Upper Rolwaling Trekking lies in the eastern part of Nepal. This is a moderate type of trek with the glorious view over the mountain. Rolwaling valley trek provides an experience the remoteness of this region, romantic mountain views, diverse flora and fauna and rich local Buddhist cultures. Rolwaling valley trek requires a good walking experience and a good physical form. There is a Great nunnery Gompa called Bigu Gompa. In Sherpa Language Biku means "Seed". Our program is fully planned and supported by a Nepal Trek Adventures team of crew members, including guides, kitchen staff, and other support crew members as part of the standard program. We begin our journey with a scenic drive by road from Kathmandu to Lhasa to the ancient trading city Dolakha.
Then we trek through the Rolwaling valley, famous as one of the seven hidden valleys of the Himalayas, pass the beautiful Sherpa and Tamang villages. Rolwaling is the east-west valley below the Gauri Shankar (7135 m) near the Tibetan border. Beding and Na are the last Sherpa villages of the Rolwaling Valley. We cross the Tashi (Tesi) Lapcha Pass (5755 m) and then descend to the Khumbu Valley by visiting Thame, Tenzin Norgay's hometown. Continuing along the Sherpa headquarters of Namche Bazar and then to Lukla, we fly to Kathmandu from Lukla.
Upper Rolwaling Trekking west of the Khumbu, directly on the Tibetan frontier there is a wild, lonely high valley the " Upper Rolwaling" which is called simply "the grave" by the indigenous Sherpa's on account of its location - buried down between steep ice-giants. Many mysterious stories have been passed on about this valley. Through which the forefathers of the present-day Sherpa's once came. It is here that the notorious and celebrated Yeti is supposed to make his home.
Before I left for Nepal, someone told me that I would go back again and again. I now know why, thanks to the crew of Nepal Trek Adventure, who are very knowledgeable, experienced and fun to be with throughout our entire trip in Nepal. All our logistic arrangement from transport to accommodation were very well-arranged. We are impressed by the knowledge and experience of our guide and his team who is always eager to share useful climbing tips, anecdotes of local culture and history of the villages and monastries that are along the way. I would certainly use them again in my next trip. They are highly recommended
