Overview of 10 days Tsho Rolpa Trek

Tsho Rolpa Trek embodies a traverse through the central Himalayan peaks of the Rolwaling mountain ranges. It neighbors the towering Mt. Everest massifs to the east and the Mount Langtang range to the west.  The Tsho Rolpa is in the north-eastern vicinity of the Dolakha district, Bagmati Province, Nepal.

10 Days Tsho Rolpa Lake sits at the plinth of the Rolwaling mountains, encircling an area of 1.65 kilometers. White, lofty peaks surround it at an altitude of 4540 meters. Tsho Rolpa’s literal translation in the Sherpa dialect means “Lake of Rolwaling Valley.” Locals call this Lake Chhuygima Pokhari for its color-changing water body. The Rolwaling region, with its glacial and River-cut valleys, has religious significance for Hindus and Buddhists alike.

The Trek to Tsho Rolpa is an amusing escapade that follows the Tama Koshi River to its origin. You will encounter the diverse flora and fauna of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area in this traverse. Additionally, small hamlets of Sherpa people who practice Tibetan Buddhism are another delicacy of this adventure.

Rolwaling mountain range features majestic mountains like Gauri Shankar (7,134 m), Melungtse (7,181 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m), Tashi Lapcha Peak (5,761 m), and Yalung Ri (5,630 m). These peaks will keep your escapade to Tsho Rolpa Lake, filled with unmatched beauty and astounding vistas. The trek’s highest point is Tsho Rolpa Lake at 4540 meters.

Tsho Rolpa Trekking Route is an isolated land mass not visited by many people. These highlands have long been hidden from the trekking industry in Nepal. This makes the topography and atmosphere of the area authentic and still preserved. If you are looking for an off-the-beaten-beaten trek in Nepal, the trek to Rolwaling Valley’s Tsho Rolpa Lake could be the one for you.

We begin our trek at the base of Rolwaling Valley, at an altitude of 2020 meters at Simigaun. Furthermore, the route then elevates, passing through small Sherpa villages beside the raging Tama Koshi River. Your journey is filled with small tea shops all along the way. Mostly, this trek entails a wide array of geological distributions.

You will traverse tropical and subtropical forests for the first few days of your trek. As you ascend above 4000 meters at Bedding, Himalayan valleys appear. Then, semi-alpine and alpine terrain dominate the trekking trail, with high mountains surrounding it.

Most areas beyond Bedding are filled with rocky landslides, glacial moraines, glacial lakes, glaciers, highpasses, and river streams originating from Rolwaling glaciers. Tsho Rolpa Lake is a turquoise lake between the gigantic mountains. Also, It is encoded by Langdung Himal to the north, Rolwaling glaciers to its east, and the vast Gaurishankar Conservation Area to the south.

Its location is perfect for anyone looking for a remote gateway from commercial trekking trails. Trekking Information of Tsho Rolpa is readily available with Boundless Adventures. Please inquire with us for further information.

The Trekking Map provides a detailed insight into the trail detail. The journey begins from Kathmandu and heads east towards Dolakha district, following the Araniko Highway. From the Dolakha district headquarters, Charikot, we descend to the Tamakoshi River and follow the river bed to reach the lake.

Where is the Tsho Rolpa Route Located?

Tsho Rolpa route is in Rowling Valley of Dolakha district in Nepal. Tsho Rolpa lies east of the Langtang region and west of the Khumbu region. The village lies under the Gaurishanker Village Development Committee and within the Gaurishankar Conservation area. The trekking route to Tsho Rolpa begins from Chhetchhet, a 1525m/ 5003ft sherpa village. Then the trek goes towards Dongang at 2790m/ 9153ft.

From Dongang the trek moves towards the village of Beding, a large settlement of rowling (Sherpa village) at 3692m/ 12113ft. Nagaon is another of the oldest settlements you’ll pass on the route to Tsho Rolpa at 4180m/ 13714ft. After Nagoan, you’ll get to your destination and return through the same path.

Geography and Landscape

Rolwaling Valley, which encapsulates Tsho Rolpa Lake, has dramatic and roughened terrain. The high-altitude landscape of the region creates an environment that is remote and limitedly accessible. Your trekking to Tsho Rolpa first follows the whitewater Himalayan River, Tamakoshi. The river basin of Tamakoshi is filled with lush green and dense tropical forests.

As we delve deeper into the valley, the landscape is dominated by rocky mountains, deep valleys, wide river basins, rocky landslides, and steep ridges. The Rolwaling area is at the core heart of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area. This location has seen various floral diversity, including rhododendrons, oak, pine, and fir trees. Furthermore, the dense forests here are home to Himalayan tahr, snow leopard, red panda, and numerous bird species.

Essential Information - 10 days Tsho Rolpa Trek

Best Season For Tsho Rolpa Trek

When choosing the best season for the Tsho Rolpa trek, factors such as weather conditions, trail conditions, and personal preferences should be considered. Considering all these factors, spring (March, April, and May) and autumn (September, October, and November) are widely appreciated by trekkers and regarded as the best seasons.

