Easily reachable by road from Kathmandu, the Rolwaling Valley is a great option for those with limited time and want to trek into a less touristy area of the Himalayas. The lodges in this region are far more rustic than those in the nearby Everest Region, so don’t expect wood fired pizzas and attached bathrooms. But what the area lacks in creature comforts it makes up in rugged beauty. While the basic version of this trek does not go over any high passes, it is plenty strenuous with a steep climb of 600 m (1,970 ft) in the first 2 hours. The trail passes through rhododendron forests and past several waterfalls before rising above the tree line just after Beding. The valley widens at Na to reveal a glorious surround-sound of high snow-clad peaks. At the head of the valley is the large Tsho Ropa, a glacial lake at the foot of the Tashi Lapsa pass into the Khumbu (Everest Region).

Extra rest days and overnights can be added once the itinerary is created. However any side trips must be added in this step before the itinerary is created.
