Ramdung Peak Climbing


Ramdung Peak Climbing

The Ramdung Peak 5,925m (19,440ft)is situated on the eastern side of Nepal, at the boundaries of Khumbu and Rolwaling Valley. Ramdung peak also known as Ramdung Go is one of a cluster of peaks around the Yalung La (5,310m), a pass that provides access from the south to the upper Rolwaling via the Khare Khola. The peaks in the area were first visited by Scottish Himalayan expedition, headed by Bill Murray in 1952, when three of the peaks along the pass were climbed, Yalung Ri (5,630m), Chhugyima Go (6,259m), and Ramdung. Since then, several climbs have made Ramdung an excellent mountain for trekking and climbing in groups in the less-visited region of Rolwaling Himal. Ramdung Peak climbing starts at the bottom of the Tama Koshi in the subtropical lowlands. Then it heads up to the high alpine of sherpa villages such as Beding and Na. The approach from Na leads to two camps for the ascent. Camp 1 is situated about 4,900 meters below the Yalung La. Climbing towards the pass, camp 2 is built east of the pass on the broad slopes of the glacier. The Ramdung Peak Climbing enchants you with spectacular views of the mountains such as Everest (8,848m), Melungtse (7,181m), Gaurishankar (7,134m) and takes you to Tsho Rolpa's glacial lake which is one of Nepal's natural wonders. Join this Ramdung Peak climbing which offers unimaginable Himalayan proximity and serene nature.

We will be blessed with views of Everest (8,848m), Gaurishankar (7,134m), Melungtse (7,181m), numerous other mountain ranges and a lot of glaciers.
