Rolwaling Trek and Thso Rolpa Glacier Lake

(for more pictures click Rolwaling...)

Though it neighbors the world famous Khumbu Valley, Rolwaling Valley is explored by very few tourists. The reason is its geographical intricacy which has kept the region’s natural as well as cultural beauty intact. The valley is abundant with alpine lakes, hanging glaciers, moraines, high pastures, waterfalls and imminent view of snowy peaks in the backdrop. En route as we start following the Rolwaling River, the area will be rich in floral and faunal aspect because of fewer intruders. Sherpa’s of Rolwaling enjoys unspoiled culture and practice of rituals comparing to their Khumbu counterpart. As the stay of tourist is controlled in Rolwaling, local youngsters leave home in trekking season to make living by guiding, leading and assisting expeditions and portering in neighboring valley.

The dark narrow valley of Rolwaling opens wide near villages of Beding (3,510m) and Na (4,120m). Here one can easily spend few days exploring Yak pastures and taking side trips to Yalung Base camp. Above Na Gaun, the trail meanders up to a high lake named Thso Rolpa (4540m) and up to the lateral moraines of the Rolwaling glacier below the Rolwaling icefall (5181m). After two days of rugged glacier walking one reaches high Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m). On the other side of the Tashi Lapcha, the trail drops down into Thame village (3790m) on the Khumbu valley. From here trekking down to Lukla, we can fly to Kathmandu.
