The tour "GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass" starts and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking trip that takes 28 days taking you through Kathmandu, Thame, Taranga and 13 other destinations in Nepal. "GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, 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.

Review for another World Expeditions tour
“We had a great guide. Yumi looked after us very well throughout the tour. She also taught us how to take local transports which made our post-tour days so much easier. I had visited Japan 4 times previously. This tour is probably the best: an excellent mix of fast-paced modern cities and traditional, ancient regions. We were there at the perfect time and were rewarded with magnificent displays of cherry blossoms. We were so lucky to be able to share the enthusiasm and excitement the Japanese have for celebrating the cherry blossom season. Quite an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended.”

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel.
