Gaurishanker and Menlungtse viewed from the peak are enchanting!

If you are seeking a peak that you can attempt for your first climb, you can try the Ramdung peak. Climbing Ramdung peak is technical and tough, but is not very hard if you do adequate preparations before going.

We will begin our journey from Kathmandu. We will drive to Charikot and will begin to trek. We will make our way up to the summit through different places.

Some of the major attractions during Ramdung peak climbing are the Tashi Laptsa pass (5,755 meters), the hidden valley of Rolwaling, Na Village, Yalung La (Yalung Ri), the Yalung glaciers, and several others.
