Posted By: Simran Subba , July 2021

Tashi Lapcha pass trek is a 24-day hiking program that connects the most famous Everest regions with some other well-known trek, the Rolwaling trek. This walk is difficult since it passes through a remote portion of the Himalayan region and includes some difficult terrain.  trekkers must traverse extremely steep ascents and descents, as well as travel through some passes and cross Himalayan streams, rivers, and glaciers. The Jugal Himal, Rolwaling range, Gaurishanker, Mahalangur, Parchamo peak, Chobabhamre, and other ranges are also visible from the hike.

This is said to be one of the routes taken by people from Kham, Tibet, in the mid-nineteenth century. These people became known as Sherpa after settling in this area and the Everest region. As a result, this voyage is historically and culturally significant. Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru are all visible after crossing the pass and entering the Everest region. When you arrive at Namche Bazaar, a lively market town, you'll have the chance to mingle with other trekking and climbing groups as well as Sherpas.

But, aside from seeing a couple of snow partridges and coming across herds of yaks (or, more correctly, naks) giving milk for cheese manufacturing, keep an eye out for the famous Yeti. Eric Shipton photographed Yeti footprints on the slopes of the Rolwaling Peak in 1951!

This trek offers a unique blend of history and culture, as well as breathtaking mountain vistas and the satisfaction of crossing a high Himalayan pass.

The Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is made more demanding and thrilling by the high altitude and the high Tashi Lapcha Pass. Trekkers should be in decent physical shape to complete this extremely difficult journey. Furthermore, mental readiness is more important. They will benefit from previous trekking experience.

When climbing to a higher altitude, there's a good chance you'll suffer altitude sickness. Trekkers, on the other hand, can avoid sickness by acclimating properly. Trekkers who experience any of the symptoms of altitude sickness, such as nausea, lack of appetite, difficulty breathing, and so on, must descend to a lower altitude promptly.

Trekking in this area is also recommended at the finest time of year.

The altitude of the Tashi Lapcha pass trek

The trek's maximum height is Tashi Lapcha La Pass. Situated 5,755 meters above sea level, it is the highest point in the area. After passing via this high pass, you'll arrive in the Khumbu region. Meanwhile, after the Rolwaling Valley's Na village, there are no human settlement sites.

Cost of the Tashi Lapcha pass trek

The Rolowalling trip is now offered for USD 2,995 on a double occupancy basis, which is the usual trek pricing. At this price, we will provide you with Tourist Standard lodging in Thamel, Kathmandu, and the trip fee will, of course, vary depending on the number of people in your group.
