Rolwaling Camping Trek

This fall trip features three nights in Kathmandu and a 18 days trek into the remote Rolwaling Himal of Everest and a few miles south of the Tibetan frontier. The Rolwaling, literally known as "The Furrow" in the Sherpa language, has always held a mysterious fascination. It is a wild and little known valley and tales of the yeti, the elusive Abominable of the Rolwaling that British Mountaineer Eric Shipton first photographed a yeti track in 1951 and it is to the Snowman, have poured from the mouths of the handful of Sherpas who live there. It is on the slopes of the peaks Rolwaling that Hillary led his 1960 expedition whose object was, in past, to search for the yeti.

 

The trek is non-technical and suitable for anyone in good shape who likes to hike over mountain trails and camp out. This is not a backpack trip, and porters will be used to carry your gear and camp staff will prepare all meals and pitch and take down the tents.

 

"Having trekked in other parts of Nepal, I found Rolwaling to be unique in that it offers much of the remoteness we experienced in Western Nepal and at the same time all the spectacular peaks and glaciers like the adjacent Everest area."
