Crossing from Rolwaling to Everest Base Camp, via the high passes of Tashi Lapsa, Renjo and Cho La.

We offer you to reach the heights of the Everest region, through the less touristic valley of Rolwaling. A crossing both somptuous and authentic of the Sherpa country.
Before reaching the glacial valleys and approaching the grace of pristine peaks, our route progress along the Tama Koshi Valley, passing through Brahman, Chettri and Tamang villages. Simigaon is a gateway to Rolwaling Valley. We are a few kilometres far from the Tibetan border, in Buddhist land, under the benevolence of Gauri Shanker who meets the sky at 7146 m high. As we progress, the reliefs stretch vertically.
We approach Mount Everest, facing the turquoise lakes of Gokyo, the view of the summits is spectacular. The giants of the planet are here: Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest, Cholaste and Tawachee.
The ascent to Kala Pattar, at an altitude of 5 545m, brings us closer to this ice-wall amphitheatre.
Eyes dazzled by the magic of the Himalayas, we then descend from the Sherpa country through the valley of Solu Khumbu to Lukla
