A scenic drive on the Kathmandu – Lhasa highway begins this adventure! We rest at the ancient trading town of Dolakha then begin the trek through the Rolwaling Valley which is celebrated as one of the seven hidden valleys in the Himalayas. We will pass through beautiful Sherpa and Tamang villages. Rolwaling is the east – west valley below Gauri Shanker (7,145m) just south of Tibetan border. Beding and Na are the last Sherpa villages of this valley. Many expert Sherpa climbers from this area have conquered Mt. Everest and numerous other 8,000m peaks. We cross over the Tashi Lapcha pass (5,755m) and visit the hometown of Tenzing Norgay, Thame. Next we enter the Khumbu Valley, the land of the Sherpas which lies at the foot of Mt Everest. There are great views of Mt. Gauri Shanker, Mt. Dorje Lakpa and Mt. Tashi Lapcha all along the trail. This trek also offers a great opportunity for short climbs on Ramdong Go (5,930m) and Pharchamoro (6,187m). Be prepared for strenuous hiking. Technical climbing experience and good mountaineering gear are essential.
