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.

“I do not even know where to begin. This was one of the best trips I have ever taken. It was a life-changing experience.

Our guide Kedar was extremely knowledgable and helpful. He answered every question. He made sure that every teahouse we stayed in was top-notch. He addressed all of my concerns. Kedar went above and beyond to make sure this was the experience of a lifetime.

Our porter Tika was also professional. Always smiling and in a good mood. Truly an incredible individual.

Words cannot express how beautiful the sights are on this trek. From the first view of Everest near Namche Bazar, to Cho-Oyu as you trek towards Gokyo. The lakes and the Ngozumpa glacier, and the climax, the views on Gokyo Ri and Renjo Pass. Every day brings with it views that will leave you speechless.

I highly recommend this trek for anyone interested in the Everest region.

I will be going back to the Himalayas and when I do I will be using this same company, I will be requesting Kedar as my guide, and I will be requesting Tika as my porter.

Thank you NEPAL ECO!”
Very nice trek with a guide named Kedar Karki working for Nepal Eco adventure.
