The Gokyo Trail Through Renjola Pass

A trek across high passes that lead into trails where you get opportunities to interact with the Sherpa community and learn of their interesting culture on the mountains….as you plod on; your eyes take in the beautiful landscapes in this wild mountain country & gives you a special peace never experienced before….the Renjola pass is known for its spectacular sceneries….a trip that far outweighs its cost…


The Everest, so well known as the Khumbu region is arguably one of the best & famous of all the trekking and mountain regions within Nepal. This is untainted Sherpa country, and the attractions of this area are its natural scenic landscapes, the high mountain hamlets, its charming and ever so peaceful monasteries; and yes, the congenial & friendly people who make the trip even more interesting. This area includes the highest mountain in the world, Everest (8,848m.) and many peaks of altitude 8000m., such as Lhotse, Cho Oyo and Makalu.

Trekking to Renjola Pass is a much sought after trail among trek lovers. A little off the main trekking trail, Thamo and Thame, offer unique Sherpa culture where people have still maintained their traditional lifestyles. You can experience the local culture through home stay accommodation in cozy tea house lodges. Cultural groups perform shows for visitors on request. In addition, you can explore the jungles near the settlements which shelter endangered wildlife species, like the musk deer and pheasants. Tourism is a vital income source in this area and is a major booster for tourism which is much useful for the local economy in this region.
