Start and end in Kathmandu, the trip GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass is a guided trekking tour that takes 28 days. You will travel through Namche Bazar, Ghat, Kabug and 13 other destinations in Nepal. GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse Via Tashi Labsta Pass is a small group trip which 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.

“Our whole family loved the trip, it had a great variety with all the activities involved. We all came home pretty fit as the cycling was hard through the hills. We were very well looked after by our guide and driver and really enjoyed everything southern India had to offer.”

“The entire team who supported this trek were magnificent. The food was outstanding - tasty, delicious and very varied - a remarkable achievement given the environment. Juddha, Ganga, Perna and our cook ensured with their infectious enthusiasm and joy of life that every day was a memorable one. Their levels of service and commitment to our group was unbelievable. They are a remarkable team of individuals - led by Juddha. He himself is a very special man. His leadership skills are right out of the top draw. As someone who has coached leaders over the last 30 years, Juddha is an outstanding example of everything that a great leader should be: clear , authoritative, inclusive, caring, fun, inspiring, humble. engaging, optimistic, supportive. He is a wonderful man with great values. You are very lucky to have him and its a tribute to your company that you have such a person who is so proud of working for you.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    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.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
