Ramdung Go peak climbing

Ramdung Go peak climbing

Mount Ramdung, situated south of Na in the upper Rolwaling area, Ramdung, also called Ramdung Go, is one of cluster of peaks around the Yalung La (5,310m/17,421ft), a pass giving access to the upper Rolwaling from the south, via the Khare Khola.
 
With a height of 5925 m, it provides a splendid view of mount Gauri Shankar and mount Menlungtse.   Ramdung has been climbed numerous times and is an ideal summit for groups wanting to trek and climb in the still little visited Rolwaling Himal area.
 
Ramdung peak is not very high. But, the approach of the peak from Na covers a good distance and most parties require two high camps for the ascent.
