Trip Overview

Rolwaling Tasi Lapcha Pass trek, after nine day hike starting from Sangati (920m). Trekking all the way to Daldung La is fairly easy trek; after you cross Daldung La you are entred in upper part of Rolwaling Valley. Trek to Upper Rolwaling you climb down for four or five hours on a really adventurous path through the dense rain forest to the Rolwaling River, which you then cross. There you meet up again with the other path, which certainly also has a beautiful landscape, but doesn't snake down to Simigaon quite as spectacularly.

After about 2 1/2 hours walking time up-river you reach the Sherpa village of Beding (3694 m) - the only noteworthy settlement in Rolwaling. If it should happen that the monk belonging to the Gompa is in the village at the moment, you can ask him to show you round it himself, 150 meters higher a rocky hermitage is visible, where Padmasambhava is supposed to have meditated some 1200 years ago.

The last human lodgings of the valley you can find in Na, which is located about three hours' distance from Beding. From here you have an overwhelming view of the mountain-giants Chekigo (6735 m), Bamongo (6400 m), Kang Nachugo (6735 m), and above all, Tsoboje (6689 m). From here we head to Tasi Lapcha, the most difficult pass of this region. Our base camp for Parchamo will be situated near the Tasi Laptcha pass at an altitude of  5755m.  While acclimatizing, we will establish our high camp from there.

We will leave base camp mid-morning to climb to a per-prepared high camp at about 4850 m.  After our ascent is completed the group will cross the Rolwaling Tasi Lapcha Pass into the Khumbu region and proceed on to Lukla.

We will fly out from Lukla at 2840m, back to Kathmandu.  Lukla is a small STOL (Short Take off & Landing) airfield close to the mountains. The flight from Lukla is “interesting” to say the least, and probably one of the most spectacular flights in the world. Trekkers carry only daypack and walk at their own pace.

Average hiking per day will be 6-7 hrs.
