Off the beaten track and not as popular as the Everest Base Camp trek, this 11-day, guided trek in the Everest region brings you face to face with some of the highest mountains in the world and provides stunning sightseeing opportunities.

Join us on this Gokyo Lakes and Renjo La Pass tour and get the chance to discover the headwater of the mighty Dudh Kosi River. We will pick you up from the hotel and drive you to the airport on the first day of the tour. Catch the flight to Lukla and enjoy scenic views of the Himalayas in case the weather is clear. From Lukla, the trail travels past Phakding, Namche Bazaar and Dole before you reach Machhermo.

Explore the Gokyo lakes and see 3 of the 6 lakes in the area. Climb atop Gokyo Ri and enjoy magnificent views of Mt Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Thamserku and Nuptse, among other mountains. Then, cross Renjo La Pass on day 8 before starting your descent. We will drop you off at your hotel upon arrival in Kathmandu on the last day of the tour.

This is a moderately challenging trek. Even those with little or no prior trekking experience can join. For more details, please review the itinerary below.

Ruben's review for another Himalayan Leisure, Inc. tour
“I completed my 3rd trek to the popular Annapurna Base camp. I can just say that it's a very beautiful trekking route with lots of rewards despite physical hardship. We were very fortunate with the weather as the first few days were very foggy and rainy however once we reached higher everything became very clear and the visibility was outstanding.”

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.
