Days of Completion: 24 days
Max. Altitude of Trial: 5,550 meters
Accommodation Type: Tea House
Package Type: FlyIn – Fly-Out


Located to the west of Solukhumbu is the secluded and rarely visited Rolwaling valley. The upper reaches of the valley are connected to the Solukhumbu by the high and difficult pass of Tashi Lapsta pass. Trekkers contemplating trek that connects Rolwaling with khumbu should always travel from east to west (khumbu to Rolwaling).

The trek, particularly the crossing of Tashi Lapsta pass, is one of the more difficult treks in Nepal and should only be attempted by self-sufficient, strong and experienced parties. Some basic mountaineering skills are required. Staff, particularly porters, must be experienced and from the district. For good acclimatization, a trek to Everest Base Camp or Gokyo, prior to crossing over to Rolwaling, is an excellent idea. The route to Tashi Lapsta pass starts at Thame.it takes two nights to reach Tashi Lapsta pass which, ideally, should be crossed early in the day to avoid rock fall from the slopes above. The pass is usually ice covered and porters carrying large loads will need assistance. If camping at the peaks, be careful to choose a campsite that is well away from the rock fall area.
