Rolwaling Everest Grand trek is one of the challenging and adventure pass trekking in Nepal but it gives immensely different taste for the adventure lovers.
This trek begins with a height from 2500m foot climb through Hindu villages, on the way high slopes, we are continuingly overlooking one of the many river valleys in Nepal that are equal in depth to the of the Grand Canyon. Our second day’s trek will lead us to reach our first Buddhist villages and Gompa/ Monastery. On this day we will also visit the forests change from oak to rhododendrons are covered in red, pink and occasionally white flowers in spring days. These rhododendron forests can be seen at the elevations between 6500 and 1, 2000 feet.
We can view many beautiful Passes like Tinsang La Pass (10,900 feet) from where, we get our first view of the Himalayas As well as the Chobo Bemare in Tibet is visible along with the peaks of the Rolwaling. It gives us an opportunity to enjoy with the rhododendrons from Bigu Gompa (8,200 feet). Bigu is one of the most lucrative Buddhist nunneries in Nepal. It was built in 1933, dwelled about 35 nuns in this Gompa, most of them from Sherpas community. The walls inside the gompa are lined with interlacing statues of Avalokiteswara, each with eleven heads and 1000 arms, hands and eyes.
Our next two days of the trip, leads you through the rhododendron and magnolia forests. We are sure to see group’s of monkeys in the forest crossing the several ridges between 7000 and 9000 feet and finally come to the valley of the great river Bhote Kosi. In the village of Congar (4100 feet) near Bhote Kosi, we make our campsite. As well it gives many opportunities for swimming on this trek. Going through the Bhote Kosi the valley becomes V-shaped and very rugged as you pass a beautiful waterfall on the opposite bank. You are finally able to reach in the historic trade routes to Tibet.
We have to cross the Tibet trade route and the Bhote Kosi to reach in the Rolwaling. On the way we can see an exciting suspension bridge before we begin a zigzag climb up to the village of Simagaon (6400 feet) resided by Sherpas and Tamangs. Simigaon, is basically consisted by many Buddhist chortens and mani stones, it also has a small gomba. On the way of climbing the ridges, we are able to glimpse our first close-up view of Gauri Shankar (23,442 feet), the Rolwaling’s most famous peak, as it looms above the valley of the Rolwaling.
Gauri Shankar has its own religious significance for both Hindus and Buddhis Jumbled rock escarpments sweep upwards into knife-edged and corniced ice ridges which finally merge at Gauri, in the south summit. So prominent is Gauri Shankar from the Ganges Plain that legends long claimed it to be the highest mountain in the world. The Rolwaling Sherpas say it Jomo Tseringma and throughout Buddhist Lamaism, to as far away as Sikkim, Tseringma is considered the most holy mountain of the Sherpas.
Going trhough Rolwaling valley trail, we have to join to Khumbu valley known as by world highest peak,Mt Everest, Along the way of Thame valley, we can trek continue to Renjola pass and get Gokyo.
After summit Gokyo Ri trek, we continue to Cho La (5260m'), Kala Pattar (5545m') and to Everest Base Camp (EBC).After Everest base camp, we continue to last pass Khongmala 5400m. With each step, we are rewarded with heavenly vistas including four of the world's highest summits: Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse, and Everest. These amazingly grand mountains are the identity for the villages of the Sherpa people we see tending their fields, trading their goods in the market at Namche, and herding their yaks in high alpine pastures.
