Gokyo and Renjo-La Pass Trekking

The lore of the Himalayas looms largest around the great 8,000-meter peak massifs of Cho Oyo, Everest, Lhotse

Gokyo and Renjo PassGokyo and Renjo-La Pass trekking is in the remote valleys beneath these peaks are threaded by ancient trails. Some like the well-traveled path to Everest Base camp are well known among western trekkers and mountaineers. Others including the trail through Nangpa-La between Namche Bazaar and Tibet are known to Tibetan monks and traders, but have long been forbidden to Westerners. This exploratory trip is our attempt to offer fresh insight, little trod trails and new visual perspectives on this area of greatest Himalayan peaks.

Gokyo Lake & Renjo-La PassThis trek also traces important history of the Sherpa people. They settled the region in the late 1400s or early 1500s, arriving from the eastern Tibetan province of Salmo Gang. Sherpas appears to have left their homeland and crossed the Nangpa-La pass (18,749') in to Nepal. The economy of the Sherpa Community has traditionally been agriculture, livestock herding and trading between Nepal and Tibet. This trek leads superb views of Thamserku and Nangpa-La Valley then after crossing the Renjo-La pass scenic views trails takes us Gokyo Lake from where we will have closed views Everest and its range.
