The Tsho Rolpa Lake Trek is a wilderness nature trail located in the Rolwaling mountains in Nepal. Tsho Rolpa is one of the biggest glacial lakes in Nepal. The lake, which is located at an altitude of 4,580 meters in the Rolwaling Valley, Dolakha District, has grown considerably over the last 50 years due to glacial melting in the Himalayas.

Moreover, researchers are now reassessing the state of Tsho Rolpa – located around 115 km northeast of Kathmandu in Dolakha District. One of the benefits of considering Tsho Rolpa is the accessibility of information on the lake’s evolution. Analysts Scientific started considering the lake in the mid-1990s when the lake’s high flood hazard was recognized.

Hike the Tsho Rolpa Lake is still off the beaten path trek route that provides an opportunity to explore the scenery of the remote landscape. Mountains that can be seen on this hike incorporate Gauri Shankar (7,145m) and Menlungtse (7,181m), among others. The hiking path goes through Brahmin, Chhetri, Tamang, and Sherpa towns as the route goes very close to the Tibet border. Because the distance from Kathmandu to Tsho Rolpa Glacial Lake is 114 kilometers only.

Another grand attraction of this territory is a Bigu Gompa, a top monastery along the treks, where more than a hundred nuns are living. There is additionally an amazing story of the accursed snowman, known as the “Yeti” in the area. Therefore, travelers are exploring this zone to experience local culture and wilderness lifestyles.

Furthermore, glacial lake Tsho Rolpa is not the easiest trek in Nepal for beginner trekkers. Tsho Rolpa trail is a virgin route awakening. Thus there is almost no other tourist en route to see but you can see the diverse spices of flora and fauna.

The best ideal opportunity for Tsho Rolpa trip in Autumn and Spring. Loaded with bright rhododendron blossoms will be filling in the backwoods. Appreciate nature as you journey up. However, the Rolowalling Tsho Rolpa trek is possible to explore in all months of the year. Beding village, Tsho rolpa

1 Day Arrival at Kathmandu valley

Upon arrival in Kathmandu, Tribhuwan International Airport, we will receive you with private vehicle and transfer to hotel in Kathmandu with breakfast plan. Our representative will brief you Tsho Rolpa Hiking information.

2 Day World Heritage sites(1,348m) tours in Kathmandu, 6 hours.

All aspects of gear and conditions are discussed to make sure you’re fully prepared for the trip, and any last-minute questions 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 Syambhunath Stupa. And transfer to the hotel.

3 Day Drive from Kathmandu to Chechet and trip to Simi Gaon(2,000m/6,562 feet), 10 hours

Today we will take the early morning transport from Old Bus leave at around 6 AM to Chechet. The drive finishes the uneven ride on the winding and dusty streets. The dusty ride with wonderful scenes and sprouting rhododendron blossoms in transit make your lengthy drive worthwhile. We cross Kharidhunga, Charikot, Singati, and Gongar en route. From Chechet we will require a short two hours climb to Simi Gaon for an overnight stay lodge.

4 Day Trek to Dongang (2,790m/9,154 feet), 6 hours

In the wake of leaving Simigaun, the path is moderate grade with just slight climbs and plunges. Climb at Kyalche has a pleasant guesthouse. We proceed to climb further to Dongang to make the following day simpler. The course from Kyalche to Dongang is genuinely simple. The town of Dongang is only two teahouses. Coming, we see an incredible eagle flying on the opposite side of the waterway. It sits roosted there while we appreciate how enormous it is from far off.

5 Day Beding Trekking (3,721m/12,209 feet), 5 hours walk

Today after breakfast, we ascend our trek to arrive at Beding today. The path in transit is vivid and lively on account of the sprouting Rhododendron blossoms, vegetations, and the white Mountains shimmering at the top. After around three hours of hiking from Simi Gaon, we will arrive at Surmuche town. And afterward further two hours of the trip takes us to Kyalche and then to Dongang.

Coming, the phenomenal sound of birds and wonderful streams make our trip alluring. From Dongang the path to Beding is the lonelier way, through the thick woods and delightful vegetation, the tough walk takes around 4/5 hours to arrive at Beding.

6 Day Beding to Na Trekking (3,943m/12,937 feet), 5 hours walk

The best part of this day is seeing all of the yak herds, cows, and sheep roaming freely through the valley. We got to know that about 10 years ago Guru Rinpoche made it illegal to kill animals above Dongang. Previously, tourists would come camping and demand meat. Locals would kill the animals for business, but it’s a Buddhist zone and Guru Rinpoche felt it was disrespectful. Five years later, he rescued 108 yaks and brought them to the area to roam free. Seeing the animals free and wild Yaks were pretty cool but have in mind that the YAKS are wild, so do not touch or approach.

7 DayTsho Rolpa Lake trek (4,580m/15,027 feet) and back to Beding, 7 hours

Today in the wake of having early morning breakfast, we will begin our journey to Tsho Ropla. The present walk is a bit longer since we need to back at a similar spot this evening. It’s about 2:30 hours-long stretches of a hike to Tsho Rolpa Lake. The excellent spots of ice and greenish water, an impression of blue sky sparkling like a gem in the midst of the all-encompassing blanketed mountains invites us to Tsho Rolpa Lake. Have in mind that the mountain lake is often getting cloudy, so check the Tsho Rolpa weather 24 hours before moving. Excursionists can see the captivating perspective on Majestic Mountain Gauri Shanker.

In addition, Rolwaling Valley is connected with the Everest mountain district. Optional travelers cross the high pass Tashi Lapcha over 5700m to get Namche Bazar, Sagarmatha national park. The Tashi Lapcha pass is considered the most difficult high mountain pass of Nepal Himalaya. In the wake of going through certain hours visiting around the Glacial lake of Tsho Rolpa, we will get back to Beding to stay overnight.

8 DayBeding to Gongar Khola, 6 hours.

Today we hike close by the stream Tamakoshi toward the beginning of the day with the different bird’s sounds (exceptionally Danphe and Munal) and the perspective on the silver-sparkling mountains. Following over two hours of walk, you will arrive at Dongang and a further 1 hour of trip to Kalche. And then to Surmuche. We will be following a similar preliminary on our second-day journey. Notwithstanding, we can remain for the time being at Simi Gaon or Chechet as well, despite that it is smarter to travel down to Gongar Khola to get the principal transport of Kathmandu..

9 DayDrive back to Kathmandu city, 10 hours.

Today we will return a drive to Kathmandu through a similar course we drove before to arrive at Chechet, Its around 9 hours of excursion to Kathmandu from Gongar Khola with a similar dusty and uneven street.
