Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Trekking In Nepal Reviews

Another accomplishment

From: United States | On: 17 Apr, 2018

We had an amazing trek to Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha in Nepal. I was really excited about the trip since a month ago. I’m glad that we finally completed the trip. I always wanted to visit Nepal because of the mountains I used to hear about.


It was a lifetime experience to scope out high mountains passes and glaciers. The famous Namche Bazar turned out to be more than what I expected. The accommodation facility is really comfortable.


Thanks to CoreTreks and the team as this trip would not be possible without you guys. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a trip to Nepal.