While spring and autumn are the finest and most desired, summer is also becoming popular for the Tsho Rolpa trek. Spring and autumn have favorable weather conditions. The summer also comes with sunny days, making it an ideal season for trekking. The heavy rainfall during summer made it less famous trekking time before, but the situation is different now due to global warming.

Data of Temperature and Weather during the Trekking

             Seasons Day time Temperature Night time Temperature
              Spring              10°C to 15°C           -5°C to 5°C
             Autumn              10°C to 20°C             0°C to 10°C
             Winter              0°C -to 10°C              -10°C to 0°C
            Summer             15°C to 25°C               5°C to 15°C

The weather pattern around the year in Nepal differs. Also, the weather pattern at lower elevations differs from that at higher elevations. The spring months are warmer and milder, melting the snow and revealing green grassland and lush forests. The autumn months provide a vibrant environment with a comfortable and stable weather pattern. But, summer and winter are the harshest, with summer bringing in heavy rain showers and winter characterized by heavy snowfall in higher altitude areas.

Accommodations in Trekking

Lodging is in a teahouse. Like mountain lodges in the Alps, teahouses are spread along the trail, flogging. You will have a teahouse facility from the initial point of the trek, Simigaun, to the final point, Na Village. Teahouses are wooden structures providing basic lodging facilities. The teahouses on various treks in Nepal are pretty similar. Also, the teahouse rooms usually consist of single, double, and triple beds. Mattresses, quilts, pillows, and blankets will be provided. Attached bathrooms are not available in all teahouses and are optional. Wi-Fi and hot showers are available in most tea houses but cost extra.

Meals

You have multiple meal options in Tsho Rolpa Trek. Since this is teahouse trekking, a cook will be available at every stop. The food options range from Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan dishes. “Dal Bhaat” is a Nepalese meal most preferred during the trek. It includes a portion each of rice, lentil soup, vegetable curry, and pickle.

Furthermore, this dish is nutritious and filling for your stomach. During the trek, being in the best possible health condition is paramount. We don’t recommend eating meat products or canned meat during your trek. Pastas, mashed potatoes, French fries, noodles, and soup are available in most teahouses. The breakfast menu includes Tibetan bread, noodles, pancakes, oatmeal, and others. If you have unique meal preferences, it is advised to inform us in advance.

Permits for Trekking

The Rolwaling region, including the area of the trek, comes under the Gaurishankar Conservation Area. You need to obtain a conservation area permit for this trek. The Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit costs NPR 3000 (approximately $25). A TIMS card is also required for this trek, which costs NPR 2,000 (approximately $15). Both of these permits can be obtained in Kathmandu. Your trekking agent can assist with obtaining these permits before your travel dates.

Guide

As of April 2023, FITs, or solo independent trekkers, cannot travel without a trekking guide in Nepal. A professional trekking guide can assist you in many ways. Navigation, safety, guidance, and emergency evacuation are subject matters that a trekking guide will help you in. At Boundless Adventures, we provide a registered trekking guide with years of experience. Also, our guides are local to the trekking destination and thoroughly know the terrain, culture, pathways, and others. Also, they have basic first aid training in case of any uncertain events.

  • Two people to 3 people can get a Car
  • Four to 7 people will get a Jeep or van.
  • Seven to 15 People will get Hiace

Is Tsho Rolpa Trek difficult?

Trekking in Tsho Rolpa is an easy-going, smooth trek on gradually elevating terrain. However, the highest point on the trek you’ll get is at 4550 m/14927 ft above sea level, so there is a shallow risk of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Still, the Tsho Rolpa trek is suitable for beginner and first-time trekkers with families, as it is comfortable even for senior citizens and children.

The landmass surrounding Tsho Rolpa Lake and Rolwaling Valley consists of a traverse along the river banks. Additionally, you must walk for 4 to 5 hours daily during the traverse. Therefore, proper acclimatization and planning are necessary before the trek to Tsho Rolpa. Furthermore, trekkers should walk slowly while ascending and descending. Hiring an experienced guide makes your overall experience more manageable and safe.

All in all, trekking to Tsho Rolpa is easily accessible, but paying attention to your body and choosing an itinerary plan with acclimatization helps reduce the chance of any problem occurring during the trek. Furthermore, staying hydrated is necessary.

Trekking Route

The Trekking Route has quaint nature, amusing geography, distinct culture, and towering mountains. Per the Tsho Rolpa Trek itinerary provided by Boundless Adventures, we start our journey from Kathmandu. We head eastbound, following the Araniko Highway to Khadichaur.

Leaving the highway, we diverge from here and head towards the district headquarters of Dolakha district, Charikot. From Charikot, we descend towards the raging Tamakoshi River. From Tamakoshi Bridge, we take the river pathway for another 2 hours to reach ChetChet.

