Photos of the Trip
The Rolwaling Tashi Lapsa Trek is a very fine but laborious camping style expedition which can be made along the Rolwaling to cross the Tashi Lapcha La (5,755m.) and into the Solu Khumbu. The trek should be accurately equipped for immense snow and ice work, with at least one climbing Sherpa is required. The net result will be satisfying in terms of cultural exposure and visual drama. Although, you may not intend to climb the mountain, a climbing permit will be required for Pachermo( alongside the Tashi Lapcha) to permit entrance to the upper part of the valley beyond the Taso Rolpa. Then we will be at the Tahsi Lapcha pass (5,755m.) in the glaciated center of the Himalayas. This trail gives you you panoramic Himalayan views of Mt. Tengi Ragi Tau(6,943m.) Mt. Dragkar Go (6793m.),Mt. Bishhero Go Shar(6,729m.) and many other high altitude snow peaks. After Tashi Lapsa Pass we will arrive at Khumbu valley/Everest region and home land of the Sherpa’s. Being strenuous trek all the trekkers who wants to do this trek should be physically fit and knowledge in mountaineering. The fee is fully refundable upon return back to Kathmandu when you declare that every bit of kit you took into the area has been brought out with you. You will require trekking permit for the Everest National Park for the return part of the journey. Success Treks.
