Mt. Ramdung

Mt. Ramdung

Days from

Mt. Ramdung in the Rolwaling Himal is most of the time used as a warm-up peak for the 6000-ers in Rolwaling. The normal-route is climbed via the North Glacier and North Ridge. The ascent of this peak requires no more than simple snow walking. The route is not steep but quite long though. Ramdung offers an excellent view of Mt. Everest, Melungtse, Gaurishankar and numerous other peaks.

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 Parchermo (6,187 m) and a crossing into the Khumbu via the infamous Tashi Labsta pass (5,760m).

The trek into Rolwaling adds to the attraction of these peaks. It is much less frequently visited than 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 the North East Face of the icy dome of Ramdung usually requires two camps for acclimatization and due to the long nature of the route.

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

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