Tsho Rolpa: The Glacial Lake


Tsho Rolpa is one of the biggest glacial lakes in Nepal. Located at an altitude of 4,580 meters in the Dolakha District, this lake lies between the famous Langtang and Everest ranges. Those who embark on this trek are rewarded with the majestic view of Mt. Gaurishankar and the Himalayan panorama surrounding it.

Your journey begins from Dolakha from where you take a bumpy ride through winding road and beautiful landscapes towards Gongur Khola. Next day you head for Chyochyot which is the gateway to Simi Gaon, a Sherpa village high up on the mountainside of alpine forests and rocky terrains. You will be mesmerized by the beautiful landscapes and gurgling streams. Having said that, keep an eye out for leeches as they are everywhere on the trail. Finally, you reach Dongang which is at the altitude of 2800 meters.

The journey from Dongang to Nagaon is the longest stretch with continuous uphill and increase in altitude making the trek difficult. You reach Thangding and continue to Rangding, a small village. Next day, after two and half hour of trek, you finally reach Tsho Rolpa Lake. The beautiful blue patch of ice-cold water shines like a jewel in the midst of the panoramic snowy mountains. The sight is enough to make you forget your days of exhaustion.