This will be our starting point for the trek. We follow further above the river basin via various villages along the way. The trail traverses through small hamlets located beside the Tamakoshi River. Simigaun, Dongang, Bedding, and Na are the villages you will stay at before reaching Tsho Rolpa Lake at 4540 meters. We return and retrace our footsteps to Kathmandu, ending our journey.

People and Culture

Sherpa people have long inhabited the vicinity of Rolwaling Valley. The Rolwaling region neighbors the Solukhumbu district to its east. Sherpa people migrated to the highlands of these areas long ago. “The customary belief system followed by these communities is Tibetan Buddhism.” You can see various Tibetan monuments scattered along the trekking trail. You will traverse numerous Mani walls, shortens, monasteries, and prayer flags along the trekking route.

Gaurishankar Conservation Area

Gaurishankar Conservation Area in Nepal encompasses most of the Rolwaling region in Nepal. The areas surrounding Gaurishankar Himal and others in its range are included. The conservation area is filled with natural treasures from Dolakha districts. It adjoins Sagarmatha National Park to the east and Langtang National Park to the south.

Snow leopards, red pandas, Himalayan tahr, Himalayan black bear, Himalayan monal, and clouded leopards are among the significant animals in the area. This conservation area is lowlands filled with subtropical, temperate, and Alpine meadows, rhododendrons, and bamboo Groves—a total of 2179 square kilometers.

Rolwaling High Glacial Lake

Apart from the pristine Tsho Rolpa Lake, numerous other glacial lakes exist in the Rolwaling region. The area is filled with towering Himalayan mountains that stay shimmering white with snow throughout the year.

Sitting in the lap of these mountains are numerous glacial lakes that change their shape and outlook every year. To name a few, Tsho Rolpa Lake (4540 m), Chh Gayuma Lake (4,000 m), Yalung Ri Lake, and Tarkarding Glacier Lake are among the popular ones. Numerous other unnamed regional lakes are hidden in the deep Rolwaling valleys.

Gaurishankar Himal

The highest within the Rolwaling range is Mt. Gaurishankar, which measures 7,134 meters. Hindus consider Gaurishankar one of the sacred mountains of Lord Shiva and his wife, Parvati. The two pinnacles of the mountain have long been worshiped as the forms of these Hindu deities.

Buddhist people also have a divine reverence for Gaurishankar as a traditional belief. Additionally, this mountain portrays the shape of a woman sleeping, making it alluring for others.

Bucket list Trekking in Tsho Rolpa

Trekking in Tsho Rolpa was on my bucket list as its name, “Rowling Vally,” drew my attention. I did my Everest Base Camp trek in April 2022 with Boundless Adventure and had to leave my home country. I returned by saying this is the beginning of my trekking journey in Nepal, and I’ll be back to Mr. Dambar Khaka, and he replied, smiling, “Oh, we are always ready to welcome you with an open heart.”.

As promised, on September 20, 2023, I did my Tsho Rolpa trek with my cousin with Boundless Adventure. Trekking in the Rowling Valley felt like finding myself due to its peaceful environment. We stayed in the local tea houses, where we could stay like locals.

The journey on Tsho Rolpa was incredible, providing insight into unique flora and fauna. The view of the mountains smiling at us and welcoming us is still in my heart. I liked the service of Boundless Adventure on my EBC trek, as they prioritized our safety first. That’s why I chose them for my second trek. I would choose it for future journeys and recommend it to others.

Tsho Rolpa was my first trekking experience.

Trekking in Tsho Rolpa with Boundless Adventure is probably the best experience of my life. The Tsho Rolpa was my first trekking experience. I was worried about whether I could do the high-altitude trek on my first experience or not, but the support of Boundless Adventure encouraged me to succeed. I trekked with my sibling; he was experienced, so I was a little worried at first, but the crew members of Boundless Adventure took care of us so well.

From the start of our journey to the end, we had a guide who helped us through our tough walk. Mr. Dambar ensured we were comfortable by messaging and calling us. The support and stunning landscapes my eyes felt the first time were amazing. Being a first-time trekker, I smoothly completed my trek in Tsho Rolpa, and it was only possible due to the care and support of Boundless Adventure and my cousin.

Again, thank the Boundless Adventure team and my cousin’s side for good service and management.

I was feeling worn out by my daily routine and yearned for a change of scenery. As I had only a limited amount of time, I recalled Boundless Adventure. I had a good rapport with the company’s managing director, Dambar Khadka, so I contacted him via WhatsApp and confided in him about what was happening in my life.

He suggested different trekking and tour destinations; I found the Tsho Rolpa trek more enjoyable among them. As per my preference, Mr. Dambar customized my itinerary. On my arrival, the crew member welcomed me to the airport. I had a guide by my side throughout my journey. I feel relaxed and have forgotten all my troubles since stepping into the Tsho Rolpa region. The valley was precisely what I was searching for a less crowded and more peaceful place.

I especially wanted to thank Dr.Dambar Khdka for listening to my troubles and suggesting the Tsho Rolpa trek and all the members of his company’s team who supported me throughout the journey.
