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, 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 a mesmerizing view of mountains and the 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.

Accommodation during  Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek

Accommodation depends upon your choice. On the trek, you can choose the accommodation of Tea house and Camping.

Tea house trekking

Tea houses trekking are more comfortable and cheaper. You will have more facilities. The Sherpa people mostly run the tea houses en routes. You can stay in the tea house which provides lodging and flooding with a hot shower, attached bathroom, WiFi and mostly homeliness. In this type of trekking, you will have warm hospitality and friendliness. Dormitories are also available in this trek for the trekkers with a limited budget which is like 3 to 4 $ per night with common toilets and bathrooms. Talking about cleanliness, you will get a clean room and surroundings.

Camping Trek

Camping trekking is more difficult and expensive than tea house trek. But spending the nights in tented camps is worth those difficulties. This type of trek is mostly common in restricted areas. This region doesn’t have enough facilities to accommodate large people so you can also do this type of trekking.

Food During  Gokyo Renjo La pass Trek Trek

Nepal is famous for its variety of cuisine and it is easy to cater to your needs. If you inform us earlier, you can get any food like vegetarian/vegan, gluten or lactose-free. In Kathmandu, the itinerary includes breakfast, but lunch and dinner must be covered on your own. On the trek, all the breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided.

On the pre-departure day, we will have a traditional Nepali dinner in Thamel for the celebration of your successful achievement of the trek.

Talking about the water, it is not a big problem here. On the way, you can fill the water in the tea houses or you can buy a bottle but a higher altitude results in a higher cost of the water bottle. Therefore, taking your own water bottle is the best way to minimize water costs.

    star rating  尼泊尔5天小trip - 我和朋友的飞机是晚上到达加德满都机场。出了机场很顺利地就找到了接机的小伙伴,check in入住都十分顺利,我们的行程是第二天马上去纳加阔特看日出,所以当时就只定了一天的酒店,但是由于前一天有点累,第二天两个人居然睡过头了,但是酒店人员人很好,提醒了我们退房之后,还给了我们足够的时间收拾东西才退房。然后就直接是司机带我们去了纳加阔特。路上时间稍微有点久,但司机人很好,风景也不错,到了新酒店check in,刚刚好是看日落的时间。酒店老板很热情的招呼我们,还特意给我们说了很多明天看日出的小tips,然后我们就选了个位子坐下,喝喝酒,聊聊天,吹吹风,非常舒服。第二天设了闹钟,早早起来看日出,景色真的是太让人震撼,第一次有那种开阔的感觉。拍了很多很美的照片,然后就吃了早餐出发去博卡拉了。我们没有去trekking,因为时间有限,但在博卡拉就是各种悠闲散漫地生活,完全放空,什么都不想,望着鱼尾峰发呆,滑翔伞,在费瓦湖上泛舟,吃吃喝喝,泡泡吧,感受一下风土人情,还看到了一些当地的传统手工艺。虽然没能去trekking有点遗憾,但也给自己留一个再回去一次的理由。整个行程基本上只要说出自己的想法就都会被满足,很舒心,不用费心神,真的很放松,可以从忙忙碌碌的生活中抽身而出,过一种不一样的生活!
