Gokyo Renjo La Pass trek offers an escape from the mainstream trekking trail to Everest Base Camp. Away from the crowds, and with its own unique features, this route provides an exclusive experience as you journey to the famous Gokyo Valley. Marvel at the snowy mountain tops and the Himalayan mountainous landscape inclusive of terraces, pristine valleys and crystal clear lakes as you explore the culture and traditions of the Gokyo region.

From Lukla, the gateway to the Everest and Gokyo region, we will hike all the way through Namche, Dole, Gokyo, Gokyo Ri, Renjo-La Pass, Lungden, and Thame Village. Due to the high degree of variation in elevation, you’ll be able to witness different types of lustrous vegetation. Rare species such as musk deer, wild mountain goat, lophophorus, snow leopard, pheasants, mountain hawk and snow duck can be seen on your way up. Don't forget about the fabled Yeti, who is believed to reside around the Khumbu region. So, watch out!

The Khumbu region is home to the mighty Mahalangur Himalayan range, home to the four tallest mountains in the world, Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8585m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), each differentiated by separate valleys. Gokyo Valley is renowned for its remarkable five lakes. Delightful turquoise lakes guarded by silver mountains is a sight you need to see to believe. Ngozomba Glacier, the largest glacier of the Himalayas, is another major attraction of Gokyo Valley, which can be seen all the way from Cho Oyu peak to Dole.

Gokyo Ri peak (5357m), another enticing attraction of this trek, has great views of Mt. Everest. Here, we can revel in a 360-degree panoramic view of the giant mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Pumori, Lingtren, Chola Peak, Machherma Peak, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru.

The Sherpa are the aboriginal people of the Himalayas, who have adapted to the harsh conditions of the alpines. A unique blend of Nepalese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism can be seen in the lifestyle and traditions of the highly religious Sherpas. Thus, on this journey we will also be able to see monasteries, prayer flags and scribbles that have centuries soaked in them.

Pack your bags, and get ready for a journey to the most awe-inspiring mountains in the world! Please see a day-by-day itinerary under the Itinerary section.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
