Trip Introduction:

Ramdung Peak Climbing in Nepal 5925m is one of the popular trekking peaks in Rolwaling region. Ramdung peak is also known as Ramdung-Go. The peak was first explored by Bill Murray in 1952.

The peak is technically straightforward which demands careful logistical planning and adequate acclimatization before the climbing. Ramdung Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks is an excellent opportunity for climbing the Ramdung Peak while exploring the less beaten Rolwaling region as well as popular Khumbu region in one trek.

Ramdung Peak Climbing in Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Gongar Khola via Jiri Charikot. From Gongor Khola we begin our adventurous journey passing through Rhododendron, Oaks and Pines filled forest and along with traditional villages towards Na village.

After spending a good acclimatization day at Na we continue on our trail towards Ramdung Base Camp. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped we head off for climbing the summit with the guidance of experienced climbing experts recommended by Nepal Guide Treks. The climb to the summit is less technical compared to other trekking peaks. However, the altitude and remoteness of the peak guarantee a certain level of challenges.

Following the directions of the climbing experts, we head towards the peak summit. Once at the top we have an excellent view of Everest,Melungtse, Gaurishankar and other surrounding peaks. After accomplishing the summit of Ramdung Peak we descend back to Na village. We head for the crossing of the challenging Tashi Lapcha Pass 5755m and then a pleasant walk all the way down to Lukla.

The wonderful experience at Ramdung Peak Climbing in Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.

Every Peak Climbing is a technical adventure activity in Nepal which requires previous trekking experience and technical skills about peak climbing gears to have a successful summit. While comparing other peaks with Ramdung Peak, this is a medium category in terms of peak climbing – neither too hard nor too easy. The trip also contains an adventurous high mountain pass; Tashi Lapcha at 5755m would be amazing. Sometime, walking in high altitudes might attract by high altitude sickness, a slow and steady walk would be the perfect solution. We suggest every adventure seekers who are planning to come to Nepal for trekking adventure to do daily around an hour physical workout (jogging, hiking, cycling, gym, etc) prior to a couple of weeks. Previous trekking experience and knowledge about peak climbing are highly required for this peak climb.

Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who do like crowed environment also can choose December, January and February months for this trip.
