Rolwaling Tashi Lopha Trek Difficulty
Rolwaling Thasi Lopha Pass Trek is one of the stunning trekking regions in the eastern Nepal. This trek involves both Rolwaling and Khumbu region. This trekking is a thrilling and inspiring one. Because of its faraway location and remote trekking trails, this trek has been described as one of the challenging trek. This is also little bit technical because it has steep climbing trails and rock climbing.
Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek also involves glacier walk over high altitude. The picturesque high mountains surrounding this valley make the region really very beautiful. It is in fact a hidden gorge between high mountains. This trekking is also rich in its geological, ethnic, cultural variations.
Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is an amazing opportunity to observe the different facets of the Himalayan lifestyle as it goes from a remote to a rather urban route of the Himalayas. It is really a must do trek if you want to be familiar with the high mountains and mountain ecology. Previous trekking experience is not a problem at all. But remember to prepare adequately. We recommend you to have a complete physical course prior to your trekking expeditions.

Best Season for Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trek
Famous writer Mark Twain once said, “Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Climate affects significantly on any Trekking and Hiking. Here, we are going to discuss about the trekking and hiking time in Nepal. Just have a look.
Hiking in Nepal can be done throughout the year. Autumn and spring are the best seasons to go on trekking in Nepal. Every season has something distinct.
Autumn season lasts for September to November in Nepal. This season is the loveliest season in Nepal. The temperature is warm even at the Mountains. The days will be clear which affords the best mountain views.
Spring Season lasts for March to May. During Spring Season Nepal experiences moderate climate. The hills will be veiled with the blossoms of Rhododendron, orchid etc.
Winter season (December to January) is little colder at the Himalayas. The precipitation will be at the form of snowfall. The days are still warmer with plenty of sunshine. The rainfall is occasional. If you like to travel in peaceful trails and extreme cold weather is not a problem for you, you can choose winter season. Hoverer, this season is considered an off-season for trekking and Hiking in Nepal.
Summer Season (June to August) in Nepal is also an off-season for trekking. Nepal experiences summer rainfall. During this season, the trails will be muddy and slippery, frequent rainfall, flood and landslides will ruin your journey irritably. However, the rain shadow region like Manang, Mustang and Dolpo offer you the best trekking moment even in this season.

Preparation for Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trek
Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” If you believe you can accomplish everything by “cramming” at the eleventh hour, by all means, don’t lift a finger now. But you may think twice about beginning to build your ark once it has already started raining. Hiking and Happiness go hand in hand or foot in boot. For the same you need to prepare a lot as the above statements say. Trekking and Hiking require a good level of physical fitness. Not only good physique helps you out, but also a mental strength is vital. If you have undertaken some smaller hikes earlier, trekking will be much easier for you. You need to be familiar with trekking and climbing gears. Besides that you need to be aware of basic climbing and mountaineering skills depending upon the difficulty level. Cardio, yoga, jogging, running, swimming, etc. helps you to build up your physics. Stress Endurance Practice helps you to build up your mental capacity. Similarly, have plenty of hygienic foods including protein, carbohydrates and minerals. Here are some tips for preparing for any trekking/Climbing or Hiking in Nepal:

If you realize any other symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness other than Headache, just change your elevation. If the symptoms are severe, you need immediate medical attention.

Tourism is the main stay of the Nepalese economy. Trekking is the best thing to do in Nepal. Nepal has so many trekking destinations which offer you the best memories of your life. But the trails in many different parts of Nepal are yet to be discovered.
High Altitude, unpredictable weather conditions, strenuous trails, are not easy to handle. Snow storm and snow blast are the other challenges that may disturb you. Otherwise, trekking in Nepal is full of Surprises. It is a museum full of social, cultural, and natural riches.
As far as your safety concerned, Nepal is safe for trekking and hiking. The existing trekking trails are upgraded and they have become populous. The 10 years long armed revolution has also come to an end with peaceful politics. Along with the formulation of her new constitution, the socio economic development of Nepal has started to speed up. No more procession, rallies, strikes will disturb you.
On the other hand, the scars of devastating earthquake (2015 AD) are also being healed up along with the completion of reconstruction. You shouldn’t bother about your safety and security in Nepal.
