Walk past a wild and solitary trail filled with icy glaciers and jade green lakes. Cross a high mountain pass, Renjo La, and climb Gokyo Ri to savor views of Mount Everest and other 8000 metre peaks....


Trek to Gokyo Valley and walk through a surreal landscape filled with high-altitude lakes and frozen glaciers. Trekking above 4000 meters, you pass through some of the highest human habitations in the world. Enter the dramatic Gokyo valley and hike along the banks of the emerald Gokyo Lakes. Ascend Gokyo Ri to enjoy a 360-degree panorama of Gokyo Valley and Nzogumpa Glacier, the longest glacier in Nepal. A hike to the viewpoint of‘Scoundrel’s View’ takes you close to Tibet. Enjoy a glimpse of the rocky north-face Mount Everest. Moreover, a challenging ascent up the Renjo La Pass ups the thrill factor.

What will you discover en route?

The first day’s trek takes you from Lukla to Phakding. You follow a trail filled with mani stones and mule packs and hike through Sherpa villages and pine forests. Cross swaying suspension bridges and walk alongside yak trains; the sound of their bells filling the quiet mountainside. Once you step into Gokyo Valley, you will be trekking in a treeless, high-altitude desert filled with glaciers and icy lakes. Pay heed to your experienced trek leader as he guides you up the challenging Gokyo Ri and Renjo La. Finally, celebrate the completion of your adventure in Lukla with your teammates and crew.

An Everest adventure along a quiter and less crowded route

This trek (Gokyo Lakes  Gokyo Ri  Renjo La Pass) is ideal for those seeking an Everest adventure along a quieter and less crowded route. Within a short duration of just two weeks, you get to explore Gokyo Valley, climb a mountain pass and gaze at the summit of Mount Everest. Our itinerary ensures a comfortable acclimatization before you reach the higher elevations. Join this trek and let the nomad in you roam the vast frozen expanse of Gokyo Valley!  

Been there, done that and now looking for other similar options?

Another challenging option is the Manaslu Circuit Trek. You follow a less crowded route and walk from the verdant Budi Gandaki Valley to the arid Tibet like landscape of Nubri Valley. Experience the unique cultures of the mountain dwellers – the Bhotias and the Gurungs. If you are short on time but still want to walk in the mountains then you can book our luxury Everest Heli Trek. You trek from Lukla to Namche and from there you board a helicopter. Fly over EBC and Gokyo Valley before finally landing in Lukla. 

Best Time To Go

The best seasons are pre-monsoon (March to May) and post-monsoon (late September to December). Trekking in Autumn (post-monsoon) promises clear skies and stunning mountain vistas. During Spring (pre-monsoon) walk on alpine meadows filled with flowers. The higher you go the colder it’s going to be. Above 4000 meters, one can expect snowfall and temperatures to plummet below zero degrees. Nighttime temperatures can drop to as low as -10 degrees. 

Notice : Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu will remain closed from 10 PM to 8 AM starting from 1st April to 30th June, 2019 for runway extension work. Flights scheduled to and from Lukla during this period will be rerouted to Ramechhap Airport.

Why Gokyo Lakes Gokyo Ri Renjo La Pass?

  • Ascend Gokyo Ri for astounding mountain views
  • Challenging crossing of Renjo La (5360m), a high mountain pass
  • View the north-face of Mount Everest from ‘Scoundrel’s View’
  • Visit the Gokyo Lakes and walk alongside Nzogumpa Glacier, the longest glacier in Nepal
  • Experience Sherpa culture and hospitality

 Is this trip suitable for you?

  • This is a challenging trek that takes you to elevations above 5000 metres. You need to be physically as well as mentally strong to do this trek. 
  • Though no technical climbing is involved, this trek takes you across a difficult and inhospitable terrain. Not for beginners.  
  • The actual trekking lasts for 10 days. Each day you will be spending around 5-6 hours on the trail. 
  • You will be stopping at teahouses (mountain lodges) run by locals for food and rest. Beyond Namche, the facilities offered at teahouses may be very basic and utilitarian. 
  • Not many trekkers choose this route. Expect to walk along a secluded trail. If you prefer to keep your distance from the hordes of trekkers, you will certainly love this trek.

   Standard or Deluxe - Choose your travel style!

