Rolwaling is the east-west valley below Gauri Shankar (7145m), just south of the Tibetan border. This is an isolated and culturally diverse area, but most treks conclude their visit to Rolwaling by crossing the Tesi Lapcha Pass (5755m) into Khumbu. The Rolwaling Himal is a quiet mountainous region rarely visited by tourists or trekkers, making it possible for one to savor the wild Himalaya along this route. It is possible to add routes to Manlung La and Omai Tsho as well for a prolonged experience in this wonderful region. It is possible to also add one of the trekking peaks in the region to your trip, with the appropriate permits, for those who want a bird’s eye view of the region. This is real great adventure in the wild out backs.
