Rolwaling Peaks Exploratory | 5000m – Tashi Labtsa and Remote Nangpa


Leadership. Luke Smithwick will be guiding this trip into the Rolwaling region of Nepal.  The Rolwaling is a wild region on the Tibetan border with Nepal, home to ancient salt trade routes and fascinating culture, not to mention spectacular mountains.

Proving Ground. Come challenge yourself on a remote expedition style trek in the Himalayas.

Trust. Climbing at 5000+ meters is no place to be short on resources. We make the proper advance preparations to ensure that our team will be properly cared for, from airport to summit to airport.
