It is located in the south of the Na in the upper Rolwaling valley. Pass around Yalunga La gives access to the Rowling from the south through Khare Khola. These peaks were first discovered by the Scottish Himalayan expedition led by Bill Murray in 1952.Ramdung

peak climbing is one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal. you can explore the majestic mountain views and beautiful waterfalls, Tso Rolpa Lake, monasteries Gumba, and landscapes. Therefore, the trail leads through the remote and beautiful picturesque Sherpa, Tamang, and Chhetri village. and through the dense, gloomy primeval forest and overbroad bridge with wonderful views. This trekking offers you the marvelous vista of the snowcapped mountains including Gauri Shankar, Melungtse, and Tashi Peak. Not only the outstanding mountain views.  but also gives you an opportunity to observe the local culture, customs, and lifestyle.  moreover, it is inhabited by the Sherpa community and a great chance to observe their way of life and tradition.

Ramdung trekking peak is not very high. But, the start of the trekking peak from Na covers a good distance. even, most of the parties require two high camps for the summit. We set up the base camp at 4900 meters below the Yalung La. Climbing the high camp on the broad glacier slopes to the east of the pass. basically, Ascend the slopes of the Ramdung Glacier southwest of the subsidiary peak onto a saddle at the junction with the Yalung Glacier (5,650m). From a yalung la, it takes about 4 and a half hours to climb to the top, but sometimes, depending on snow conditions.

Itinerary

We will move early in the morning to Gonghar as the highways in Nepal are infamous for its traffic and are often under repair due to rainfall and landslides.  Our path will be crossed with lush green hills, forests, fast rivers and occasional glimpses of Himalayas. The trek to Simigaon runs through suspension bridges, thick jungles, and small tea shops. Overnight in Simigaon.

As we move, we will be passing through a few Sherpa settlements and if we have the clear sunny day we will be blessed with an incredible view of Gaurishankar (7,134m) towering above the Rolwaling valley. The rocky trail passes through a wooded ridge followed by dense pine forests with plenty of flora and fauna as we descend to Rolwaling river and reach Dongang. Overnight in Dongang.

Ascending uphill through rhododendron forests and keeping the Rolwaling River to our side, we move further up into the deep valleys of this region. With Gaurishankar (7134m) keeping us company, we will reach a flat terrain with terraced farming. Crossing this we will enter a beautiful Sherpa village called Beding situated right next to the river. Overnight in Beding.

We will stay at Beding today to acclimatize. Acclimatizing is key for a successful trek and its importance cannot be stressed enough. We will make short treks around the region to view Gaurishankar (7134) and other peaks which are plenty in this region. We also get to closely observe the lifestyle of the inhabitants during the exploration. Overnight in Beding.

Going up next to the river the trek takes to explore the surrounding Yalung glacier today. An open space this place has some livestock grazing in its fields and other flora and fauna can be witnessed too. With panoramic views of the mountains in front of us, we reach the Sherpa village of Na. It is also one of the oldest known settlements in this region of the country. Overnight in Na.

Walking on snow we will make our way to the Base Camp which will take around 5 hours.  The trek offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and already makes you ecstatic with the thought of summiting the Ramdung Go Peak. Multiple tents can be seen here, thanks to other expeditions. We can also get views of the surrounding glaciers like Yalung, Trakarding and Ramdung glaciers. Overnight in Base Camp 

We wake up early in the morning and enjoy the sunrise as the radiant light reflects on the white snow capped mountains. We will trek past Ramding La pass (5665m) which offers enchanting views of the panoramic mountain ranges. As we reach the High camp, excitement grows about the summit the next day. We will also be briefed by the guides on the do and don’t on the climb to the peak. 

Getting up before dawn, we will make our way to the summit. Trekking for a good 7 hours on a steep rocky platform we will reach the top.  A strenuous walk, once we reach the top we will witness an absolutely mind-numbing view which stalls every one of our senses. We will be blessed with views of Everest (8,848m), Gaurishankar (7,134m), Melungtse (7,181m), numerous other mountain ranges and a lot of glaciers. The accomplishment of climbing this peak will leave us with a feeling of overwhelming joy. After taking some pictures, we will start our descent to Tso Rolpa which is a beautiful high altitude glacial lake and also gives a wonderful view of the Langtang Himal (7227m), Pachermo Himal (6,273m). During the night time, we will be able to see beautiful stars in the sky and is a perfect time for astrophotography.  Overnight at tented camp.

Through similar paths, we will make our way back to Beding with magnificent views of Rolwaling Himalayan range, Pachermo (6273m) and a mountain fondly called as Tilicho’s brother. With the images of Tso Rolpa still fresh in our head, we will reach Beding and give much-required rest to our tired legs.  Overnight in Beding.

Waking up in the morning, we can begin to recall our experiences of the precious days. Bidding farewell to the trail we previously made an ascent, we head to Daldung La after taking a different route from Thangthing Kharka. We will walk through trials with much foliage and dense bushes. There are many rhododendron trees paving the way and many varieties of birds and animals can be seen thriving in their habitation.  Overnight in Daldung La.

From Daldung, we will lose considerable altitude and make our way to Manthali. Headquarter of Ramechhap district, it is a beautiful valley cut by the Tamakoshi River and is a big town compared to the ones we went through in our trek. This also marks the end of our trek in the beautiful Rolwaling region. Overnight in Manthali. 

Today’s drive is a long one and can worsen given the state of traffic. With beautiful views of the hills, jungles, occasional mountains and rivers we will make our way to Kathmandu and reach the hotel. After that, we will take a much-needed rest for the day. You can stroll around the areas later this day. Overnight at a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu.

Today, we will spend our time relaxing and shopping for souvenirs in the city. Filled with little alleyways and gullies, numerous hours can be spent in the little cozy shops.

Accomodation & meal

ACCOMMODATION

In a standard category hotel (base: double room) in Kathmandu and Pokhara, during the rest of the trip in a tent (3-person tents for 2 people) or in a lodge depending on the trip. The lodges in Nepal are very comfortable random. In general, conditions are quite good around the Annapurnas and the Everest region. On the other hand, in Mustang, in the Manaslu,  Tsum valley, and in the region of Kangchanjung or Makalu, they can be very rudimentary to the point of being a dormitory sometimes even a kitchen. lodges can look like a refuge or sometimes a bed and breakfast from home. Most of the time it is a family house with double, triple, or dormitory rooms. Toilets and showers are always separate.

MEAL

In the cities, many restaurants allow us to discover the typical local cuisine. Meat is scarce in the high mountain, the Nepalese are generally vegetarians. The basic ingredients are rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, vegetables. Snacks are included during the trek (cereal bars, dried fruits, etc.).

For camping trek accommodation: during the trek, breakfasts and evening meals are prepared by the kitchen team. They are taken under the mess tent. Depending on the profile of the stages (length of the day’s walk and/or presence of water), midday snacks will be served hot or cold in the form of picnics.

For tea house trek accommodation: meals are prepared by the cooks of the lodge and are taken in the dining room. Here is a typical one-day menu:

  • breakfast: eggs, toast or chapati, or Tibetan bread or pancakes, or pancakes, butter/jam, tea or coffee
  • lunch: the main course, tea or coffee.
  • dinner: soup, main course, fruit (fresh or canned), tea or coffee

NB: Hindus and Buddhists are most often vegetarians. We, therefore, eat very little meat or fish. The dishes are pasta, rice, potatoes, lentils, etc.

DRINKS: during the trek, tea is served with meals (two cups of tea per meal). Additional cups of tea and other beverages, including mineral water, are the responsibility of the participants.
