This trek guides travelers to the unspoiled villages of Himalayas. The journey to Rolwaling Tashi Labste Pass Trekking comparatively challenging and thrilling as it takes to the glacial path and passes over High Mountain pass i.e. Tashi Labste (5755 meters). We can examine the quietness of the Himalayan and magnificent environment together with snow-clad mountains. Further, this region is rich in Sherpa culture and monasteries. 

 

Rolwaling valley is the beautiful gem of Nepal that is situated just between two gigantic mountains. This journey starts with the ride to Gonggar through Dolakha.

We get an opportunity to explore pleasant Glacier Yalung from the Na village. We also hike the training peak Ramdung La (5,665 meters). Afterward, we ascend radiant Tsho Rolpa Lake that lies at the elevation of 4540 meters. Tsho Rolpa Lake is the known largest glacial lake in Nepal. Then trails become quite challenging and difficult as we trek the slippery glaciers to reach Tashi Labste Pass (5,755 meters). The Tashi Labste Pass divides the Rolwaling region and the Gaurishankar Conservation area from Sagarmatha National Park. We trace our trail to the Khumbu region and heads towards Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the biggest residential region of Sherpa and the main village of the whole Himalayas. On our way to Namche, we observe the gigantic top of the world Mt. Everest (8848 meters) and mountains like Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 meters) and others. After having a day stay at Namche Bazaar we move to Lukla and trace back to Kathmandu.

Good to Know

1) Physical Fitness
One should be physically fit  before to do the any trekking and mountaineering. It is long hike so without any training the first two/three days will tough for you. So some basic physical fitness like  squat, Mountain climbers ( which can be done in home),running,biking , stair climbing,and swiming will help lot to do trekking  in the mountains, so it is highly recommanded  2/3 months prior to your departure for the trekking or mountaineering.

(2)Foods and Drinks
While in the mountain,  it is highly recommanded you to drink plenty of fluids like water,soups, teas  as well as foods. We will provide the sufficient and hygiene food as per your choice in whole trek.However some private snacks as chocolates bars, cookies are also highly recommanded which you can take from kathmandu or you can buy on the way in lodges or in shops.

(3)Drinking water
One should drink at least 3-4 litres of water every day in order to get  hydrated the body which helps lot to be away from altitude sickness.You can buy the bottled water all the way  cost from Rs 80 ( Which is equivalent to 80 cents )to Rs 400 (which is equivalent to 4 USD), but the bottled waters are not highly recommanded because as we are environmentally sensitive and also expensive. Whole area except in Gorakshep where drinking waters facility is poor, in that place you have to buy the bottled water in compulsorily. We highly recommend you to carry the reusable water bottle and  buy boiled water in lodges/teahouse which also makes your sleeping bag very warm while going to bed, to use sterpin or take chlorine or iodine tablets  to purify the drinking water.

(4)Best time to Travel
Spring ( Mar-May)and Autumn ( Sep- Nov) are  known as best months to trek in Nepal becuase of the stable clear dry skies which permits to enjoy the spectacular mountain views but mostly lodges, hotels and trails are busy and crowded. Spring season is pleasant and suitable with warm tempreture for trekking and climbing the big mountains as well, so Everest  basecamp will be full of tents and looks like small tented city. Untill end of october, the tempreture will be mild cold. Weather will be stable with clear blue sky, dry and at the same time one of the popular religious festivals  named Manirimdu festival will be held in Tyangboche Monastery.
Winter and summer are also good if you would prefer less crowdy, and ready to face the some challanges like snow, cold, and rain.Even in winter weather will always be clear but the these three months are coldest month of the year and sometimes snow falls. In Summer, It is very good to do trekking, tempreture will be warm, those who are keen to botanist, summer is the best but the due to unstable weather the views of mountains are very rare.


5) Altitude Sickness
Trekking in Everest region is one of the highest trekking in world.In high altitude , the mass of oxygen will be less, so everyone feels difficult to breath as well as mild headache, dizziness etc.This is one of the biggest challanges in mountain.In the altitude, there are many rules to make our body adaptable to the  altitude. Acclimatization is one of the important factor  to adjust our body get used to the altitude. All our itineries are designed with proper acclimatization  day in every 1000 mtr climbing.The most important rules that we have to follow in altitude is walk slowly, keep drinking plenty of  fluids as water , soups etc to make our body hydrated, and keep our body warm. Our staffs and guide will always do their best  as they can, eventhough incase of any sickness,injury one should avoid their rest trip and should come down.

(6)Travel Insurance
It is compulsory to buy the proper travel insurance policy with genuine insurance company, it should cover the emergency helicopter evacuation as well as medical treatment incase of severe injury or sickness and Policy  should include coverage at the altitudes up to 6000 Mtr if you are doing just trekking and if you are doing mountaineering should be  6500 Mtr.

In this trek , first some days you will get phone signal as well as internet connectivity then untill we get to Namche , there is neither phone signal,nor Internet connectivity  but for  incase your guide will carry satelite telephone  which for emergency  case.


(9)Sanitation
In mostly places toilet are  common and need to use the same toilet  using by everyone else. Mostly place there may not be available of hand washing water, so highly recommend to take hand sanitizer by yourself and most importantly toilet papers or wet tissue paper should always  be in your day bag.

(10)Government permits and National park permit
To enter in Everest region you have to buy Sagaramatha national park permit and local government permit,the cost will be included in trip cost.Your guide will manage everything.

(11)Guiding and staffing
In this trek average walk per day is 6-7 hours. Leisurely and pleasant guiding will definitely take you to destination.  More you gaining altitude more hard to walk, toughest and longest  day will be the day of going to the pass . Your experieced guide and porter will always be there to help you in every moment.Guide is the key factor for the every challanging in mountain so one should follow the instruction of guide pleasantly.Every day after dinner your guide will do brief about the next days trip.

(12) Budgeting
