The Gokyo Peak (5480 m) ascent is one of the highlights of this trek. We stay here to experience and enjoy the scenery which includes the splendid views of Everest (8848 m), Makalu, Cho Oyo (8153 m) and Lhotse (8511 m) etc. The Renjo Pass route is off the usual beaten track.
This short route to Renjo La via Gokyo Ri enables trekkers who have a limited time to discover the most famous beauties of Nepal. It is set amongst breathtaking high mountain scenery and the route leads through the Khumbu. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen. Through small yak-grazing settlements, we reach the Gokyo lakes.
