The Tashi Lapcha Pass trek is the most challenging trekking trail in the Rolwaling region. The Tashi Lapcha pass provides an experience to guests reflecting the remoteness of parts of Nepal. It is a serious trek for those hoping to enjoy the stupendous mountain vistas of the Himalayas to the full. Gauri Shankar, Jugal Himal, Rolwaling, the Mahalangur range, Choba Bhamare, Pachhermo peak – these are the most noble of the region’s great snowy spires. This trek requires participants to have proven walking experience and physical fitness, because the Tashi Lapcha pass (5755m) is one of the most challenging Himalayan passes.
Access to Rolwaling is via Dolakha and then into the deep furrow of the Rolwaling valley itself, just south of the Tibetan border. We pass through Beding and Na village en route to the high passes and Tso Rolpa Lake. The Rolwaling valley is unique in Nepal in many ways, since its environment is exceptionally rich in biodiversity. Gauri Shankar (7145m) and Menlungtse (7181m) are companions on this rugged journey, which concludes after the pass with a descent via Thame and Namche Bazaar to Lukla and a flight to Kathmandu.
No one should under estimate the dangers of the Tashi Lapcha pass, because of frequent rockfalls on its western side and the route through the icefalls. With global warming, it is becoming technically more and more difficult due to the movement of the glacier. Crossing the Tashi Lapcha pass is much more than a challenging trekking trail; it requires previous trekking and climbing experience – normal walking experience is not enough! The best season for our Tashi Lapcha pass trek is March to May and September to December. If our given itinerary is not suitable for you, we can design another as per your desire and the duration of your holiday.
