Furthermore, the enchanting views of Mt Gaurishankar, Jugal Himal, Mt Everest, Langtang, and many other snowcapped mountains add more excitement and adventure to your journey. Besides this, strolling around the largest Glacier lake in Nepal, Tsho Rolpa Lake, you will get mesmerized by this glacier lake's beauty.

 

According to several Myths and stories, Rolwaling is the home to the Himalayan Yeti. The myths regarding the presence of Yeti make the trek more interesting for the trekkers. The Rolwaling valley is considered one of the hidden valleys of Nepal. As the Valley lies deep down between the steep ice giants, the indigenous Sherpa’s named this deep valley “Rolwaling.” According to them, the name Rolwaling means “the Grave.” You will get to observe the lifestyle and tradition of Tamangs and Sherpas while trekking through the several villages of this region. Further, interacting with the locals will love their cheerful and benevolent nature. 

 

Rolwaling trek provides you with an excellent opportunity to climb the Ramdong Go Peak(5930m) and Yalung Pass(5310m). Furthermore, by crossing the Tashi Lapcha Pass, one can get into the Everest region too. The trail is quite challenging. Those who love more adventure and challenge can choose the Rolwaling Trek with Tashi Lapcha pass. However, if you are the one who wants to avoid such a pass, then you can return to the same route. Undoubtedly, by joining the Rolwaling Valley Trek, you can savor the cultural and natural beauty of the Himalayas.
