Everest to Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta

28 Days

$ 2511.00

The Everest to Rolwaling Traverese makes for an amazing trek, combining the classic Everest Base Camp trail with the stunning Gokyo Lakes and the challenging passes of Cho La and Tashi Labsta, the latter leading into Rolwaling.

The views on the Everest Base Camp trail are simply unbeatable with the mighty Himalayas towering high above you. While the beginning of this trail is getting more and more populated by fellow trekkers, the numbers drop toward Gokyo and on the trail to the Tashi Labsta you’ll encounter few tourists. 

Gokyo Ri (5360 m) offers incredible views of the turquoise Gokyo Lakes, impressive glaciers and the memorable vistas of the Himalayan giants Mt Everest (8848 m) and Cho Oyo (8188 m).

Crossing the high pass of Tashi Labsta (5755 m) is a real challenge. The trail is sometimes hard to find so hiring a guide who knows the pass is a good idea for this part of the trek. Mountaineering equipment such as ice ax, ropes and crampons are recommended. It’s possible to find a guide and equipment for this portion in Thame. Camping is necessary for the bit crossing Tashi Labsta.

Once conquered Tashi Labsta brings you into the countryside of Rolwaling with small villages surrounded by agricultural terraces; quite a contrast to the first part of the trek!
