days and build up gradually, in order to acclimatize to the altitude. On trek, you can go at your own pace, with plenty of stops for resting.

We are experts for the operations trip at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a sound acclimatization program. We created this trekking itinerary to allow for gradual height gain spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude, but for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent will produce minimal effects. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. For all trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters, our guides carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness; they are trained to track symptoms as well as administer medications but we recommend to you to carry medicine by yourself that is beneficial for you.

Travel Insurance

To be sufficiently protected in terms of insurance, you need specialized travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers emergency evacuation, trip injury, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. Our agency Gokyo Treks and Expedition can arrange for the appropriate policy based on your trekking.

Climate and Weather

The climate of Nepal is as varied as its geography. The low-lying Terai has a sub-tropical monsoonal climate. The Himalaya where most of our treks take place, are best in the cool dry season from September to May. The traditional trekking season in Nepal is late September to December, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather. Spring is also a popular time of year with warmer weather and the advantage of seeing spring flowers and rhododendrons in bloom. The visibility is good and days are pleasantly warm, although nights can be cold, and snow is possible above 3,000 meters.
This trekking is likely to have a wide range of temperatures depending on the altitude and the time of day. In the mountains up to 3,500m the nights will be cool, normally around 5 degree C, and during the day temperatures sometimes rise to 25 degree C. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 15 degree C to -10 degree C.

Group Size

We bring together a small group of likeminded people to give them a memorable and insightful travel experience with an invaluable opportunity to interact in a fun-filled environment. Our travel group generally comprises a maximum of 12 members. We need a minimum of 2 participants to run our fixed departure dates. For individualized trips, no minimum or maximum applies. If you would like to travel independently or with your friends, families and colleagues, you are invited to choose any of the trips at your convenient time frame for any number of people.

Responsible trekking

Trek legally. If you trek independently, you are not allowed to take any staff by law. You need for this a Trekking Agency, the sole authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or "independent guides" through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent licence or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent.

Rubbish management For the most proper disposal available, please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest truck-accessible road.

Sanitation Note the pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks - including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles. Nepal is struggling with its rapid Westernization and hasn't yet figured out how to dispose of its waste. Don't contribute to the problem any more than necessary!

After your trek you can give your clothes to the porters' clothing bank which is managed by the KEEP association . This bank is located in the Thamel neighborhood of Kathmandu and provides clothes to the trekking porters.
