Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is a classic Himalayan trekking that ventures through the less-trodden route of Rolwaling into the famous Everest region via Tashi Lapcha Pass. Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is one such trek that still holds the classic experience of Himalayan trekking. Our 16-days Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek has been tailored to keep every important aspect in mind and to ensure that you have the most amazing experience in one of the most remote parts of the Himalayas.

Rolwaling is perhaps the least visited part of the Himalayan region and this is what makes this place truly amazing. Rolwaling valley is rich in terms of cultural and natural beauty. The valley has a majority of Sherpa people living and has a very rich culture and tradition. Rolwaling is also home to the famous Tso Rolpa and Omi Tso Lakes.

Our Trek begins from the Rolwaling region as we trek to Beding and Naa following the Tamakoshi River. We stay 2 nights at Beding and Naa villages for acclimatization and exploration before moving further.

After a week of trekking allowing proper acclimatization, we arrive at Naa Gaon where we will spend two nights. Naa Goan is the last settlement of the Rolwaling region. we cross over the Tashi Lapcha Pass (5,755m/18,882ft) which links the Rolwaling region with the Khumbu region in 3 days from Naa Village. After crossing the Pass, we arrive at Thame and then continue to Namche Bazar the next day. Namche Bazar is the biggest settlement in the Everest region and is also known as the Sherpa capital. From Namche, we trek down to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. So, In earlier days there were no teahouses/lodges in the Rolwaling region but now the locals have built teahouses/lodges in almost every place except for the 3 nights on this trek which is at the Tashi Lapcha Pass Area. Our choice of accommodation on this trek will be a mix of both teahouse/lodge and camping. For the 3 nights on the pass, it will be a fully camping trek.

This trip ventures through a less-trodden route and is a classic Himalayan holiday. Unlike the other trekking areas in Nepal which have become more commercialized, the Rolwaling region is a hidden gem and is less visited by tourists. Experience trekking in complete solitude, tread the off-the-beaten-path and traverse Tashi Lapcha Pass, one of the highest high mountain passes in Nepal.
