The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek (5755m) is a less traveled adventure that combines the remote Rolwaling Valley ((Gaurishankar) and Khumbu regions of Nepal in one package. You can take in the spectacles of Melungtse (7181m) and Melungtse II (7023m) inside Tibet and Gaurishankar (7134m) on the border of Nepal. Besides these giant peaks, there are 50 others over some 6000m extending from the Nangpa La Pass where the Mahalangur section begins southwest to the Tamaki River. Trek through Sherpa villages, such as Tasi Nam, Simigau, and being located in the Rolwaling Valley and get to understand their culture and traditions – and of course feel their warmth and hospitality. The Sherpa people have a smile that is contagious! Trekkers can reach Everest Base Camp by crossing Tashi Lapcha Pass or by a direct flight to Lukla. The Rolwaling Valley is a valley (within the Gaurishankar Conservation Area) that traverses from east to west just below Mt. Gaurishankar (7145m) slightly south of the border. Due to its depth, it is often cloaked in cloud adding to its mystical and eerie appearance.
On this trek, you will be in awe of numerous peaks, such as Mt. Gaurishankar, Dorje Lakpa & Mount Everest. You will also see Tsho Rolpa Lake, one of the largest glacial lakes in Nepal located at an altitude of 4580 meters in the Rolwaling Valley.
This is a more physically demanding trek due to the high altitudes, particularly trekking through Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m). The remoteness of the Rolwaling Valley will bewilder you and the quiet will calm you! This area is also the home to the fabled Yeti, an elusive creature that supposedly with human characteristics!
The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek starts with a drive to Shigatse Village (3800m) and then the trail passes the villages of Jagat, Simigaun (3520m), Donga, Beding and Na where the valley opens up. Another interesting and remote location is a trek to Yalung Base Camp an isolated and remote location. After leaving Na Village we ascend to Tsho Rolpa Glacial Lake and then to the Rolwaling Glacier ice field. From here we climb to Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m) and amazing panoramic views of the surrounding mountains before descending on the trail to Namche Bazaar via Thame and then to Lukla where we catch our scenic flight back to Kathmandu.
The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek will test your fitness, hence the necessity to prepare beforehand which will make this, not just less physically demanding, but more enjoyable. The Sherpa Expedition and Trekking team will help you prepare for this out of the way journey into the forgotten regions of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area.

The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - in Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.
Tashi Lapcha Pass is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
