Ramdun Peak

Ramdung (5,925 m) is situated in the remote upper Rolwaling Valley due south of the village of Na. It is often climbed in combination with Pharchamo (6,187 m) and a crossing into the khumbu via the infamous Tashi Lapcha pass (5,760 m).

The trek into Rolwaling adds to the attraction of these peaks. It is much less frequently visited than the khumbu region and is a secretive valley which  twists and turns, with views restricted by steep forested cliffs, until the valley opens up to superb Himalayan mountain scenery.

The straightforward normal route up to the North East Face of the icy dome of Ramdung is long and usually requires two camps for proper acclimatization.

Basecamp is positions below the Yalung La (5,310m), and nearby Yalung Peak (5,650 m) is a ideal acclimatization climb. A spectacular high camp is normally located on the glacier below the summit ridge.

The mountain offers a panoramic view of the mountain ranges from Langtang to Everest and a splendid view of the mighty triple topped peak Gauri Shankar and Menlungtse.
