Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek allows you to explore the engrossing beauty of Everest region. It is relatively easy, classical and perfect trek that provides you the ultimate experience of Khumbu region including Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Cho Oyu etc. Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek bluntly displays the arresting beauty of natural landscapes that could probably be seen nowhere else in the world.
Everest Renjo La Pass lies in between Thame village on the way to Tibet border Nag Pa La Pass and Gokyo valley, blue lakes and fifth lakes in Khumbu Himalaya. Trekking to Renjo La Pass takes you to the solitary Bhote Koshi River and takes you on the historical trade route between Nepal and Tibet.
Trekking to Gokyo Renjo La Pass is a gradual ascend up to the valley traversing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where elusive musk deer can be encountered occasionally. Exploring yak-grazing settlements and alpine scenery, we reach the Gokyo Lakes.
Few hours uphill climb takes you to Gokyo Peak (5,480m) which allows you to savor the stunning scenery including magnificent view of Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu and Lhotse. Renjo La Pass trekking route is off the beaten path ideal for those who wish to trek high pass but not technical one. Moreover, the cross cultural privilege of Sherpa tribe provides you the deep insight of Himalaya culture and tradition.
