Highlights

 
     
    Explore a totally different side of the majestic Himalayas on this 21-day guided trek through the Rolwaling Valley in Nepal.

    Located near the border with Tibet, the Rolwaling Valley is characterized by it’s many small Sherpa villages. As we pass through these remote villages, we will have the chance to interact with friendly locals and experience this age-old mountain culture.

    Our trek will begin in the Tamang foothills and take us upwards toward glacial lakes known in the local language as Tso Rholpa (4100m) and Yalung Ri (5630m). From here, we will continue onward to the Gaurishankar (7130m), a twin-peaked mountain sacred to the people of both Nepal and neighboring Tibet.

    The Gaurishankar is situated approximately 100 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city. The mountain is known for its double summit: “Gauri” in the south, and “Shankar” in the north. It is also worth noting that Nepal Standard Time (GMT+05:45) is based on the location of the mighty Gaurishankar.

    We will advance at a steady pace throughout our journey together, walking between 4 and 7 hours per day. On average, we will ascend between 400 and 900 meters daily.

    Local porters and chefs will accompany us at all times, transporting our gear and preparing hearty local cuisine. You need only carry a lightweight day pack with your trekking essentials and personal items.

    We will sleep in tents during our time together in the Rolwaling Valley.

    This trip is as much about exploring the natural beauty of the Rolwaling Valley as it is about sharing simple, candid moments with good friends old and new. I look forward to sharing this experience with you. Request to book now to get in touch with me.
