Overview And Highlights

The Ramdung Peak is located in the Nepalese Himalayas and it has an elevation of 5,925 meters (19,473 feet). It was first climbed in 1954 by a French expedition.

Ramdung Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in the Rolwaling Himalaya. It is a popular peak for trekkers in this area. Ramdung Peak is located along the border of Khumbu and Rolwaling Valley, and it reaches a height of 5,930 meters.

Ramdung peak climbing is another name for Ramdung go peak climbing. This activity offers views of the Himalayas, including Gaurishanker, Dorje Lakpa, Chobabhamre, and the Tibetan Himalayas.

The Ramdung Peak is a popular climbing destination and it sees a number of ascents each year. The biggest hazard on the mountain is the risk of avalanches.

If you are planning to climb the Ramdung Peak, you will need to be well-prepared for the challenge. You will need to have a good level of fitness, and you should also be familiar with mountaineering techniques. It is also important to have the right gear and equipment, including a climbing helmet, ice axe, crampons, and rope.

Ramdung Peak Climbing Route

Ramdung Peak Climbing begins with the journey to Singita via Dolakha and Charikot begins the trek, which leads to the Gaurishankar Conservation Area’s edge. The climb doesn’t really begin until the second half of the second day when you reach Daldung La (2,850m).

If you follow the Rolwaling River up, you will come to a valley. You will be able to see the Gaurishankar mountain (7,134m) from there. The trail will start to level off again, but the days on the trek will be shorter as you get closer to higher elevations.

Before you go to Ramdung Base Camp (5,040m), be sure to practice with your gear and refresh your skills. Go to the Ramdung Glacier and the Ramdung High Camp before camping there at night. Then, in the morning, make an early ascent. The summit is at 5,925 meters, so you can’t stay there for too long. However, you will have time to take in the amazing views before heading back down to Base Camp.

Best season for Ramdung Peak Climbing

Spring and Autumn are two of the best months to plan and execute a high passes trip in Nepal since the weather and temperature are constant and favorable for all hikers.
The months from December to May are winter, which means that the trek will be more difficult. Because of this, it’s always suggested to complete the trip during the Spring (March through May) or Fall (September through November) seasons.

Foods and Accommodations

Food is the most important source of energy for climbers during their expedition and ascent. As a result, be sure to bring emergency health energy bars and dry meals to restore your energy hourly.

You will not be able to visit all of the world’s tremendous nature locations in one trip; you must pick and choose, based on what appeals most to your senses. However, no matter where you go in the Himalayas, there will always be someplace more beautiful than it.

Furthermore, good lodging is another important aspect of the journey because it helps your body to prepare for the next day’s trek. During high-altitude treks, adequate rest and sleep are critical.

During the Ramdung Peak Climbing, you can stay in lodges, guest houses, and tents. It’s also a good idea to bring a sleeping bag with you to have a comfortable and warm sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I hire a porter to carry my backpacks?

Yes, you can hire a personal porter to carry your backpacks during the expedition. But it might cost you some extra charge to hire a porter.

What are the chances of Altitude Sickness during the expedition?

If you are not from a high-altitude environment, the adjustments will be significant. However, Altitude sickness can be prevented if you take it slow and cautious.

How difficult is Ramdung Peak Climbing?

Climbing Ramdung Peak can be challenging, especially if you are not used to high altitudes. It is important to take your time and acclimatize to the altitude before attempting to summit. The climb itself is not overly technical, but there are some steep sections that can be challenging.

Four Seasons of Trekking in Nepal
____________________________________

Spring: March-May

The spring season of March/April/May is the best for holidays in the Nepalese Himalayas. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and the temperature is warmer. At heights below 3,500 meters, you can expect temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees during the daytime, although these will drop at night. Once above 3,500, you should expect significant temperature drops at night and early morning, often as low as -15 degrees.

There is some rain in these months, but nothing severe and this really helps to bring out the natural colors in the varied flora and fauna, especially in the national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron.

This is the primary time for tourism in Nepal with trekkers and mountain climbers seen all across the country.

Summer: June – August

Nepal experiences its monsoon season during June, July, and August, and it can sometimes last until mid-September. Some treks are possible in mid-June before the rains really get heavy, however, visibility can be limited.

The rains bring other challenges and obstacles. Mountain flights are not so frequent,
while landslides can block the roads. Trekking in mid-June is still possible but we advise against the classic treks such as Everest due to the risk of long delays at Lukla which could potentially lead to missing international flights. If this is the only season possible for you, then we recommend treks in drier parts of the country such as Upper Mustang or Upper Dolpo. We can also suggest other activities such as white water rafting or visiting the National Parks at Chitwan or Bardia.

Autumn: September – November

With very similar conditions to spring, the autumn season begins in mid-September and runs to mid-December, and is also ideal for trekking. This is a long window of good visibility and so there are a wide variety of trekking options available.

This time of year is also known for its festivals, especially the Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival. There are also long national holidays so many people return to their villages to see family, making rural Nepal even more vibrant than normal. There is little rain and the skies are mostly clear with warm weather. This does mean that the trekking routes can be quite crowded in the most popular areas so we advise booking early to avoid the disappointment of full tea houses.

The less popular trekking regions such as Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Upper Dolpo, Mustang, and Naar Phu are great alternatives for those who want to avoid the crowds at this busy time.

Winter: December – February

December to February is the winter season in Nepal. Trekking at this time is not ideal and we advise against anything that goes into thin air as snowfall is common and temperatures can be extremely low.

Trips that can be done in winter include trekking in the hills around Kathmandu, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Nagarkot, Chitwan National Park, Bardia National Park, or experiencing a homestay in one of the local villages. The biggest positive of this time of year is the excellent sunsets and sunrises which can often be enjoyed in the rural areas.

There is something for everyone at any time of year in Nepal and the team at Peace Nepal Treks are happy to advise the most suitable for your needs.

Check-list of personal equipment:

Below is a checklist of equipment that we advise people have with them when visiting Nepal. This is a guideline only and will depend on the type of trip you are undertaking.

While we always suggest bringing your most important equipment from home, it is possible to buy or rent equipment in Kathmandu where almost all products and major brands are available, often at cheaper rates than you might find at home.

This equipment listed is prepared by our long experiences in trekking. During the treks, our porters can carry approximately 20kg in total while we recommend that any trekker carries their own day-pack that weighs between 8-12kgs which would include a camera, snacks, and drinking water for easy access.
