Ramdung Peak

The Ramdung Peak is situated in the borders of Khumbu and Rolwaling valley in the eastern side of Nepal. The Ramdung Peak Climbing enchants you with magnificent views of the mountains such as Everest (8848m), Melungtse (7181m), Gaurishankar (7134m) and takes you to the beautiful ice glacial Lake of Tso Rolpa which is one of the natures wonders of Nepal. At 5,930m this is a climb which is not very technical or difficult but is challenging given the strenuous nature and the remoteness of the area. This offers an unreal proximity to the Himalayas and serene nature.

A team led by Bill Murray first climbed the peak in 1952. Ramdung peak is an ideal summit for trekking and climbing groups as the normal route to it, through the glaciers on north-east side is straightforward. The mountain offers a panoramic view of mountain ranges from Langtang to Everest and also a splendid view of Gauri Sankar himal and Menlungtse from the Ramdung Peak

Later you will be accompained by the office staff for a short tour of Thamel to make you familiar with some good restaurants, ATMs, money changer and other necessary places you might need during your stay in Thamel.

The very next morning, after breakfast you will leave for a full day sightseeing tour around Kathmandu valley. You can visit the sacred Pashupatinath Temple and Swyambhunath, very ancient and essentially enlisted in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The biggest Buddhist Stupa at Boudhanath and the fine arts and historical architecture of Kathmandu Durbar Square reflecting the ancient Nepalese culture which is the highlights of our guided tour. A visit to Patan City will enchant you with its famous fine arts and historical architecture. On return to your hotel, you will have time to explore the local area, have dinner and perhaps take a leisurely stroll through the famous streets. Finally, day ends with a Authentic Nepalese Dinner in Nepali Cultural Restaurant.

We spend a day preparing the final documents, gears & equipment check and so on. You can go for final shopping if something is missed before leaving out for the mountain.

We will move early in the morning to Gonghar as the highways in Nepal are infamous for its traffic and are often under repair due to rainfall and landslides. Our path will be crossed with lush green hills, forests, fast rivers and occasional glimpses of Himalayas. The trek to Simigaon runs through suspension bridges, thick jungles, and small tea shops. Overnight in Simigaon.

As we move, we will be passing through a few Sherpa settlements and if we have the clear sunny day we will be blessed with an incredible view of Gaurishankar (7,134m) towering above the Rolwaling valley. The rocky trail passes through a wooded ridge followed by dense pine forests with plenty flora and fauna as we descend to Rolwaling river and reaching Dongang. Overnight in Dongang.

Ascending uphill through Rhododendron forests and keeping the Rolwaling River to our side, we move further up into the deep valleys of this region. With Gaurishankar (7134m) keeping us company, we will reach a flat terrain with terraced faming. Crossing this we will enter a beautiful Sherpa village called Beding situated right next to the river. Overnight in Beding.

We stay at Beding today to acclimatize. Acclimatizing is key for a successful trek and its importance cannot be stressed enough. We will make short treks around the region to view Gaurishankar (7134) and other peaks which are plenty in this region. We also get to closely observe the lifestyle of the inhabitants during the exploration. Overnight in Beding.

Going up next to the river the trek takes to explore the surrounding Yalung Glacier today. An open space this place has some livestock grazing in its fields and other flora and fauna can be witnessed too. With panoramic views of the mountains in front of us, we reach the Sherpa village of Na. It is also one of the oldest known settlements in this region of the country. Overnight in Na.  

Walking on snow we will make our way to the Base Camp which will take around 5 hours.  The trek offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and already makes you ecstatic with the thought of summiting the Ramdung Go Peak. Multiple tents can be seen here, thanks to other expeditions. We can also get views of the surrounding glaciers like Yalung, Trakarding and Ramdung glaciers. Overnight in Base Camp  

We wake up early in the morning and enjoy the sunrise as the radiant light reflects on the white snowcapped mountains. We will trek past Ramding La pass (5665m) which offers enchanting views of the panoramic mountain ranges. As we reach the High camp, excitement grows about the summit next day. We will also be briefed by the guides on the do and don’t on the climb to the peak. 

Getting up before dawn, we will make our way to the summit. Trekking for good 7 hours on a steep rocky platform we will reach the top.  A strenuous walk, once we reach the top we will witness an absolutely mind-numbing view which stalls every one of our senses. We will be blessed with views of Everest (8,848m), Gaurishankar (7,134m), Melungtse (7,181m), numerous other mountain ranges and a lot of glaciers. The accomplishment of climbing this peak will leave us with a feeling of overwhelming joy. After taking some pictures, we will start our descent to Tso Rolpa which is a beautiful high altitude glacial lake and also gives a wonderful view of the Langtang Himal (7,227m), Pachermo Himal (6,273m). During the night time, we will be able to see beautiful stars in the sky and is a perfect time for astrophotography.  Overnight at tented camp.

Through similar paths, we will make our way back to Beding with magnificent views of Rolwaling Himalayan range, Pachermo (6273m) and a mountain fondly called as Tilicho’s brother. With the images of Tso Rolpa still fresh in our head, we will reach Beding and give much-required rest to our tired legs. Overnight in Beding.

Waking up in the morning, we can begin to recall our experiences of the precious days. Bidding farewell to the trail we previously made an ascent, we head to Daldung La after taking a different route from Thangthing Kharka. We will walk through trails with much foliage and dense bushes. There are many rhododendron trees paving the way and many varieties of birds and animals can be seen thriving in their habitation. Overnight in Daldung La. 

From Daldung, we will lose considerable altitude and make our way to Manthali. Headquarter of Ramechhap district, it is a beautiful valley cut by the Tamakoshi River and is a big town compared to the ones we went through in our trek. This also marks the end of our trek in the beautiful Rolwaling region. Overnight in Manthali. 

Today’s drive is a long one and can worsen given the state of traffic. With beautiful views of the hills, jungles, occasional mountains and rivers we will make our way to Kathmandu and reach the hotel. After that, we will take a much-needed rest for the day. You can stroll around the areas later this day. Overnight in hotel.

Leisure day at Kathmandu followed by farewell dinner & celebration. You can ask your guide to take you on a sightseeing trip inside Kathmandu Valley. On this day you can go to the various museums around the valley including the Narayanhiti Museum which earlier used to be the residence of the last king of Nepal. You may also go to the hilltop of Nagarkot. After some sightseeing around the world heritage sites in the valley, you will have a farewell dinner and enjoy with your Nepali friends and guide. You might even make plans for extending your stay for Chitwan jungle safari, rafting activities, and more with your guide.

Finally it’s SEE OFF TIME. There is nothing to do but trade emails with your travel companions and organize your photos. You will be picked from Hotel by representatives of Wongchhu Peak Promotion staff and dropped at Tribhuvan International Airport 3 hours earlier than your flight time with a hope to see you again. On your way home you'll have plenty of time to plan your next adventure in the wonderful country of Nepal.
