Means of Transport

Tourist bus or private vehicle and walking. All the cost is already included unless otherwise noted.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must when you travel abroad. Therefore, before you come to Nepal, please make sure you have your insurance documents with you since our insurance companies cannot insure foreign nationals. Because of the reason that they cover all expenses if you face some unfortunate happenings and you have to be rescued, medically assisted during the trip or if your belongings are lost or stolen.

Solo Travellers

We have arranged for a single traveler to pay for a single trip only. He has to share the accommodation with other people of the same gender though while he can also join the other groups.

Foods and Accommodations

All meals will be provided during the trek while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Generally, traditional Nepalese(daal, Bhat, curry, and pickle), Tibetan, Continental, Indian and other cuisines are available in the local lodges/teahouses. There will also be a welcome and farewell dinner for guests in Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, you'll be staying in the best quality standard hotel, on a twin-sharing basis. On trekking, accommodation is simple yet comfortable on-mountain lodges. Toilets and bathrooms need to be shared in some teahouses.

Note: Single rooms are always available but only on special requests and spending extra bucks.

Health and Fitness Required

No previous experience is required since it's a moderate trek. But being a healthy person, physically and mentally, is very important. It is better if we prepare ourselves a few days/weeks prior to the start of the trek by jogging and running regularly since we will be walking a lot of ups and downs in the hills, ridges, villages, and mountains. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions should inform us beforehand.

First Aid Kit/High Altitude Sickness

Nepal Adventure Team strongly suggests that you have your own personal first aid or medical kit. This trip takes you to some high altitudes though not much but the slow walks and regular stops between the walks will help you acclimatize to high altitude saving you from the high altitude sickness called AMS(acute mountain sickness). Gaining altitude without proper consideration of AMS is fatal.

Your Guide and Porter

Since mountain trekking takes you to remote places over high altitudes, the leader should have a piece of significant knowledge in the field so that he can wonderfully and safely lead you there clearing any obstacles on the way. Our Nepal Adventure Team can proudly say that our guides are highly qualified for the role. They are fully trained, experienced, and licensed. They have undergone a whole lot of training to make themselves useful in various situations and to make your journey a smooth and pleasant one.
Our porters are always fully equipped with the gear they need and as per the company policy, they are always insured and completely looked after. They are our backbone. We allow a maximum weight of 25kg to be carried by one porter. We make sure that they are well-paid and well-treated.

Best Time to Travel

The best time for trekking to the Rowling Valley trek is Spring (March to May) and Autumn(September to November) because the weather is warm and moderate while the view and visibility are the best. The winter is also somehow fine but the monsoon is the less frequented time because of the occasional heavy rain and when the roads might be troublesome.

Additional Money

Every traveler is different and they spend their own way. Some spend on food and drinks while others on souvenirs. Either way, consider your own spending habits and also tipping, emergency fund($200), etc before you pack up and leave.

Trip Specific Safety

Your guidance is always there for your safety concerns and to look after your valuables. But you have to be equally careful. Carry some sort of wallet or belt for your important documents and money. Hotels have a safety deposit box where the lock is recommended before passing the luggage.

A Couple of Rules

Possession or use of any illegal drugs is totally intolerable. It is because of the law that respects the local people and their culture. The group will be expelled in such a case.

Responsible Tourism

Nepal Adventure Team strongly believes that we all are equally responsible to act in favor of the local people and the surrounding environment. Our clients too have an important role in
A. respecting local laws, customs, and beliefs
B. always ask for permission before doing something local or consult the leader

    A Trek for the Adventurous!

    The trek took us through rugged terrain and remote villages, providing a true sense of wilderness and solitude. The challenge of crossing the Tashi Lapcha Pass was both physically demanding and mentally stimulating, rewarding us with stunning views and a sense of achievement. I highly recommend this trek to experienced trekkers looking for a unique and challenging adventure in Nepal.

    Journey to the Heart of the Himalayas!

    This lesser-known trek offered a pristine wilderness experience, away from the crowds of more popular routes. The landscapes were diverse and awe-inspiring, with towering peaks, deep valleys, and ancient glaciers. Crossing the Tashi Lapcha Pass was a daunting yet fulfilling experience, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks.

    Adventure in the Wilderness

    Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek was an exhilarating adventure through some of Nepal's most remote and stunning landscapes offering breathtaking views of glaciers, high mountain passes, and pristine alpine lakes.
