We begin our journey with a scenic drive on the Kathmandu-lhasa highway to the ancient trading town of Dolkha.

Our walking through a scheduled and one of the most beautiful parts of Nepal starts here. We trek through the Rolwaling valley, celebrated as one of the seven hidden valleys in the Himalayan, past beautiful Sherpa and Tamang villages. Rolwaling is the East -West valley below Gauri Shanker (7145m) just south of Tibetan border. Beding and Na is the last Sherpa village of this valley, where more than 20 good Sherpa climbers, have conquered Mt. Everest and numerous other 8000m peaks. We cross over the Tashi Lapcha pass (5755m) and visit Thame, Tenzin Norgay‘s hometown, and enter the Khumbu valley, the land of the Sherpas which lies at the foot of Everest. Great views of Mt. Gauri shanker, Mt. Dorje Lakpa and Mt. Tashi Lapcha all along the trail. This trek also offers a great opportunity for short climbs of peaks like Ramdong Go (5930m) and Pharchamoro (6187m). This trek being strenuous, technical climbing experience and good mountaineering gear are essential.

  1. I completed this trek in 2016 and was amazed by the beauty of this unspoiled region of Nepal….I was almost completely alone on this wild trek.Others I met were mountain climbers going to do peaks.Met only one other group. trekking..Obviously once you get to Namche Bazar,tourists are everywhere.I must say that it was EXtremely rewarding,,but tough..Make sure you are well trained…
