The Route for Climbing Ramdung Peak
Ramdung Peak Climbing starts with the trip from Charikot to Singita through Dolakha, which goes to the fringe of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area. The ascent doesn't start until you reach Daldung La in the second portion of the second day (2,850m).
You will reach a valley if you follow the Rolwaling River up. From there, you can view the Gaurishankar peak (7,134 meters). The trek's days will grow shorter as you approach higher elevations, but the path will begin to level off again.
Make sure to practice with your equipment and brush up on your abilities before heading to Ramdung Base Camp (5,040m). Before setting up camp there at night, visit the Ramdung Glacier and the Ramdung High Camp. Then, early in the morning, they ascend. You cannot linger at the peak for too long because it is located at 5,925 meters. However, before returning to base camp, you will have time to enjoy the breathtaking views.

Altitude sickness on Climbing Ramdung Peak
Even the most athletic trekkers are susceptible to the insidious monster known as altitude sickness. This necessitates making every effort to get ready for high-altitude trekking and being cautious the entire time. High altitude sickness is caused mainly by a reduction in the amount of oxygen that is readily accessible as you ascend in height.
Ramdung Peak climbing requires good acclimatization because it is a high-altitude hike. Start at a lower altitude and gradually work your way up since your body needs time to become used to the thin air. The following are a few signs of altitude sickness:
- Initial symptoms of altitude sickness
- include expanded breathing
- and a rise in urination.
- Headache and sleep disturbance.
- Breathing in and out periodically during the night.
Effects of Having Altitude sickness
- respiration difficulty.
- Extreme exhaustion, respiratory malfunction
- brain swelling.
To prevent the problem from getting worse, several precautions should be taken. First, however, you might need to descend to a lower height and get medical attention if the symptoms worsen. However, you can take several additional measures to reduce your risk of altitude sickness when hiking.
Because it takes time for our systems to acclimate to the increased oxygen level, trekkers can alter their bodies by rising gently and steadily. High altitude hiking necessitates at least one day of acclimatization rest, and you should ascend to the highest point before descending to a lower altitude for the night.

To build strength and endurance for your expedition, you should engage in various strength training exercises, including running, cycling, jogging, push-ups, and visiting the gym. Elevation decreases oxygen levels as the air becomes increasingly thin, and in the Rolwaling area, height also means fewer flowers. In addition, the amount of water in the body is reduced by tobacco, alcohol, and cigarettes.
Accommodations and Food on Climbing Ramdung Peak
For climbers, food is the most crucial energy source during their ascent and expedition. To replenish your energy hourly, include emergency health energy bars and dry meals.
You won't be able to explore all of the world's unique natural attractions in a single trip; instead, you must choose according to what appeals to your senses the most. There will always be a more picturesque location in the Himalayas, no matter where you travel. Additionally, a comfortable hotel is a crucial component of the voyage because it aids in your body's preparation for the walk the following day. A good night's sleep and enough rest are essential in high-altitude climbs.
You may choose between staying in lodges, guesthouses, or tents when climbing Ramdung Peak. However, it's a good idea to pack a sleeping bag to ensure a cozy and warm night's sleep.
The Internet and electricity are available in the Rolwaling region
One of Nepal's most isolated regions is the Rolwaling Valley. Electricity is not accessible. Solar energy is the sole source of electricity used in the entire valley and can only light one bulb. There isn't a power outlet in your room. So your gadget won't be able to charge using solar power, even if you are prepared to pay for charging. Our walk begins and ends in Chetchet, where you may charge your electronic devices. It is advised that you pack a power bank that will last the whole walk. A new hydropower project has recently been planned near the Rolwaling valley, and a power pole has been set up. Rolwaling valley will therefore have access to energy in a few years.
Internet service and facilities
To stay in touch with your loved ones, colleagues, and coworkers, publish updates on your journey and upload images, you'll need access to the Internet and a network facility. Unfortunately, because there is no power, there is no internet service in Rolwaling Valley.
Until Tsho Rolpa, NTC Cellular has been offering GSM mobile network service in the Rolwalin valley. The NTC sim card costs $1 and is available at retailers in Kathmandu. You may access the Internet from NTC to Tsho Rolpa by purchasing data packages, but only when the mobile network receives a signal.
Arrangements for Staff and Guide
Our skilled and knowledgeable team will manage all your activities throughout the walk. In addition, they will conduct the entire escort. In addition, we will supply you with a highly qualified and experienced guide who speaks fluent English, has good navigational abilities, and has rope-fixing skills because this is one of the trickiest and hardest treks. They will travel with you from Kathmandu and serve as your guides while you ascend Ramdung Peak.
Our lead guides, assistant guides, and potters are all highly qualified and knowledgeable. We thus ask for your cooperation and respect for them during the journey.
Smart Travel Rolwaling Valley
The undiscovered tourist spot in Nepal is the Rolwaling Valley. The most remote and culturally rich settlement in the Rolwaling valley. You will get to observe the customs of this region's long-established Chettri, Gurung, and Sherpa populations. The least populated valley is the one in question.
Therefore, you must respect the locals, their local customs and culture, as well as the environment and the natural world. By utilizing local goods and services, you may assist them. You can learn some polite Nepali phrases, such as "Namaskar" and "Tashi Delek," which indicate "good day," "good luck," and blessings.
You have to keep your cool while you stroll down the woodland route. Play no music in the forest. It alarmed the animals. We anticipate that you will responsibly dispose of your plastic waste (food wrappers and plastic water bottles).

The infrastructure in this valley is not very advanced because it is a recently discovered trekking location. Your minor acts of disrespect and carelessness might have serious consequences down the road. Your ethical travel will aid Nepal in developing a long-term, sustainable tourist industry.

Climbing Ramdung Peak in Spring: March, April, May
The greatest time to travel to the Nepalese Himalayas is during the spring months of March through May. During these months, the temperature is warmer, and the sky and weather are pretty straightforward and sunny. Temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees are typical at under 3,500 meters. However, they will decrease at night. Once over 3,500 feet, you may anticipate dramatic temperature reductions at night and early morning, frequently as low as -15 degrees.
In these months, there is a little bit of rain, but nothing too heavy, and this helps to bring out the natural colors in the diverse flora and fauna, notably in the rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal.
June to August are the months of summer
The monsoon season in Nepal occurs in June, July, and August, although it occasionally lasts into mid-September. Mid-June, before the rains get up, is a good time for specific hikes, but visibility may be poor.
The rains bring additional difficulties and barriers. Mountain flights don't happen too often.
While landslides may prevent access to roadways, while it is still feasible to go hiking in the middle of June, we advise against classic climbs like Everest because the possibility of protracted delays at Lukla might result in missing an international flight.
Climbing Ramdung Peak in Autumn:- September, October, and November is the season of fall.
The fall season goes from mid-September to mid-December and has weather somewhat comparable to spring. It is also the best time to go climbing. There are several hiking choices available because there is a large window of good vision.
The Dashain/Tihar/Chhat festivals and other celebrations are particularly well-known at this time of year. In addition, long national holidays make it possible for many individuals to visit family in their villages, increasing the vibrancy of rural Nepal. Generally, bright skies, little rain, and mild temperatures are the norm.
