Rollwaling Valley Trekking Overview
Rollwaling valley trekking is one of the less touristic and adventure filled trekking in Nepal. Langtang Himalayan range to the west side and Everest region to the east side can be seen while trekking. Rollwaling trekking (Tashi Lapcha Pass 5755m) is considered as a difficult trek in Nepal. There is some probability that some rocks might fall from the top of the mountain near by the pass. The trekking starts after a jeep ride to Gogger Bazar 1430m and hike to Tashi Lapcha Pass.
The trail will pass through the glacier lake, Tso Ropla which is one of the endangered lake in Nepal. After crossing the Tashi Lapcha pass, the trail will combine the regular Everest Base Camp trail. En route, there are limited lodge facilities to Rollwaling valley trekking for accommodation and food. The room and meal is very basic compare to Annapurna region and Everest region. There is no electricity to the upper villages. The Sherpa people along the route are very kind and nice.
The trekking remains open round the year but the deep winter would be very difficult with snow and ice. You are strongly advised to have an experience with snow and ice before going trekking. You have to be well equipped with mountaineering gears to cross the pass with a experienced mountain guide.
If you choose lodge based trek, still you have to prepare a full camping for at least few days near the pass. If you are mountain climber, you can try to summit pachermo Peak 6272m.
