Rolwaling Trek

West 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’s on account of its location – buried down between steep ice-giants. Many mysterious stories have been passed on about this valley. There are three factors which have helped to preserve this splendid valley from the ravaging onslaught of tourists. First of all it is relatively arduous to get there at all, secondly there are neither lodgings nor food to buy, and third you need a special permit to be allowed to hike into Rolwaling.

You must purchase – pro-forma – a climbing permit for the Ramdung Peak (5.925 m) regardless of whether or not you want to climb the mountain. Rolwaling trek takes you through dense, gloomy primeval forests and over broad ridge backs with wonderful views. The southern summit, Gauri (literally: “the white”) is a synonym for the feminine manifestation of the god. 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 (6.735m), Bamongo (6.400 m), Kang Nachugo (6.735 m), and above all, Tsoboje (6,689 m).
