Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trekking takes you away from the mainstream trekking trail and provides you with exclusive experience of trekking in the less traveled, thus quaint, trekking destination in the Everest region. You have the view of snowy mountains and its landscapes, terraces, lakes and valleys, unparallel culture and traditions as well as diverse biotic, flora and fauna of the Gokyo Valley. Joining the Gokyo Renjo La Pass trekking you shall explore the delightful turquoise lakes protected by silver mountains, Gokyo village perched on the bank of one of those lakes, the marvelous view from one of the challenging passes in the region and get insight into the rich Sherpa culture and tradition.

The exploration of a unique blend of Nepalese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism, culture, tradition and lifestyle of aboriginal Sherpa people are some of the other highlights of Gokyo Renjo La Pass trekking beside the marvelous views and natural diversity. Beginning with the flight to Lukla and exploring the villages of Chauri kharka, Phakding, and Namche Bazaar, trekkers stay for acclimatization in the historical trading hub of Namche. Exploration through the villages of Dole, Machhermo, Gokyo leads us to the Gokyo Ri, the peak with extraordinary scenery to witness.

Get yourself soaked in the mysterious and 360 degree panoramic view of mountains including Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8585m), Ama Dablam (6812m), Thame Peak and others  besides the view of Ngozomba Glacier, the largest glacier in the Himalayas, and the unique Gokyo village among others. 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.  In the trekking trail expect to have the glimpses of rare species such as Musk Deer, Wild Mountain goat, Snow Leopard, Lophophorous, Mountain Hawk and others. Locals believe in the existence of Yeti (you may hear several fairytales related to it) as well. You may witness it as well, you never know! You can enjoy the traditional Sherpa dance and experience traditional lifestyle through home-stay or interaction with the locals. After the exploration of the region we retrace our path and head for Thame, then trek to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
