The Rolwaling trek is one of the most underrated excursions among experienced trekkers and the challenging route is filled with beautiful views and unparalleled adventure. With a moderate-difficult grade climb ahead, the Rolwaling trek is ideal for lone trekkers hoping to test themselves and use their advanced skills to navigate a tricky climb. The rugged and largely unexplored region has a magical history behind it when British mountaineer, Eric Shipton, claimed to photograph yeti footprints on his journey in 1951. Pachermo Peak is an epic peak in the Rolwaling region that is popular among mountaineering enthusiasts in the area. With an altitude of 6272m, the journey won't be easy but the outstanding scenery on the peak makes the entire trip worth it, as climbers can look forward to epic views of Gaurisankar mountain as they wake up in the morning.

We strongly suggest bringing Western meds with you as there are a lot of Indian fakes on the market!


Suggested: Diamox, Azithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Tinidazole or Flagyl & Augmentin. Bring COMPEED for covering blisters & good tasting electrolytes &/or rehydration salts (Emergen-C is a good American brand). The local versions aren’t very appealing.

We also recommend bringing strong knee & ankle supports & braces, ACE bandages for sprains & strains, Tegaderm &/or other would coverings. Duct tape is always useful. We’re happy to take excess medical supplies off your hands when you leave if you won’t need them and pass them on to others. We use lots of the large amount we have with us to treat locals we meet when trekking.
