Trip overview

Renjo La Pass Trek

Trekking to Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Ri via Renjo la pass is famous as Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek. It is totally different experience in a lifetime as it offers adventure and wilderness throughout the trek.  Our agency has expert guides and a strong porters team. Moreover, our staffs have more than 10 years of experience and are familiar with the Nepalese Himalayas.

The Gokyo Renjola Pass trek starts similarly to Everest Base Camp Trek. However, it is different from Namche Bazaar. Trekkers take the route of Thame Village instead of the Tengboche route. Moreover, the route offers the best chance to witness the Sherpa villages. These villages are home to famous Everest Summiteers.  The Everest Three High Passes trek also follows the same itinerary as this trip. You can extend the trek to EBC as well. For example, some trekkers choose to cross the Chola Pass as well instead of Dole return. Therefore, you can have the option to extend the trip too. 

11 Days Renjo La Pass Trek with Gokyo Valley

From the top of Renjo La Pass ( 5340m, ) to Gokyo, you can get the best panoramic view of the mountains. Moreover, you can gaze at the tip of Mt. Makalu as well. Blue turquoise lakes and snow-clad mountains offer wilderness adventure experiences. Therefore, trekkers who want to get a mountain feel, as well as challenge themselves, opt for the trek.

You can explore the majestic five-lake system within the Ramsar conservation area. The lakes are holy and picturesque. Therefore, it is the perfect blend of nature and culture.

Himalaya View Treks is a pioneer company in the field of Nepal Trekking. We offer great hospitality and quality services in any kind of trekking. Moreover, Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek is a high-altitude trekking adventure. Therefore, it requires expert guiding services. Choose HVT as your traveling companion and trek to Nepal hassle-free.

General Information vital to this trek:

Best Season for Gokyo Renjola Pass trip:

Doing this trek/climb at the right time is very important to the success of a trip of this kind. Spring (March-May) and autumn (October-November) are really the best seasons to do this trek. The monsoon season (June - early September) has less predictable weather, but some trekkers still choose this time as it aligns better with their vacation schedule. Winter season (December - February) gets pretty cold, and snow may block the passes, but often offers clear skies. Nonetheless, we suggest our guests make bookings for this venture in the spring or autumn, especially in the autumn of September/October. The weather is at its best for this high-altitude trip. The views are crystal clear with sparkling blue skies & the finest weather you could ever imagine.

Difficulty on this odyssey

The Gokyo Renjola Pass trek is rated “Challenging”. It is a very arduous adventure given its high pass crossings. This venture is more challenging than its sibling treks Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes, but not as much challenging as trekking peaks such as Island Peak and Mera Peak. Nevertheless, doing this trip requires really good physical fitness & previous experience trekking above 4500m.

Accommodation & Meals

The Everest Region has admirable infrastructure for trekkers. The teahouses (lodges) are of relatively high quality and they serve good meals, especially in Namche Bazar which you’ll pass on the way up and down.

Will I need travel insurance?

It’s mandatory and highly recommended to get travel insurance before embarking on any adventurous trips in Nepal.

We advise all our clients to get travel insurance that covers up emergency helicopter evacuation that may be needed in case of the occurrence of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) or any other reasons in high altitudes where there are no other means of transportation available. It is advisable to review carefully the insurance and its coverage before making the final decision. Carry proof of your insurance with you on the holiday and leave a copy next to your kin. You must ensure that your insurance provides an adequate level of protection and covers you well for the activities involved.

  • How difficult is the Renjo La Pass trek?

    The Renjo La Pass Trek is also known as the Gokyo lake Renjo La Trek or Gokyori via Renjo La Pass Trek or High Land of Everest Valley Trek. It is one of the hardest trips that Himalaya View Treks provides to its bold & brave trekkers and adventure-seekers. The journey is known to be a complete circle of high alpine country within the Everest Valley following the treacherous of Renjo La, before Gokyo Lake visit. The taxing trip is indeed a long walk in remote land, high up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. For this adventurous trek, you must be very fit and highly experienced in the Himalayas.

  • When is the best time to do the Renjo La Pass Trek?

    Renjo La Pass Trek is best done in pre-monsoon season i.e. from March to May and post-monsoon season i.e. from late September to December. It is also possible to do this trek in February and early September but the trek is best preferred in early autumn. September/October would be ideal & wonderful.

  • Is my trip departure guaranteed?

    Absolutely yes! Under normal circumstances, our booked trips are guaranteed to run. You will still be doing your trek even if other trekkers cancel their trip. This is the reason why Himalaya View Treks is small but highly dependable; we’re somewhat different from other agencies, who usually cancel their whole trip a month or even a week before the trip date. We are a tailor-made outfit and the number of participants does not stop our operation. If your trip has been canceled by your operator and you are on a last-minute stress mode, remember to find us to sort out your trip decisions. Please feel free to book your stress-free holidays with us. Unless there is a situation which is beyond our control i.e. a political riot, natural disasters, pandemics, epidemics or weather catastrophes affecting one & all, our trips are 100% guaranteed to run.

  • If I cancel my trip, will I get a refund?

    Himalaya View Treks offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.

  • Who are my guides, are they experienced enough for such a trip?

    You will be guided by our experienced trek leaders who have been to the base camp and back multiple times for years. All our guides are locals who communicate very well in English and possess deep knowledge of the mountains, people, culture, health, hygiene, and most importantly, your safety. They give more priority to your life than their own. Our guides simply enjoy what they do; it’s their only means of survival.

  • Where will I sleep at nights for a high altitude trek like this?

