Rolwaling trek is one of the adventurous trek crossing over one of the most exciting passes of the Himalaya, Tashi Lapcha at 5,755 metre high; to enter into Khumbu Valley has made this trek popular to all adventurers for many years since the Rolwaling Valley was opened.

The Rolwaling valley is steep sided and covered in thick forests therefore the climbs are sheer upright. But this is going to be one of the finest watershed crossings ever made in the entire of Himalaya. One of the highlight of the trip is the camp beside Bigu Gompa, which is an unusual and beautifully situated nunnery. Further walking through the summer pasture lands and narrow valleys that opens up into a wide bowl; give us our first taste of open mountain scenery - totally unique and mystical.

As we leave the Rolwaling Valley after having climbed the highest point of this adventure, we may feel although the trek is only just beginning. Trekking back way we continue down traversing into the Thame Valley and onto Namche Bazaar and then to Lukla for the scenic panoramic flight to Kathmandu and visit some highlights of world heritage sites in Kathmandu.
All our treks are managed by a team of professionally trained Leader/guide responsible for all aspects of the running of the trek. Our special departure trek is well versed in the culture and natural history of the Himalayas. Your day start with a cup of hot tea served in your room. A member of the trekking staff followed by a bowl of hot washing water, after which you will be required to pack your luggage and the porters loaded whilst we are having breakfast. After breakfast we set off on the trail, enjoying the pleasant cool of the morning. Your day's trek involves navigating numerous picturesque forests, hills, mountains and the local villages for the next three hours. Around mid-day we usually stop for a pleasant spot along the way for lunch. Your midday lunch break usually lasts around an hour and is a time to relax, pop the boots off and air those feet! Plenty of time is allowed for photograph in the route. After lunch you'll walk another three hours or so, before you stop for the night. You have enough time to change, freshen up, before exploring an area.
Each evening is spent as per your interest for reading or chatting with the fellow trekkers and crew members or a pack of cards is an advantage; the crew love teaching various Nepali card games and learning new Western games. Our porters and Sherpa's also like to have singing and dancing competitions in which they love you to join in! Finally, it's off to bed for a well deserved night's rest before you start it all again.
