Gokyo Renjo la Pass Trek 9 days Itinerary

Gokyo Renjo la pass trek is an extraordinary adventure, offering a remote and alternative route within the renowned Everest Region. Situated north of Namche Bazaar and to the east of Thame Village, Renjo la Pass presents trekkers with breathtaking views of the Himalayas, while also serving as the closest trail to Nangpa-La Pass, which connects to Tibet. This path has historically been used for Tibetan trade, as merchants cross the pass and make their way to Namche Bazaar to sell their wares.

For avid trekkers seeking a genuine adventure in a spectacular landscape, the Everest Renjo Pass Trek provides an exhilarating experience. Renjo La Pass is also part of the popular  three-pass trek in the Khumbu region, linking the beautiful Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp routes through the Cho La Pass and Renjo La Pass.

Embarking on the Gokyo Renjo la trek is not for the faint of heart, as it involves challenging sections at high altitudes shortly after leaving Namche. The ascent to Renjo la Bhanjyang takes you to an impressive elevation of 5,435 meters above sea level. However, the rewards are worth the effort, as the scenery along the way showcases the magnificence of the Himalayas. From the glistening turquoise waters of the Gokyo lakes against the backdrop of a clear blue sky, to the prominent Ngozummpa Glacier and the awe-inspiring peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Cholatse, and Tawache, every view is a feast for the eyes.

The ultimate goals of the 9-day Renjo la Pass trek are the enchanting Gokyo Lake and the majestic Gokyo Peak. Exploring the picturesque Gokyo Valley and conquering the summit of Gokyo Ri allows trekkers to witness panoramic views that defy description. This journey promises a unique and unforgettable adventure for those seeking to immerse themselves in the wonders of the Everest Region.

Best time:

For the Renjo la Pass trek, the best times to embark on this adventure are during the spring season, specifically from March through June and July. These months offer trekkers favorable weather conditions and excellent visibility, providing the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the region. With blooming flowers and verdant greenery, the landscape becomes a feast for the senses, enhancing the overall appeal of the trek. Furthermore, during this time, the trails are relatively less crowded compared to the peak trekking season, ensuring a more tranquil and peaceful experience for adventurers.

Alternatively, the early months of September to December also present an optimal window for the Renjo la Pass trek. This period marks the autumn season when the weather is stable, and the skies are generally clear. The days offer mild temperatures, perfect for comfortable trekking. Autumn unveils breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, as the exceptionally clear skies allow trekkers uninterrupted panoramas of the majestic Himalayas. Similar to the spring season, embarking on the Renjo la Pass trek during autumn offers the advantage of a quieter journey, with fewer fellow trekkers on the trails.

Both spring and autumn provide the ideal conditions for exploring the remote and ecologically pristine Khumbu Territory. By opting for the Renjo la pass route, trekkers can steer clear of the crowds often encountered on more popular trails and instead indulge in the untouched beauty of the region. Whether one prefers the vibrant landscapes of spring or the crystal-clear vistas of autumn, the Renjo la Pass trek guarantees an unforgettable adventure amid the magnificence of nature.

Trekking itinerary and Route:

The Renjo la pass trek itinerary typically begins with a scenic flight to Lukla, followed by a trek alongside the captivating Dudh Koshi River, eventually leading to Namche Bazaar. After a day of rest in Namche for acclimatization, trekkers continue their journey towards Renjo La Top, passing through the charming Sherpa village of Thame. This route is known for being less crowded compared to the Tengboche side, offering a more serene experience. Basic accommodation options are available in Lungden, making it a convenient stop along the way. Once the Gokyo Valley is explored, the return trek follows a route back to Dole, Namche, and Lukla, and concludes with a flight back to Kathmandu.

During the Renjo la trekking adventure, there are opportunities to ascend several peaks if one has extra days to spare. Sundar Peak in Thame and Nangkartshang Peak, also known as Lungden Peak, are two notable options. Lungden Peak, standing at an impressive 5,100 meters above sea level, is located along the ridge of the Renjo La pass. As a result, trekkers have the possibility of summiting Lungden Peak on the same day they pass through Lungden village en route to Renjo la. These additional peaks provide an exciting challenge and a chance to further elevate the trekking experience amidst the breathtaking surroundings.

About Sundar Peak

The Sundar Peak is 536o m above sea level and can be summited during your Renjola Pass trek. The Sunder Peak is situated directly above the village of Thame. While this peak is easily accessible a winding path straight up begins at the gompa above Thame, however, if you have a few extra days, we recommend adding a trip to Sundar Peak to complete the trip.
