Ramdung Peak (5930m) is situated south of the Tesilabtsa pass, which borders Khumbu and the immense Rolwaling valley. Crossing the pass into the remote valley of Rolwaling takes you to the rarely climbed peak of Ramdung. Your climb of this ‘hidden peak’ of the Himalayan wilderness begins with a trek into the Rolwaling valley, just recently opened to trekkers. You first make an ascent up lower Ramdung, which, despite its lack of height compared to Parchamo, offers a challenging climb, requiring two high camps on the northeast face route.

Following the Trekking glacier, you arrive near the Tesilabtsa pass and prepare for the climb to Parchamo and establishing a high camp. Climbing Parchamo, following its northwest ridge leads on to Ramdung summit. After the summit, you trek through the famous Sherpa country of Khumbu, ending your trip in Lukla, from where you will board a plane to come back to Kathmandu.
