I was looking for an affordable guiding agency and Rowaling Excursions more than delivered on my 2017 Everest Expedition via the North Route. Being a combat wounded Veteran, I had special needs that most other individuals typically do not. Rowaling Excursions took the time to understand who I was as a person and mountaineer, but also what my goal in climbing the tallest mountain on Earth was. Their mountaineering expertise led by Chhiring Dorje Sherpa, a 16x Everest Summiter and Tenzing Norgay Award Recipient gave me the comfort I needed in a high-altittude expedition. They accomodated me and
helped ensure I not only had a successful expedition, but a safe one as well. I wholeheartedly recommend Rowaling Excursions to everyone I know!

“I have used Rolwaling Excursion as my main expedition/trek provider for Nepal since 2009 to e.g. Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, Annapurna and Manaslu. Rolwaling Excursion has always paid close attention to my special needs and requirements (foods, special permits, filming permits etc.) and they always put their best foot forward. I’m very satisfied with
their diligent, passionate and joyous staff, their excellent chefs, their flexibility to meet my customer’s wishes and I can warmly recommend Rolwaling Excursion for your next expedition or trek!”

“If you are considering to climb the highest mountains, you need a reliable and experienced partner who lives and breathes mountains.
When I climbed Mt. Everest in May 2008, I had no doubt that Chhiring was the right person to climb with and I trusted him completely. At all times he provided guidance, sound advice and help, whenever needed, whereas he also presented a very realistic assessment of the mountain conditions and situation. In the long term it is all that matters, because there are too many climbers who did not make it down to the basecamp. Being a technical scuba diving instructor myself I always put safety and professionalism first and that’s why I can fully recommend Chhiring, as these are also his values.
What I learnt about him later in August 2008 made me even more convinced that he is a mountain hero ready to risk his own life to save others. I am referring to a very heroic rescue action at K2 in August 2008, when Chhiring saved the life of a member of another expedition member in extremely difficult and dangerous conditions. I feel even more honored that I could climb with such a great mountaineer once. Happy to recommend Chhiring and his company Rowaling Excursion & Mountaineering to anyone!”
