The high valley of Rolwaling is located in the eastern part of Nepal, close to the Everest region, western of the Khumhu. It is also called “the grave" due to its isolated terrain, which is buried down between steep ice-giants.

Because of its remoteness, Rolwaling is still an unspoiled region where the visitors will enjoy the landscapes of majestic mountain views and beautiful waterfalls as well as the Tso Rolpa Lake and the dense and gloomy primeval forests. The trekking route leads through the remote and picturesque Sherpa, Tamang and Chhetri villages, passes along monasteries and over bridges with wonderful views.

The land is full of tales of the yeti - the mysterious snow man - and it is the place where some mountaineers arranged expeditions to hunt yetis in the past.

Trekking in the Rolwaling region is a fascinating experience.
