Renjo-La pass in Nepal definitely tough trekking route – but the scenery provides more than ample rewards. Think of this not just as a trek but more as one of the finest mountain journeys you are ever likely to undertake in your lifetime.
It is reasonably popular but takes you over little-trekked passes – the Renjo La (5,340 m) through the remote Bhote Khosi valley. It provides fantastic views of well-known 7,000 and 8,000 m peaks.
We have the superb classic objectives of ascending the summits of Gokyo Ri, for unrivaled views of Mount Everest, offering panoramic views of Cho Oyo, Mount Everest, Cholatse and many more Himalayan giants.
You may encounter herds of Yaks. This area has some lodges and a nice trekking trail. It is now considered as tea-house trekking route of Nepal.
These days it is easier to cross but a few years ago the pass was steep and dangerous at the top. Still, we suggest crossing it in good weather though. Practically every one crosses in the Thame to Gokyo direction.
To see five different lakes, Ngozumpa glacier- consider as the largest glacier in Nepal, the beautiful view of Mt. Everest (8848 m), Makalu (8463 m), Lhotse(8516 m), Cho-yu (8201 m) and many other snowy peaks are the main most outstanding feature of this trek.
Apparently, this is one of the challenging treks in Nepal.
