Earth's Paradise Treks & Expeditions

Just south of Tibetan border, extending east west of the Gauri Shankar Massif (7134 m), Rolwaling trek is one of the really "off-the-beaten-tracks" starting with a drive from Kathmandu to Sigatte village in Dolakha. You walk through traditional villages of Indo-Aryan/Tibeto-Bermese people, dense rhododendron and silver birch forests along Tama Koshi and Rolwaling valleys with the majestic view of Gauri Shankar Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Ramdong Go, Chobutse and Melungtse as well as beautiful valleys of Tama Koshi, Rolwaling and Thame.

This trek also offers a short climbs to Ramdong Go (5930m) and Pharchamoro (6187m). This trek starts with easy gentle walk from Tama Koshi valley to rugged trail strenuous walk in Tashi Lapcha Pass. If you prefer to climb Pachermo Peak 6200m then you need climbing gears.

On the way to Tashi Lapcha, sacred mountain Gauri Shankar Himal overlooking to Tsho Rolpa; one of the biggest glacial Lakes in Nepal is really beautiful with delightful view of Royal Holy Mountain Gaurishankar, Langtang Himal and Everest range. The lake has increased obviously over decades due to glacial melting in the Gauri Shankar Himalaya range and it may burst any time through its unstable dam, and the villagers residing along Tamakoshi River fed by this lake have life threatening challenge. Many earth scientists have focused their research studies here and number of trekkers is also increasing year by year. People who have climbing technical skill and pre-hiking experience in high altitude about 5900m can make this trip.
