Tsho Rolpa Lake Trek - 5 Days

Tsho Rolpa Lake trek is a beautiful trek in Nepal that takes trekkers to trek around the high range of Rolwaling valley located in the East-Central part of Nepal. The major attraction of this trek is the Tsho Rolpa Lake. This lake is one of the biggest glacial lakes in Nepal. Behind the lake, you will get to see the beautiful scenery of the mountain.

The trek is near the Tibetan border, and you will get to know the traditional culture of the Tibetan. You will have the opportunity to visit the Brahmin, Chhetri, Tamang and Sherpa villages. Also, you can learn about their lifestyle, culture, and traditions. There is also a legendary tales of the abominable snowman, known as the “Yeti” in the district.

We will start our trek from Shingati. On the way, we will be seeing some rice and mustard fields and passing through Sun Koshi river. We will be exploring the Na village and the old monastery. We will head towards to visit the Tsho Rolpa Lake and get to admire the view of the lake. There is a Great monastery called Bigu Gompa along the trek. There are more than hundred nuns there. Besides going through alpine forests and rocky terrains, there will be a beautiful blue spot of ice-cold water sparkles like a charm in the middle of the scenic snowy mountains.

During Tsho Rolpa lake trek you hardly meet some other trekkers on the way. Its because of this trekking area is not as famous as other popular trekking in high altitude lakes such as Gosaikunda trek, Gokyo lake trek, etc. For those who are looking for a less crowded area to enjoy the real beauty of Nepal from the remote villages, this trek is the best option.

The best time to do Tsho Rolpa trek will be in Autumn and Spring. Full of colorful rhododendron flowers will be growing in the forest. Enjoy nature as you trek up.
