Between the Everest and Langtang regions is the stunning Mid-eastern range of the Himalayas; the Rolwaling valley. This is home to famous peaks such as Mt. Ghauri Shankar (7134m), Dorje Lakpa, and many others. A few miles south of the Tibetan border, it is known as one of the seven hidden valleys in the Himalayas. This is a wild and barely explored district where legendary tales of the abominable snowman, known as the "Yeti", haunt the imagination of climbers. On the slope of Rolwaling Peak itself, the famous British mountaineer, Eric Shipton, first photographed Yeti footprints in 1951.
The trek starts from Dolakha, near Charikot, an eight-hour drive from Kathmandu. There is also the choice to continue your trek by crossing Tashi Lapcha (5755m). Technical mountaineering skills and equipment are required for this incredible adventure. Trekkers also witness Tsho-Rolpa, the largest Glacier Lake in Nepal and can continue on to the Khumbu region, which links to trek routes in the Everest region. Another option is to trek to Na, a small Sherpa village, to trek back to Kathmandu. This trek requires a peak permit any of the following peaks: Ramdung, Yalung, and Pacharmo. Permits must be obtained from the Nepal Mountaineering Association through an associated member trekking company.