Planning a vacation calls for many decisions. One of the easiest ways to travel is to book with a travel company and let the experts take care of the planning and logistics. But some travelers want the freedom to explore options that packaged tours rarely offer. Taking into account the needs of an average traveler, we have designed two packages - Standard and Deluxe. A Standard Package offers a combination of services at a lower price and freedom to do certain things your own way (for instance, choosing your own accommodation in the city). Choose a Deluxe Package, if you want to take the stress out of planning your trip. After booking a Deluxe Package, you can rest easy knowing that the experts are there to plan your holiday.
If you have zeroed in on your destination, all you have to do is select the package that suits your travel style and book your trip!

Arrival on: Kathmandu, Nepal | Departure from: Kathmandu, Nepal

DAY 1:

Arrive in Kathmandu (1,400 m/4,593 ft) & Trek Preparation expand

Filled with medieval pagoda-roofed temples and modern high-rises, the city of Kathmandu is Nepal’s nerve centre. After landing at the airport, our representative will meet you and transfer you to your hotel. Rest and get refreshed. Later attend a pre-trek briefing and meet your trek leader and team members. Get answers to your queries (if you have any) and check your gear. Later on rest or stroll around Thamel and feel its lively vibe. Since you have an early morning flight to Lukla the following day, it is advisable to schedule your arrival to Kathmandu in the morning or during daytime.

Entering the Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo you follow a scenic trail filled with mani stones, chortens (Buddhist memorials) and snow-covered Himalayan peaks. Cross several metal suspension bridges decorated with Buddhist prayer flags and follow a zigzag path snaking past pine and rhododendron trees. You finally breathe a sigh of relief as you spy the stone cottages of Namche peering at you from above. Enter the town via a Buddhist traditional gate known as ‘kani’ or ‘gateway chorten’.

DAY 4:

At Namche Bazaar - Acclimatization hike to Everest View Hotel (3,963m/13,000ft) expand
Walking Distance: 3-4 hours

Take a day off to acclimatise. Carved around a steep mountainside, Namche is the business hub of Khumbu Region. Here you will find luxury and budget lodges, coffee shops, bakeries, internet cafes, ATM booths, bars and souvenir shops. If you happen to be in Namche on a Saturday, don’t forget to visit the ‘Saturday Market’ - an open air market where traders from as far as Tibet and the Terai lowlands set up shop. Take an acclimatisation hike to the Everest View Hotel, located high above Namche, and enjoy stunning views of Mount Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam.  The steep climb to the viewpoint takes you past the grassy airstrip of Shyangboche(3780m), one of the highest airfields in the world. If you are not too tired, visit the nearby Khumjung village and its monastery which houses the scalp of Yeti (the abominable snowman). Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

DAY 5:

Trek Namche Bazaar to Phortse Thanga (3,680m/12,073ft) expand
Walking Distance: 6 km (5 - 6 hours)

Your ascent offers splendid views of Everest, Lhotse and other peaks. Walk past inspiring Himalayan scenery to reach the tiny hamlet of Phortse Thanga.

DAY 6:

Trek Phortse Thanga to Machhermo (4,470m/ 14,665ft) expand

You come across alpine meadows and summer camps of yak herders and breathtaking views of Thamserku, Cho Oyu and Kantega as you walk past Dole. An uphill climb brings you to Machhermo. The village of Machhermo is a cluster of stone cottages situated below the terminal moraine of Nzogumpa Glacier. You have now reached the 4000 metre mark.  Don’t forget to keep yourself properly hydrated to ward off any signs of acute mountain sickness. Overnight in Machermo.

DAY 7:

Trek Machhermo to Gokyo (4,790m/15,715ft) expand
Walking Distance: 7km (4 - 5 hours)

Wake up early and hit the trail to Gokyo. Today’s trek takes you to a solitary and ruggedly beautiful terrain. Walking via Pangkha you take a breather to enjoy fascinating views of Cholatse. The trail follows the side of Nzogumpa Glacier, the longest glacier in Nepal which originates at the foot of Cho Oyu in Tibet and tumbles down to the Gokyo Valley in Nepal. As you traverse the glacier, tread carefully on the moraine and loose rocks. Continue on an even path and approach the first of the mesmerizing Gokyo lakes, Longbanga Tsho. Walk past the second lake and head to the settlement of Gokyo set on the eastern shore of the largest of the Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Tsho or Dudh Pokhari. Make your way to a teahouse and take a well-deserved rest. Overnight in Gokyo.

