Best time for Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek
Trekking in Gokyo Renjo Pass is possible throughout the year, however, Autumn and Spring have the best weather for the best experience in the Khumbu region. Though you can also trek in pre-winter but trekking in summer is more difficult.
The season is one of the best seasons for this trekking. In Nepal spring falls from the months of March to May. you will have a moderate climate with the mesmerizing view of mountains and colorful blooming of Rhododendron.
Autumn is the best season for trekking in the Khumbu region. In this season, you will have a clear blue sky with majestic views of the mountains. Similarly, you will have a mild temperature just right for trekking.
We don’t prefer trekking in Summer. Due to continuous rainfall and snowfall trekking can be very difficult. Similarly, due to fog, you won’t have a clear view of the mountains. But if you are trekking for some research on fauna and flora it is best for you.
Trekking in winter is a bit difficult due to extreme climate and heavy snowfall. Though you can trek in pre winter like December which is not too cold or not too hot.
