Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek

Duration: 15 Days   |  

Gokyo Renjo La pass trek is one of the most classy, engrossing and far-from-the-mainstream trail treks, which stuns its trekkers with its enchanting features, exclusive routes and breathtaking aura. The trail to Gokyo Renjo La Pass gives you a fun-filled and complete experience of the Solukhumbu Himalayan Ranges with a fairly suitable and easy walk. The adventurous trek lets you view the pleasing scenery of the majestically beautiful Himalayan mountain landscapes, green valleys, terraces, splashing blue lake along with remarkable tradition and culture of the local people. This short route enables trekkers who have limited time to discover the most famous glories of Nepal. It is literally one of the most stunning treks in the world.

Gokyo Renjo La pass trek, begins with an unforgettable scenic flight over the lush green forests and beautifully flowing rivers taking us towards Lukla airport which has one of the narrowest runways in the world. After our arrival at the Lukla airport, we start our climb walking past the delightful Sherpa villages in Phakding, leading us through the Khumbu Valley also known as the Sherpa land, Namche Bazaar (3,440 m), which is guarded by the mighty mountains from all sides. Set amongst an awe-inspiring high mountain scenery, Namche Bazaar is the gateway to any Everest Region trek and is a trading hub in the Khumbu Region. The trail continues up to two different routes; Renjo La pass or an alternative itinerary. The journey becomes more exciting as the trail gradually ascends and passes through patches of birch and rhododendron forests, where the elusive musk deer and Himalayan Tahr can also be seen sometimes. Walking past through small yak grazing settlements, we reach the Gokyo valley where you feel yourself overwhelmed by the beauty of the tranquil, sparkling, turquoise colored Gokyo Lake.

Gokyo Ri (5480 m) is an enticing attraction and one of the main highlights on our journey to Gokyo Renjo La Pass. It is a small day hike which offers us the best lookout for Mt. Everest (8848 m), rejoicing a panoramic view of other Himalayan giants including Makalu (8481 m), Cho Oyu (8201 m) and Lhotse (8516 m) to name a few. The Renjo La pass trail is what they say an “off the usual beaten track” and trekkers usually don’t take this path. That is what makes it so unique and exciting. A splendid view of Gokyo Lake on one side, the RermoPokhari Lake on the other side and a myriad of snowy peaks in the background provides the most incredible views to witness to its trekkers. From here, the trail descends alongside the opposite side of the bank of the Dudh Koshi River which is also called the “Milk River” as the splashing waters among the rocks makes the water seem white.

Gokyo Renjo La pass trek commences in Kathmandu, visiting the historical monuments and world heritage sites. Kathmandu Valley, the capital city of Nepal, has incredible ancient stories carved in every historical sites and temples. A guided tour in Kathmandu on the second day gives you a chance to experience the Nepalese lifestyle, build you a taste for authentic Nepali spices and a chance to take back wonderful memories captured with your lens. Trekkers feel spiritually enlightened as they walk through the holiest temples and peaceful Buddhist Stupas. The colorful markets set up in these areas provide you with rare handicrafts that reflect the tradition and culture of Nepalese people. Early in the morning on the third day, you will be transferred to the domestic airport as you begin your Gokyo Renjo Lake pass trek.
