Parchemo & 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.
