Gauri Shankar Trek takes you to the western part of the Everest, adjoining the Tibetan frontier, to a wild, lonely high valley called the ‘Rolwaling’. Rolwaling Valley is believed to be a place of mystery and home of the legendary and much celebrated Yetis.

Gaurishankar trek is a less crowded touristic region. But then it is known for the superb view of Mt. Gaurishanker, Rolwaling Himal, Chobabhamre, Yalung Ri, Pachharmo Peak, Dorjelakpa etc. Gauri Shankar is also known for its rich biodiversity: as many as 526 species of plants, 43 species of orchids and 300 species of birds have been recorded including Musk Deer, Himalayan black bear, Thar, Gaur and Wild Dogs.

The area is under the influence of Tibetan culture. Yalung Pass (5310m) and Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m) are two famous passes on the trek route.
