Parchemo and the Rolwaling Valley

Trek from Rolwaling to Khumbu  |  27 days

The Rolwaling Valley runs east-west  between the Tamba Kosi and the Khumbu Himal, close to the Tibetan border. Parchemo (6,187m) rises above the Tesi Lapcha pass (5,750m) which connects Rolwaling with Khumbu. Being able to cross this tough pass, one of the finest watershed crossings in the Himalayas, is really something special for the adventurer as it was previously closed to foreigners. The descent through Thame, Namche Bazaar and the other Sherpa villages is a delightful way to end the journey.

Clients’ comments

“Excellent drivers, hotels were just wonderful, our holiday experience was just excellent. When we wanted to change our room in Kathmandu you arranged it quickly and efficiently”.   

Carole and Jacqui Young, India and Nepal


“I had three priorities — to see Namche Bazaar, to visit the Hillary School and to get views of Everest. Three out of three. Mission accomplished! The best decision I made was to travel alone.”
