  • Description

Rolwaling Trekking with Daldung La Pass is one place to blow your mind to bliss. This taxing trail sees very few footprints and winds through the far-flung, virgin territory of Rolwaling. The mountain vistas and village landscapes, shared with cultural gaiety and rural lifestyles integrate into discoveries that are simply unforgettable…for any length of time. The Rolwaling valley trek is something akin to nature’s gem that sits between the lovely Langtang Region of Kathmandu and the ever well-known Everest Region to the east. Numerous airy suspension bridges across gorges help cut down the climbs. Brilliant peak views could be had from the high alpine section of Daldung La pass at (3900m) including full view of Mt. Gaurishankar.

Our journey starts in the region of Rolwaling which sits south of Tibet. We plod on by Sherpa settlements and thick forests. Sublime vistas of the Mountains give way to Gauri-Shankar at (7145 m/23816 ft) a peak named after the mythical Hindu couple Shiva and Parvati. The Buddhist Sherpas call the mountain Jomo Tsheringma which means five sister goddesses.

One of the major attractions of this entire trip is witnessing the breathtaking beauty of Tsho-Rolpa Glacier Lake, the largest glacial lake in Nepal which is located at an altitude of 4,580m. Crossing Tsho-Rolpa, the dangerous trekking route to Tashi Lapcha pass starts. One should spend 3-4 nights in glacier region. This trekking route is one of the least visited trekking routes in Rolwaling region, Dolakha, Nepal.
