Rolwaling, meaning the furrow left by the plow, is a rugged trail, yet beautiful area rarely visited by tourists perfect for those looking for an off the beaten trail experience. The trek to Rolwaling involves the crossing of high pass Trashi Labtsa (5,755m) and the climbing of Parcharmo (6,273m) and offers technical mountaineering with glacier crossings, requiring crampons and ice ax.

The trail starts from Charikot, which is about a 4-hour drive from Kathmandu. We begin by hiking along the Tamba Kosi River under the shadow of Mt. Gauri Shanker (7,145m), the holy mountain to Bhote Kosi River. From the village of Simigaon, the trail follows the Rolwaling Khola. With views of Melungtse (7,181m), we proceed further through the village of Beding (3,690m) with its monastery.
From the village of Na (4,183m) the trail ascends through the grass-covered valley to Tso Rolpa then traversing the moraine on the north side of the valley onto the Tram Bau Glacier. The route up Prachormo is highly crevasses. After an assault, the trail drops to Thame, from where the route along Bhote Kosi river leads to the famous Namche Bazaar and ends our trek the village of Lukla for our flight to Kathmandu.
