Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and other high peaks from the top of the pass are spellbinding. The pass is a difficult pass to cross. You must require a good physical strength. Also, at the high altitudes, you might be a victim of altitude sickness. Also, climbing up and down the rugged and ice-covered trails with stone steps at some places is more challenging. You must be cautious not to get hurt. The best time of the year for Gokyo and Renjo La pass trek is during Autumn (September, October, and November) and Spring (March, April, and May). During these seasons, the weather and temperature at the trekking areas remain fairly stable most of the times. Also, the surrounding vistas are beautiful and clear.

Gokyo and Renjo La pass trekking in off seasons (Monsoon and Winter) are difficult but not impossible. The varying weather and temperature at the higher altitudes on the trek make it more difficult to trek. Walking over the rugged and wet monsoon trails is very difficult. Likewise, trekking over the trails covered in snow during winter is tough. Make sure you pack adequate gears.

Trip Note

From Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu flight may be delayed by few hours or even canceled due to bad weather condition. So, you should be prepared for such flight delays or cancellations. But we will do our best to avoid such conditions. In case of flight cancellation, we will try to get you on the flight for the next day. Getting an early flight for the next day may not be possible during the high season so, we can arrange a flight by helicopter as well but it will be an extra cost. If we have a group of 4- 5 people, we can charter a helicopter from Kathmandu – Lukla.  It will be advisable to have extra days in Kathmandu before and after the trekking. We can arrange your cultural / adventure tours (such as sightseeing tours, rafting, jungle safari, with extra cost if the extra days are not used for the flight conditions to Lukla and back.

If the flight is delayed and canceled for several days which could disturb your onward journey, you are free to choose trekking in Annapurna, Langtang and other regions and we are Halesi Treks arrange the alternative trek.

Accommodation

All the accommodation as per the itinerary is included in the package cost. Halesi Treks have chosen the 2/3 star hotel in the cities for your comfort and safety. The hotels can be upgraded to more deluxe ones upon your request. While trekking in the Mountain, our guides will choose the best available lodge of the village from their past experience. As some villages have limited number of lodges, in a peak season like in Spring and Autumn. Comfortable two men tent with mattress and four seasons sleeping bag will be provided for the camping trek. Our crew will try to set the camp in a scenic place. All the hotel and camping accommodations are as per twin sharing basis unless you are of a different gender.

Nepal is such an easy place to get several vegetarian options so no worries if you are a vegetarian or non-vegetarian. You can enjoy typical Nepali food as well as continental, Italian, Indian and Tibetan. Freshly cooked and hygienic dinner and breakfast are served at the camp and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination which will be prepared by our own chef. Only breakfast is served in Kathmandu whilst farewell dinner on the eve of your international departure is served from our side. All the meals (B/L/D) are on full board basis during the trek.

Trekking Crew

An experienced and licensed Guide and necessary porters will assist you during the trek. In a group with more than 8 clients, 2 guides will be provided for the betterment in service. In a teahouse trek, generally, one porter is provided for every two clients who carry between 15 to 18 kg. However, on a camping journey, more porters are required. All the camping types of equipment such as kitchen, dining, dome and toilet tents, kitchen equipment, fuel, and all consumable goods have to be carried from Kathmandu which needs more manpower. All of our guides and porters are fully insured so you don't' have to worry about them in case of emergency. Our team believes that our customer care is the first priority.

Physical Fitness and Experience

Gokyo and Renjo La Trek is trek which is fit for those who have the ability to walk 5-7 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 8 hours of walking as well. Goyo and Renjo La Trek is altitude trek which demands physical, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is not required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to Halesi Treks.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy a good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double-check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Seasons

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Gokyo and Renjo La Trek Where normally days are sunny, the temperature is perfect, the sky is clear and Mountain remains crystal. This trek can be done in Monsoon (June to August ) but you should not expect the great weather and Mountain view.  You can do it in Winter (December to February) if you are used to with extreme cold temperature.

Ground Transportation

Highway in Nepal is safe, however, sometimes transport can be halted due to landslide, strike or by political unrest. Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In that case, Halesi Treks can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.

  • A spectacular 2-week experience in the Himalayas with Niru and Halesi Treks!

    A spectacular 2-week experience in the Himalayas with Niru and Halesi Treks!

    Rating: November 09,2018

    Myself and 2 friends enjoyed an amazing 2 weeks trekking through Gokyo and the Renjo La pass with Niru as our guide and Prakesh and Purna as porters. I contacted a few companies when initially setting out to arrange the trip. Man Kumar at Halesi Treks was consistently helpful, keen to offer a range of options and advice, and together we were able to put together an itinerary that was ideally suited our interests and experience. Throughout the planning stage, Man Kumar always responded very quickly to queries.
    It can feel slightly nerve-wracking organizing a trip like this from the other side of the world but from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu, Niru our guide did everything he could to set us at ease. On the trip itself, Niru consistently went above and beyond. We discussed plans each evening as a group. Niru’s extensive experience allowed him to suggest various options for us along the way, always taking our needs and experience into account. Whilst meeting other groups and guides along the way it was quite clear Niru went to more effort than he needed to ensure we had the best possible trip, also always ensuring we got the best possible service from lodge owners, knowing when to ask for the best rooms, etc. Niru tailored the trek to challenge us a little as we’d wanted whilst also offering sound advice on pacing along the way. His knowledge and experience of the Himalayas were as good as we could have hoped for. Lastly, we’re most grateful for Niru smoothing the path to get us on our Lukla flights in both directions with no major delays (none by Himalayan standards anyway). We met lots of people who had a much less pleasant experience getting in and out of the hills.
    Having traveled with Halesi I now couldn’t recommend them highly enough for a trekking experience in Nepal. Man Kumar even came to meet us at the end of our trip to check that everything had gone as planned. It was quite clear that he takes real pride in offering the best possible service to his clients and I’d love to be able to do business with Halesi again in the future.
    Many thanks to Man Kumar, Niru, Prakesh, and Purna for a spectacular 2-week trip!!!
