High in the Khumbu valley , close to Everest and closer still to the precipitous south face of Lhotse, the aptly named Island Peak (6189m) rises above a tangled knot of glaciated valleys. With its outrageous location and elegant summit ridge, this peak has been a favorite with Nepal Guide Info team leaders and clients for 2 decades. Trekking via Namche Bazaar and Thagboche, we follow the Everest Base Camp trail to Lobuche beside the Khumbu glacier. As part of our acclimatization programmer we visit Everest Base Camp and make an ascent of the classic viewpoint of Kala Pattar, where we enjoy some of the finest views of the world’s highest peak. Then crossing the Khumbu Glacier, we climb up to the Kongma La which gives access to the valley of the Imja Khola and the summer grazing settlement of Chhukung. From here we move up to the base camp for our main objective, Island Peak. The ascent of this 6000 metre peak in the shadow of the huge Lhotse face is an ‘alpine experience’ in every sense, involving fine climbing in exposed situations among breathtaking scenery. This is one of the best of all Nepalese adventures.
  • The best time to do the Rolwaling Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer the best weather and clear mountain views.

  • The highest point of the Rolwaling Trek is the Tashi Lapcha Pass, which stands at an altitude of approximately 5,755 meters (18,881 feet).

  • While it is not mandatory to hire a guide and porter for the trek, it is highly recommended, especially for inexperienced trekkers. A guide can help navigate the route, provide valuable information about the area, and ensure your safety. A porter can help carry your gear, making the trek more enjoyable.

  • Accommodation during the Rolwaling Trek is basic, with teahouses and lodges offering simple rooms with shared bathrooms. The quality of accommodation can vary, but expect basic amenities such as a bed and blankets.

  • Yes, altitude sickness can be a concern on the Rolwaling Trek, especially when crossing high mountain passes. It is important to acclimatize properly, stay hydrated, and listen to your body’s signals. If you experience severe symptoms of altitude sickness, it is advisable to descend to a lower altitude immediately.
