Trip Introduction: Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trekking-16 Days
The Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trekking 16 days takes you away from the mainstream trekking trail and provides you with the exclusive experience of trekking in the less traveled, thus quaint, trekking destination in the Everest Region. You have the view of snowy mountains and its landscapes, terraces, lakes and valleys, unparalleled culture and traditions as well as diverse biotic, flora, and fauna of the Gokyo Valley. Joining Gokyo Renjo La Pass trekking you shall explore the delightful turquoise lakes protected by silver mountains, Gokyo village perched on the bank of one of those lakes, the marvelous view from one of the challenging passes in the region, and get insight into the rich Sherpa culture and tradition.
The exploration of a unique blend of Nepalese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism, culture, tradition, and lifestyle of aboriginal Sherpa people are some of the other highlights of Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trekking besides the marvelous views and natural diversity. Beginning with the flight to Lukla and exploring the villages of Chauri Kharka, Phakding, and Namche Bazaar, trekkers stay for acclimatization in the historical trading hub of Namche. Exploration through the villages of Dole, Machhermo, and Gokyo leads us to the Gokyo Ri, the peak with extraordinary scenery to witness.
Get yourself soaked in the mysterious and 360-degree panoramic view of mountains including Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8585m), Ama Dablam (6812m), Thame Peak and others besides the view of Ngozomba Glacier, the largest glacier in the Himalayas, and the unique Gokyo village among others. Climb to the challenging Renjo La Pass (5345m), another viewpoint in the trail that provides yet another surreal scenery of the Himalayas to the trekkers as a reward for their strenuous trekking in the region. On the trekking trail expect to have glimpses of rare species such as Musk Deer, Wild Mountain goats, Snow Leopard, Lophophorous, Mountain Hawk, and others. Locals believe in the existence of Yeti (you may hear several fairytales related to it) as well. You may witness it as well, you never know! You can enjoy the traditional Sherpa dance and experience the traditional lifestyle through homestay or interaction with the locals. After the exploration of the region, we retrace our path and head for Thame, then trek to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.

Local Culture and Religion around Gokyo Renjo La Pass.
Sherpa are the natives of Everest and other higher Himalayan regions, the word “Sherpa” comes from the Tibetan language. East for Sher and Pa means people, where Sherpa migrated around the high Himalayas of Nepal around Mid-East and Far Eastern Himalayas range from Eastern parts of Tibet.
Way back more than 400 years of history, the Sherpa normally are farmers and livestock herding like cows and yaks interwoven with strong Buddhist religion and fascinating cultures that you can witness walking around villages.
In every Sherpa village, one can find a monastery, some are older by more than 500 years like the “monastery of Thame and Pangboche villages”, whereas the famous monastery of Thyangboche was much older and was destroyed by a huge fire in 1991 and has been built to its original shapes.
As you walk from one village to another, you will come across many prayer walls and religious monuments of Stupas (domes), with rows of spinning prayer wheels.
Sherpa men-folks were the earlier pioneers as mountain and trekking guides and still hold the post to the present.
