Ramdung Go Peak Climbing

19 Days

This is usually climbed from the north and combined with a crossing of the Tashi Labtsa. The approach from the Rolwaling is long, involves crossing a steep pass to even get to base camp and is crevassed but otherwise on the peak it isn’t steep.


Ramdung Peak (5930m) is situated south of the Tashi Labtsa 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.
