Khumbu to Rolwaling through Tashi Lapsa

In april, I will trek from Jiri to EBC, three passes (Renjo La, Cho La, Kongma La) and want to end my trek in Bharabise passing to Rolwaling through Tashi Lapsa.

I plan to walk more than one month, to carry my backpack (except for Tashi Lapsa part) and to have a guide from Thame to Bharabise.

The crossing of Tashi Lapsa requires guide (with rope, crampons…), nights camping (at least 2 nights) and special trekking permit (including Pachermo Peak even if I don’t plan to go up to the peak).

I’m looking for one (or two maximum) partner to, at least, share the part from Thame to Bharabise (around 9 days walking). I will start in Jiri march 29th 2015 and from Thame april 21.

I will be acclimatized (as walked 3 passes before).

The cost if we are two will be around 800$ per person from Thame to Bharabise including guide, porter, trekking permit for Pachermo, lodging (camping, lodge, tea house).

Arrival in Khatmandu : march 25th
Departure from Charikot, walking through Chordung Peak to Jiri and the to Namche with side trips (Pikey Peak…) : march 28th
Departure from Namche Bazaar for 3 passes (including Ama Dablam Base Camp, Chukung Ri, Gokyo Ri and up to Gokyo lakes…) : april 8th
Departure from Thame to Rolwaling : april 21th
Departure from Nepal : may 4

I’m 49 years old. I’m quite trained. I’m doing ski touring in Pyrenees mountain, running (3h18 in New York City marathon).
I’ve been to Nepal in 2013, walking 40 days around Manaslu (with Tsum valley), Annapurna and Annapurna Base Camp and Mardi Himal Trek (information on this trek and long walkings done in

I usually walk longer days and a bit faster than average trekkers (but nothing exceptional).

I’m french, spanish and english speaking.

  1. Hello Jean-Marc

    I am planning close to the exact same trek. And also looking for a partner to share a guide over Trashi Labsta. I am currently in Kathmandu. Please send me a message if you are still looking for a partner. I have mountain and wilderness experience. I also have all my own gear.

  2. Hi there, I have been trekking in Nepal for many years… you don t need a guide for Rolwaling.. we are old enough to do without babysitters…. would love to join you if you can get rid of the guide and the associated unnecessary costs…

  3. Hi, How did this trip go? I was considering doing something similar, but I’ve only just started my research. How easy was it to find a guide in Thame? Thanks!