    After a long day’s hike, a relaxing night of comfortable sleep is very much vital for the next day’s walk. Taking your comfort into account, we make sure to book the best lodge with two beds in each room and western toilet facilities wherever available. Normally, the beds are clean and comfortable with an electric blanket (upon availability) and attached bathrooms for most nights. The room’s temperature is usually maintained at 10-12°C / 50-54°F. We’ve learnt a long time ago on our ceaseless trips to the mountains that a comfortable night is so important to you enjoying the next day.

Amazing guide company エベレスト街道で15日間のガイドをお願いしました。我々は友達と3人でしたがみんなに親切丁寧にガイドしてくれ大変助かりました。ルクラへの飛行機が天候不良で5日間も乗ることができずラメチャップ空港で困ってるときには偶然同じ会社の別のガイドとでくわし、飛行機をあきらめジープで行く方法を提案してくれブブサまで案内してくれた。また我々のガイドもブブサまで迎えに来てくれた。日程が厳しくなったにもかかわらず何とか目的地まで行く工程をくんでくれ、おかげで大変楽しいトレッキングとなった。来年行く予定の友達にもこのガイド会社をすすめておきます。

Excellent treks We did 2 treks with himalaya view treks and with guide sobit tamang, first one to everest base camp with return by helicopter and second trek to poon hill area, everything was amazing and well organized. I really recommend this company and look forward my next trek in october
George and Daniel Weller trekking with Sobit Fantastic experience. Sobit, our guide, was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable and so friendly and helpful. We had a great time with him and lots of laughs - especially when Sobit got his playing cards out! Sobit is such a lovely man - I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of trekking to Base Camp. We trusted him completely and felt totally safe with him. My son and I will miss Sobit and hope to see him again some time in the future.

Gokyo, Renjo, Cho Oyu base, 5th loop. (Guide - Prayash) Awesome trek, very well organised and our guide was awesome. Prayash had really good knowledge of all the mountains, told us about Sherpa culture, old trails and all sorts of cool info. He was a funny guy and we really enjoyed trekking with him. Always happy to look after you or help out. Will be recommending Prayash to our friends and if we trek this region again he is our guide for sure! Legend! Our guide Prayash was also super fit and it was nice to trek with someone who was happy to chill when the scenery was nice and happy to move quickly when we needed to. Prayash is pretty good at cards too 🃏 Everything was taken care of from Kathmandu and made our trip really easy and enjoyable. The tea houses we stayed in were all great and had amazing food.

Once in a lifetime experience!!! Just returned home from a fantastic adventure holiday on the EBC trek. Himalaya View Treks couldn't of been more helpful from choosing and booking our trek before we arrived through to dropping us back to the airport once we had finished , nothing was too much trouble. Before coming to Nepal me and my dad was unsure if we needed a guide however we are now so pleased that we decided to get one. Sobit our guide made the experience so much better as he took care of all the arrangements and organising leaving us to concentrate on the trek and enjoy the scenery without any stress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Himalaya View Treks and would request Sobit as a guide as he was brilliant!!!!

Increíble experiencia en Poon Hill Nuestra experiencia fue fantástica, tanto el trato recibido por Suraj (nuestro guía) como por Jivan (nuestro porteador) fue genial. Estuvieron muy atentos a nosotros en todo momento siempre dispuestos a ayudar y a resolver nuestras dudas. Hicimos la ruta de Poon Hill a través del bosque de Rhododendros. La ruta nos llevo por sitios increíbles durante cinco días y cuatro noches. Es una ruta muy recomendable tanto por las vistas a largo del camino como por el amanecer en el mirador de Poon Hill a 3210m desde donde podemos ver algunas de las montañas más impresionantes del mundo.

Authentic experience! We booked our Thorang La Pass tour woth Himalaya View Treks and we were not disappointed! Communication with Simbir was great and prompt and he provided all the required information we needed. We had an excellent guide - DB and excellent porter - Manoj. Both were very good at their job, they made us feel safe and provided tips along the whole trek. DB is very knowledgeable on all the mountains in the Himalayas and he explained all the scenery along the trek. We also learnt a lot about the Nepalese culture. They pushed us so that we made it to the top and we were so proud to have made it! Very satisfied with everything, couldn't recommend the company, guide and porter enough!!

Himalaya View Treks exceeded my expectations. My guide, Ram Gurung did a great job leading us EBC. The 2 week EBC trek was a success. The itinerary was smooth with lodging, food, and guiding. I recommend Mr. Simbir & Himalayan View Treks for your time in Nepal.

Mr. Simbir from Himalaya View provided us (me 63 and my wife 61) a porter cum guide from Lukla on the EBC trek in March and April 2022. We successfully completed the trek, everything went without the slightest problems, the negotiations were simple and the agency absolutely reliable . Our porter cum guide Yuba Raj carried our 15 kg backpack, reliably guided us through the entire two-week trek and solved all our worries with accommodation, meals and itinerary. We became very fond of Yuba.Highly recommended.

It was awesome experience with Himalaya view Treks, when we travelled to Nepal for Trekking to EBC and next year Annapurna Circuit. Porter cum guide provided both time was talented as well as good nature. Mr. Singbir is such a good and jolly guide who helped us at kathmandu apart from trekking also. We will always use his Himalaya View Treks services for any future treks in Nepal.

Everything was great with Himalaya View Treks (Simbir ji) and we would gladly choose his company again. We had hired Dewan ji as our Porter-cum-guide from Lukla for our EBC trek and we had an excellent 12 days with him and enjoyed our trek thoroughly. He was very competent and caring and we also made him practice his Hindi a lot ;) Made friends with both of them and this trek was surely a memorable experience. We gladly recommend them to anyone without a doubt :) Thank you Simbir ji and Dewan ji for everything :)
