Ramdung_copy_900x450-01

Ramdung-Go Peak (5,925m.) is located to the south of Na in the Upper Rolwaling region, Ramdung peak climbing is one of a cluster of peaks surrounding the Yalung La. Rolwaling through the village of Simigaon (2000m) located high above the Bhote Kosi. Above the Shapka Meadow (2,600m.) the path divides. Here the right branch is recommended, for while it is certainly more arduous it is also decidedly the more rewarding. After a four-hour ascent you reach the Daldung La (3,976 m,) which has a fantastic view of the (7,146 m.) high Gaurishankar opposite.
Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass is a challenging great combo outing in the wild that connects the trails of Rolwaling and Khumbu / Everest region. Tashi Lapcha Pass trek is located in the west part of the Khumhu, directly on the Tibetan frontier there is a wild, lonely high valley the “Rolwaling” which is called simply “the grave” by the indigenous Sherpas on account of its location – buried down between steep ice-giants. According to old Sherpa tradition, this is the seat of the goddess “Tashi Tserringma,” who is the guarantor of a long life.
Gaurishankar Is Also holy for the Hindus: Shankar, the name of the northem peak, is a designation for Shiva in their everyday spoken language. The southern summit, Gauri is a synonym for the feminine manifestation of the god From Daldung La you climb down for four or five hours on a really adventurous path through the dense rain forest to the Rolwaling River, which you then cross. There you meet up again with the other path, which certainly also has a beautiful landscape, but doesn’t snake down to Simigaon quite as spectacularly. After about Two and half hours walking time up-river you reach the Sherpa village of Beding (3,693m.) the only noteworthy settlement in Rolwaling. From here you have an overwhelming view of the mountain-giants Chekigo (6,735m.), Bamongo (6,400m.), Kang Nachugo (6,735m.), and above all, Tsoboje (6,689m.). From here we head to Tashi Laptsa known as Tesi Lapcha La (5,755m.) the most difficult pass of this region. After crossing the pass we then get to Thame, Namche and finally to Lukla via Kathmandu.
