  • Overview
  • Details Itinerary
Ramdung is situated south of Na in the upper Rolwaling region and is one of a cluster of peaks surrounding Yalung La. It provides an access to upper Rolwaling from the south via the Khare Khola. A team led by Bill Murray first climbed the peak in 1952; it proved to be an ideal summit for commercial trekking and climbing groups before closure of the Rolwaling area. The normal route to this mountain, through the glaciers of North-East Flank, is straight-forward. The mountain offers a panoramic view of mountain ranges from Langtang to Everest and also a splendid view of Gauri Shankar and Menlungtse.
