The heartwarming hospitality of gregarious and jovial Sherpa people makes your journey reminiscing wonderful. In addition, you will get to observe the spectacular beauty of Tsho Rolpa Lake and the Yalung glacier during your stay at the Na village.

Further walking on the slippery glaciers, the trail takes you to the Tashi Lapcha Pass(5755m). Crossing the high pass provides the true wilderness with the beaten path trekking experience. The Tashi Lapcha Pass separates the Gaurishankar Conservation Area from Sagarmatha Conservation Area. However, the trail of Tashi Lapcha Pass connects the Rolwaling region with the Khumbu region. Leaving behind the tranquil trails of the Rolwaling region, we will move towards the bustling trails of the Khumbu region, crowded with the trekkers from Everest Base Camp. Strolling around the lively Namche Bazar town, we will finally end our Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trek at Lukla. After that, we will fly back to Kathmandu.
