Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass trek falls in the Gauri Shankar region north-east from central Nepal. Tashi Laptsa Pass Trek is enhanced with biodiversity, history and encounters a local myth. Besides, it discovers the largest Tso-Rolpa lake. It transforms into a trading route between the Rolwaling and Everest regions via Tashi Laptsa Pass. The famous trekking peaks include Ramdung Peak, Pachermo Peak, and Melungste as well. It’s excellent from both sides as you’ll be able to enjoy Rolwaling’s remote and less-visited area. Also, visit the exceptional and famous Khumbu valley and parts of the Everest base camp trek.
Therefore, the Tashi Lapcha Pass Trekking is one of the demanding treks. It is due to the rockfall and several days required to walk along the pristine glacier. Although it is obligatory to have а permit of Pachermo peak even Tashi Laptsa pass trek, the trekker should adequately equip for iceberg and ice work having good knowledge for handling the ice. Tashi Lapcha pass trek is not only challenging but a wilderness trek also.
The Tashi Laptsa Pass trek offers a slightly different experience but equally splendid views of the high Himalayas. The best time to tour in this region is spring and autumn season, but we can arrange for all the year upon request on a camping basis. Eric Ship ton discovered this trekking trail in 1951 during the research footprints of Yeti.
