The Tashi lapcha Pass Trek is situated in the Rolwaling mountain region in Nepal. It is located in between Rolwaling & Khumbu valley providing an opportunity to explore the remote parts of the mountain scenery. The highest Tashi Lepcha trek altitude is 5,755m above sea level. Travelers can experience the views of Jugal Himal, Rolwaling range, Gaurishankar, Mahalangur, Parchamo peak, Chobabhamre..etc.
An adventure Tashi Lepcha pass is combined with climbing Pachermo (6,272m/20,572 feet) peak, another adventure plus on your journey. So, we recommend only experienced trekkers because there is some blue ice and craves on the pass, so sometimes it is technically very difficult.
Furthermore, the diversity in flora and fauna, rich in local cultural heritage are the other highlights of this trek. Adventure Rolwaling Tashi Lepcha pass trek escapes from the well-trekked trails to explore the untouched ridges and valleys below the Gaurishankar Himalaya range and combines a wide variety of scenery, passing through charming, tranquil villages, while we enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Gaurishanker and Jugal Himal.
As soon we crossed this high pass, we descend downhill walking to Khumbu valley passing by Thame village. Descend downhill walking to Lukla bazaar and fly out to Kathmandu from the wonderful memory of the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha pass trek. However, if you don’t like to descend downhill walking, you might continue your multi-adventure trek to Everest base camp or Gokyo valley as you like. Tashilapcha pass is in a Rolwalling territory and is possible to explore at any time (except winter months) during the year.

The particular adventure high pass route is designed for world travelers who wish to hike over Tashi Lapcha pass to take more rest. However, if this plan doesn’t suit you then send us a tailor-made itinerary.1 DayArrival at Kathmandu valley. World Heritage sites(1,348m) tours in Kathmandu, 4-5 hours.
Arrival in Kathmandu, Tribhuwan International Airport, we will receive you in a private vehicle and drive you to a hotel in Kathmandu. All aspects of gear and conditions are discussed to make sure you’re fully prepared for the trip, and any last-minute questions are answered.
After lunch, we explore this medieval capital. We visit Boudhanath, also known as Little Tibet. Furthermore, we visit Pashupatinath, a holy Hindu temple where the cremation takes place by the holy river Bagmati. Later we visit Kathmandu Durbar Square. And transfer to the hotel.
Today we will take the early morning Bus transport from Kathmandu to Chhetchhet. The drive finishes the rough ride on the winding and dusty highway. The dusty road ride with wonderful scenes and sprouting rhododendron blossoms in transit make your lengthy drive worthwhile. We stay at Chhetchhet for an overnight stay in a lodge.
Our journey begins on a trail through dense forests of rhododendron and orchids to Simi Gaon. Many times of ascending and descending journey along the banks of the Rolwaling river take us through a narrow valley to a suspension bridge across which a steep climb takes us to the hillside village of Simigaun. Simigaon is situated at an altitude on 2,036 meters above the sea that offers finest view of Gauri Shankar mountain.
The sun rises over the majestic Gaurishankar this morning as we ascend a forested ridge-line above the Rolwaling Valley ahead of us we can see the sharp peak of Gaurisankar (7,135m) standing on the border with Tibet. We then begin to contour the Northern edge of the valley before dropping down slightly to Kharka where we can stay overnight.
We continue along the left bank of Rowaling River and the forests start to thin out around us. To our left the valley’s Southern slope arise up gradually become the ridge-series shaping the border with Tibet. Ahead of us the superb south west face of Kang Nachugo rears up to 6,737 meters as part of this series. Beding is a nice Sherpa village at 3,440 meters situated an the bank of Rolwaling Khola offers some guest houses and a Gompa.
A pastoral scene unfolds around Beding where fields of buckwheat and barley are punctuated by grazing mountain yaks. To our left, a stunning ridge line formed by Bamango, Checking, and Konyklemo stands to be admired. Passing an impressive monastery, we reach our overnight stop at Na. Nagaon is a Sherpa village that situated at an elevation on 4,183 meters above the sea and offers some nice guest houses.
As we reach Nagaon in the midday, we would have plenty of time in the afternoon to explore something around. Likewise, our guide and the kitchen crew will make final preparations of all entire foods that we require to take up to the higher camps for the next few days.
