Ramdung Peak Climbing – This expedition combines an ascent of Ramdung Peak (5925m) with a trek through the Rolwaling Valley and the Khumbu Valley, or the Everest region. The ascent and the trek are both excellent challenges for experienced trekkers and mountain climbers and introduce you to incredible views, glacial lakes, Sherpa culture and both off-the-beaten-path and well-loved trekking trails.
Highlights of Climbing Ramdung Peak
Ramdung Peak is technically straightforward but does require good planning and plenty of training and acclimatization time before attempting the summit. As well as the peak, the TashiLapsa Pass is very challenging.
The Route Followed
This climbing expedition follows much of the same route as the Rolwaling Valley trek but incorporates the peak summit too.
This trek starts with a day’s drive to Singati, via Dolakha and Charikot, northeast of Kathmandu and to the edge of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area. Start trekking the next day, following a river, through the flat and forested terrain. The ascent doesn’t really begin until the second half of the second day when you reach the foot of Daldung La (2850m).
Follow the Rolwaling River up to the valley. Views of Gaurishankar (7134m) will start to appear ahead of you. The path becomes quite flat again, but the trekking days become shorter as you enter higher elevations, and time will be made for acclimatization and rest days.
Spend a day training for the mountain climb, refreshing your skills and practicing with your gear, before trekking to Ramdung Base Camp (5040m). Head towards the Ramdung Glacier and the Ramdung High Camp (5350m), where you will stay the night before pushing to the summit very early in the morning the next day. The peak is at 5925m so you can’t stay very long at the top, but there will be time to catch the glorious views before descending back to Base Camp.
After some much-needed rest, head towards TshoRolpa Lake (4580m). This is one of the biggest glacial lakes in Nepal and has become considerably bigger over the last few decades because of glacial melting. It is breathtakingly beautiful, with crystal clear waters and surrounded by snow-capped peaks. This trip includes full of camping trek, a first part of the trek is more remote and will require camping with full supporters cook, helpers and porters.
