The northern part of the district (Khumbu) is encompassed in the Everest Natioal Parks, which was established to protect the fragile environment of this alpine region. To the eastof everest National Park is the Makalu BARUN National Park, a remote and wild stretch of mountain peaks and deep densely forested valleys. To the west is the Rolwaling valley, a well protected mocrcosm of cultures and ecology. The southern part of the district, Solu is much less frequented by tourists and can be a very rewarding destination in its own right.

Besides Mount Everest there are three other 8000 meter peaks in the region, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu and in addition numerous other peaks of lesser altitute but no less stunning. Add to this glacial lakes,rohododendron forests, native flora and fauna, traditional villages and ancient Buddhist monasteries, all go to makes this region a spectacular destination.

Overview
Tashilapcha Pass Trekking

Major Attraction: The approach trek, Dolkata to Beding could be shortened for the physically fit, as the route is not particularly rewarding (compared to other Nepali treks). The second half, Beding to Thame, including Ramdung base camp is an entirely different matter and should not be rushed, but savored as this is a spectacular region, full of atmosphere with an ambiance, part wonderment, part exhilaration with overtones of foreboding and a tinge of danger.A good three weeks trekking approaches from easy trial, moderate and ends in alpine to the TasiLapsa Pass also known as TrashiLabtsa pass, is a potential danger while in high passes. The approach trek, Dolkata to Beding could be shortened for the physically fit, as the route is not particularly rewarding (compared to other Nepali treks). The second half, Beding to Thame, including Ramdung base camp is an entirely different matter and should not be rushed, but savored as this is a spectacular region, full of atmosphere with an ambiance, part wonderment, part exhilaration with overtones of foreboding and a tinge of danger. It lies west of the Mahalangur (Mount Everest) section and east of the Langtang section. Melungtse 7181m and Melungtse II 7023m are inside Tibet and Gauri Shankar 7134m is on the border. There are some 50 additional peaks over 6000m. The preferred approach is to walk in from the bus terminus at Dolakha (near Charikot), about 7 hours from Kathmandu. The trail is very well defined and used by porters and shepherds going up to the summer kharkas or grazing pastures at Beding. There was a customs check at Jagat where the climbing permit was vaguely inspected. The last habitation is at Na (4180m). From here on in it can and will snow at any time so patience is required) which also will help with the essential acclimatisation). The TshoRolpa is an awesome ice lake held back by terminal moraine. The unmarked route goes along the Trakarding Glacier, and then climbs steeply up onto the Drolambau Glacier. It is possible to reverse the route but the climb up to the pass from the SoluKhumbu is very steep and long. A very fine but strenuous camping-style expedition can be made through the RolwalingHimal to cross the TashiLapcha La (5755m) and into the SoluKhumbu. The trek must be properly equipped for extensive snow and ice work, with at least one climbing Sherpa in the party. The net result will be very rewarding in terms of cultural exposure and visual drama. Even though you may not intend to climb the mountain, a climbing Permit will be required for Patchamo (beside the TashiLapcha) to allow access to the upper part of the valley beyond the TshoRolpa. The fee is fully refundable upon return to Kathmandu when you declare that every bit of kit you took into the area has been brought out with you. You will also require a trekking permit for the Everest National Park for the return part of the journey Splendid Holidays Treks suggested trekking time is 20 days (minimum) composed of 5 days Dolkata to Beding, 2 -3 days Beding and Nan Goan, 5 days up to the high camp near Ramdung base camp exploring and acclimatizing, 4 days to the TashiLapsa pass, 4 days exploring, at the pass and climbing Parchamo, 3 days to Namche bazaar, 2 days to Lukla. The slow approach to the TashiLapsa is to gain altitude acclaminzation. Altitude sickness is not uncommon and poses a risk on this trek. This trek is predominantly about landscapes, and expedition type portraits. There are incredible mountain sunrise and sunset opportunities. The difficulty ranges from moderate in the lowlands to strenuous along the approaches to the TashiLapsa pass requiring crampons and ice axes up the Drolambao Glacier and down the eastern exit to Thame. There is the opportunity to climb one the two tourist peaks in the area, Parchamo (6187m) and Ramdung RO (5930m). A climbing permit is then required with a fee around $350USD for up to 5 persons, plus the employment of a climbing Sherpa with a set fee of $350 plus his daily salary. Tso Rolpo Lake to Thame across the TashiLapsa Pass is really a charm of the region. A panoramic camera would be useful. Also a 16-35mm zoom, 35-70mm zoom for portraits and landscapes, and a 70-200mm zoom for details of peaks, and trek members climbing. A tripod is useful but not essential as one can find a rock on which to place the camera. A remote release cable is useful. Rolwaling Valley trek is very popular trek of Nepal. The best part of this trek is its picturesque scenery. The way of this trek goes through beautiful parts of Nepal, Sherpa, Tamang and Chhetri villages with their terraced fields, dense forests. The mountain scenery is stunning from TashiLapsa pass, from where this trek actually goes.

EVEREST HIGH PASS TREKKING
Tour Code: EHPT 11/16
Name of Tour
Overview
EVEREST HIGH PASS TREKKING

Major Attraction: This could be your first big test at around 5,400 m but the rewards at the top are absolutely amazing with Gokyo Lake, Gokyo village and the Glacier in the foreground and Mount Everest in the background. You will feel that it is the best view in the Everest region and surprisingly not many trekkers get there. Next stage is to the base of Cho La which is the access pass to Base Camp. To access the pass we crossed the glacier which is amazing in itself with 23kms of moraine built up over thousands of years. Passing ice lakes on the way to Dragnak before heading up the valley to the base of Cho la is always cold at the base (probably -5 to -10degrees) This pass is fairly difficult because of its location to the sun. It is absolutely freezing for most of the climb. At the top you will be treated to some magnificent views and slowly worked our way over the top of the glacier to start your descent. The descent from there is easy to Zhongla however the early snow could make it fairly difficult.

Overview
EVEREST BASE CAMP TREKKING (15Nights/16 Days)

Major Attraction: Past the Sagarmatha Park entrance, the trail continues to the village of Jorsale; requiring you to cross 2bridges before the steep ascent which takes up to 3hours. It is necessary to take altitude acclimatization where you might like to visit neighboring villages of Khumjung and Khunde. An activity good for this exercise is to take about 2hours walk above Namche reaching Thame, a traditional village where you could find a Buddhist Monastery (NamcheGompa). When you trek further past the valley of the ImjaKhola, you will witness the magnificent views of the mountains reaching Tengboche. PhunkiThanga is a good stop-over to refill on your stocks of food and specially water. After a long day's trek, climbers typically take a night's rest and acclimatization alongside, either on Pangboche or Dingboche. Pangboche, with all its scenic views of the trees is the place to just relax. 6hours of trekking sends you to the clusters of tea houses in Lobuche where you can mingle with most other tourists. Another 3hours to reach GorakShep where you will find a few more tea houses and a further more trek to the glaciers of Everest Base Camp. Above GorakShep is Kala Patter. A 2to3hours climb will welcome trekkers with an exquisite view of the summit of Everest 8kms to the east, while Pumori to the north.
