Rolwaling to Khumbu over Yalung and Pacharmo Peaks, 20 days trek/4nights kathmandu total 24 days
Level: Strenuous (max. altitude 6,200 m)
Best months : March-May, Sep-Nov
An extremely challenging trip, the Rolwaling-Khumbu trek nevertheless offers one of the most magical mountain experiences possible. The traditional Rolwaling Sherpa culture offers monasteries and hardy high-altitude villages and premanent settlements, all untouched by touristic excesses. The landscape itself is truly otherworldly. You go from barley and potato fields and yak pastures to the glacial lake of Tso Rolpa lake (4,550 m), all shades of blue from cerulean to aqua to turquoise, that many say is the highest lake in the world. The dominant point in the landscape, north by the border with Tibet, are the twin-headed Gauri Shankar (7,134 m), and Melungtse (7,181 m) in a veritable sea of other 6,000ers. For most people the opportunity to trek up a high altitude glacier, Trolambau (ALT) will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The trek itself calls for a high level of fitness, ease with extreme mountain conditions and the skills required in them, and the ability to understand and identify the effects of altitude; the Tashi Lapcha pass is very high (5,755 m), and there are two glacier walks.
