Rolwaling trek is the best trek with an outstanding view of The Himalayas that lies along the north-east of Kathmandu valley. This trek forms the northern border of a wild, beautiful, and seldom-frequented valley below a string of some 50 peaks all over 6000m. It is crowned by the awesome two peaks of Gaurishankar (7,145m) on the border and Other peaks of Melungtse 1(7181m) and II (7023m) in Tibet China. This valley lies in between the Langtang Himalayan range and the Khumbu Himalayan range.

Rolwaling trek contains several small villages, the largest at Beding, and is fed by the Rolwaling Khola and its numerous tributaries. This area was declared as the Conservation area in 2010 as Gaurishankar Conservation Area. This conservation area covers 2179 square Kilometers. It is home to about 60,000 people, the largest group being Tamangs followed by Sherpas and Chhetris.

Our 12-day Rolwaling trek begins from Kathmandu with a scenic drive passing rolling green hills and views of white shimmering mountains along the 106km friendship highway towards Singati. This trek starts from here with footpath undulates, often steeply, between broad ridges and river crossings to link picturesque Chhetri, Tamang, and Sherpa villages. There are lots of suspension bridges across impressive gorges that shorten the climbs. The Rolwaling Trekking trail follows the beautiful rhododendron forest, oak trees, and pine forests interspersed with terraced fields around the villages. The top of the Daldung La (3900m) Offers magnificent views of Gaurishankar and its satellite peaks.

Beyond Na, the last kharka is the magnificent Tsho Rolpa. This, Tsho Rolpa lake is a very good example of the global warming effect in the Himalayas. Before this lake, it used to be a glacier and by the time it malted, and become a huge ice lake. Melting glaciers could cause the moraine to burst: causing havoc downstream. The government has to permanently dam the lake and a siren has been added in every village for pre-information of bursting the lake. After visiting this beautiful Rolwaling valley we head down to the Singati by following the same trail to Singati and driving back to Kathmandu.

Rolwaling trek is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather.  During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. The Rolwaling Trek requires moderate fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the trek with complete management. Please contact us to finish your Rolwaling trek with our ranger team.

Essential Information


The Rolwaling Trek Package includes accommodation in the cost.  This accommodation is included only during the set itinerary.  While in Kathmandu, we provide a 2/3-star hotel for you.  During the trek, we will spend our nights in local teahouses with local people. our guides will pick the best lodge for you to stay in based on their experience as well as room availability.  During high trekking season, you may have to share a room with a same-sex trekker from another group.  Our company provides you with a sleeping bag for this trek. 


Nepal has a wide variety of food and it is easy to cater to your needs.  If you are a vegetarian/vegan, gluten or lactose-free, we are able to work around that if you let us know ahead of time.  During your time in the hotel in Kathmandu, your breakfast is included.  Lunch and dinner must be covered on your own.  On the trek, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided in the local teahouse. The food from the mountain is very fresh and hygienic. All the vegetable is grown in their garden without using any antibiotic, grown with the fresh Himalayan Breeze.

Guide & Porters

A government-licensed guide will lead our Rolwaling Trek. our guides have tremendous experience on the trails and are passionate about the trekking industry.  Our guides and porters are dedicated to making your experience of trekking in Nepal a memorable one.  If there is any worry during your trek, our guides will address it.  Your safety is our number one priority.  For groups of more than six people, there will be two guides. For teahouse treks, there will be one porter for every two trekkers.


As many of our treks lead us high into the Himalayas, it is necessary to let our bodies sufficiently get used to the altitude.  These treks have two acclimatization days built into the itinerary.  It is best to take it slow to prevent altitude sickness.  The level of fitness necessary for our treks varies depending on the trek.  On average, expect to walk an average of 5-6 hours per day while on the trial.  Generally, the treks can be done with an average level of fitness.  More important than fitness or experience is one’s personal determination and positive attitude toward finishing and enjoying the trek.

Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek.  We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control.  In case of a medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance.  You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country.  Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains. 

Best Time to Travel

The peak seasons for traveling in Nepal are during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November).  These times provide the best scenery and clearest skies, but of course, they are a little more crowded than the off-season.  It is possible to trek during the Winter (December to February), but you will face cold temperatures.  It is also possible to trek during the monsoon season (June to August), though the views will likely be covered by clouds and there is a high chance of rainfall.
