Situated between Langtang and Khumbu trek
region, Rolwaling Himal trek region is the place of hundreds
of peaks, lakes, river valleys, forests, fully dominated
by the Tibetan culture and high mountain passes. Rolwaling
Himal is the another name of Gauri Shankar Himal that is
very sacred like Ganesh Himal. Shankar is the name of Lord
Shiv, one of the 3 major gods of Hindus and Gauri is the
name of his wife, the goddess of power. Sacred mountains
never open for climbing. Passing the Gauri Shankar Himalaya
denotes the standard time of Nepal. Nepalese time is 5 hour
45 minute faster than GMT. Prior hiking experience in higher
elevation is needed for this trek because the highest pass-Tashi
Lapcha Pass (5793m) lies in the trek route. Very fragile
formation of Tso Rolpo Glacial Lake threatens the people
of Likhu Khola valley that lies on the way. There are some
side trips and trails to come back to Kathmandu instead
of proceeding the journey to the highest pass. There are
trekking peaks like Ramdang peak and Parcharmo peak in the
region. The following itinerary and trek cost is not designed
for the climbing. We organize everything for the climbing
