Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek

Adventure in Everest

Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek


per person

With the major advantage of getting to ascend the Gokyo Peak (5480m), theRenjo La Pass Gokyo Trek is a suitable trek for the adventurous trekkers with limited time to explore the beauty of Nepal. The Khumbu region trek is nevertheless enchanting but the Renjo La Pass Gokyo Trek introduces the privileges of the Everest region in its own way.


From the tranquil Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek to the charismatic snow-covered peaks; this trek has a lot to provide in its short timing. As any other Everest region trek, the journey starts from a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and the route from there depends on your choice. The friendly Sherpa and their hospitable service make the strenuous walk easier along the way, which can be a proper chance to learn Sherpa culture as well. Through the valley of Dudh Koshi, the trek follows a path to the valley known as the capital of the Sherpas, Namche Bazaar, also known as a junction for every trekker as it has fabulous eating, seeing, and shopping places.

The ideal viewpoint of the Everest region, Gokyo Ri (5330m/17487 feet)  falls on the way of the Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek before introducing you to the top peaks of the world; Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyo (8201m), Lhotse (85), Gyachung Kang (7922m) and so on. Also, the view of the highest peak, Mt Everest (8848m), is the one that truly provides a Himalayan experience. The trek goes through Gokyo Valley or Lumdeng to the Renjo-La top, providing an incredible view of the peaks. The Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek lets the trekkers enjoy places like the Ngozumpa Glacier, Rome Pokhari, historical and cultural Thame Valley, etc.

Reaching a maximum altitude of 5360m, the Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek is best done around March or September when the atmosphere is clear enough for you to take in every bit of pleasure provided there.
