Start and end in Kathmandu, the tour GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass is a guided trekking trip that takes 28 days. You will travel through Gokyo, Machhermo, Taranga and 13 other destinations in Nepal. GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

This is the third stage of our GHT trek with highlights including stunning views of Mount Everest from the picturesque Gokyo Lakes and crossings of the Renjo La and challenging Tashi Labsta pass.. This stage of our GHT trek begins on the spectacular trail to the Gokyo valley for views of Mt Everest (8848m) from Gokyo Ri and crossing the stunning Renjo La. The challenging approach to the glaciated Tashi Labsta Pass (5760m) from Thame is as magnificent as it is demanding but the effort is rewarded with fantastic mountain vistas. After crossing two immense glaciers the descent of the Rolwaling valley through picturesque Sherpa villages is a great introduction for the equally hospitable Gurung and Tamang villages. The final challenge is a section of wild ridge-top rhododendron forests before descending to the nunnery at Bigu Gompa and transferring by road to Kathmandu.
During this trek there will be sections where the trail is very rugged or ill-defined. Space in some camp sites will also be very limited. It may be necessary to make changes to the itinerary at any time due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather, snow or trail conditions, river water levels, or group movement. Your trip leader will advise any changes should this occur. All participants on the GHT should be flexible and open minded. The GHT should be seen as exploratory in the true sense of the word.

“The Great Patagonian Traverse was a fantastic trip with a good humoured, supportive and energetic group led by an experienced and skilled problem-solving guide. Every day brought new locations and experiences and a chance to learn about the landscape, plants, animals and bird life and sometimes the history and economy of the regions. Routines were reasonable, and necessary variations of schedule were explained as they arose. Advance planning and fitness training paid off as did following the equipment requirements and researching blogs and experience of past trekkers.”

“Words can't justify how wonderful this trip was. It was my first overseas trip to a place that has held wonder for me since a very young age. The weather was perfect, which only enhanced the magnificent scenery. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. All the amenities were comfortable and clean. The memories of this trek will stay with me for ever.”

“The trip was brilliant! Botswana is a wonderful country with lovely people and a vast variety of wildlife that can be observed in close proximity, without the crowds usually present at other destinations. The vehicle was very comfortable (plenty of leg room), and so were the tents (easy to assemble), The guide was highly skilled and experienced, which gave me peace of mind so I could focus on the beauty that surrounded me wherever we went, and the chef did wonders with the pretty limited supplies available. Will definitely be back!”
