Introduction

Situated in the west of the Khumbu Region, Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek happens to be one of the most challenging and beautiful treks.  The trek offers walk-in a remote part of this region, stunning mountain views, diverse flora and fauna, and rich local cultures. The trek takes you to the challenging yet rewarding Tashi Lapcha pass (5,755m), and the strikingly beautiful Tso Rolpa ice lake. From the high pass, one can have the breathtaking scenery of and panoramic snow-covered Himalayan peaks soaring high in the sky.  The diversity in flora and fauna, rich local culture, warm hospitality, and heritage adds more good taste to this trek. The trek is technically challenging, so we recommend trekker with previous trekking experience to sign up for this trek. The trail goes through the untouched ridges and valleys below the Gaurishankar Himalaya range. This adventure combines a wide variety of scenery, passing through beautiful and less-traveled villages, while we enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Gaurishanker, Jugal Himal and other mountains.

The Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek commences with a scenic drive to Shigatte from Kathmandu. From Shigatte, we pass through various villages like Jagat, Simigaun, Donga, and Beding to reach a valley of Rolwaling. Then we proceed towards Yalung Base Camp and ascend to Tso Rolpa and then to Rolwaling glacier that is situated just below Rolwaling glacier. Finally, we move towards Tashi Lapcha Pass from where one can have the best view mountains and high passes. Then we descend to Namche via Thame and make our way to Kathmandu via a flight from Lukla.
