Rolla trek

(0 Reviews)

Great Himalayan National Park

Number of days



Apr, May, Jun, Oct, Nov

Max altitude

2100 m



Rolla Trek is the shortest and easiest trek going inside the GHNP. In case you have only two days for trekking Rolla is actually the only option with Rangthar. Please also check the trek to Rangthar in the Great Himalayan National Park to know which one you prefer.


Rolla is also a good trek for first-timers to trekking, though you may consider going up to Shilt hut if you have one more day.


The trek begins at the roadhead Gushaini. From there, you hike through the ecozone of the park along the Tirthan River to reach the park gate where the national park begins.


Rolla is located 30 to 45 minutes walking distance from the Park Gate. Do you wish to go further ? Then you need to add at least one day to your trek 🙂

Other treks by Himalayan Ecotourism



Day One : Rolla

Timing Details
Morning The trek starts from the village Gushaini where we have our office. After being introduced to your trekking staff you follow the path giving way to the remote villages of the ecozone. After about one hour you reach the village Ropa where you may consider having your lunch if it is the right time.
Afternoon As your trek is in progress the human population decreases and nature turns into natural wilderness. You go through the village of Ropa and then the tiny Kauncha. After walking for 3 hours along with the Tirthan River you reach the park entrance gate. As you cross the park gate you are in the realm of Nature. On your way to Rolla, you will only come across one old wood house where lives the last inhabitant of the Park, Nanni, an old lady who refused to leave the place. Ahead of Nanni's house the path gets narrower and forest will become denser. You can enjoy the diversity of plants and tree species. After hiking for half-an hour from the park gate you will reach the Rolla huts and campsite. Once the tents are pitched you will receive a delicious snack, and enjoy the riverside location of the camp. During evening at the river bank you may encounter wildlife coming to drink water from the river. It is commom to see monkeys and langurs, but even leopards have been spotted !

Day Two : Gushaini

Timing Details
Morning Wake up with the sound of the Tirthan river. After a copious breakfast everything is packed and you have time to enjoy the place. No hurry you can even have your lunch at Rolla before going back to Gushaini.
Afternoon You go down via the same way to the Gushaini where you are welcome for a tea at our office.

Chalocha trek itinerary


Day 1 : Rolla

Chalocha is 2 hours ahead of Rolla inside the national park. You will need one more day to do this trek.

The day 1 is the same as the Rolla trek.


Day 2 : Chalocha

Leave Rolla in the morning after your breakfast. This allows you to go deeper into the park and enjoy a less frequented, more natural campsite. You remain by the riverside, but of course, as you go deeper into the national park the wilder it becomes.

Chalocha is a nice and easy extension of the Rolla trek if you have 3 days of time.

Birdwatchers will particularly enjoy Chalocha as many species come here to quench their thirst at the river, including the monal pheasant and even the rare Western Tragopan.


Day 3 : Gushaini

It is a longer but still easy descent from Chalocha to Gushaini via Rolla. Count 5 hours.
