Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trekking takes you away from the mainstream trekking trail and gives you an exclusive experience trekking off-the-beaten-path in the Everest region. Be amazed by the spectacular views of the snowy mountains and vast landscapes, the unparalleled culture and traditions, as well as the diverse flora and fauna of the Gokyo Valley. Explore the delightful turquoise lakes nestled in the silver mountains and Gokyo village perched on the bank of one of those lakes.

Exploring the unique blend of Nepalese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism, and the culture, traditions, and lifestyles of the aboriginal Sherpa people are other highlights of the trek apart from the marvelous views and natural diversity.

Begin with a mountain flight to Lukla and exploring the villages of Chauri kharka, Phakding and Namche Bazaar. Stay for acclimatization in the historical trading hub of Namche. Pass through the villages of Dole and Machhermo, before Gokyo leads you to the Gokyo Ri, the peak with extraordinary scenery. Soak up the panoramic view of mountains including Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8585m), Ama Dablam (6812m), Thame Peak and others. You can also see the Ngozomba Glacier, the largest glacier in the Himalayas, and the unique Gokyo village. Climb to the challenging Renjo La Pass (5345m), another viewpoint in the trail which provides yet another surreal scenery of the Himalayas to the trekkers as a reward to their strenuous trekking in the region. After exploring the region we retrace our path and head for Thame, then trek to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.

On the trek, you may catch a glimpse of rare species such as musk deer, wild mountain goat, snow leopard, mountain hawk and others. Locals believe in the existence of the infamous Yeti as well. You may witness it as well, you never know!

Gokyo Renjo La Pass trekking is full of diversity; from monasteries clad with prayer flags and scribbles to the precarious suspension bridges, and from the majestic Himalayas to cultural heritages of local inhabitants, you get to experience many things in one single trek. Experience the professional service and exceptional hospitality of our team and the feel the warmth of the ever-smiling locals. Discover yourself in this wonder-world in a hassle-free and entertaining trekking expedition in the mountains of Nepal.

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?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
