Ramdung Peak Climbing, 16 Days

Days: 16 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)
Min Group Size: 2 / Max Group Size: 8

The Ramdung Go Peak is situated in the borders of Khumbu and Rolwaling valley in the eastern side of Nepal. The Ramdung Peak Climbing enchants you with magnificent views of the mountains such as Everest (8848m), Melungtse (7181m), Gaurishankar (7134m) and takes you to the beautiful ice glacial Lake of Tso Rolpa which is one of the natures wonders of Nepal. At 5,930m this is a climb which is not very technical or difficult but is challenging given the strenuous nature and the remoteness of the area. This offers an unreal proximity to the Himalayas and serene nature.  

Our journey will begin in Simigaon from where we will mainly ascend and pass through the dense jungles, beautiful suspension bridges, cross fast flowing rivers and deep valleys. This trek allows for fabulous views and is suitable for anyone who aspires to walk long distances without any hints of modern luxuries. We will make our way through many Sherpa villages along this trek. The natives of this region, the Sherpa have naturally acclimatized for high altitude. With the Himalayas as their backyard, they are able to lead normal lives at such great altitudes and thus are the backbone behind any travel journeys. This trek allows for us to understand the culture and tradition of the Sherpa people and their deep-rooted relationship with the mountains. We will have allocated acclimatization day during this trek and will be guided by our guides and trekking experts along the way. This is also a chance to see the incredible flora and fauna that Nepal has to offer. The region is also a home to the elusive snow leopard and is found in almost all foothills of the mountains. Keep an eye for them during this trek also. Overall, this peak climbing is a great option to take a taste of mountaineering along with ancient culture to greet us throughout the journey.

With 15 years of experience and fluent English-speaking guides, we at Swiss Family Treks and Expedition make it our concern to give you the best hospitality service. Whether it be through the plains with thick jungles and grassland or the snowcapped mountain travel, we provide excellent transportation and accommodation facilities to our clients.
