Rolwaling is situated in the Gaurishankar Conservation Area (GCA). It is moderately difficult tea-house trek nestled between Langtang National Park and Khumbu (Mt. Everest) Rolwaling Valley 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 Sherpa on account of its location – buried down between steep ice-giants. It is relatively arduous to get there. You finally set foot into the Rolwaling through the village of Simigaon (2000m) located high above the Bhote Kosi. Above the Shapka Meadow (2600 m) the path divides. We ascent to the Daldung La (3976 m), which has a fantastic view of the 7146 meter high Gaurishankar opposite. 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 walk downwards 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. We walk to riverside then you reach the Sherpa village of Beding (3693 m) – the only noteworthy settlement in Rolwaling. If it should happen that the monk belonging to the Gompa is in the village at the moment, you can ask him to show you round it himself, 150 meters higher a rocky hermitage is visible, where Padmasambhava is supposed to have meditated some 1200 years ago. The Last Human Lodgings of the valley you can find in Na, which is located about three hours’ distance from Beding. From here you have an overwhelming view of the mountain-giants Chekigo (6735 m), Bamongo (6400 m), Kang Nachugo (6735 m), and above all, Tsoboje (6689 m).
