ROLWALING VALLEY REGION

Situated west of the Khumbu region the Rolwaling Himal stretches to the Bhotekoshi River which runs along the Araniko Highway.  This was once the only access to Tibet by land from Nepal, however, the border crossing has moved to Kyirong to the west since the earthquake of 2015. There are two peaks of hard climbing in the 7000-meter range. Gaurishankar which stands at 7143m, and Menlungtse at 7181m. These formidable peaks have rejected plenty of climbers especially Gaurishankar which is protected by a sheer 4000m rock face (7181 m). Consequently in 1979, a joint Nepalese — American party accomplished the first ascent. The summit of Menlungtse on the Tibet side was first climbed in 1992 by a Slovenian party. These two forbidding peaks do not overshadow the other high and beautiful 6000m peaks surrounding them Numbur (6937m), Chobutse (6685m) are another two that feature prominently.  There is a route in this area that leads to Khumbu via the high glacial Tsho Rolpa Lake and the Tashi Lapcha Pass. It is also a well-known trekking route nevertheless, few trekkers tackle this route because of its known difficulty. You will find many challenging yet accessible trekking routes in this unique region.
