This pass serves as the gateway to the upper Rolwaling region via the Khare Khola trail.

The history of Ramdung Peak climbing can be traced back to 1952 when the legendary climber Bill Murray successfully summited this peak. Since then, Ramdung Peak, also known as Ramdung Go, has gained popularity among adventure seekers from around the world, all eager to conquer its challenges and relish its rewards.
