Home > Nepal > Everest Renjala Pass with Gokyo
Renjo La Pass isone of the most challenging routes in the Khumbu (Everest) region.  It goes through Lukla-Namche Bazaar- Thamo (3,700 m) and Thame (3900 m) are Sherpa villages,   over Ranjo-La Pass and to Gokyo Ri via Gokyo. From Gokyo you cross Nagozumda Glacier to Cho-La Pass, and then Ghale Treks follow the way to Everest Base Camp,

The lore of the Himalayas looms largest around the great 8,000-meter peak massifs of Cho Oyo, Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu.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 Bazar 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. This 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. With the coming of the Mountaineering Expedition since 1950s, the region has attracted large number of tourist as climbers and adventure trekkers. People from Tibet walk all the way down to Namche to sell their home made stuffs and salt to trade. The most wonderful experience would be to explore this area during the end of monsoon season when flowers pop out in Nangpala, giving the trekkers the illusion that they are walking on textured carpet. The strong fragrances of flowers refresh the mind and feels heavenly to camp there and have a very sweet sleep at night. The caravan-style business, it`s remoteness, the biggest glaciers in the whole of the Khumbu region and spectacular views of Mt. Everest and Mt. Cho Oyo are the spectacular features in this trek.

Day 04: Phakding - Namche Bazzar (3446m),
Today day  approximately 6 hrs walking which passes through the magnificent rhododendron forest river. Several villages provide welcome teashops.

Day 6: Thame - Lungden (4300m),
Today we start our serious high altitude trekking. We walk for about 4 hours through a stunning landscape on an old trade route to Tibet to the village of Lungden. This village has only one lodge and very aptly called the Renjo La Support Lodge.

Day 7: The High Pass Lungden - Renjo-La (5390m) - Gokyo (4400m),
The big day starts real early and it is a long day, as we have to walk about 5 hours to reach the pass, going slow because of the high altitude. After a brief stopover to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Everest Range and take photographs, we start on a remarkably difficult downhill journey for about 3 hours to reach the village of Gokyo walk along the stunning and beautiful Dudh Kunda (milk lake).

Day 8: Gokyo Ri (5483m) and Return,
Unlike the Kalapatthar hill from Lobuche, the foot of Gokyo Ri lies five minutes away from the stream the feeds the Gokyo Lake. After two to three hours "huff and puff" you reach the summit not to be disappointed for your effort at all, as the views from here are well worth the effort you put in. Everest (8848m), showing more of it's northern flank than from Kalapatthar, with Makalu (8475m) further to the east and Cho Oyu (8153m) towards the north make a mesmerizing view to watch. Return back to Gokyo Ri after spending a wonderful break at the summit.

It takes four to five hours of walking to reach the very beautiful village of Phortse, for our second home stay component in Sherpa houses. This village has over 23 Everest summiteers, and you meet a lot of them right there in the village. The village is famous for its tolerance and conservation of wildlife, so sights of deer and pheasants is common here.

Prepare

In addition to obvious items such as hiking boots, warm clothing, UV sunblock etc., here is list of things that you might not have considered taking along, but that can greatly enhance the quality and comfort of your journey.

Soft and light shoes (sneakers or kung-fu shoes are perfect) -
after a long hike in inflexible hiking boots, you will be extremely happy to have some light and soft footwear to to wear around the lodge or in the village.

Lightweight knapsack -
this is very useful for short trips away from your lodge, and will save you having to lug your large backpack along. It should be big enough for your camera and a change of clothes and sleeping bag, if you plan to spend a night away.

Lightweight sleeping bag -
as most (all?) lodges can offer you blankets, a light sleeping bag should be sufficient for the journey. Taking a light bag will save you valuable space in your backpack.

Fabric bandaids -
blisters on the feet can turn a wonderful walk into a hell. Bandaids (sticking plasters) should be immediately applied to any area of the foot that there is irritation and friction - don't wait for the blister to develop before doing this. However, only fabric made bandaids will stick to a sweaty foot. Others (even those that claim to be water-proof) will fall off in minutes. A good alternative to bandaids is duct tape. Works great for blisters and also proves invaluable in many other ways.

Personal First Aid and Emergency Gear -
First aid kit with moleskin and bandages designed to cover blisters Sunscreen lotion. Energy snacks. So many different types are available buy a variety and sample them to learn which brand gives you the biggest boost. An emergency kit in case you get lost. Include a whistle, compass, space blanket, string, duct tape, matches and iodine tablets. Flashlight and extra batteries, Binoculars, Knife, Extra pair of prescription glasses, Bug Repellent.

Are You in Good Enough Shape?-

You may walk a mile or two on pavement comfortably, but can you walk four or five miles a day ? or more? on varied terrain without collapsing on the couch for the rest of the afternoon? Once you've chosen a trip, Ghale Treks will inform you, what level of physical fitness you should be at to take the trip. Then, create a plan to ensure you are ready physically.

Ways to Get in Shape for Walking and Hiking -

For many trips it's okay to start your training a month or two before you leave for vacation. Spending time at the gym working with weights and on a treadmill, StairMaster or stationary bike is one route. Supplement the training with long walks or hikes on weekends, preferably on dirt trails instead of pavement. Jogging on toughens you up and increase your agility and stamina.

Bring the Right Pack -

Bring a pack that fits your body comfortably? whether it's a day pack to hold your water bottle, snacks, sunscreen lotion and jacket ? or a pack designed to hold enough gear for a multi-day hike through the mountains.
