RAMDUNG GO

Ramdung Go (5,925m) lies in the north east of Nepal and the approach route leads through Rolwaling, which is inhabited by the world famous Sherpa people. They are known for their climbing prowess. These communities being natives of the Himalayan regions are remarkably adapted to high altitudes. The Ramdung Go trek is popular for its stunningly beautiful alpine valley landscape.

A drive down the Arniko highway from Kathmandu leads to Barabise and the trek begins from the Barabise bazaar. The trail leads through lovely alpine forest of mostly pine and rhododendron trees. The rhododendrons are in bloom during spring. The walk through little Nepali villages surrounded by farmland and pastures is delightful. As you climb higher you encounter the Sherpa people. Here the villages have spectacular backdrops like Mt. Gaurishanker towering over the landscape.

The last Sherpa village you will encounter in the Rolwaling region is Beding. Ramdung Go is a remote peak but the only difficulty you will encounter is the altitude. Technically not a difficult climb, on this peak the most common problem is the rarefied air. From the summit of the peak you will enjoy a fascinating view of the highest mountain in the world, Mt.Everest besides the Melungtse, Gaurishanker and a string of lofty Himalayan peaks.

Usually after the ascent of a peak, the fun is over. Not so on this trek. There is further adventure in store for you. There is a high mountain pass to cross on the return journey. Tashi Laptsa Pass (5,755m) takes at least two days to cross depending on weather conditions. Then you will enter the true Sherpa country, the Khumbu. Many mountaineering Sherpas hail from this region. Mt.Everest and Lhotse also lie in the Khumbu region.

After a hike through the Thame village you arrive at the famous Namche Bazaar, which today even boasts of a pool house. On your trek back from Namche you will find yourself walking through beautiful landscape. After a day’s walk you will reach Lukla airport from where you catch a flight back to Kathmandu.
