Rolwaling Tashi Labsta Pass Trek Overview

This 18-day Rolwaling Tashi Labsta Pass trek starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. The journey towards Rolwaling begins as we make our way out of Kathmandu heading towards Gonggar crossing Dolakha en route. After a brief rest, we begin our trek heading towards Simigaon. Gradually ascending through the rocky Himalayan landscapes, the trail takes us towards the Daldung La Pass (3976m) and then to Bedding. In Bedding, you will spend a day acclimatizing and exploring.

The most ideal exploration place would be Menlung La Pass (5616m). From there you get a stunning view of the Rolwaling Himalayan Range including the twin peaks of Gaurishankar (7,134m), Melungtse (7,181m) and Melungtse II (7,203m). Next, you will head towards Na and spend a day there. You will hike to Ramdung Go (5,930m) and Yalung Glacier to acclimatize.

From here on, the trail quickly makes its way over to the glacial lake of Tsho Rolpa and ascends towards Trakarding Glacier. The glacial lake, Tsho Rolpa, is one of the biggest and highest lakes of Nepal. Reflected on its icy shores are the stunning Himalayas in Rolwaling, Everest, and Langtang ranges.

Crossing Tashi Labsta Phedi brings us to the Tashi Labsta Pass (5755m). Beyond the pass lies Tashi Labsta Camp. From the camp, you trek to Namche Bazaar passing Thyangbo and Thame on the way. Once you descend to Lukla from Namche, your trek comes to an end. You will take a flight back to Kathmandu from Lukla. That’s pretty much the Rolwaling trek itinerary.

One of the most remote treks of Nepal especially in the Himalayas, Rolwaling trek needs meticulous planning and knowledge to succeed on the travel. We, here at Nepal Treks, ensure that you get the best treks in Nepal service while you set off for this once in a lifetime adventure.
