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.

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.
