Tashi Laptsa Pass Trek

Trip Code: RTL

23 Days

Towards Tashi Laptsa Pass

Tashi Laptsa is Nepal’s one of the most challenging and exciting Passes. It lies at the elevation of 5,755  in the isolated Rolwaling valley. The journey begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to the ancient trading town of Dolakha and same day trek to Shigati, a  small rural hamlet past every day through beautiful indigenous villages past terraced fields, dense, gloomy primeval forests, and climbs over broad ridges enjoying wonderful views. It is a palpitating adventurous trek over dizzy suspension bridges, impressive gorges, and steep paths. We reach the Tashi Lapsa Pass (5755m) in the glaciated wilderness of the very heart of the Himalayas.  The first part of the trek is totally off the beaten track and it requires full board camping. The second half of the trek begins just after we enter to Khumbu, the famous trekking area of Everest region.  Here we will enjoy lodge facility with the best cuisines all along the route till Lukla. From the thrilling elevated airport of Lukla, we exit out of Everest region flying back to Kathmandu.

You will enjoy the stunning mountain scenery including Mt.Gauri Shankar (7145m).  Mt. Tengi Ragi Tau (6943m),  Mt. Bisphero Go Shar (6729m), Mt.Dragkar Go (6793) and many other snowy peaks. After Tashi Laptsa Pass we enter the Khumbu valley, homeland of the Sherpas. While trekking one will experience the mix of vibrant Sherpa culture and explore the remotest corners where no human settlements exist. After we leaving base camp early morning we climb to a high camp at about 5400 m.  and then we  will cross the Rolwaling Tashi Laptsa pass to enter the Khumbu region and proceed on to   Thame, Namche Bazaar and end the trek in Lukla.

Trek to Tashi Laptsa Pass requires the special permit as the Rolwaling region is so wild and remote that not many trekkers have dared to get there. This trek is strenuous and requires physical fitness and basic mountaineering skills
