Overview

Rolwaling is a deep Himalayan valley hidden behind the massive snow mountain Gauri Shankar (7134m) and revered by the local Buddhists as a spiritual sanctuary. Rolwaling's name means 'valley carved by a plough,' and its sheer cliffs resemble a plough-shaped furrow. The magnificent trees and scenery are some of the greatest in Nepal. This is a lightly trekked region with more basic facilities. It is a fantastic trek that begins in the beautiful Rolwaling Valley which is northeast of Kathmandu and west of the Everest/Khumbu region.

The Rolwaling trek path takes you on a fascinating journey via pristine glaciers, steep hills and snow-fed lakes. You will have an up-close interaction with the Tamang and Sherpa communities who live in this area. The pathways lead to a centuries-old monastery in Na Gaon, where Buddhist Guru Padma Sam bhava is said to have meditated for a long period, and then to Tsho Rolpa, a famous lake whose calm cannot be conveyed in words.

The starting point of this trek is Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, we will take a jeep ride to Jagat. It   is the starting point for the Rolwaling Valley trek. At Simigaon, you'll be immediately treated with a breathtaking view of Mount Gauri Shankar. We will then trek through the nearby woodland to the Dongang village. The teahouses are right on the banks of the local river. In the valley, Beding and Na Gaon are typical Sherpa communities. A visit to the Beding monastery is worthwhile. You'll spend a couple nights at Na Gaon for some fantastic day hikes. We will acclimate there and then the next day, we will trek to Tsho Rolpa Lake, which is higher up the valley. The views of the enormous Glacier from the lakeside will be breathtaking.

After that, you'll trek back to Simigaon, a charming village passing through Beding and Kyalche. The Rolwaling Valley trek will come to end at this settlement. From Simigaon, you'll trek to Chettchett and catch a bus to return back to Kathmandu, where our journey will officially end.

This grade of journey might take up to two (2) weeks to complete. Trails typically reaches altitudes of above 4000 meters, and you can anticipate to trek for 5 to 7 hours per day. It is the ideal venue for an introduction to Nepal's moderate and demanding trekking. The activity level/physical rating is slightly higher than leisure, and there are some challenging days. Expect some ups and downs, as there will be hills to climb and the well-known ‘Nepali flat', a little up and a little down.
