Rolwaling Trekking (28 Days)

Rolwaling TrekkingThere is a monastery here and a small hermitage set in a cliff above the village. Here Guru Padma Sambhava is said to have meditated 2000 years ago. Beding is located in a narrow gorge and boasts a school built by Sir Edmond Hillary. Yaks are plentiful. From Beding we will hike up the upper Rolwaling valley which is a stark moraine amid a confusing tangle of ice peaks, glaciers and little used passes. Along the ridge to the North is the Tibetan border. Views of Menlungtse (23,500 feet) appear as well as that of the beautiful fluted ice peak of Chobutse (21,900 feet), one of the more prominent peaks in the upper Rolwaling. The valley becomes U shaped as we pass the potato fields and houses of the summer village of Na. All moving days past Beding will be short to allow for acclimatisation, and we will make camp by lunch. We finally reach our final objective, Tsho Rolpo, a large glacial lake at almost 15,000 feet dammed by the great Ripimo Shar glacier. Our highest camp at the base of the great ice-wall of Chobutse. Mountain vistas of the mountains surrounding the Ripimo Glacier and of Chobutse from this camp are unsurpassed. On our return we retrace our route for three days until we reach the Bhote Kosi river again at the village of Congar (4100 feet). Continuing down the warm Bhote Kosi valley we reach the Hindu village of Suri Dhoban (3400 feet). A half-day rest here will allow us to escape the heat to be found at this lower elevation by taking a swim in the pleasant clean waters of the Khare Khola. From Suri Dhoban we trek for three days to the end of the trek at Jiri. First, we must climb our of the heat of the Bhote Kosi valley passing many small villages and finally crossing a ridge at about 9200 feet. Descending through meadows and villages we reach Jiri (6100 feet), the terminus of the new road from Lamasango built with Swiss aid. Our last camp at Jiri will include a party with the porters featuring lots of local singing and dancing and consumption of rakshi the local firewater. Our charter bus will take us back to Kathmandu from Jiri after 16 days exciting trek.