Wake up early to climb Gokyo Ri, a small hill located near the settlement of Gokyo. Walk past the lake and a small rivulet that feeds the lake. It is a steep uphill climb to the summit of Gokyo Ri. If you make this Gokyo Ri trek before sunrise you will be rewarded with some of the most dramatic views you will ever come across in this planet. As the sun slowly rises, the dark purplish landscape gradually comes to life. Snow covered mountains turn golden and the emerald waters of the Gokyo lakes shimmer like a million diamonds. Get busy clicking as many pictures as you can !

After descending Gokyo Ri you have the option to hike to Ngozumpa Tsho (fifth lake) via Thonak Tsho (fourth and the deepest of the Gokyo Lakes) and visit the viewpoint known as ‘Scoundrel’s View’. As you approach the fifth lake you are at the threshold of Tibet. You almost reach Tibetan territory at ‘Scoundrel’s View,’ a viewpoint from where you can enjoy close up views of Mount Everest’s north-face, north ridge, west ridge and the south col. Also savour awe-inspiring views of two other eight thousanders - Cho Oyu (8210m) and Lhotse(8516m). ‘Scoundrel’s View’  lies just few minutes hike from the fifth lake and is seldom visited by trekking groups. Overnight in Gokyo.

DAY 9:

Trek Gokyo to Lumde via Renjo La pass (5360m/17,585ft) expand
Walking Distance: 5 - 6 hours

Leave Gokyo and take a steep, snow covered trail to Renjo La. Follow your guide and tread carefully on the steep incline littered with loose stones. Pause time and again to take in the majestic views. As you approach the high pass of Renjo La, you reach the highest point of your trek at 5360m. The thin air during Renjo La Pass trekking makes every step a challenge.  After reaching the top of the pass descend down and follow a zigzag route to the village of Lumde.

DAY 10:

Trek Lumde to Namche Bazaar(3440m/11268ft) expand

Value for Money

This trek was tough, but overall I had a fantastic experience. Truth be told we walked through a harsh environment but the beauty of the landscape was mind-blowing. It was particularly difficult crossing the mountain pass as it snowed lightly and the temperatures were near freezing. This was one of the most difficult walks of my life. In the mountains every breathe counts as you take a step forward to reach your destination. But all the hard work was well worth the effort as I got to witness some magnificent views. The mountains were beautiful and so were the Gokyo Lakes. I wish I could have spent some more days in Gokyo. Our guide Surya was competent, knowledgeable and caring. The porters amazed me with their strength and humility. Thanks to Third World Adventures for a wonderful trip!

Because they are a local company and good value for money.
Yes.
I chose this trek as I wanted to visit the Gokyo Lakes.
The first sight of the Gokyo Lake. The hike upto Gokyo Ri was also memorable.
This is a challenging trek. Be prepared to walk along some tough trails.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If possible, we would suggest you to get your own trekking equipment. You can also buy them in Kathmandu or hire as well. Please note that Third Rock Adventures will not be providing you any equipment. We can definitely help you find stores to buy or rent

During the trek, the teahouses or lodges serve you bottled and filtered water which is generally safe and have to be paid for. We encourage our guest to use iodine and other purifying agents to treat the water before drinking. Mineral water is also sold at the teahouses.

We carry a first-aid box with us while trekking. But if you want you can carry along some essential medicines like ibuprofen, codeine, paracetamol, lozenges, anti-diarrhea tablets and diamox for AMS.

The minimum age to do this trek is 14. One needs to be in good physical shape and should be free from respiratory and heart conditions. This Gokyo Everest Trek itinerary allows enough time for proper acclimatization. But to be on the safe side we advise you to visit a doctor and take proper consultation before booking this trip


QUESTION AND ANSWER

We have heard about the flight to Lukla, how dangerous is it?
You must have read or seen videos about Lukla as one of the most dangerous airports in the world. Well, it is true but there is nothing to be worried about. Nowadays there are at least 50 to 60 flights that take trekkers to Lukla on a good day. The aircraft and the pilots are really good and experienced. If the weather is bad, the airlines will delay the flights or cancel.
