Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trek lies in Gauri Shankar region and bordering with Tibet. Tashi Lapcha pass trek is not only the challenging but a wilderness trek also. Eric Ship ton discovered this trekking trail in 1951 during the research footprints of Yeti. The trek offers slightly different experience but equally splendid views of the high Himalayas.

Tashi Lapcha pass trek enriched in biological diversity, culture, and real experience of local myth. Besides that, it allows exploring the largest Tso-Rolpa lake. It converts into а trade route between Rolwaling to Everest region passing at Tashi Lapcha. Also, the famous trekking peaks enclose Ramdung Peak, Pachermo Peak, and Melungste. It’s the great of both worlds as you’ll get to enjoy the remoter and lesser-visited region of Rolwaling, yet additionally, visit the exceptional and famous Khumbu valley and parts of the Everest base camp trek.

Therefore, the Tashi Lapcha Pass Treks is one of the demanding trekking trails. It is due to the rock falling along the trek and several days required to walk along the pristine glacier. Although it is obligatory to have а permit of Pachermo peak even trekking of Tashi Lapcha, the trekker should adequately equip for iceberg and ice work having good knowledge for handling the ice. The best time to tour in this region is spring and autumn season, but we can arrange for all the year upon request on camping basis.