Cross the Tsho rolpa river, walk through the nice valley and ascend to the glacial moraine wall at Tso Rolpa Lake (4,588m/15,053 feet). Viewpoint just above a lake provides an incredible landscapes, the lake itself and glacial rolwaling path. The lake is also called Chukyima Pokhari and famous for enhancing spiritual health as you witness the peaceful and tranquil Tibetan Buddhists as they go about their daily routine. Beneath the soaring peak of Menlung, we encounter our first glimpse of the Trakarding Glacier. As we arrive here on the ground of Tso Rolpa, we fix our tent for an overnight stay and rest of the time, explore around which helps you to get better acclimatization. This lake had been growing steadily from the 1950’s and lead to worry about the stability of the moraine dam at its western end. As a result a channel was cut through the rocky moraine dam and an engineered sluice installed to help relieve the pressure.
We will pass along the flank of the lake and camp either alongside at Kabug or just past the lake. The journey today is harder then earlier days therefore we walk only a short distance with four hours only.
on the west flank of Parchamo, and where the Drolambau glacier tumbles down from the canyon to the north. Depending on the conditions on the hillside and the glacier its self we will pick a route up to a rocky rib on the outer south east edge of the valley corner where we will set up the campsite. Note that Trakarding Glacier is also marked as the Tashi Lapcha base camp.
We will make an early start to make the most of the more stable, frozen, slopes above us. The epic crossing of Tashi Lapcha pass will leave you breathless, with jaw-dropping high mountain scenery along the way. In terms of high altitude and higher elevations, crossing Tashi Lapcha is the hardest day hike and the most difficult hike in the world. Comparing other tent treks in the Himalayas, Tashi Lepcha is a difficult hiking trail in Nepal but not the most dangerous hike in the world.
Parchamo will keep us in the shade so the first few hours will be cold as we push on slowly up the Drolambau glacier with Teng Ragi Tau massive in front of us. As we reach its flank we double back on ourselves on a glacial camp up to the Tashi Labsta Pass. Here we emerge into the full force of the sun and get our first view down into the Thame River valley as it drops toward the Khumbu. We go a little past the pass and round to a large overhanging cave at the foot of the Teng Ragi Tau where we make our high camp.
If we feel better and well acclimatize then we proceed to start early to begin Pachermo summit attempt. Cross the glacial moraine at the pass and then rope up to begin the steeper ground. We are essentially following the longtail – ridgeline up to the summit but it will involve some degree of winding back and forth around undulations and pinnacles before we reach the summit. The view out from the summit takes in an unimaginable view of several mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu ..etc. After the required photos we will carefully begin the descent back to our high camp to meet the entire crew.
This extra day is included to ensure a successful summit of Pachermo in case of unfavorable weather conditions. We’ll take care to ensure our team members are properly acclimatized for the ascent. However, we reach at our camping spot on time for an unbelievable sunset view to Everest territory. Its time to clean the base camp also.
Descending downhill is even more harder then ascend therefore we leave early to again make the most of the time when the ice and rocks are well frozen and stable. We select our way carefully down initially steep ground and then to a set of small lakes. At this point, it’s an easier a few kilometers down to Thengpo. If we all feel good we may push on down to Thame to give us more time in Namche tomorrow. Also, visit an ancient monastery above Thame.
Thme village is a traditional Sherpa village in the Everest Region of Nepal, and that receives fewer visitors than other villages in the Khumbu Territory. It’s also a legendary of Sherpa inhabitants. The trail from Thame monastery to Namche Bazaar is fine, easy and 9.7 kilo meters distance that we can cover in three hours Journey. However, a short trek to Namche gives you a chance to enjoy the fabulous mountains scenery, National park museum etc.
The final descent to Lukla is steep and rocky, but the oxygen-rich air will bring great comfort. Descending into the lush jungles against the roar of the Dudh Koshi below, we’ll leave the Himalayan giants behind us and stop for our final rest in Lukla.
A morning flight will bring us back to Kathmandu. You’ll be escorted from Tribhuvan airport to your hotel. Enjoy the sights and sounds of bustling Thamel for the evening and reminisce about an amazing journey.
Drop you in Kathmandu International Airport onward to your final destination and our trip ends. Wish you a wonderful journey.
