If you want to see the view of 50 peaks, ranging 6,000m, don’t give up, what you want to see can be done through the Rolwaling Trek in Rolwaling Valley. The valley lies between the classic Everest Region and the Langtang Region, the Tibet of Nepal, and in front of this valley, there is a mountain named Gauri Shankar (7,145m) which has a religious significance to the Hindus. The sunrise over Gauri Shankar is inspiring, and the valley has different ingredients or various recipes for the trekkers who want to know from close what the alpine lakes are in addition to hanging glaciers. The high pasture that it has is another highlight where you see the animals grazing, while the cascade of waterfalls and the perfect view of the snow-covered mountains will make you stare at them frequently, stopping at one place for a while before heading to another spot. Also, you come across the region which has the rich biodiversity of the floras and the faunas. At the same time, you might see the endangered species. The region is also a home to Yeti which was spotted by the trekkers many times.
The trekking trail of the Rolwaling Trek also runs by the Rolwaling River and also takes you to the last village of this valley and creates an opportunity for you to explore the Yalung La Region which has spectacular glacial fields and the stunning glacial lake named Tsho-Rolpa, at the same time, the nature of the trekking trail is difficult and is not intended for families who want to do an easy trek. The trekking route also goes by the Trakarding Glacier and climbs up and heads to the Drolambau Glacier, and this is also the route that offers an excellent view of the mountains, such as Makalu, Everest, Rolwaling, Pachermo, and Ramdung.
