Mount Ramdung

Ramdung peak is one of the most beautiful smaller peaks in Nepal. In terms of an altitude it is 5900m high, yet it is done in an expedition style, requiring to establish a base camp and high camp. It is situated in the Rolwaling valley and it is a recommended peak for those who wish to climb a reasonably easier but much interesting Himalayan peak.
