Overview

Rolwaling valley and TashiLaptsa pass is an adventure in the wonderful Rolwaling valley over the high Himalayan passes in Everest. One of the greatest adventures offers the marvelous views of Mount Gaurishankar-MelungTse and the Jugal Himal mountain range. The exciting adventure includes passing the high pass of TashiLaptsa, which is regarded as one of the highest and challenging Himalayan passes. The pass is the point in between the Rolwaling valley and the Everest region. Elevating at 5755 meters, TashiLaptsa Pass needed some technical climbing skills and the ropes to be set to cross. 
The widely popular myth of Yeti's story is associated with the Rolwaling valley. It is considered that the Rolwaling valley is the home of the mountain man Yeti. There are several stories of the Yeti in the valley and it has well spread around the globe. The myth has gained more popularity once the British photographer Eric Shrimpton has claimed a photograph of a Yeti footprint in 1956 in the slopes of Mt Gauri Shankar. Then after there are several myths and claims but none of them are verified this date.
The next interesting part of this trip is the exploration of the vibrant Sherpa villages. The unique cultures and the living styles of the Sherpa people, the excellent views of the mountains, and the diverse landscapes are the best part of the trip. In Thame village, there is a 550 years old Buddhist monastery to explore. Whereas, Namche Bazar – the Sherpa capital is one of the places to remember during the trip. Likewise, taking a scenic flight back from Lukla airport to Kathmandu is the next pick of the adventure. 
Rolwaling valley and TashiLaptsa pass trek is also a seasonal adventure. The best time to trek is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Whereas the other two seasons winter (December to February) and monsoon (June to August) are not the best times.
