A wonderful trek starting in Chechet where the road ends. 600 meters up and you reach the gate to Rolwaling Valley. 2-3 days easy trek with four new bridges and a well-remade trail through Sherpa land and up to Nagaon - or an adventurous crossing over Trashi Lapsa into the Sagarmatha region.

Rolwaling is an inner Himalayan valley, considered to be a Beyal or holy sanctuary by the local Buddhist Sherpa inhabitants. The name Rolwaling means, ‘valley carved by a plough’ and its steep cliffs do indeed give the impression of a plough-carved furrow. It is a little trekked area lying just west of Everest, and its forests and views are some of the best in Nepal. It was here in 1951 that the first yeti footprints were discovered and photographed by Eric Shipton.
I completed the trek in ten days (Kathmandu-Kathmandu), driving in and out from Charikot (check the Charikot Panorama Resort for a stylish, if pricey stay). Next day, I took the local bus to Singati (3 hours) and then trekked to Jagat that same day. Next day easily reached Simigaon, then Dundun (Tilje also nice), Beding, Na (quick trip up to Tso Rolpa Lake) and then back. Got the bus bak to Charikot from Suri Doban (4 hours). Only met six other trekkers, although I was late and if you go this way in October, you'll meet groups who have crossed or are crossing the Tesi Lapsa pass (5700m). There is basic lodge accommodation all the way, but if it got busy, you'd be wise to carry a light tent. Highlights included magnificent forests and of course the giant snow peak, Gaurishankar (7134m).

Gaurishankar Himal and Rolwaling himal, alongside the tibetan border, this valley is the famous among many trekkers. The region features massive valleys, mountains and views of foliage, waterfall and more that will be hard to forget when it is all said and done. If you want less crowded area for trekking, this is the best one.

Recommended for those who are seeking a truly wild mountains. Not too many trekkers, just a few climbers. There are some small sherpas' villages, but then... just the nature. We did the pass Tasilapcha, and going down from the pass to civilisation (in the area of Namche Baazar) we missed the wilderness of Rolwaling.
