    Great idea for a thread. I will add a post on my Kanchenjunga trek on my return in November. I am doing it mostly relying on whatever teahouses I can use but will have some camping gear to back up as i would like to have the option to stay at the higher altitudes.

    I'm also loving this thread

    I was wondering what to post re Kanchenjunga, but I've already posted notes in this thread. If you've any more questions on that then please ask.

    Should keep this focused on Rolwaling as it says in the thread subject line? Do Manaslu and those other treks deserve their own threads? And/or a couple of others to add to the list of the more remote trails - Naa-Phu (maybe combined with Manaslu?) and Dolpa.

    If you have a guide, are prepared to rough it (dhal bhat every meal) and have the time and patience then I think you could get just about anywhere in Nepal by the proposed means.

    Theshi Labtsa pass can be quite hard. The approach is over a short glacier and then you need to climb up a short but steep rock wall to gain the upper glacier access point. From that access point (5000m) is it a long way to the bottom of the pass. If I was to do it again, I would camp at the bottom of the pass. The pass has a lot of deep and dangerous crevasses. Of course, the crew is not roped and it would not take much for an accident. Any crevasse fall would be very serious. The pass itself is flat. The descent is hard to find in the snow but not difficult. The major issues are: distance from the west bottom of the pass to the top (difficult to go back if altitude sickness strikes), serious crevasses, difficulty of rescue of required due to the terrain. The hike up the valley is easy and pleasant.
