    Message Regarding flight to/from Lukla

    During the peak seasons for the Gokyo Lake Renjo La Pass Trek (March to May and September to November), all the Lukla flights will be operated from the Manthali Airport due to congestion at Tribhuvan Airport.

    Trip Overview

    This journey focuses on mesmerizing mountain landscapes, glacial lakes, and a high-altitude pass. This also combines the stunning beauty of Gokyo Lakes with the challenge of crossing the Renjo La Pass, offering enthralling views of some of the world's highest peaks.

    The Gokyo Lake Renjo La Pass Trek offers a journey through the less-traveled paths of the Everest region. Being off the mainstream trails, it provides a more exotic and less crowded experience. Moreover, the scenery along this route is arguably more stunning than that of the classic Everest Base Camp trek. The trek is situated in the Solukhumbu District of Nepal, within the boundaries of Sagarmatha National Park. A highlight of this adventure includes crossing one of the highest passes, known as Renjo La

    The region is home to the local people of Sherpas, and other ethnic communities. These people are living in harmony and have a friendly hospitable nature. People from these communities have opened guesthouses and lodges along these routes, offering comfortable and hygienic stays.

    The Renjo La Pass is the highest destination on this trek, offering an incredible view of the Everest range.

    From this viewpoint, you’ll get a great view of the Gokyo lakes with snowy peaks in the backdrop. This pass was once a trade route to Tibet where the Sherpas would walk across Nangpa La. You’ll also have a chance to view Mt Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Aba Dablam, and other snow-capped peaks of the region. Also, you might be able to witness some endangered species like red pandas, snow leopards, and many more.

    With the Nepal Hiking Team, we assure you that the Gokyo Lake Renjo La Pass trek will be the experience of a lifetime. It is a great option for those looking for a less crowded, more off-beaten path trekking experience.
