The magnificent Rolwaling Valley is nestled between two striking mountain ranges of Gaurishankar Himal and Rolwaling Himal. The Rolwaling Himal includes Melungtse (7181m) and Melungtse II (7023m) - both of them can be seen from Menlung La - on the Tibetan side, and the Gaurishankar Himal includes Gaurishankar (7134m) on the Nepali side with some additional peaks over 6000m. The Labuche Himal section rises beyond the Tamakosi to the northwest. The first western exploration of the area was made by the British in the 50's during the reconnaissance of Mount Everest. The Rolwaling valley is part of the traditional trading route system with Tibet (through Menlung La), and the higher grazing pastures (Beding and Na) were used by yak convoys en-route to the Indian Subcontinent. Probably, the first Sherpa clans migrated to the Rolwaling valley from Solu-Khumbu some 200-400 years ago, following the salt trading routes. The landscape ranges from Rhododendron and Juniper forests, through high grasslands to high alpine territories. The population in the valley is mainly Sherpa, making the religion Tibetan Buddhism.
Rolwaling valley is less frequented by tourists compared to other parts of Nepal although this is gradually changing, and is an opportunity to get a glimpse of Sherpa communities and villages less effected by mass tourism, and, of course, to get some jaw-dropping views of the Himalayas. To encourage people to go and explore some different parts of this country, and stray a bit off the beaten path. This trek is possible as a completely private small group teahouse/home stay trek. Adventurous Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is famous daring trek in Rolwaling that ends at Lukla in Everest region.
Rolwaling Valley Trek can begin in Bharabise adding 5 more days. This possibility is sometimes referred as the 'classic' route, but with the construction of a road all the way up to Gongar Khola this option becomes somewhat a 'detour', some might say. Wilderness Excursion refers to Singati as the starting point of the trek considering acclimatization. We can shorten the trek by one day starting the trek from Gonggar Khola but consider the some 11 hours long day local bus ride from Kathmandu. For the wild and adventure lovers crossing the Teshi Lapcha La (5755m) into the Solu Khumbu could be ideal one but this trek is not for faint hearted people. One must be properly equipped for extensive snow and ice work, with at least one experienced climber in the party. Even though you may not intend to climb the mountain, a Peak climbing Permit will be required for Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek, generally we take the peak permit of Pachermo (6273m) which is more to the south on the same ridge as Teshi Lapcha.
