Trip Information:

Gokyo and Renjo la Pass trek are one of the best trekking destinations as it gives us an opportunity to experience various landscapes changing into meadows, ridges, fine clefts, and steep climbing trails. Not only that, we can witness the sky-high mountain peaks, snow-capped mountains and hills, the ice caps, and the best view from the viewpoint of Gokyo Ri. The view of the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest and the sister peaks like Cho Oyu, Lhotse and Makalu from Gokyo-Ri is world-class and paradisiacal. The displays of Gokyo valley has a collection of stoned houses and pastures on the shore of a great lake, Dudh Pokhari and the massive Ngozumpa glacier.

This 15-day Gokyo and Renjo la pass trek will begin at Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. The second morning at Kathmandu we will take you to Lukla, the gateway to Everest through a scenic flight from the domestic airport. This is where the real adventure of your trip will begin. The magnificent mountains, the gushing sound of the rivers,  the rhododendron forests, etc. will help us get through this tiring yet worth the effort trek through the Gokyo valley and one of the high passes Renjo-La Pass. The gorgeous sceneries from the whole trek will knock everyone off the knees.
