About this trip



  • Truly off-the-beaten-track and going in to remote terrain.
  • Follow one of the traditional routes to early Mount Everest expedition groups
  • Extraordinary culture, great people, culture and tradition
  • Famous as the best area to find the Yetis, the legendary mountain gorilla?

Rolwaling valley lies on the original expedition route to Mt. Everest and was only accessible to members of these expeditions.  The trek through the Rolwaling valley is one of the truly "off-the-beaten-track" travel experiences.


This classic trek combined with a climb begins with a drive from Kathmandu to the village of Charikot. Passing through the Rolwaling valley you climb the Parchermo and cross the Tashi Labtsa to the Khumbu valley and from the remote mountain airstrip of Lukla fly back to Kathmandu. The crossing of the Tashi Labtsa can sometimes be quite difficult and there are possibilities of rockfalls from the slopes of Tengi Ragi Rau, while descending to Thangpo.

However, the strain and degree of difficulty are constantly rewarded with visits to remote villages, the magnificence of the omnipresent mountains, and walks through thick Rhododendron forests. On the approach to the Tashi Labtsa, the northern skyline is constantly dominated by the summit of Mt. Gauri Shankar (7146 m.), for a long time confused with Everest and thought to be the highest mountain in the world.  This trek takes you through a demographic cross-section of Nepal that cannot be sampled on any other trek.  Since the reopening of this route, the small Sherpa villages of Bedding and Na are accessible to trekkers who would like to see what the traditional Sherpa culture, untouched by western influence, really looks much different.
