Tashi Lapcha Trekking
Tashi Lapcha Pass Trekking (Rolwāling Himāl) is a section of the Himalaya in east-central Nepal along the Tibet border. It lies west of the Mahalangur section and east of the Langtang section. Melungtse 7181m and Melungtse II 7023m are inside Tibet and Gauri Shankar 7134m is on the border. There are some 50 additional peaks over 6000m.

Tashi Lapcha Pass The range is bounded on the south by the Rolwaling Valley which contain several small villages and Beding, the largest town in the area.A very fine but strenuous camping-style expedition can be made through the Rolwaling Himal to cross the Teshi Lapcha La (5755m) and into the Solu Khumbu. The trek must be properly equipped for extensive snow and ice work, with at least one climbing Sherpa in the party.

The trail is very well defined and used by porters and Sherpa's going up to the summer kharkas or grazing pastures at Beding.The last habitation is at Na (4180m).

The Tsho Rolpa is an awesome ice lake held back by terminal moraine.

The unmarked route goes along the Trakarding Glacier, and then climbs steeply up onto the Drolambau Glacier. The Teshi Lapcha La goes through these mountains by the foots lopes of Pachermo.The descent on the other side is steep and very rough through boulder fields. Sometimes the trail is difficult to find until you reach Thyangbo Kharka, a very lonely dwelling on the route to Thame, Namche Bazaar and Lukla.
